Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil, despite it’s name, isn’t a “true tea tree.” It’s a closer relation to Manuka Essential Oil. Both Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil and Manuka Essential Oil have many of the same benefits as Tea Tree. This anti-microbial oil has excellent anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, making it an excellent addition to skin care, first aid, and household cleaning DIY projects, especially when the medicinal scent of tea tree is not wanted.
It’s ability to keep insects at bay make it a great addition to repellent products (especially when used with catnip), dilute appropriately. For a general “keep away” . . . try adding a few drops of this oil to strips and placing around the area. Drops on shoelaces or the bottom of pant legs may deter crawling insects. It may be effective in a blended spray (properly diluted) for certain animals to deter insects like fleas and flies.
Oily skin can get great benefits from Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil. When used in facial steamers or in leave-on products, this oil can help reduce the appearance of blemishes. I like to add it to lavender and helichrysum in these types of products. For an added boost, palmarosa is also great in a blend.
It’s anti-bacterial properties also make it an excellent addition to homemade deodorants, as body odor is usually a direct result of bacteria. Other uses that Lemon Tea Tree’s anti-bacterial properties excel in are ointments and salves for wounds and insect bites. When added to helichrysum and made into an ointment, skin has a chance to heal itself quicker. Personally, I prefer to promote scalp health by putting Lemon Tea Tree in my shampoo vs tea tree. The scent is much nicer!
Diffused, Lemon Tea Tree can help cleanse the air, reduce stress, relieve anxious feelings, and calm before bedtime. Remember, a little goes a long way.
I like to add this oil to my household kitchen and bathroom cleaners as well. Use it in place of tea tree in your recipes for a fresh, lemony clean!

Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil Safety Info
According to Tisserand and Young, Lemon Tea Tree essential oil may cause skin sensitization. Due to this 0.8% dilution is recommended. People taking medication metabolized by CYP2B6 should not use this oil. Topical use can irritate those who have diseased skin, young skin (under two year old), or are hypersensitive. Oral use should be avoided by those on diabetes medication or are pregnant. Lemon Tea Tree essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source: Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such. With all essential oils:
Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
Keep away from children.
If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
