Lemon Eucalyptus has been recently popularized by its use in all natural insect and mosquito repellents. This oil is derived from the leaves and twigs of the lemon scented gum eucalyptus plant. Lemon Eucalyptus has a lemony, earthy scent and is also widely used in the perfume industry.
If you are familiar with DEET, you know that you want none of those dangerous chemicals near your skin. That brings this essential oil into the picture. The way this works as a repellent is that it masks the environmental cues in the air that directs mosquitoes to their target. Apply topically.
This oil is best used in a diffuser or topically. This oil should not be taken internally as it is unsafe in ingested and can cause seizures or even death.

Keep all oil bottles tightly closed, cool, and away from direct sunlight.
Do not place essential oils directly in the eyes, ears, or nose.
