Product Overview

Our Blue Gum Eucalyptus essential oil has a powerful, refreshing, cineolic aroma with green, camphoraceous notes. Vigorous and prolific, E. globulus is an important and certainly the most well-known of all the Eucalyptus essential oils distilled from the more than 700 Eucalyptus species growing throughout the world.[1, 2]

For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used the leaves of Eucalyptus for various incense and skincare applications. In the mid-1800s, groves of Eucalyptus trees were planted in one of the most swampy districts of Algiers, North Africa – a brilliant botanical strategy. The trees required large amounts of water to thrive, thus lowering the water table and eliminating breeding habitat for mosquitoes, while the leaves exhaled their potent aroma into the surrounding area.[3]

Energy and fresh air is what Blue Gum Eucalyptus expresses so flamboyantly – its towering height and robust growth in inhospitable terrain provide an abundant source of sturdy renewable lumber as well as a commercially important ingredient. The elevating aroma of Blue Gum Eucalyptus is particularly suited for diffusion into the air, outdoor sprays, joint and muscle massage, chest rubs, foot lotions, and oily scalp and skin preparations. In soap formulations, it is said to enhance the diffusiveness of other aromatics it is paired with.

Please Note: Because of Blue Gum Eucalyptus oil’s high cineole content, Eucalyptus – Narrow Leaf is preferred for children and sensitive individuals. The primary constituent in Eucalyptus Narrow Leaf (E. radiata) is 1,8-cineole, a potent and volatile oxide. The safety issue with E. globulus is due to the other highly volatile constituents that intensify 1,8-cineole, whereas E. radiata has percentages of moderately volatile and extremely gentle constituents that mediate the intensity of 1,8-cineole.
