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:

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.
