“Hard work and dedication and perseverance and determination got this business to where it is today, word of mouth being the best advertising.”
Roger & Eileen Bird
Lemon Myrtle Fragrances provides naturally good personal care and cleaning products for all the family and in the home, using 100% Australian Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil and other Australian native botanical oils.
Lemon Myrtle Fragrances is an Australian family owned business established by the Bird Family around the 1990s. The business originated in northern NSW when Roger and Eileen Bird and family planted one of the first Lemon Myrtle plantations and started selling soap at markets. The family worked tirelessly with manufacturers to produce personal care and household products focusing on natural formulas using plant derived ingredients and away from “the more popular at the time” animal, petrochemical and synthetic ingredients.
Lemon Myrtle Fragrance products are free from Sodium Laurel Sulphate, Sodium Laureth Sulphate, aluminium, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oils, artificial fragrances and colours.
Our products are not tested on animals, and mostly, use plant derived ingredients. The exceptions are our Lip Balm which contains nourishing beeswax; and The Soapman Goats Milk Lemon Myrtle Soap containing Goats Milk and preferred by many customers for its creamy richness.
Proudly Australian owned, Lemon Myrtle Fragrances supports:
In 2014 Lemon Myrtle Fragrances and The Soapman joined forces when Roger and Eileen Bird decided it was time to pursue other life interests and Michael and Maria Pickles, who shared the same strong commitment to producing natural products good for the health and environment, bought Lemon Myrtle Fragrances. The Pickles continued to drive the fundamental philosophy of the business:
Acquired by the de Pagter family in 2018, we are proud to continue the traditions and customs established by both the Bird and Pickles families.
"It is our belief, when you learn something from people, it is a gift and it is essential that the learning is preserved and built upon".
We are Kerry and Peter de Pagter, supported on this journey by our children Cassi and Ben, and we are committed to preserving the heritage which is Lemon Myrtle Fragrances.
One of the things we value most when talking with customers, is hearing how they have loved and used the product for years, just like us. As Roger said “word of mouth is the best advertising.”.
We were introduced to the brand about 15 years ago and have been regular Lemon Myrtle Fragrance soap users and absolute converts to the whole range ever since. When we heard Michael and Maria were thinking of moving on, we knew this was our future.
Our focus for Lemon Myrtle Fragrances is to continue the hard work and dedication and perseverance and determination already invested to build this business to where it is today.
We look forward to continuing to delight customers for years to come with the range of products we have all come to love. We are also keen to:
