Lemon Catnip essential oil distilled from the citriodora variety of Nepeta cataria has a very pleasant herbaceous lemony aroma.  Flowers of this variety are always white rather than blue and sometimes with faint blue speckles.

Aromatherapy benefits of Lemon Catnip essential oil include helping relieve muscular and intestinal cramps, promote sweating thus is beneficial in detoxifying formulas and body wraps, and is considered a calming oil for situations of stress, tension, insomnia and anxiety.

Aside from aroma-therapeutic qualities the aromatic similarity to Melissa (Lemon Balm) caught our olfactory attention.  With Melissa being difficult to source on a consistent basis coupled with its cost we find this Lemon Catnip with its delightful lemony herbaceous aroma to be quite interesting for use in natural perfume, in a wide range of bath and body formulations, as well as soap and candle scenting.  

Lemon Catnip does not contain a high amount of nepetalactone; see our premium Catnip essential oil from Canada for high nepetalactone content above 80%.  Nepetalactone is the chemical constituent that provides insect repelling benefits so for this purpose you will want our conventional Catnip essential oil.  We find this lemony type of Catnip has a marvelous aroma well suited for use in perfumery and bath and body products.
