A focus on Lemon Scented Eucalyptus.

Aromatherapy can play an important role in allowing us to thrive by improving our emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. Essential oils are thought to be beneficial for reducing stress and anxiety and improving the quality of our sleep. Busy lives and external factors can trigger these conditions, and awareness of this and how to avoid these stresses through self-care is crucial.

Essential oils are at the core of Washpool Skin Wellness and one of the essential oils we have been loving is the Australian Bush Lemon Scented Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus citriodora).

Its origin is from the native habitat of the coastal regions of Queensland.

The lemon-scented eucalyptus oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Lemon Scented Eucalyptus, which can also be known as Lemon Scented Gum.

The characteristics of the Lemon Scented Eucalyptus is a fresh, intense, citrus aroma, providing a sense of vitality and invigoration.

Lemon-scented eucalyptus is rich in aldehydes. Essential oils with high aldehyde content have excellent antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is also known to have excellent insect repellent properties.
