Corymbia citriodora is a tall tree, growing to 35 metres in height, from temperate and tropical north eastern Australia. It is also known as lemon-scented gum, blue spotted gum, lemon eucalyptus and eucalyptus citriodoralemon-scented-gum.jpg

The essential oil of the lemon-scented gum mainly consists of citronellal. The unrefined oil from the lemon eucalyptus tree is used in perfumery, a refined form of this oil is used in insect repellents.

The leaves are dried and ground into a powder for use in any type of citrus dish.
