Eucalyptus citriodora is a evergreen tree with leaves that have a pleasant citrus scent. Once it was only cultivated in Australia but today, due to growing use in the cosmetic industry, it is also cultivated in Brasil, Cina and India. The Aborigini have used the eucalyptus citriodora leaves to make compresses to ease joint pain and excelerate healing of wounds and infections.
The essential oil is produced by steam distillation. The oil has a lemony citrus note similar to citronella because both are rich in monoterpene aldehide citronelal.
Eucalyptus citriodora essential oil has anti inflammatory properties, is beneficial in cellulite treatment as well as for arthritis, hypertension and sprains.
