Le mot des fondateurs sur l'huile essentielle de citriodora

Proposals collected on a Sunday after noon


Hello hello, welcome to the wonderful world of lemon eucalyptus essential oil. Déjà, let me clarify which eucalyptus we are talking about, because it is a question that we always have tôt or late. Eucalyptus, whether in nature and then in essential oils: we find many. The best known are undoubtedly eucalyptus globulus, eucalyptus radiata and therefore lemon eucalyptus. They all belong to the same family of plants, but have different uses, characteristics and results. The eucalyptus globulus will for example be more efficient against colds and respiratory infections, the lemon eucalyptus will be used for many other things. Its effect on the joints for example. Against arthritis and capricious joints, massages with calophylla oil and citriodora he relieves pain.

It also has plenty of uses on muscle preparation: it is a very good essential oil to prepare for exercise, or in muscle recovery, so much so that it is often referred to - as for katrafay he - as the essential oil of the hiker or sportsman. Be careful with the conditions of use, however, because it remains an essential oil: powerful and very concentrated. For pregnant or breastfeeding women, no way for example to use it, except in diffusion.


It also helps repel mosquitoes during the summer, or all year round in the DOM TOM. It blends very well with safflower oil for massages, with jojoba oil to make a nice anti-mosquito or with calophyllum oil for muscle repair or massages against arthritis.


As for the smell, we are often asked how ça smells and what ça reminds. So one word comes spontaneously to mind when you smell the bottle: it's lemongrass. It really reminds - the - lemongrass, it's quite impressive. A kind of lemongrass with a fresh smell. In a lot of customers, a lot of them love it and a lot of them test this kind of smell: it's pretty cleaver.


The nôtre comes from Madagascar in the south central part of the country, on the highlands but also further down, it can happen. It is a small bottle to always have at home, because you will certainly have noticed it : it is versatile !

The essential oil of lemon eucalyptus, rich in citronellol is very effective in fighting mosquitoes. For this, you just need to apply a few drops of the essential oil in a large dab of vegetable oil (safflower or jojoba for example) on the areas of the body exposed to mosquitoes.


Are we talking about citriodora or lemon eucalyptus essential oil?

The two terms are used here in a similar way to refer to the same essential oil! The term citriodora refers to the botanical name of the tree (Eucalyptus citriodora) while lemon eucalyptus is the name commonly used to refer to the tree.

Are there any contraindications to the use of the essential oil (pregnancy, b&e)?

We advise pregnant women under three months as well as children under 3 years to use citriodora essential oil.

Can it be used as an inhalant?

Yes, in fact, its smell is even a very good asset! At Mira we are very proud of it because it is one of the first Malagasy essential oils to have joined the range. By putting a couple of drops on a handkerchief or in a diffuser, you can enjoy its powerful, energizing scent, reminiscent of lemongrass and tea tree.

Maybe you'll be able to use it in your own home.

What does it smell like?

It smells quite strong and reminiscent of lemongrass. It's fruity notes, yet very energetic. Imagine lemongrass with a tiny hint of fresh, menthol. It's quite complicated? Sure, but yet, by asking each member of our team to describe the fragrance, we get there :)

Is the scent close to that of eucalyptus?

Not really. When you mention eucalyptus, everyone has in mind the minty, fresh notes that "clog the nose". The he of citriodora, or lemon eucalyptus, is very different. If it is different in terms of the therapeutic purpose sought, the smell is also very different and more reminiscent of lemongrass, hence the name citriodora.


What to do with it if you have a cough or cold.


In case of cough or cold, we advise you more to look at côt; essential oils of eucalyptus radi; but not citriodora he. It will be able to help you relieve the inflammation that may be present in your throat, but the eucalyptus radiant oil will be more effective in fighting the cold itself.

L'odeur est vraiment très puissante, ce qui ne plait peut être pas à tout le monde je ne sais pas, mais pour ma part, ça me rappelle la citronnelle et je dis oui. Après 3 semaines d'utilisation, j'ai l'impression d'avoir moins de courbatures et je ne m'en plains pas !

Question: Plutôt le katrafay ou celle-ci pour les articulations ?
Mira, Modified on 31/05/2018

Bonjour, les deux sont très bonnes pour apaiser les articulations, traditionnellement nous avons tendance à vous conseiller l'huile essentielle de Katrafay ("La Grande Evasion") mais la "Muscle Friction" est utile et possède beaucoup de propriétés !
