Eucalyptus essential oil has refreshing, green, camphoraceous notes; its powerful, penetrating aroma is especially beneficial for the respiratory system. It is the most important and most well-known of all the eucalyptus essential oils distilled from the many eucalyptus species growing throughout the world. *Please Note: Because of Eucalyptus Globulus oil’s high cineole content, using large amounts should be avoided (can cause respiratory irritation, slurred speech, convulsions, coma) and should be used with care for those with asthma. *it should not be applied on or near the face of infants or children under the age of ten.
For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used Eucalyptus leaves for their antiseptic and healing actions. In the mid-1800s, groves of eucalyptus trees were planted in swampy areas of North Africa to halt the spread of malaria; the trees required large amounts of water to thrive, lowering the water table and thus eliminating breeding conditions for malaria-carrying mosquitoes, as well as repelling these insects with the aroma exhaled from the leaves. French surgeon Jean Valnet, MD, reported that 70% of airborne staph bacteria were killed when a 2% emulsion of eucalyptus oil was used as a spray.
