Lemon Ironbark Essential Oil – Eucalyptus staigeriana – is known for its antiseptic prowess, air freshening, uplifting, relaxing qualities and will clear the air by removing bad room smells and odours. The essential oil from Lemon Ironbark can also offer relief from troubled breathing in winter and many claim that it helps to reduce snoring.
Lemon Ironbark Essential Oil offers a pleasant, fresh, gently sweet, lemon scent and whilst it is a member of the Eucalyptus family it offers a more subtle aroma and is certainly one of the pleasant Eucalyptus aromas.

The oil is also well suited to blending with Lavender, Bergamot, Cardamom and Copaiba Oleoresin.
