Aroma: The aroma of this beautiful oil is fresh, sparkling, and teases the nose with its false hints of citrus due to its citral content. It has a nice body to it but is not so bright that all one notices is the citral aroma. All in all this is a very well balanced and well crafted specimen for any Eucalyptus Ironbark!
Personal notes: Although this oil has the name "eucalyptus" in it, do not let it fool you! This is a beautiful and bright oil that is very emotionally uplifting. When blended with Cypress it is the perfect tension soothing blend after a rough day. In the past, I have stayed away from the Brazillian specimens so I was very pleasantly surprised when I received this one with just how much is sparkles! With the chemistry of limonene and citral, it makes this essential oil stand out among the rest. This is a must have for anyone who likes sparkling, refreshing, and uplifting oils.
