Eucalyptus Essential Oil is probably most well known for its wonderful benefits for respiratory applications including helping to ease congestion and pressure, colds, flu, fever and bronchitis. It's also a great essential oil to use in massage or other topical blends to ease muscular pain and arthritis.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil primarily consists of the oxide 1,8 cineole (also known as eucalyptol or just cineole). The cineole content is what is primarily responsible for giving Eucalyptus its aroma and key therapeutic benefits for respiratory health and pain relief. Per the recommendation of Robert Tisserand, avoid using Eucalyptus Essential Oil on or around the face of children under 10 years of age. See the Essential Oil Safety section below for more information. Aromatically, Eucalyptus Essential Oil has a fresh, woody and bright medicinal aroma. The term camphorous is sometimes used to describe the medicinal characteristics of Eucalyptus Essential Oil. However, it's the 1,8 cineole that is responsible for giving the oil its distinctive eucalyptus aroma.
