Eucalyptus citriodora essential oil is distilled from the leaves of what is considered a “stately” eucalyptus tree, growing to over 150ft tall. With slightly white/mottled bark, the narrow leaves release a strong lemon aroma.
About The Oil
The oil is often noted as a natural insect repellent that can be used in place of citronella. It is noted not just for mosquitoes, but ticks, silverfish and cockroaches.
The oil has traditionally been used in natural perfumery for its lemony scent, and as an insect repellent, particularly for those who prefer its aroma to citronella.
