Eucalyptus globulus

Food grade, Steam distilled

Balancing, Cleansing, Stimulating


Fresh, camphor-like scent, Eucalyptus is known for its ability to promote health and general well-being with its soothing and purifying properties.  It is antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral.

Derived from what is now commonly known as the “blue gum” tree, Eucalyptus globulus has been used for centuries by Australian Aborigines to block the spread of disease and to treat wounds using the actual leaves as bandages.  Eucalyptus has also been investigated for its powerful insect repellant effects and its strong benefits to the respiratory system, as well as its ability to kill harmful bacteria and viruses. 

Topically*:  Commonly used to ease the pain and promote healing of minor skin irritations, burns, and insect bites.  Rub into sore muscles to reduce swelling, soothe aches and pains, and increase circulation.  Massage into the temples to relieve sinus pressure and use as a chest rub for an effective expectorant.

Aromatically:  Inhaling Eucalyptus can bring a feeling of balance to the soul, and can promote a general feeling of peace and well-being.  May also open airways and reduce sinus pressure.
