Properties and Uses

Lemon Myrtle is an antiseptic, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, calmative, sedative and corrective. The plant is an astringent (causing the contraction of skin cells and other body tissues) with antioxidant and antigenotoxic activities that may be chemo-preventative. The essential oil contains alpha-pinene, cineole and myrtenol and is used for asthma coughs, sore throats, common cold, influenza, bronchitis, indigestion, molluscum contagiosum (a viral infection of the skin or occasionally of the mucous membranes), warts and herpes simplex.

Citronella oil fights depression and gives relief from anxiety, sadness, and negative feelings. It induces a fresh, happy feeling and hope. The crisp, rich citrus or lemon-like aroma of this oil drives away body odour and is used in deodorants and body sprays. This essential oil also stimulates the immune mechanisms and the metabolism of the body. As an insect repellant, this is one of the most commonly used properties of this essential oil, as it kills and keeps away insects. It has been found particularly effective on a species of mosquito, called Aedes Aegypti whose bite causes the dreaded Yellow Fever. Citronella is also effective on lice and fleas. Source details.

Goat’s milk is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin or conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. It is also perfect for healthy skin that wants to stay that way. Goat’s milk contains many vitamins but is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue. Vitamin A in Goat’s milk is also known to reduce lines, wrinkles and control acne. Other vitamins present in Goat’s milk are B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12. The B vitamins are water soluble and play an important role in cell metabolism in the body, including regulating metabolism, maintaining healthy skin and muscle tone, enhancing the immune and nervous system function and promoting cell growth.

Goat's milk also contains vitamin C, D, E and K. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) which is probably the most well-known of the antioxidants, reduces free radicals in the body.  Vitamin D is most noted for its role in promoting calcium absorption. Small amounts of vitamin E is also found in Goat’s milk and shares the status of vitamin C as another of the better-known antioxidants, helping to prevent oxidative damage to cells and preventing cancer. Lastly, vitamin K which is best known as a blood-clotting agent and assists with a multitude of conditions; stretch marks, spider veins, scars, dark spots and stubborn circles under the eyes, as well as wounds and bruises.
