Botanical Name: Eucalyptus Globulus
Country of Origin: Australia
Extraction Method: Steam distillation from the leaves and stems
Scent Profile: A whiff of Eucalyptus is literally a breath of fresh air - green and minty, with a clean sweetness that shines through to buffer its sharp notes. Eucalyptus is noticeably camphorous especially when sniffed at close range, which sends a pleasant, cooling sensation spreading throughout the respiratory tract. It is classified as a top-middle note.
Commonly used in ointment, massage oils and rubs targeted at muscle, ligament and tendon-related aches such as rheumatism and sprains, Eucalyptus is especially popular among sportspeople and the elderly. Its camphorous qualities are also harnessed to decongest and soothe the discomfort of respiratory conditions such as asthma, sore throat and sinusitis.
