    Recently I received an order from Essentially Australia including a bottle of Australian Balm Mint Bush (Prostanthera melissifolia). This is the first time I have smelt this oil and I must say it has become a new favourite of mine.
    When applied to a scent strip, the Australian Balm Mint Bush had a definite smell of mint that was fresh, clean and clear, it was not sweet or sharp. Other notes were eucalyptus or camphoraceous, pine, slightly herbaceous and grounding. This may sound like a strange comment to make but to me, this oil shares a smell with many of the Australian Native oils, the unique smell of the Australian bush.

    This is a REALLY lovely fragrance, complex and simple all at the same time.
    I wouldn’t want to add anything to this either. How does one improve on perfection.

      Hi Lorraine, we would pretty much agree with that, many thanks.
