Lemon eucalyptus is beneficial for addressing shingles, urinary ailments, and arthritis. Lemon eucalyptus oil’s bacteriostatic properties, due to the natural synergism between its citronellal and citronellol content, are active against S. aureus, the bacterium responsible for many skin infections, including MRSA.
A recent study showed that a mixture of 32% emon eucalyptus oil provided more than 95% protection against mosquitoes for three hours. NMSU researchers found that a product containing oil of lemon eucalyptus was about as effective and as long lasting as products containing DEET.
