Honey Myrtle Essential Oil Characteristics

Clear to yellow colour; watery consistency; a fresh citrus, lemon and honey scent.

Extraction and Farming Method

Honey Myrtle essential oil is extracted via the steam distillation of the middle and upper stem, branchlets and leaves.

Honey Myrtle is grown in plantations in south western Western Australia. A husband and wife team on their south west Western Australia rural property, discovered a sweet lemon plant down by some wetlands. They had discovered a lovely variant of Honey Myrtle, richer in lemon oil compounds than other Honey Myrtles. They have gone on to propagate over 20,000 of these superior lemon scented Honey Myrtles on their property.

Plantation trees are planted in rows and kept to a maximum height of 2 metres. They are machine harvested and are then steam distilled immediately to maintain the highest quality.

History – Honey Myrtle Essential Oil

Traditional Usage

At this point, there is no evidence of any traditional usage of the tree. However it would be fair to assume some kind of use was made of the leaves used as a perfume on the skin.

Early European Usage

As the tree was small to be used for timber (woodwork or firewood), it was not exploited during the two World Wars like Lemon Myrtle and Anise Myrtle were.

Present Day Usage

At present Honey Myrtle oil is grown in the south west of Western Australia and the pioneers who discovered this oil have continued to grow and distil the oil. It is from this farm that Essentially Australia secures its source of beautiful Honey Myrtle essential oil.

    Mix 5 drops of honey myrtle and 5 drops of cinnamon with 30mls of jojoba and you have my Goddess Blend for the crown chakra. My blends each have an Australian essential oil. The bee goddess speaks to us of dreaming with the land we live on, dreaming with the essence of the green living earth. Live a beautiful life, and you create beauty around you. Heal yourself and you heal the world.
    Warm Wishes Julie

    Adds a sweetness to all mixes with just a couple of drops.
    Fruity and delicious on its own, I find mixing with blue cypress brings out the best in both!!
    I don’t buy any essential oils other than Greg’s
