Lemon Eucalyptus plant has sword-shaped, gray-green leaves and tiny, white flowers. The lemon eucalyptus plant is also known as lemon-scented gum, it has a more pungent smell than other citrusy herbs, like lemon verbena, lemon balm, and lemon thyme.
If you touch its leaves, the air is infused with a super-strong scent of lemon. In fact, if you’ve ever burned a citronella candle, don’t think it is scented with real lemon fragrance, rather, it is made with oil from lemon eucalyptus bush leaves.
We partnered with farmers (in Mukono - Uganda) and invested in learning how to grow and care for these trees, a project that started prior to the pandemic in 2019 with much research in sourcing good seed from Eastern Uganda.
We grew found of the trees, because of how easy it was to care for them, the lovely "memorable" scent and its great uses.
