Lemon Myrtle & Lemongrass with Poppy Seed / Oatmeal
Lemon myrtle is native to Queensland and its distinct lemony scent is produced by crushing the leaves. The indigenous Australians have used this plant both in their cuisine and for healing.
The essential oil derived from this plant has antimicrobial properties, thus it's widely used as an antiseptic and surface disinfectant in healthcare and personal care industries.
My personal favourite as a soap scent for over 15 years, I have also consumed it as lemon myrtle tea and as lemon myrtle chocolate coated macadamias every time I travel to Australia.
Besides transporting you to Thailand, lemongrass also boasts similar properties as lemon myrtle. From flavouring food to drinks, lemongrass has the dynamic ability to stimulate yet relax, soothe and balance both the body and the mind.
The addition of poppy seeds (or Oatmeal) make this soap great as an exfoliant. You can use it to scrub your feet and heels as part of your pedicure treatment. Try it today.
