Essential Oil: Lemon Eucalyptus

Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil is a worldwide favorite for a strong, spicy scent.

INTRODUCTION

 Artists often use essential oils to retard fermentation and mold growth in mixed paints and inks, and to keep some oil-based paints from drying out too fast, and to cover the ‘eggy’ odor of egg tempera. Essential oils are extracted from plants by steam or cold-pressed to obtain the strongest scent. Our oils are bottled in little amber-colored ¼ dram glass bottles. A small pipette is provided with the bottles for adding 1 or 2 drops of oil to mixed paints or inks. There are approximately 36 – 38 drops of oil in each little bottle. A Sampler Set of all 8 scents is packaged in 5/16 dram vials.

SAFETY Concentrated essential oils will irritate eyes or mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children and pets. If pregnant or lactating, consult your healthcare practitioner before handling volatile oils. These oils are not for food or on skin, since we have no control over how they were processed.

 

 

 ESSENTIAL OIL:

LEMON EUCALYPTUS

(Corymbia Citriodora)

Lemon eucalyptus oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the tall, white-trunk lemon-scented gum eucalyptus tree, also known as Eucalyptus citriodora, derived from the Latin citriodorus meaning “lemon-scented.” Steam-distilled leaves release strong clean lemon-citronella fragrance with a sweet balsamic undertone, not as medicinal as other eucalyptus leaves.

Lemon eucalyptus trees are in demand for structural timber and  because bees like the blooms for honey production. It is popular in horticulture both in and outside of Australia.

Eucalyptus oil an active ingredient in many insect repellents and has even been converted into a gas to light Australian outback homes, hotels and shops.
