Eucalyptus Australiana oil is a member of the Myrtaceae family. This oil has a somewhat harsh, medicinal odour with a woody-sweet undertone and is classed as a top-middle note. Eucalyptus blends well with camphoraceous, citrus and woodsy oils.
Eucalyptus is packed full of analgesic, antiseptic, antiviral and decongestant properties. It is highly beneficial to the respiratory and immune system. It is also an excellent insect repellent.
Essential oils can be applied topically once diluted with a carrier oil. They are widely used in cosmetic goods and handmade crafts.
