As summer approaches with its opportunities for picnics, camping, gardening and outdoor vacations, you'll want to make sure you have lemon eucalyptus oil on hand. It can be quickly and easily combined with other natural ingredients to enhance your enjoyment of the outdoors. Simply add 1-3 drops of lemon eucalyptus oil per teaspoon of water or carrier oil (like jojoba or almond oil) so you can comfortably apply it to your skin. (If you mix in quantities, you can add a teaspoon of grain alcohol per 1/2 cup to avoid having to store it in the refrigerator.) Aura Cacia's Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil is an indispensable addition to any summer travel kit or backpack. The easily carried 1/2 oz. bottle holds approximately 300 drops of oil.
Lemon Eucalyptus can also be combined with other natural ingredients to create a variety of summer formulations. If you don't like the scent of citronella, you can substitute lemon eucalyptus in recipes, including candles and lamp oils. Below are all-natural formulas featuring lemon eucalyptus for a lotion, a body mist (for easiest overall application) and a patio spray.
Safety Notes: Essential oils are very concentrated and should be handled with care, following all label warnings and cautions. Keep oils out of eyes, ears and mucous membranes. Don't put undiluted oils on skin—those with sensitive skin should test diluted oils by applying small amount to inner arm. Stop using oil immediately if redness, burning, itching or irritation occurs. Keep oils tightly closed and out of the reach of children.
Aura Cacia's essential oils are all 100% pure and natural. They are carefully screened with a battery of tests, including gas chromatography, to ensure the highest quality available.
