A classic ingredient for chest rubs and steams, eucalyptus is an evergreen tree native to Australia that has become naturalized in California and the Mediterranean. Its leathery blue-green leaves are studded with glands containing a fragrant, volatile oil that is camphoraceous and cooling. There are many species of eucalyptus trees, but the most pleasant-smelling oil is produced by Eucalyptus globulus. Eucalyptol is the major volatile oil in eucalyptus leaf, and while eucalyptus oil boasts around 70% of this compound, it is also found in other herbs at lower concentrations of 1-5%.
We are excited to introduce organic eucalyptus leaf powder to our offerings. This aromatic powder is milled from carefully dried eucalyptus leaves. The special drying process preserves the potency of the oil content, making both our cut leaf and powdered eucalyptus high-quality ingredients for your needs.
