Zest Myrtle is a rainforest tree which naturally occurs in only a couple of areas of south east Queensland. The tree is extremely rare; Zest Myrtle can be found near Gympie and in the Noosa Heads National Park where it grows to a maximum height of 30 metres in the wild.

Ingredients: 100% v/v pure Zest Myrtle essential oil.

Production method: Steam distilled from the leaves of the tree.

Use: A gentle, clearing oil that is useful for clearing chest congestion, chesty coughs, and the respiratory system. It's also very anti-microbial so a useful oil to use in a sick room in a burner or diffuser. It's more gentle than thyme oil so suitable for children and elderly.
