Organic Eucalyptus polybractea Essential Oil
Organic Eucalyptus polybractea Essential Oil, aka Eucalyptus Blue Mallee Essential Oil is one of the strongest Eucalyptus selections and has a very high percentage of 1,8 cineole (80% and higher). Herbal preparations of the plant have been used for centuries by the aboriginal peoples of Australia, where it is more commonly known today as “Blue Mallee”. This essential oil has been described by a few aromatherapists as having subtle effects that include the enhancement of psychic abilities but more commonly it’s described as supporting mental clarity and focus. We suggest using it in small amounts and avoiding use before bedtime because we find it to have a somewhat stimulating effect. Avoid using this essential oil on or near the face of anyone under ten years of age.
Eucalyptus Blue Mallee Essential Oil
Native to Australia, the Blue mallee (Eucalyptus polybractea) is a much smaller relative of its eucalyptus cousins. This many-trunked tree has smooth bark and narrow gray-green leaves and it’s from the tree’s fresh leaves that our therapeutic quality Eucalyptus Blue Mallee Essential Oil is obtained via steam distillation.
Eucalyptus Blue Mallee oil is the strongest Eucalyptus essential oil due to the high eucalyptol content. This high eucalyptol makes the oil powerful but also means that it needs additional dilution before use. Blue Mallee Eucalyptus offers extreme antiseptic powers giving it the ability to clear respiratory issues. This type of eucalyptus is preferred in pharmaceutical preparations that are geared toward combating upper respiratory infections, stimulating the immune system, and relieving pain. For this type of application, it is often blended with complementary oils like Lemon, Peppermint, and Rosemary. Given its strength, Eucalyptus polybractea should not be use for children or pregnant or nursing women.
