Lemon eucalyptus essential oil uses
One of the best uses for lemon eucalyptus oil is as a little mood booster. Add a few drops to your diffuser to cleanse your home and lift the energy or use a little in the bath to gently lift your mood when you feel fatigued.
There’s always room for a hint of lemon in a homemade blend, and that’s why this essential oil works well with so many recipes. Lemon eucalyptus essential oil blends well with peppermint, pine, coriander, juniper berry, lavender, clary sage and cedarwood. Eucalyptus oils are perfect for clearing the respiratory system and boosting the mood, so this is a great oil to diffuse if you’re stuck in bed with a cough or cold.
Lemon eucalyptus essential oil benefits
If your skin needs a bit of a boost, try combining a few drops of lemon eucalyptus to your usual facial cleanser to let it work its magic on your complexion. Always dilute with a carrier oil before using to reduce the risk of irritation.
We may love the citrusy scent, but insects do not. That’s why lemon eucalyptus essential oil is often used in homemade bug repellents. Keep a bottle handy for warm summer evenings when you need to keep them at bay.
