3 Top Reasons Lemon Myrtle is the Best Natural Deodorant

May 22, 2017 3 min read

In 2017 Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil is the leading key ingredient in natural deodorants. What are  the unique qualities of Australian Lemon Myrtle which make it so effective?


  1. Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia Citriadora) possesses powerful antimicrobial properties, meaning it can slow or stop the growth of a broad spectrum of microbes such as bacterial and fungal outbreaks and infections.
  2. Lemon Myrtle is 16 times stronger than phenol which is a chemical antibacterial agent. Lemon Myrtle is considerably stronger than tea tree oil which is also antibacterial.
  3. Lemon Myrtle contains the highest concentration of citral found in any plant in the world. Citral, a naturally occurring property, accounts for the incredibly powerful lemony scent of Lemon Myrtle. It is far more intense than lemon, with crisp and spicy tones.

How do antimicrobial and antibacterial agents work as deodorant?


Well, odors are created from the waste of bacterial activity. Certain conditions such as darkness, warmth and dampness promote increased bacterial activity.


Humans have sweat glands located in our armpits, groin and feet. These areas often provide the perfect conditions for bacteria and other microbes to thrive and cause body odor.


The application of a Lemon Myrtle essential oil based deodorant kills unwanted bacteria, fungus and even viruses which inhabit those warm moist areas, leaving only a fresh zesty lemon aroma.


Lemon Myrtle oil is intensely strong and could be injurious to your skin     if applied undiluted.


Unsafe and Unnatural Ingredients in Deodorants


Check the ingredients labels of your deodorants before purchase.


It is best to avoid deodorants containing talc which tends to clog pores and block perspiration and potentially lead to hair follicle infections.


Avoid products containing Aluminium which has been linked to Alzheimer's disease and although not conclusive it is better to be cautious.


Avoid Parabens in deodorants due to the suspected interference parabens have with estrogen production. Parabens also have potential link to breast cancer and other possible adverse cumulative effects with prolonged exposure.


Avoid cosmetic products containing animal fats, thus reducing animal cruelty.


Avoid Petro chemicals in deodorants and other personal products because of the three fold side effects of environmental degradation, known carcinogens and skin irritation.


Avoid Synthetic perfumes and mineral oils which are by product of petroleum production.

The Alternative to Chemical Deodorants.

The simple, safe and therapeutic alternative to chemical based cosmetics and deodorants is essential oils and plant blends from herbs, nuts, seeds and flowers.


The fresh, uplifting scent of Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil        appeals to women and men.


The all Australian company Lemon Myrtle Fragrances have been producing personal care products since 1990, incorporating Lemon Myrtle essential oil as the key active ingredient.


Their all natural deodorants also contain the supporting ingredients of Eucalyptus oil,  organic Aloe Juice and the beautiful soothing power of Camomile Flower extract to protect the sensitive underarm areas.


 Lemon Myrtle Fragrances Deodorant comes in a handy roll on bottle or a pump spray bottle. The pump spray is ideal for applying deodorant to your feet and inside shoes to control bacteria and odor.
