        This is a high potency Eucalyptus Lemon essential oil with citronellal content normally 5% to 8% higher than some others from other countries.

        To improve the mosquito repellent qualities, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus is processed from Eucalyptus Lemon essential oil to convert much of the citronellal into PMD (para methane 3,8 diol). The PMD is a much longer lasting repellant that has been shown to perform better than chemical repellents. PMD is also synthesized however, as is normally the case, synthesized compounds come along with small amounts of harmful compounds that are difficult and expensive to reduce.

        Unprocessed Eucalyptus Lemon essential oil still works well as a mosquito repellent in candles and diffusers. If applying to the skin you can also extend its effectiveness by blending into a slow absorption carrier oil like soybean oil at 5% to 10% which stays on the surface of the skin and also has a mild mosquito repellent quality. Almost all essential oils must be diluted before applying to the skin anyway.

        Eucalyptus Lemon is not similar to Eucalyptus in chemistry or aroma. The aroma is more similar to citronella than Lemon or Eucalyptus.

        Eucalyptus Lemon essential oil has other benefits as well. It can be used as a treatment for asthma, athlete's foot, candida, colds, cuts, infections, insect repellent, sore throat, sores and wounds. The fungicidal and antiviral actions of this oil make help protect against infections.

        Eucalyptus Lemon is generally regarded as safe (GRAS). It contains no known carcinogens and contains compounds known for their anticancer activity.
