Lemon Myrtle might just be one of the best known Australian Native plants and for good reason.
The Lemon Myrtle is a rainforest tree. Not just a perfect cooking addition, the leaves are also the purest source of natural citral (90-98%) making lemon myrtle a powerful essential oil. It has a refreshing clean citrus aroma and taste and goes in just about everything. Dubbed the ‘Queen of the Herbs’ she is more lemony than a lemon will ever be.

Our products are all made in Australia from 100% locally sourced, seasonal and wild harvested produce.
In our efforts to be zero waste and plastic free, and with the changes to recycling in Australia, we will be phasing out all bags that you purchase. For now you may receive your spices, teas and home products in either black, white or clear plastic, and once that is all gone our amazing new compostable plant-based packaging will be what you will receive products in.
