Eucalyptus Essential Oil Varieties

Eucalyptus citriodora and radiata are similar in properties. However, they have a varied scent.

  • Eucalyptus citriodora’s aroma is strong, fresh, citronella-like, sweet, and balsamic. The aroma is significantly different from Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus radiata as it has stronger medicinal and lemon-like notes. Eucalyptus citriodora is calming to the nervous and respiratory systems.
  • Eucalyptus radiata’s aroma is similar to Eucalyptus globulus being fresh, clean, medicinal, and slightly woody with additional sweet and fruity notes making the scent a bit softer. Eucalyptus radiata is considered the most therapeutic of the three varieties.

Do not use Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil on children under 10 years old (consider Eucalyptus citriodora or Myrtle as a safer alternative for children 2 years +). Refrain from using while pregnant or breastfeeding. Always apply Eucalyptus with a carrier oil for topical application. Click here for dilution rates.

Great but repellent
I bought this for it's bug repellent properties. My husband was getting eaten alive outside changing the irrigation heads. He put this on and said they didn't bother him for at least 20 minutes, which is when he thinks he sweated most of the oil off. He was very happy with this oil.

I love the scent!
This effectively removed the rank trash smell! This smells very similar to the lemon myrtle. So if you love that one, then you will also love this :)
