Uplifting & positive

Physically it is very strongly antibacterial due to the high citral content (citral can be also quite sensitising for the skin though). Honey myrtle oil is also useful for the respiratory system.
Blends with: other Australian native oils, citrus oils, lavender & vetiver.
It is steam distllled from the flowering heads, twigs, leaves & stems.
Shelf life: It will keep for around 2-3 years after opening if stored with lid tightly closed in a cool, dark area.
Honey Myrtle Essential Oil Review
The honey myrtle essential oil has an absolutely gorgeous scent. Have added a few drops of this oil to the unscented Luxurious Body Oil and after applying it makes the entire room smell divine as well. Also works well in the oil burner.
My new favorite oil
I always buy Lemon Myrtle oils but I was recommended this Honey Myrtle. It has similar citrus fragrant like a Lemon Myrtle but it also has mild sweet scent in this. I loved it. I always use this oil in my workshop and my customers always comment that they love this fragrant. This became my new favorite and I do recommend this to everyone.
