Due to its pleasant smell and its valuable chemical constituents, our certified organic Narrow Leaf Eucalyptus is a favorite Eucalyptus essential oil. Narrow Leaf Eucalyptus is also known as Grey, Black, or Narrow-Leaved Peppermint Eucalyptus; its aroma is more complex and generally more pleasing than the aroma ofåÊBlue Gum Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus). Although it has strong antiviral properties, it is camphor-free and gentler than Blue Gum Eucalyptus, and is therefore an excellent respiratory remedy, indicated particularly for children and elders.
Among its many properties,åÊEucalyptus radiataåÊis anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and can be used to address acute and chronic respiratory infections, coughs, bronchitis, and even acne.åÊThe oil of this tree has antiviral and powerful expectorant properties,åÊis an effective immuno-stimulant,åÊand is indicated for influenza, chronic fatigue and immune deficiency.åÊIn his bookåÊAdvanced Aromatherapy, Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt callsåÊEucalyptus radiataåÊthe number one, all-purpose Eucalyptus oil, (1998, p. 67).
For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used Eucalyptus leaves for their antiseptic and healing actions.åÊIn the mid-1800s, groves of Eucalyptus trees were planted in swampy areas of North Africa to halt the spread of malaria. åÊThe trees required large amounts of water to thrive, lowering the water table and thus eliminating breeding conditions for malaria-carrying mosquitoes, as well as, repelling these insects with the aroma given off by the leaves.French surgeon Jean Valnet, MD, reported that 70% of airborne staph bacteria were killed when a 2% emulsion of Eucalyptus oil was used as a spray.
