Eucalyptus Lemon

Eucalyptus - Lemon - Eucalyptus citriodora

This attractive, tall evergreen tree whose smooth dimpled bark is blotched with gray, cream and pink is cultivated as an ornamental. This tree is native to Australia, yet it is mainly cultivated in Brazil and China. A pale yellow essential oil results from steam distillation of the leaves and twigs; the oil has a strong citronella-like odor with a hint of balsamic.

With its 80-95 percent content of the constituent Citronellal, this oil makes a natural, nontoxic insect repellant. Eucalyptus-Lemon is helpful with fevers, colds, infectious skin conditions, sore throat and fungal infections. This essential oil is also used as a fragrance in soaps, detergents and perfumes.

I personally like its insect repellant properties. Here is a recipe I like to create for humans and animals:

  • In 8 ounces of water add
  • 10 drops of Eucalyptus-lemon
  • 15 drops of Lavender
  • 10 drops of Lemongrass
  • Shake well and spray lightly on the area of concern.

This is general information regarding Eucalyptus – Lemon essential oil. We encourage you to learn more about this oil and plant through research and see how it can benefit your life. You can purchase essential oils through FrogWorks.

When placing an order for individual essential oils, please call or email.

 

Raven

Through my readings and studies with traditional healers, I have learned that ceremony is an important part of their everyday life. Ceremonies are held for health, love, peace, death, birth -- the list is endless. In our busy lives, we often neglect ceremony, but I have found much peace in my own ceremony practice. During my horse Pete’s transition to the next life, we created a ceremony for him. This ceremony was an amazing experience for all involved and for Pete; he was at such serenity in his final moment. After this experience, I decided it would be nice to help others learn how to create a ceremony for their animals in any situation, from the birth of puppies, to an adoption, a rescue or in their passing.

Our cat Raven left us suddenly after only being with us for six years and it was through his ceremony that we were able to find some peace with his loss. I have had some friends lose their beloved animals recently and they were able to use the knowledge from our course “Creating a Ceremony for Animals” to help them with their process.

In this class, you will learn how to use plants and essential oils as a blessing and healing practice for your animals. We will cover the art of ceremony, how to perform plant brushings, create healing herbal baths, and use sacred oils and plants. These techniques can be used with your animals as a blessing, for a celebration, during an illness, in health, and in their passing.

I would like to thank Raven for inspiring me to write about this work. You are loved and missed very much.
