Eucalyptus globulus

Eucalyptus globulus

A soothing, refreshing essential oil that promotes respiratory comfort. In winter, when pleasantly combined with citrus essences, it can be gently diffused to purify the atmosphere. Its typical camphor notes make it one of the essential oils to include in your winter kit.

An emblematic tree of hot, marshy areas, also known as the "Tasmanian Blue Gum Tree", it has long been used to make cellulose pulp. Its leaves, with their penetrating scent as soon as they are crumpled, give this essential oil its characteristic eucalyptol notes.

This essential oil mainly contains 1.8 cineole, but also monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, sesquiterpenols and a few traces of ketones. We always ensure that the 1.8 cineole content does not exceed 75%. Powerful, it should always be used with caution, and the external route should be preferred.

External use

  • Soothing, soothes and promotes respiratory comfort.
  • When diffused and combined with other essential oils, it helps to purify rooms, particularly in winter.

Like all essential oils rich in 1.8 cineole (or eucalyptol), it stimulates the mind. It goes without saying that Eucalyptus globulus takes this property to the highest level, making the mind sharper and more lucid. When diffused, it can even be used to accompany meditative states. Be careful to keep the diffusion gentle and discreet, otherwise it will quickly become stifling.
