Organic Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of organic Eucalyptus radiata, an aromatic tree that is found in Australia, South Africa and in other temperate climates.
Organic Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil is typically selected for the same room diffusion, chest balm and cleaning types of applications that Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil is traditionally called upon for. However, Organic Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil is lower in the oxide 1,8-Cineole and contains more monoterpenols. Aromatically, Organic Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil tends to be preferred over Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil as it possesses a sweeter, less camphorous aroma.
In holistic aromatherapy applications, Organic Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil is typically considered to be energizing and uplifting. Is can be used in blends to help promote focus and clarity.
The recommended maximum for topical use is 20%. Avoid use on or near the face of children under 10 as advised by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young within Essential Oil Safety (Edition 2).
