Eucalyptus Lemon (Eucalyptus citriodora) – Essential Oil


SKU: 15238

Lemon Eucalyptus oil is derived from a lemon-scented blue gum eucalyptus plant, a tall tree with smooth bark. With many topical benefits, Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil provides powerful antioxidant support to the skin.

The Australian Aboriginals considered lemon eucalyptus a fever-reducer, a solution for gastric problems, and a remedy for infectious diseases. The same herb is used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine in steam for clearing nasal congestion, easing symptoms of colds, flu, and asthma. A paste of the leaves was used in various cultures to heal wounds, skin infections, blisters, joint and other rheumatic pains, and fungal infections.

Of all essential oils researched as an insect repellent, lemon eucalyptus has shown outstanding results. Lemon eucalyptus oil is an ingredient in many commercial mosquito repellents. Studies have shown this ingredient to be equally effective to Deet.

How to use:
