As one of the fastest growing trees in the entire world, the Eucalyptus tree stretches skyward at heights that can reach nearly 500 feet. Australian Aborigines used hundreds of different species of eucalyptus to make herbal preparations, incense, to create shade, and make paper. The leaves are cool Koala bear food.
The Blue Gum Eucalyptus leaves were first distilled into essential oils in the 18th century when doctors discovered its cooling properties. While there are many varieties of eucalyptus, Blue Gum Eucalyptus is considered a eucapharma eucalyptus which is sharper in scent and is a fortifyingly fragrant component of complexion care, chest balms, body washes, lotions, shampoos, and soaps. Its scent of verve-vapors is a calming caress for skin in distress, and blesses the chest with an easing essence.
“Eucalyptus globulus is the most well-known eucalyptus variety. This oil has a unique, fresh scent which is enhanced by the presence of sesquiterpenes and various aldehydes.”
~ Kurt Schnaubelt, Advanced Aromatherapy
“Ancient hearts dance to the beat of eucalyptus. Fully aware of the past, eucalyptus is yet a fragrance of newness, renewal, and the seeking of new horizons.”
~ Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
