Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus Oils

Of the many different types of eucalyptus oils, the two that are recommended for steam rooms are radiata and globulus. While they have many of the same supportive properties, radiata is less irritating on the skin and can be used on children. Globolus can cause possible skin irritation, but it is the only variety that can be taken internally for dietary use. We recommend combining essential oils with a quality carrier oil before applying directly to skin.

Radiata

  • Cooling, refreshing and energizing
  • Lighter in smell
  • Gentle and nonirritating, preferred choice for children
  • Suitable for topical use, diffusing, and direct inhalation
  • Not for internal use

Globulus

  • Fresh, penetrating scent
  • A key ingredient in many mouth rinses
  • Often used to support respiratory system
  • Soothes muscles after exercise
  • Dietary or topical use
  • Possible skin sensitivity
  • Avoid use on children
  • Pregnant Women should consult a physician
