Eucalyptus Essential Oil


Eucalyptus essential oil is obtained from fresh leaves of the tall, evergreen eucalyptus tree (Eucalyptus globulus). Eucalyptus oil's history of medicinal use dates back to the days of Indigenous Australians and has spread in the past few centuries to other parts of the world including China, India, Europe, and South Africa. The potent medicinal benefits of eucalyptus oil are due to a compound called eucalyptol (also known as 1,8-cineole), which has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Eucalyptus essential oil is commonly used in products to fight foreign pathogens and different forms of infections.

Eucalyptus oil benefits are due to its ability to stimulate immunity, provide antioxidant protection and improve respiratory circulation. Eucalyptol, or 1,8-cineole, which accounts for 70–90 percent of the contents of eucalyptus oil, has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects.
