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.

Tea tree is a protective agent for the skin; it works as an anti-inflammatory encouraging blood flow to a specific area (being a stimulant), which speeds up the healing process and increases the rate of new tissue and cellular growth. Tea tree oil helps remove excess water and salts from the body while cleaning the pores. This further prevents the occurrence of acne. 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.
