Eucalyptus Citriodora Features & Benefits

Product Highlights
  • Eucalyptus citriodora is commonly known as lemon-scented eucalyptus.
  • Khush Ingredients sources this essential oil from China, Brazil and Madagascar where our supply partners annually declare compliance to Khush Ingredients’ Sustainability and Ethical policy. 
  • The oil from Madagascar has a slightly lower citronellal content. The oils from China represent a higher perfumery grade again but at a higher cost.
  • Eucalyptus citriodora is a large, attractive evergreen tree, growing to 40 to 60 feet tall with open, drooping foliage. The leaves give a strongly lemon scent when crushed. Eucalyptus comes from the Greek words ‘eu’ (well) and ‘calyptos’ (covered).
  • The trees reach maturity after 3-5 years and are then suitable for oil production. citriodora grows naturally on rolling undulating plateaux, including dry ridges, in open forest and woodland, generally on poor soils.
  • The species can survive a severe dry season. In its natural range, the species is restricted to the central and northern coast of Queensland, Australia but it has been extensively planted in Brazil and India, with significant plantations in China and Africa.
  • The best time for harvesting the leaves for oil production is when the temperature is high, so up to 2% yields can be achieved from June to September dropping to half this during winter months. The most sought after constituent of E.Citriodora is Citronellal.
  • The citronellal content drops during rainy season so the farmers must pick narrow windows of higher heat and low rainfall to harvest to get the best oil output in quality and yield.

Storage & Handling

Shelf Life
3 Years
Storage Information

Whilst we try and deliver Eucalyptus Citriodora oil within 12 months of production, the shelf life is now stated as three years. Storage away from heat, air and moisture prevent the product from degradation. The best options for maximizing shelf life is either to:

  1. Use a nitrogen purge capability
  2. Do not leave a container part full

We suggest a reference sample is taken of the fresh material when first delivered. This should be retained in optimum conditions. The balance of the container can then be compared, at points in the future, to the reference sample for signs of degradation of odor or color change. If there is not significant difference in color and odor then the material is okay to use.  We suggest re-check every 12 months.
