Aroma:  Fresh, penetrating, woody, camphoraceous

Country of Origin:  Australia

Species:  Eucalyptus radiata

Traditional Use:  Eucalyptus is one of the oldest native medicines used in Australia. It is known now for its use in inhalants and vapor rubs, and as a household disinfectant and cleaner.  Although it shares a common cineole aroma with other eucalyptus oils, analytically it is unique. The primary difference is the presence of the constituent, piperitone, also a component of peppermint. 

Safety Information: Eucalyptus Oil is very toxic when taken orally (no essential oil should be taken internally without the guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner). [Julia Lawless, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils (Rockport, MA: Element Books, 1995), 141.]
