Like standard Tea Tree, Lemon-scented Tea Tree oil is known to have powerful anti-microbial properties useful in treating mild topical infections. Its pleasant lemon scent makes it great for many personal care products, such as deodorants. It is also reported to be useful as an insect repellent.
Note: Lemon-scented Tea Tree's high citral content means the oil can be irritating to the skin. However, blending with oils high in monoterpenes may help to combat this effect.
BLENDS WELL WITH
Neroli, Lavender, Rose and Palmarosa.
