About: The fresh, lemony aroma of Eucalyptus citriodora is invigorating and helps support a clear mind and a healthy respiratory system. This essential oil is the world’s best natural bug repellent; keep a bottle on hand for parks, camping and travel to help prevent bug bites. The oil may also be helpful in calming inflammation, disinfecting, and promoting healthy circulation.

Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus radiata have powerful minty aromas used for congestion and supporting immunity. All Eucalyptus varieties may support respiratory health, ease pain and disinfect.
