Take a deep breathe and let yourself be. By adding the Eucalyptus- Globulus Roll-On into your routine, you invite clear and conscious breathing into your life. Eucalyptus- Globulus will easily become a constant in your purse or pocket.
There are more than 700 different species of Eucalyptus on the earth and about 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 a steam distillation method. Edens Garden’s Eucalyptus- Globulus is a “Blue Gum” Eucalyptus and is the type most commonly used by both aromatherapists and the general population. Diluted to 10% in Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Safety: Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult physician. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not use internally unless instructed by a licensed aromatherapist or physician.

- Eucalyptus Globulus roll-on is a very powerful and potent diluted essential oil blend that is most often used for its antiseptic properties - meaning it’s great at fighting against microbial growth. Its strongest affinity is for the respiratory system, which means inhaling the essential oil in this roll-on blend can be highly effective! Roll the blend onto the neck where the lymph nodes are located and massage it gently to support your immune system. Other areas to us the roll is across your forehead, temples, back of the neck to awaken the senses and support clear breathing. Due to its content of 1,8 cineole, avoid using it around infants, with those who suffer from asthma and young children under the age of 10.
- Eucalyptus Globulus, also commonly called Eucalyptus Blue Gum, is a large tree that is most commonly grown and harvested in Australia and Southern Africa. It is produced from eucalyptus leaves using a common essential oil extraction method called steam distillation. The Eucalyptus roll-on is blended with Fractionated Coconut carrier oil and has a strong affinity for supporting healthy airways and clear breathing. It also helps support mental clarity and has been observed to clear a foggy and distracted mind. It is also wonderful for aiding in achy muscles, poor circulation and diarrhea caused by viral infections. It has uplifting and refreshing properties and has been known to help with cognitive disabilities. Some people with skin sensitivity may have adverse reactions to this oil so it's best to do a skin patch test to rule out skin irritation.
- An average of 10% of topically applied essential oils enter the bloodstream. For example, .3% of a 3% dilution of essential oil would be absorbed. When you apply essential oils to the feet, where the skin is 100 to 400 times thicker than other areas of the body, this percentage may be reduced. The feet are also regarded as having the slowest absorption rate, whereas the forehead is considered to have one of the quickest. If you’re looking to apply essential oils so that they effectively enter the bloodstream for mental clarity, it would be preferable to apply your essential oil to your forehead, underarms or lower abdomen rather than your feet.
- Due to its high 1,8-cineole content, the Eucalyptus Globulus roll-on is not recommended to use around dogs. Dogs have heightened sensitivities to smells, and with Eucalyptus being a very potent essential oil, it is best to avoid extensive use. Breathing problems, dizziness, and vomiting may occur if this essential oil is used directly on or around the nose or face of a dog. However, every dog's breed and size is different - each dog may react slightly differently to essential oils, especially when diffused in large open spaces or small, confined spaces. Speak with a veterinarian and professional certified aromatherapist if you have concerns about your specific pet before use.
- Cats are highly sensitive to chemical constituents in essential oils called phenols - this is because their livers actually absorb and metabolize nutrients differently than ours. According to multiple clinical studies conducted by veterinarians, a small number of phenols can be so concentrated that they can prove toxic to cats. Since Eucalyptus contains a large concentration of phenols, it is, unfortunately, unsafe for cats. If you are looking to diffuse cat-safe essential oils we suggest trying Cedarwood-Virginian and Frankincense-Carterii as alternative essential oils. Each of these oils contains calming and antimicrobial properties similar to Eucalyptus Globulus.
