The eucalyptus tree has a distinctive scent associated with the Australian outback. We know it’s the koala’s favourite food, but there’s so much more to the humble Australian plant. Our Australian essential oils range, including eucalyptus oil (eucalyptus radiata), are all harvested and distilled here in Australia.
Essential oil is extracted from the leaves and twigs of the eucalyptus tree through steam distillation. The oil should be a thin, colourless or slightly yellow liquid, with a woody scent profile.
Eucalyptus essential oil is an antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral essential oil. Its chemical components also support the body’s immune system and facilitate deep breathing of the respiratory system. Eucalyptus oil is also known for its cleansing and purifying uses on skin and within the environment. Furthermore, eucalyptus oil has an uplifting effect on the mind and helps to combat mental fatigue and exhaustion.
Want to strengthen and balance its properties? Eucalyptus oil blends well with cedarwood, geranium, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, rosemary, tea tree and more. Get creative and craft a blend that responds to your needs!
