There are multiple types of eucalyptus on the market. Most consumers are most familiar with eucalyptus globulus, which has a harsher scent and can cause reactions in children. We carry a eucalyptus radiata, which has been found to be more effective for many applications, and is safe for use on children. Our eucalyptus oil is steam-distilled from wood and leaves grown in Australia.
Eucalyptus is great for use on damaged skin. Our variety has a high concentration of eucalyptol, which is a common ingredient in muscle and breathing rubs. Diffuse, mix into a blend, or apply in 2-5% dilution.
Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil has a crisp, clean, camphoraceous aroma with back notes of citrus/floral.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil has long been used in homes in Australia. In Spain, the timber of Eucalyptus was used in construction. The Chinese use Eucalyptus trees to make paper.
Eucalyptus Oil should be used in dilution, and be avoided during pregnancy. It is considered toxic if taken internally, non-irritant and non-sensitive. Avoid if you have high blood pressure or epilepsy.
