Lemon Eucalyptus
I tried this essential oil in a batch of cold process soap. It doesn't smell like either lemon or eucalyptus but has a very, very strong flowery scent. Hopefully, as the soap goes through its process over the next several weeks, the scent will become less a bit more subtle.

Mixed feelings
This oil is okay. It behaves well, gives off a distinct and strong scent, and it doesn't fade after curing. I'm just not a huge fan of the scent personally. It smells like bug spray to me, or floor cleaner. Tip: Don't mix both camphorous AND citrus scents with this at the same time because it might make the bug spray-ish smell stronger--it's much better on its own or only mixed with one of the fragrance profiles if you decide you want to subdue that aspect. I did make a straight batch with this, and I gave out some of the bars to friends and family. Some really loved it and thought it smelled similar to lemongrass, and others just liked the novelty of having a soap bar that smells like insect repellent. Most people I've asked like it regardless of what they think it smells like, so I may be in the minority in being on the fence.

Super clean
I have strong happy associations with the smell of Murphy's Oil Soap, so I made CP soap with this. I also tried two other blends - one with sweet basil EO and another with geranium - in soap. The basil blend is very fresh and lively. I liked it so much that I'll try Lemon Eucalyptus with other cooking-herb essential oils.

Smells like ....
This smells just like Murphy's Oil Soap. Hopefully it will be good for the bugs!

Hi Rachel! Our Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil definitely has a camphorous base note with a lemony top reminiscent of citronella. If you're looking for other herbal scents you may like Karma Essential Oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil, or Spearmint Essential Oil.
