Eucalyptus, Blue Gum Essential Oil is one of the most widely used Essential Oils; a constituent of cold remedies and inhalants, and strongly antiseptic.
The oil is distilled from the blue-green leaves of the Eucalyptus tree, which grows to a great height in warm regions. A native of Tasmania, its leaves were used by the Aboriginals as a dressing for wounds. It was introduced to Europe in the eighteenth century.
