The plant
The eucalyptus tree is an Australian gum tree which grows to a massive height, up to approximately 300 foot tall.
The extraction
Eucalyptus essential oil is distilled from the leaves of the tree using steam to maintain the integrity of the active ingredients.
Affects
Eucalyptus essential oil is a cooling oil, that is renowned for being stimulating, refreshing, clearing, purifying and regulating. It is an ideal oil for vaporisation as it clears the sinuses as well as the mind and boosts concentration.
History
The name originates from Greek meaning ‘well covered’, referring to the structure of the flower’s stamens.
The oil was first introduced to Europe in 1788, more as an ornamental plant, only to later be later realised that the eucalyptus tree produces a natural chemical that kills off other plants and thus deters other species from sharing its habitat.
The plant is colloquially called ‘Kino’ by the Australian Aborigines, who use the leaves to wrap around wounds as they work as a natural antiseptic and healing aid.
