Lemon Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus citriodora (Hook.)
Why Lemon Eucalyptus? This essential oil’s aroma is fresh, uplifting, and rosy with notes like citronella and lemon as it dries out. With its dominant constituent being the aldehyde citronellal, lemon eucalyptus essential oil is an ideal addition to your summer bug-out blend. Lemon eucalyptus essential oil can also provide nourishing and restorative support to the skin.
Quality Assured: Our lemon eucalyptus essential oil is responsibly sourced from Brazil. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the E. citriodora tree. Every batch of oil is produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
Independent third-party lab reports including GC/MS and pesticide testing results are available upon request.
