Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) is a native rainforest tree that grows on the East Coast of Australia, from Brisbane to Rockhampton. It grows in a range of altitudes from 50 to over 800m above sea level. The sunshine Coast and Proserpine area are identified as main areas of natural strands. Backhousia citriodora (Lemon Myrtle) was named by Baron Ferdinand von Muller in 1853 after James Backhouse (1794-1869), an English nurseryman and keen botany collector. Backhouse was an early Quaker missionary who visited Australia in 1832-8, making observations of Australian flora and fauna as well as writing about Australian society at the time. In 1889 Joseph H. Maiden reported the potential use of Lemon Myrtle for commercial production and Schimmel & Co analysed the species in 1888 for chemical properties identifying citral for the first time. Lemon Myrtle is reputed to have a 'sweet' citral fragrance and taste. Other 'lemony' essential oils come from citrus (3-10% citral), lemon grass (75%), the tropical Verbena (74%), the Lemon Scented Tea Tree (80%) and the Lemon Myrtle, (90-97% citral). In vitro research suggests that Lemon Myrtle is a powerful antifungal agent as well as showing significant antimicrobial activity and as such may be suited as a sanitiser. Early last century Lemon Myrtle was used in Australia as a source of citral rich essential oil for lemon flavouring, but it was later replaced by other 'lemony' essential oils. By 1990 lemon myrtle was rediscovered as a potential new crop. Lemon Myrtle Refresh oils are collected from premium plantations in areas where the tree once grew. It is blended with natural oils including macadamia oil to produce a very unique fragrance soap. Lemon aromas are recognized as instilling a feeling of freshness and cleanliness. Market research has told us that Lemon Myrtle soap was very popular and was named Lemon Myrtle Refresh, a word that sprung to mind when consumers came in contact with the fragrance of Lemon Myrtle Soap.
