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.  

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 and is known as "The King of Eucalyptus.” It blends well with other camphorous oils and lemony scents.
