Eucalyptus features a distinct camphoraceous smell, which some people describe as sharp and slightly medicinal - kind of like rosemary. It's a multifaceted forest scent with hings of mint, honey, and citrus. This potent and uplifting oil is often used in blends to support healthy breathing, and 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 cleaner.
Eucalyptus essential oil blends well with cedarwood, chamomile, cypress, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, juniper, lavender, lemon, marjoram, peppermint, pine, rosemary, and thyme
This oil may be high in 1,8-cineole, which can cause CNS and breathing problems in young children. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally. Keep away from children.
