About Eucalyptus radiata Essential Oil

Our therapeutic quality Eucalyptus radiata Essential Oil is cultivated in Australia, where it is steam-distilled from the fresh leaves of the Narrow-Leaved Peppermint tree. Despite the common name of this tree, it is not related to true peppermint (Mintha piperita). This evergreen tree generally reaches 120 feet in height, with gray bark that naturally peels into long strips and creamy-yellow flowers that appear in the heat of the Australian summer.

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.

Eucalyptus radiata was the first type of Eucalyptus to be used for the production of essential oil. The Essential Oil of Eucalyptus radiata is colorless to pale yellow with a sharp, fresh, slightly floral aroma that is “softer” than that of the globulus species.

Some batches of Eucalyptus radiata  essential oil will contain less 1.8 cineole than some batches of Eucalyptus globulus and for this reason. Eucalyptus radiata essential oil has sometimes been described as “gentler” and safer for children than Eucalyptus globulus essential oil. In reality, the cineole content of the radiata species is still quite high and in some samples may approach those of some samples of Eucalyptus globulus, so there is little reliable difference in the safety of the two species. Tisserand and Young, in their book  Essential Oil Safety, 2nd Edition, classify Eucalyptus radiata as a cineole-rich species and give the same safety recommendations for it as they give for Eucalyptus globulus, including a warning against applying it near the face of any child under the age of  ten years.

Both E. radiata and E. globulus have been described by aromatherapists as being helpful for a variety of respiratory conditions and according to Shirley and Len Price (Aromatherapy for Health Professionals, Third Edition), Eucalyptus radiata Essential Oil offers quick penetration and long lasting actions.

How to Use Eucalyptus radiata with Adults

The uses of this essential oil in aromatherapy are generally similar to the uses of Eucalyptus globulus.

Like Eucalyptus globulus Essential Oil, the essential oil of the radiata species is a good choice for traditional steam inhalations. Steam inhalations are most effective when only one drop of essential oil is added to a bowl of steaming water and then the steam is inhaled; repeating this several times has been shown to be preferable to inhaling a greater number of drops one time.

A up tp 4 drops of this essential oil can also be added to the pad of a fan diffuser. We don’t recommend diffusing large amounts. For topical application, you can add up to 4 drops of Eucalyptus radiata  Essential Oil to two teaspoons of vegetable oil and rub onto the chest area or onto painful joints or sore muscles.  To use in a warm bath, dilute up tp 4 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 radiata Essential Oil may have a strong drying effect and this can be aggravating in conditions where the respiratory tissues already feel dry. 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 choice for those with dry skin or for peri- and post-menopausal women or other women experiencing vaginal dryness.

The use of essential oils with children under 16 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).


Diluted properly, Eucalyptus radiata essential oil is generally non-toxic and non-irritant in small amounts. It should only be used externally; do not take internally. This essential oil is not appropriate for use with or around babies or young children. Avoid using Eucalyptus radiata Essential Oil on or around the face of children under 10 years of age.  This essential oil is best avoided in cases of asthma, except under the guidance of a qualified health care professional. Use this essential oil in small amounts.

This essential oil should not be used on or near the faces of babies or children under 10 years of age.
