Perry's Lemon Myrtle
The Perry family established one of the first commercial Lemon Myrtle plantations nearly 10 years ago and is situated on the Mid North Coast of NSW, Australia. This is a highly conducive region for growing Lemon Myrtle trees in their native environment and as a result we have been able to produce a very high quality of oil and are able to provide the consumer a high quality product giving the most helpful benefits available from our PURE Lemon Myrtle Oil. Benefits can only be obtained from the use of pure essential oil, thus making its use in aromatherapy products such a success. One cannot obtain unique fragrance, flavour or the helpful antiviral and antibacterial properties from an artificial product.
Because of the very rich citral oil content, its soothing properties and its ability to be used in so many different industries, Lemon Myrtle Oil leads any other products in this classification.
All of Perry’s Lemon Myrtle products contain pure Lemon Myrtle Oil, which is helpful as an antibacterial, antiviral and germicidal ingredient and extracted from the Australian native tree “Backhousia Citriodora”(Lemon Myrtle Tree). Research by the Charles Sturt University has shown its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to be more effective than the better known Australian Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Alternanthera).
Seisen University in Tokyo, Japan has demonstrated the oil is effective in treating Herpes. Lemon Myrtle Oil is a superior source of Citral ( 95%) compared with Lemon oil extracted from Lemon peel (3-10%); Lemongrass oil contains 75% of Citral.
A Chromo graphic profile is available detailing over 50 compounds contained within Lemon Myrtle oil, all other compounds being quite safe.

Perhaps best of all aromatherapists can discover that when Lemon Myrtle oil is used in their practice, they will find an overwhelming response of how 'beautiful' the fragrance is to all that inhale it. Preliminary research is showing the oil and its wonderful fragrance to be anti depressive and genuinely uplifting.
