Lemon Scented Tea Tree Essential Oil – Leptospermum petersonii – is one of our most popular Australian oils as it is so versatile and has that refreshing lemony note which is uplifting and vibrant. This species grows in various locations and climates across southern Australia including the island of Tasmania.
Steam distilled from the leaves and twigs, Lemon Scented Tea Tree Essential Oil is high in citronellal, geraniol, citral and pinene which means it has a diverse number of uses.
As a non toxic cleaning agent, either on its own or blended with eucalyptus oil, Lemon Scented Tea Tree oil will aid in keeping your home or office clean and fresh.
If diffused, Lemon Scented Tea Tree will clear and refresh the air – a good opportunity to stay relatively free of colds and flu if diffused daily in places where people meet regularly or in the home and/or office.
The aromatic and astringent aroma of this oil can help deter insects and those pesky mozzies. Try in a diffuser inside with Lemon Scented Gum and Palmarosa as a flying insect deterrent.
Ideal to blend this oil with a carrier oil like Sweet Almond. Coming from the Myrtacea family, Lemon Scented Tea Tree is related to the common Tea Tree and therefore has similar aromatherapy benefits as a decongestant or in salves having similar attributes to Tea Tree – Manuka.
To keep your oil for a long time, place it in a cool area below 30° and out of the reach of children. Use only with advice from a medical professional if pregnant. Do not ingest at any time or use on the skin without a carrier oil.
