Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil is layered with refreshing properties. It has a minty, vibrant and refreshing aroma that is a common ingredient in cold care products, chest salves and inhalants. It is cooling, invigorating and soothing.
Distilled from the leaves of the tree, Eucalyptus essential oil has a fresh, penetrating aroma and is a common ingredient in salves and chest rubs. Purifying, invigorating and cooling, it has been found in these and other such products for over 100 years.
There are more than 700 different species of Eucalyptus trees and over 500 produce a specific type of essential oil. The tall evergreen trees produce bluish oval leaves and the bark is often covered in a soft white powder.
The essential oil is extracted from the leaves through steam distillation. EG's Eucalyptus-Globulus is derived from the “Blue Gum” Eucalyptus native to Australia and is especially pure, potent and alive.
