The essential oil of lemon eucalyptus is highly accessible. It is not expensive and has no notable contraindications. The only ‘disadvantage’ is that its fragrance strongly resembles that of citronella, a mosquito repellent. However, lemon eucalyptus is superior to citronella in both fragrance and effect. Multiple studies have shown that the insect-repellent properties of lemon eucalyptus are better than those of citronella. Lemon eucalyptus combines well with wintergreen, German chamomile, rosemary and basil. The insect-repellent effect can be enhanced in a synergy with true lavender and geranium.
