Eucalyptus Lemon Scented Essential Oil offers the benefits of two of the most powerful essential oils in the world. With its sweet and rosy lemon-citronella aroma and medicinal therapeutic qualities, this oil is the perfect combination for a Eucalyptus lover seeking the same benefits with a new fragrance.
With more than 300 known species of Eucalyptus, this type of oil has been valued throughout history by Australian Natives as a “cure-all” for everything from malaria to respiratory problems. Eucalyptus oil was not formally distilled and distributed until the 18th century, but it quickly spread like wildfire as the medical community realised its many applications. Eucalyptus Lemon Scented Essential oil in particular is a more recent addition to the essential oil community.
The Eucalyptus citriodora tree is named after the Latin term “citriodorus”, which means “lemon-scented”. The tree grows as tall as 50 meters in temperate and tropical northeastern Australia, and has become very popular for honey production and structural timber as well. The Eucalyptus Lemon Scented Essential Oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the tree through steam distillation.
Eucalyptus Lemon Scented Essential Oil can be identified by its pale yellow colour and sweet and fresh lemony scent with hints of woodiness and citronella. Like its other Eucalyptus counterparts, Lemon Eucalyptus is well-loved for its properties that range from antibacterial and anti inflammatory to anti-infectious and expectorant.
Emotionally, pure Lemon Eucalyptus oil can energise a tired and overworked mind. It is known to improve concentration, alleviate sorrow, and equalise emotions.
Physically, Lemon Eucalyptus can fight fungus and bacteria, making it an effective natural treatment for athlete’s foot. It can also help to relieve and assuage respiratory conditions such as asthma, sinusitis, coughs, and phlegm. This is an excellent oil to diffuse in the winter months when germs and bacteria tend to collect in the air and cause illness.
In addition to these physical and emotional benefits, Eucalyptus Lemon Scented Essential Oil is gaining popularity as a safe and natural bug deterrent. It is a great alternative to dangerous repellants composed of carcinogens and other toxins.
