Eucalyptus Citriodora essential oil (sometimes called Eucalyptus Lemon) has a strong, fresh citronella-like aroma which makes it an excellent air freshener, room spray and insect repellent. Widely regarded as an easy breather for its positive effects on the respiratory system during colds, bronchitis, hay fever, sinusitis and asthma. It is also known to lift depression and clear cluttered thoughts. It is a great alternative to a standard Eucalyptus oil as it is softer and easier to blend.
