What is Lemon Eucalyptus?
Native to northeastern Australia, the Corymbia Citriodora tree typically grows to an average of 35 meters, but can grow up to as tall as 50 meters. Today, the tree is also found throughout Brazil and China. Also known as lemon-scented gum, the tree is commonly used for structural timber and is popularly cultivated both in Australia and overseas. Additionally, the tree can be used in honey production!
Steam distilled from the leaves of the tree, lemon eucalyptus oil’s aroma is fresh and lemony scent is subtly sweet with notes of citronella.
