Eucalyptus citriodora Essential Oil
Eucalyptus citriodora (Corymbia citriodora) essential oil, commonly known as Lemon Eucalyptus or Lemon-scented Gum, is a close relative of the more widely known Eucalyptus globulus. Native to Australia, it’s a magnificent and heavily scented evergreen that reaches heights of over 115 feet. In addition to being an important source of essential oil, the tree is also used in the production of honey and for timber.
Although having the advantage of being gentler in its actions than Eucalyptus globulus, Lemon Eucalyptus has also been described by aromatherapists as having somewhat different benefits; while E. globulus has frequently been said by aromatherapists to be helpful for respiratory complaints, E. citriodora has been described as being a good choice for easing the discomfort of body aches and some types of fungal issues and may not be as effective in other regards.
The lovely, lemony aroma of this essential oil has been described as emotionally energizing and uplifting.
