Projects: Native herbs & spices

Lemon myrtle is one of the most widely recognised and versatile native herb with a beautiful lemon fresh fragrance and is used in tea infusions, food, cosmetics and home cleaning products. Like lemon myrtle, many Australian native herbs and spices are already commercialised such as mountain pepper, bush tomato and anise myrtle. Given the success and uptake of these commercialised products, there is huge potential to expand the range with novel native herbs and spices such as salt bush, gulbarn and jilungin.
