    The Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil is so refreshing and reminds me of Australia, a home I left many years ago. Thank you!

  2. Nadine

    This is a fabulous scent. I use it all around the home. I use it as an air freshener on bedding and linen. I add a few drops to my mop bucket and I also dilute it in a spray bottle and use it as a kitchen antibacterial cleaner for my benches, cupboards, fridge etc.
