Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil


The Blue Gum tree, from which Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil is distilled, ranks among the tallest trees in the world. Also known as the Gum Tree or Stringy Bark, this evergreen giant has been known to reach over 300 feet in height. Originally native to Australia and Tasmania, it is now grown on most continents as a source of essential oil, sturdy lumber, and ornamental beauty.

Your experiences with an essential oil may differ from any one else’s  experiences.  No information provided here is intended to be used for the diagnosis or treatment of any physical or mental illness. Please pay attention to the safety information provided below in order to insure that your experiences with this product are good ones.

This thin, clear to pale yellow essential oil has a distinctive, camphoraceous odor that is sharp and fresh and somewhat medicinal. Aromatically, it may overpower floral aromas but blends well with essential oils such as lemon, thyme, rosemary, lavender, pine and other conifers.

Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil  is said by aromatherapists to help with congestion  colds, and flu. It’s also been used in massage blends due to claims that it can help to ease musculoskeletal pain.

How to Use Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil with Adults

The use of essential oils with children under16 years of age is a specialized topic; please consult an aromatherapy reference book or, better yet, a properly trained professional aromatherapist, before using essential oils with children (see for appropriate training standards for aromatherapists and for help in locating a professional aromatherapist).

In our experience, Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil can have strong effects and because we have found it to provide the best experience when used in small amounts, we recommend using it sparingly. This will avoid waste and you’ll also be less likely to find it excessively drying if used this way (see below).

Eucalyptus globulus Essential oil can be used as a “single” or in blends, but we especially like to use it in blends. For use in steam inhalations or pocket inhalers, we find that it blends well with True Lavender, Thyme linalool, Tea Tree and Lemon essential oils, for example.

As a single or in a blend, this essential oil is a classic choice for traditional steam inhalations. We believe that inhalations are best when only one drop of essential oil ( or one drop of a blend) is added to a bowl of steaming water and then the steam is inhaled; in our opinion, repeating this several times is preferable to inhaling a greater number of drops all at one time.  Another method of use is to add up to 3 drops of this essential oil to the pad of a fan diffuser; that’s really all you need in most cases of everyday use. We don’t recommend diffusing large amounts in nebulizing diffusers in the home or, especially, the office. Alternatively, during the winter cold and flu season, you may enjoy placing a drop or two on the pad of an aroma locket or in a pocket inhaler to take with you when you go out (be sure the locket does not allow the undiluted essential oil to touch your skin.) When using this essential oil in public spaces, you should be aware that not everyone likes the somewhat medicinal aroma.

For topical application, you can add one or two drops of Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil to a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil or jojoba and rub onto the chest area or onto joints or muscles.  To use in a warm bath, dilute up to 3 drops in a tablespoon of vegetable oil, jojoba, or Castile Soap and gently stir into the water. Do not let the oil-infused bath water get in your eyes; if you have used vegetable oil or jojoba be careful – the tub will be slippery.

Be aware that Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil can have a strong drying effect and this can be aggravating in conditions where the respiratory tissues already feel dry, as they may do in some instances of bronchitis, for example. Used in a bath, it can also dry the skin, including the delicate tissues of the genital region and for this reason it may not be the best bath choice for those with dry skin or for peri- and post-menopausal women or other women experiencing  dryness.
