Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Citriodora)

INCI NAME:

Eucalyptus Maculata Citriodora

EXTRACTION  METHOD:

Steam Distillation obtained from leaves and twigs

SUGGESTED USE & BENEFITS:

Although native to Australia, very little of this oil is now sourced in its country of origin.  Most is produced in Brazil, China, India, with smaller quantities from other countries, including South Africa, Madagascar, and Morocco. 

The Aborigines, for thousands of years, have used all species of eucalyptus for their medicinal benefits, including infusions to reduce fever and poultices to ease aches and aid the healing of skin abrasions and conditions. 

BENEFITS & COMMON USES:

Today the oil’s powerful antiviral and expectorant qualities mean it is widely used for the treatment of colds, sinus congestion, sore throats, and respiratory conditions using a variety of methods including steam inhalation, lozenges, room burners, and baths.  Used in a burner, it is effective for purifying the atmosphere of a room, particularly the air of a sick room.

In 2007, a study at the Phytochemical Pharmacological and Microbiological Laboratory in India showed that Eucalyptus Citronella oil was highly effective against toxic bacterial strains such as Staph aureus and Enterobacter aerogenes.
