Lemon tea tree essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of Leptospermum petersonii, a member of the myrtle family. While the name may sound like a blend, this stimulating oil is a single species in the same family as tea tree oil. It has an energetic lemon aroma with notes of green herbs. This oil is popular in homemade cleaning recipes as well as in diffusers for its fresh and uplifting scent.


1/2 oz., 1 oz., and 2 oz. essential oils are packaged in amber glass bottles with drop reducers for easy application. Larger sizes are packaged in amber screw cap bottles and do not come with reducers or droppers.

Blends Well With

Basil, eucalyptus, geranium, grapefruit, lemon, litsea cubeba, peppermint, rosemary, sage, tangerine, tea tree, thyme


Oil Specific: May cause skin sensitization, potential drug interaction. General: As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
