Steam distilled from the leaves of a hardy, bushy shrub native to Australia, tea tree lemon essential oil is indispensable in the perfumery, aromatherapy and cosmetic industries and has also become a key ingredient in natural insect repellents. This fresh-scented oil, with its citrus top notes, is also a popular addition to recipes for homemade cleaning products and cosmetics.
A little goes a long way with this powerful, organic oil. Blend it with cinnamon, clove, rosemary and thyme oils to add a spicy edge to its citrus base note. Or really go for a citrusy zing by mixing with lemon, mandarin or orange.
