Eucalyptus Globulus is also known as Blue Gum. It’s an evergreen tree commonly found in Australia, which grows from 30 to 55m tall with long narrow bluish-green leaves and white-yellow flowers. Eucalyptus leaves are the favourite food of Koalas, and have been used as traditional medicine by the aboriginal peoples of Australia.
Eucalyptus essential oil is most well known for its wonderful benefits for respiratory applications, including helping to ease congestion and pressure, colds, flu, fever and bronchitis. Diffuse at night, near bedside, for respiratory relief. You can inhale the soothing vapours through the night. As well as clearing up congestion, it is also very effective for treating coughs. As a vasodilator, it helps widen the blood vessels allowing blood to circulate more freely. This has a number of health benefits including the ability to reduce fever. It's also a great essential oil to use in massage or other topical blends to ease muscular pain and arthritis. Eucalyptus is an immune-boosting essential oil, and has the ability to alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety.
Eucalyptus essential oil improves hair health, it stimulates blood circulation to hair follicles, which helps enhance natural hair growth. It also improves shine, thickness, and relieves itchy scalp.

Regular use of Eucalyptus essential oil on the hair can enhance the overall health of your hair.
