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.

Good camphor scent

Rating

I like it better than average, I hope one day to find one that actually smells like the plant though.

Precious

I love E. globulus, the closest you can get to real camphor after it was banned. It's irreplaceable.

Perfect

Rating

This is literally the BEST Eucalyptus I have ever smelled. I actually had a Eucalyptus tree and it smells just like it! I have tried the Malle but the Blue gum smells much better and stronger.

High Quality

Rating

This product, like all the oils I have purchased from Eden Botanicals is so pure and high quality you can smell the difference with one sniff. I have a blend I use for colds and chest congestion, that this is miraculous in. There is not another equivalent to this oil on the market that I have found.

Good Quality Eucalyptus

Rating

I have been an aromatherapist for a long time. I am living in Australia where most Eucalyptus comes from. Eucalyptus is very useful for your general life. I can tell this is good quality Eucalyptus. I have been coughing from my allergy for awhile and this oil helped a lot.
