Lemon Myrtle is one of Australia’s most powerful superfoods. The flowering plant can be found in the subtropical rainforests of central & south-eastern Queensland and has been used by Indigenous Australians for thousands of years to flavour foods and as a healing oil.
Now, it is quickly becoming recognized by the aromatherapy industry for its incredible aroma while it is also being recognised for its culinary potential due to its incredible flavour that is commonly used in savoury and sweet dishes. Furthermore, the plant is getting recognition for its health benefits, which include a high amount of antioxidant, anti-fungal and antibiotic properties and its ability to balance micro flora of the gut, supporting overall healthy gut.
It is the Roogenic mission to keep supporting and promoting Australian culture and encouraging everyday Australians and other nationalities to realise the potential of native ingredients in our very own backyard. As such it is important for us to utilise the incredible properties of Lemon Myrtle and other bush plants by incorporating them into our range of spices, teas, honey and other bush food products, making Lemon Myrtle easy to access.
