Eucalyptus- radiata Essential Oil

Bottle Size
Add to Wishlist

When learning about the many medicinal and healing properties of essential oils for the first time, Eucalyptus was likely part of the introduction. It is a powerful oil with an abundance of therapeutic properties and is a meaningful addition to any massage oil.


EG carries three Eucalyptus essential oils, the others being Eucalyptus-Globulus and Eucalyptus-Smithii. The primary difference of Radiata and other sub-species of eucalyptus is its especially cool, crisp, penetrating aroma.  It is a common ingredient in chest rubs, natural inhalants and sport crèmes. 


Native to Australia, Eucalyptus makes up more than 90 percent of the nation’s trees. The essential oil is extracted from the tree’s leaves through a steam distillation process. Today, radiata is the most prevalent species of eucalyptus grown in Australia and is known as "The King of Eucalyptus.” It blends well with other Australian oils and lemony scents.
