The complex essential oil is distilled from the leaves and used for flavouring and aromatherapy. The whole leaf is also used as a bushfood spice and herb-tea ingredient. It is used like a bay-leaf in savoury cooking, and is also used in confectionery and teas. It has a fruity-lemon flavour, with a rosemary-like edge. A small rough barked sclerophyll tree that grows naturally in pure stands on hills in the Palmer River region of Cape York.
