Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil
Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil (Eucalyptus globulus) from Australia is distlled from the tree’s fresh leaves.
The Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus) ranks among the tallest trees in the world. Also known as the Gum Tree or Stringy Bark, this evergreen giant has been known to reach over 300 feet in height. Originally native to Australia and Tasmania, it is now grown on most continents as a source of essential oil, sturdy lumber, and ornamental beauty.
This thin, clear to pale yellow essential oil has a distinctive, camphoraceous odor that is sharp and fresh. Aromatically, it may overpower floral aromas but blends well with essential oils such as lemon, thyme, rosemary, lavender, romatherapistspine and other conifers.
Aromatherapists have long used Eucalyptus globulus for people with respiratory issues and muscular pain.
