Lemon Eucalyptus has antifungal and antibacterial properties that make it useful against Streptococcus and the citrus component to the scent is a relaxant. It is very useful for herpes, arthritis and signs of heat such as thirst, dryness, thick mucus and fever. Lemon Eucalyptus is a useful insect repellant that smells pleasant.
Our fresh Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil from South Africa has a refreshing and relaxing aroma. In addition to its aromatherapeutic benefits, it is especially useful as an insect repellant due to its high citronellal content. It adds fresh, non-citrus overtones to natural perfume formulations.
