For millennia, eucalyptus leaf has been employed by Australian aborigines for its wellness supporting properties. Native to Australia, Eucalyptus globulus is now an introduced species in several countries worldwide. The evergreen tree has leathery, blue-green leaves that exude a camphor-like aroma. Our eucalyptus powder is ground from the leaves and can be tinctured, infused, or applied topically.
The eucalyptus is an evergreen tree native to Australia but naturalized to California and the Mediterranean countries. Its leathery blue-green leaves are studded with glands containing a fragrant, volatile oil. There are many species of eucalyptus trees, but the most pleasant-smelling oil is produced by Eucalyptus globulus. Typical preparations include facial or hydro-steams, aromatherapy, and teas. Some uses may include encapsulation or extracts, however we have found these to be rare. Eucalyptus oil acts on nerve receptors in the mucosa of the nose and sinuses in a way that causes release of mucus.
Eucalyptus belongs to the Myrtaceae family and also goes by the name ribbon gum and shining gum.
