Eucalyptus Citriodora Essential Oil – A Powerful Tool for Clean and Healthy Living
Though lemon eucalyptus sounds like a blend of eucalyptus and lemon essential oils, that isn’t the case. Lemon eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora) and eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) are both part of the Myrtle family. In fact, until 1990, both were classified as genus Eucalyptus, reinforcing that the species are related.
Lemon eucalyptus is an herb that is sometimes referred to as citriodora oil. Unlike most herbs we are familiar with, it is a tree, growing up to 60 to 100 feet or taller. This beauty is high in demand for timber, honey production, essential oils, plus the koala bear finds its leaves most delectable. The tree is native to northeastern Australia, where it grows in a temperate and tropical climate. Today, lemon eucalyptus trees are also grown in Brazil and China.
