Lemon Ironbark Essential Oil


Lemon ironbark essential oil has an extremely gentle eucalyptus aroma.   It has been used as a culinary flavoring in drinks, sauces, marinades, and breads.

Emotionally, lemon ironbark aids in regaining the will to make changes, and the will to live, especially when one has given up.

It also helps one understand that doing nothing is often the best choice.  It helps one to know when it is appropriate to stop interfering with others by trying to take care of them.  It helps one learn to hold space for others rather than trying to fix them or save them.

It is an excellent oil for applying to the solar plexus and heart centers for this purpose,  or it can be inhaled or worn as a natural perfume.
