Eucalyptus Essential Oils

Eucalyptus globulous, Eucalyptus radiata,
Eucalyptus smithii, Peppermint Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus dives)
Lemon Eucalyptus Eucalyptus Staigeriana (Lemon Ironbark)



 - Blue Gum Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus globulous Australia, Ethically farmed, leaves Steam Distilled

Eucalyptus is best known for its respiratory effects. It fights viruses and bacteria, while easing congestion. It also eases muscle and joint aches and pains Eucalyptus globulous stimulates circulation, increasing the flow of blood to affected areas. Eucalyptus can be mentally stimulating and may help increase concentration.  

As far as blending goes, Eucalyptus is going to dominate any blend it's used in, so it should be blended with essentials that contribute to the effect you want to achieve. Frankincense compliments its respiratory effects.

Bergamot, blended with Eucalyptus, can reduce the discomfort of cold sores, herpes outbreaks, and shingles. The combination is reputed to be effective against that specific virus. (But look up Ravensara; in my experience and based on the feedback we receive, Ravensara in a base of Calophyllum is THE specific for shingles!)

WARNING: Do not use with infants and small children, it can cause choking.

**For other possible oils to avoid, please see our essential oil contraindications page.

Blends well with: Basil, Cajeput, Cedarwood, all Citrus oils, Cypress, Lavender, Lemon, all Mint oils, Rosemary, Pine


Eucalyptus Globulous

15 ml $7.00




South Africa,organically produced, steam distilled from leaves

Patricia Davis says this is the most useful Eucalyptus because it smells better and is more easily assimilated. It is most useful for sinus conditions because it can be breathed very closely without triggering a cough reflex. Many sources say it is the oil of choice for infections high up in the chest.  Although many experts recommend Eucalyptus Smithii (below) for use with children,  Valerie Worwood includes the Eucalyptus Radiata in her essential oil "cold care" kit for children of all ages.  For the gc/ms analysis, please click here.


Eucalyptus Radiata

15 ml $10.00




Steam Distilled, Australia, wildcrafted, unrectified.

This is the mildest of the Eucalyptus, safer for children and the elderly. It may be used for relatively long periods of time. Some authorities recommend it as a preventative as it effects the entire respiratory system and immune system.

Many authorities recommend using this oil neat, because of its mildness. Eucalyptus smithii makes a good room disinfector in a diffuser, but can trigger a cough reflex if breathed too close.

It is one of the best oils for painful joints and muscles.

Eucalyptus Smithii can be both a stimulant or a sedative. It adapts to our needs, stimulating in the morning and relaxing at night.


Eucalyptus Smithii

15 ml $7.00




Eucalyptus Citriodora, South Africa, Ethically Farmed


Light, Lemony and refreshing this Eucalyptus is a wonderful air freshener, clearing the air and killing germs. It appears to have anti-staph effects.  

It is a strong anti-fungal oil, and we have used it in the diffuser after a flood that soaked the carpeting with groundwater. Eucalyptus citriodora did a superb job of removing the musty smell left after everything was dried out.

It is also often recommended as an insect repellant, but please see our Lemon Teatree  or Skeeter Beater for THAT usage!

Lemon Eucalyptus can be very sedating in small quantities.

 Eucalyptus Dives essential oil

South Africa, ethicaly farmed, grown chemical free but not certified.

Sparkling and bright, smelling like a blend of your favorite Eucalyptus species with just a touch of sweet Peppermint, this new addition to our collection is recommended for pain relief, whether from sinus headaches, any other type of headache, arthritis pain, and respiratory problems.

I have seen this delightful specimen described as "cooling, refreshing, and energizing." It is said by some to have strong anti-asthmatic properties and to be a remedy against infections of the lower respiratory tract...bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma.  Like Frankincense, Euc. Dives causes one to breathe deeply and forces the bronchioles to dilate. By diffusion, it is useful for general colds and chest infections.

SAFETY NOTE:  Julia Lawless recommends it for all respiratory conditions, sore muscles, rheumatism, headaches, and exhaustion...however Dr. Penoel recommends not using it because of the possible neurotoxicity of the piperitone.

I would avoid using when pregnant, or with children. As with all members of the Eucalyptus family, it is highly toxic if taken orally.

Lemon Ironbark Oil

Eucalyptus Staigeriana Ethically farmed, steam distilled from leaves in Australia

This is the sweetest "lemony" oil we have ever experienced!  I thought of Lemon Ade,  Christi thought of Lemon Jelly Beans. As sweet as candy.  (I'm told that at one time in Australia it was used to flavor "lemon cordial," an Australian version of our Lemonade. I can well believe it.

I am told that it has antibacterial properties, although not as powerfully antbacterial as Tea Tree or Lemon Myrtle.  I can see it shining as a sunshiny mood elevator.  We fell in love and had to have some!

Having fallen in love, I had to research it.  Unlike the Eucalyptus oils chosen for their respiratory effects, high in 1.8 cineole,  Lemon Ironbark oil is composed of geranial, methyl geranate, geranyl acetate, limonene, phellandrene, neral, terpinolene and geraniol.  It may be a skin irritant, so I would prefer to use it in the diffuser. If using topically, please use in very low dilution.  

I have seen it recommended as a sedative and a calming stress reliever.

In the winter it would be useful in the diffuser because it is said to be both anti-viral and anti-infectious.  If the more commonly recommended anti-viral and anti-bacterial oils are too medicinal for your taste, add a bit of Lemon Ironbark to your germkilling blend and bring in a touch of aromatic sunshine.

Blends well with:  Cedarwood, Lemon, Lavender, Marjoram, Pine, Rosemary, and Thyme.

WARNING:  Contains Citral, a strong sensitizer.  Avoid use on broken skin.  Avoid use during pregnancy. Maximum dilution for topical use: 0.7%  (4 drops per fluid ounce.)
