Like many other aldehydes rich oils Lemon Myrtle is sedating and anti-inflammatory at low concentrations. As an insect repellent this has excellent results alone or when combined with L.petersonii (Lemon Tea Tree).

Method of Application:
Diffuse or in low concentration in body blends. Also an insecticidal and odor reducing oil. It is great to drive out silverfish, cockroaches, ants and mosquitos from the home.

It is wise to rotate the different 'lemon-scented' oils, so that, the insects do not become resistant to the scents and more importantly, you do not become sensitized.

An added bonus is the great deodorizing properties of these oils, great for smelly shoes, cooking smells and pets.

Normal aldehyde precautions apply when using this oil. May be a skin irritant.
