Botanical Name: Eucalyptus radiata
Country of Origin: Australia
Eucalyptus Australiana Essential Oil has a soft fragrance Eucalyptus therapeutic essential oil.
Although there are several different types of eucalyptus oils available on the market, Australiana, Eucalyptus radiata essential oil is often preferred as a softer aroma to that of Blue Gum -Eucalyptus globulus. Although the difference is quite subtle, the softer fragrance of the radiata variety is more pleasant for the entire family. The vast genus of Eucalyptus includes almost 700 species, and it continues to expand as unknown species are discovered and catalogued.
Due to its lower cineol content, the essential oil from this species of Eucalyptus doesn’t trigger the cough reflex as easily as E. globulus, making it better suited for inhaling – especially with young children. Eucalyptus Radiata Oil has an action that loosens phlegm and unblocks sinuses gently and effectively.
Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil can be used in massage blends for muscular fatigue, stiff joints, general aches and pains, and as a pre or post sports rub. It has a powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-infectious action, which makes it extremely useful for defending against all types of infection.
