About Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil: Floracopeia's blue gum Eucalyptus is bright, clean, and warmly uplifting in profile and is a natural support for deep and clear breathing. Eucalyptus globulus is the most commonly used variety of eucalyptus worldwide, and has a pleasant and most recognizable fragrance. This bright, energizing nectar is organically distilled for Floracopeia from South African eucalyptus trees.
Eucalyptus, throughout time immemorial, has an affinity for enhancing the breath, making it suitable for topical application as well as direct inhalation supporting the whole family’s open breathing during challenging winter months. This Eucalyptus is very often used therapeutically because of its high (70% - 85%) eucalyptol content. Its powerful properties make eucalyptus oil a star support for direct inhalation or in diffuser therapy. Whenever those around us seem to be battling congestion, we keep plenty on hand and near our diffusers.
Cleansing and penetrating, eucalyptus oil may be used diffused or in inhalation therapy to support in clearing and energizing tired or overworked bodies. It may also be used topically or in a spritzer as an insect repellent. Eucalyptus is added to many household cleaners for good reason, just add a few drops to what you already have for a fresh clean boost in scent and efficiency!
Eucalyptus has a refreshing and stimulating action on the mind, helping to improve concentration. It is associated with the alleviation of grief and sorrow, as well as opening the heart and intellect while equalizing emotions. Adding eucalyptus to your diffuser blends will add a crispness that can balance too much sweetness from florals or citrus.
