Lemon Scented Tea Tree is popular all over Australia as a garden ornamental small tree, it grows well given the right conditions to around 5 metres. It grows reasonable quickly, with a reasonable yield. As a cosmetic preservative, Lemon Scented Tea Tree has been shown to be effective as a preservative in shampoo at 1% and as an active in natural anti-microbial products or as an active in deodorant products. Lemon scented tea tree is a shrubby plant native to Australia and New Zealand.

The Lemon note has a wide acceptance and It does not have the harsh medicinal note of traditional Tea Tree. The down side is that it is a little harder to cultivate and harvest, with a lower yield than Tea Tree, this is reflected in the price. A 20% solution of Lemon Scented Tea Tree was found to be effective against a particular mosquito. It gave immediate repellency and remained effective for 4 hours for at least 50% of the insects. This is a good result for an essential oil. Contains citral and citronellal.

It can be used with the up-coming cold and flu season in a vaporiser, oil burner or bath. It supports the respiratory system, and strengthens the immune system. Besides exhibiting a revitalising aroma, as it has been said that L. personii is 'nearly more lemony than lemons',  it has been suggested that it helps to minimise minor skin irritations and breakouts.
