Also known as the Lemon Eucalyptus or lemon-scented gum, the Eucalyptus Citriodora plant is a gum tree that is native to Australia. It is a tall tree that features smooth bark, narrow blue-green leaves, and a refreshing aroma of lemon.
The leaves are dried and steam distilled, causing them to release volatile aromatic compounds with some unique properties. This is how Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil is extracted.
Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil is known for its cleansing and revitalising abilities, and therefore it makes an excellent surface cleanser or air freshener around the home. Furthermore, it can be applied topically to cleanse the hair and skin. When sprayed on the skin, it also helps to repel a variety of insects.
When diffused, Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil will add a revitalising aroma to your home whilst helping you to feel uplifted as you inhale the invigorating lemon scent.
