Australia is home to more than 700 types of fast-growing, flowering evergreens known as eucalyptus. Part of the myrtle family (Myrtaceae), these plants can grow to be 18 meters tall and 4.5 meters wide. dōTERRA has selected five unique species to create its proprietary Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus radiata, E. polybractea, E. kochii, E. loxophleba, and E. globulus.
Why should I add Eucalyptus oil to my collection? The primary chemical component of all five species is eucalyptol (1,8-cineole) from which the essential oil blend gains many of its rich benefits. These include effective surface and skin cleansing properties, as well as a camphoraceous, herbal aroma that can create a revitalizing atmosphere when diffused. Use both aromatically and topically to enjoy the clear, refreshing aroma of Eucalyptus or include in a soothing massage for a stimulating scent.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
For external use only. Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
