Lemon Tea Tree which is native to Australia, is a flowering shrub with slender foliage. Exuding cleansing properties like it’s relative, the tea tree, it has a potent citrus fragrance that is uplifting. The source of oil for lemon tree comes from its leaves and twigs.

Today it proves useful for its cleansing qualities through topical application and the citrus scent, likened to citronella, with its ability to ward off pesky bugs.
