Difference between Lemon Myrtle and..

Recommended Posts

lemon eucalyptus and tea tree lemon? Are these the same oils or are they different? I have been using lemon eucalyptus in a bug spray recipe because I read it is high in citronol. But I just recently read the other two are also great mosquito repellents. So I am a little confused if they are the same, similar, or completely different. Especially as I can't find all 3 at one supplier to read/research about and comparison shop.

I too believe they are different.

i once wanted to get lemon balm 

but didnt know it was called Melissa - then I saw the price and thought WTH ???? Insanely expensive. I've been wanting to try the lemon eucalyptus though

Thanks. I keep forgetting about New Directions Aromatics... I must not have it bookmarked.

 

Moonstar I get my Lemon Eucalyptus from The Chemistry Store. I think I saw the lemon myrtle at Eden Botanicals... but not sure I am remembering correctly.

 

Anyway I am pleased with how well the lemon eucalyptus is working and my EO bug blend smells so fresh and lemony I get compliments on it all the time!

I've been wanting to make a bug 

spray. I want to make an all natural one, which I'm assuming 

most of the small batch made 

ones are. NDA has great prices 

on many items. You can't beat the price on their clays - fruit powders 

seaweed powder & I love their 

lemon & coffee butters !
