Bow down to the Queen of lemon herbs! Traditionally used as a healing oil, Lemon Myrtle is also a delicious way to add flavour to savoury dishes (especially kangaroo, lamb and chicken). Use it sparingly though – a little bit of flavour goes a long way!
The Lemon Myrtle is a beautiful Australian shrub, whose leaves have been used by Indigenous Australians for a swag of purposes. The leaves can be used fresh or dried and oil can be extracted through distillation. Traditionally used both to flavour foods and as a healing oil, Lemon Myrtle boasts significant antioxidant and mineral properties, is high in Vitamin C and has a high oil content which is antimicrobial. Also regarded as a useful antiseptic, it has the world’s strongest and purest source of natural citral – the oil that gives “lemon” its characteristic flavour.
Lemon Myrtle is undoubtedly one of the most popular Australian native herbs, with its fresh aroma of citrus, with delicate menthol touches and a strong lemon flavour, which is sweet and refreshing.
