This lemon-fresh love letter from the Australian outback is often used to purify the air and sanctify sacred spaces as well as inspire peace and wellbeing. Milder and sweeter-smelling than traditional eucalyptus, we prefer the lovely lemony aroma of Eucalyptus staigeriana over Eucalyptus citriodora.
The pure plant power makes it a popular choice for cleaning household surfaces and purifying the air through diffusion. Eucalyptus Lemon Ironbark Essential Oil is a nifty natural cleaning agent; it can be used in the kitchen and on bathroom surfaces and neutralize odors from garbage or dirty laundry. It can be used to wash dishes, freshen laundry loads, or mop floors.
This invigorating oil can also be used to clarify emotional congestion, as an uplifting aroma in the sauna or bath, or to calm children that are out of sorts.
"E. staigeriana is the lemon-scented ironbark, a medium-sized eucalypt with highly lemon-scented leaves. It has a pleasant, sweet, fresh, fruity-lemon, verbena like scent..."
~ Jennifer Peace Rhind, Fragrance and Wellbeing

"If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky."
