Eucalyptus Citriodora Oil
Unique among eucalyptus species, Eucalyptus citriodora is rich in citronellal. This gives it a fresh, lemony scent with notes of rose and camphor. Citronellal also contributes to Eucalyptus citriodora’s ability to discourage germs and bugs. While this species of eucalyptus can be used for the breath, it shines in natural cleaning blends. Dilute it in a carrier for topical blends to protect skin from the aldehyde components. Our certified organic Eucalyptus citriodora essential oil is steam distilled from the gray-green leaves of trees in the wild landscape of South Africa.
