Description Ingredients & Technical Information
 
Lemon Eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora) is a tall tree, growing to 35 meters in height. It is also known as lemon-scented gum, blue spotted gum, lemon eucalyptus and eucalyptus citriodora. Corymbia citriodora has smooth, pale, uniform or slightly mottled bark, white to coppery in summer, and a conspicuously narrow-leaved crown which smells strongly of lemons. Pear-shaped buds are borne in clusters of three, formed in the corner of leaf and stem junctions, whilst fruit (capsules) are urn-shaped. The bark is smooth for the entire height of the tree, often powdery, shedding in thin curling flakes.

The essential oil of the lemon-scented gum mainly consists of citronellal (80%), produced largely in Brazil and China. While unrefined oil from the lemon eucalyptus tree is used in perfumery, a refined form of this oil is used in insect repellents, especially against mosquitoes.

Essential oil refined from the leaves of the tree can contained up to 98% citronella content. The smell of the essential oil can vary, but mostly includes a strong odor compatible alone to citronella oil, with a slight hint of lemon scent.
