Eucalyptus Citriodora Oil

Eucalyptus citriodora (Lemon-Scented Eucalyptus) oil has antiseptic and deodorant properties, and can kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. It has proved beneficial in cases of mosquito bites, skin irritation, athlete’s foot and herpes (cold sores), and relieves muscle tension, stress, asthma, laryngitis, colds and ‘flu’ and sore throats. While eucalyptus oil may cause irritation to very sensitive skin, it is very unlikely to cause any problems when blended in small amounts with soothing oils such as camellia and jojoba.
