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 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
