Australian Blue Gum Eucalyptus Essential oil
Our wild grown Blue Gum Eucalyptus essential oil has refreshing, green, camphoraceous notes; its powerful, penetrating aroma is especially beneficial for the respiratory system and it is particularly suited for diffusion in the air. Vigorous and prolific, E. globulus is the most important and certainly well-known of all the Eucalyptus essential oils distilled from the more than 700 Eucalyptus species growing throughout the world.1,2
For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used the leaves of Eucalyptus for their antiseptic and healing actions.3 In the mid-1800s, groves of Eucalyptus trees were planted in one of the most swampy and unhealthy districts of Algiers, North Africa – a brilliant botanical strategy -– to halt the spread of malaria. The trees required large amounts of water to thrive, thus lowering the water table and eliminating breeding habitat for malaria-carrying mosquitoes as well as repelling these insects with the aroma exhaled from the leaves.4,5
Energy and air is what Blue Gum Eucalyptus expresses so flamboyantly – its towering height and robust growth in inhospitable terrain provide an abundant source of sturdy renewable lumber as well as a commercially important ingredient in both pharmaceutical and home remedies. Due to the ultra-high concentration of essential oils present in the leaves, these trees present a severe fire hazard, turning into explosive aromatic torches. This is tragically beautiful to observe, but serves as a potent reminder of the volatile nature and concentrated power of essential oils.
