Not just the fluffy koalas' favourite
Eucalyptus globulus is a member of the myrtle family and is a 30-35 meter tall, very fast growing evergreen tree that features silver-grey, warty bark and a twisted trunk. The leaves are oval-heart-shaped in young trees, later they become leathery-hard and assume the shape of a sickle. The eucalyptus tree is native to the subtropical rainforest of southern Australia and Tasmania. Over 600 Eucalyptus species exist in Australia and many of these are important sources of timber, but some are also ornamental trees. The eucalyptus owes its name to the Greek "eu" (beautiful, good) and "kalyptos" (hidden), which means the flower buds, which are covered or hidden by a firm lid before they burst open. The steam distillation of the leaves and branches gives us the highly effective and extremely versatile eucalyptus oil.
mode of action
Eucalyptus globulus is one of the strongest antiseptic essential oils and has a strong anti-inflammatory effect, stimulates blood circulation and relieves pain in muscle pain and rheumatism. We are also enthusiastic about its antipyretic, skin, athlete's foot and nail fungus-killing properties. Eucalyptus globulus is just as effective against lice and, according to the latest studies, can even prevent tumor growth. In any case, we benefit from its extremely versatile abilities, because it supports our breathing, promotes the oxygen supply to all our cells and loosens stubborn mucus, even with COPD and chronic bronchitis, which the high proportion of 1.8-cineol (over 70% included) is due. Eucalyptus essential oil promotes dopamine production, which can bring us back our mental balance. Our eucalyptus also supports the ability to concentrate and logical thinking and releases new strength in the event of mental fatigue. It centers us and encourages new ideas and creative ideas. Eucalyptus essential oil can invigorate, refresh and cheer us up. In addition, it is a good companion for us both when living through stressful times and to strengthen our resilience and willpower. Eucalyptus serves as a powerful atmosphere and room air purifier.

Please never use essential oils pure, but only mix a few drops of them into a fatty oil so that the recommended number of drops is not exceeded. Other possible uses of an essential oil are, of course, fragrance lamps, nebulizers, diffusers or simply a handkerchief as a carrier material for room scenting, so that the oil can be absorbed through your respiratory tract. Essential oils are the potent essence of a plant, so always be aware of their potency. Essential oils are not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
