Eucalyptus, radiata essential oil (also known as gray peppermint) is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tree to produce an essential oil that is pale yellow in colour. Its countries of origin are Australia and Tasmania.

Traditional uses include: deodorant, antiseptic and immuno-stimulant. Eucalyptus, radiata essential oil is regarded as the most useful of the eucalypti. It has a more pleasant scent, is more easily assimilated by the body and is less likely to cause irritation on the skin. Its main chemical constituents are eucalyptol (about 70%) with terpineol and some other alcohols and monoterpenes.

This particular eucalyptus essential oil is antibiotic, antiseptic, and anti-viral making it a great oil for viral infections, colds, bronchitis as well as muscular strains and rheumatism. It helps to keep the air germ free when used in a vaporizer. This genus of eucalyptus is great for treating sinus conditions as it can be inhaled most deeply without triggering the cough reflex. It is the essential oil of choice when dealing with infections high in the chest. It is a good immuno-stimulant, great for use by individuals who are run down and prone to colds. It may also be a very powerful bactericide and anti viral. This makes it excellent as an inhalation for colds as it eases nasal congestion while inhibiting the growth of the cold virus. A room spray containing 2% eucalyptus essential oil will kill 70% of airborne staphylococci. Eucalyptus essential oil is also a great natural insect repellent (mosquitoes hate it!) and it may be useful when combined with Bergamot essential oil when treating both herpes simplex and complex (be sure to consult a doctor or physician before use).

Eucalyptus essential oil blends well with Juniper essential oil, Lavender essential oil, Lemon essential oil, Lemongrass essential oil, Pine essential oil and Thyme essential oil.
