Product Overview

Our fresh organic Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil has an enlivening yet calming aroma that is very fresh, cool, lemony, with rosy, citronella-like notes and a sweet balsamic, slightly floral drydown; it has a softer, less cineolic aroma than our other Eucalyptus oils. Eucalyptus citriodora (now known as Corymbia citriodora) is part of a group of oils (including Litsea Cubeba, Melissa, Lemon Verbena and Citronella) that feature the soft, lemony aldehydes – distinctly different molecules from limonene, the tart, citrus-sourced terpene. Lemon Eucalyptus oil adds these lively, lemony (non-citrus) top notes to natural perfume formulations.

For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used the leaves of Eucalyptus for various incense and skincare applications. Commonly known as lemon-scented gum, the tree grows to a height of 80-130 feet, with white to coppery pink bark, glossy green, lemon-scented, lance-shaped leaves and white flowers. Once endemic to north-eastern Australia, it has been widely introduced in tropical and subtropical regions of the world to be used as an ornamental, for reforestation, and for timber, pulp and essential oil production.

Unlike other cineole-rich Eucalyptus oils, Lemon Eucalyptus contains very little cineole and typically 70-85% citronellal. The fresh and pleasant aroma of Lemon Eucalyptus is well suited for diffusion into the air, outdoor sprays, foot lotions, chest rubs, and oily skin preparations. It is uplifting and refreshing in soap and fragrance formulations and a favorite of massage practitioners for addition in muscle, joint, and post-workout massage blends.
