Young Living carries four types of Eucalyptus:

Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus dives are best applied topically or on the reflex points of the feet, while Eucalyptus radiata and Eucalyptus polybractea are more suitable for diffusing, inhalation, rectal, and douche applications. All eucalyptus oils can be used as dietary supplements; however, total daily intake should not exceed 7 drops.

The scent of Eucalyptus is familiar to anyone that has consumed cough drops. Most Eucalyptus species are helpful for the respiratory tract and are useful in loosening and expectorating mucus. You can inhale the eucalyptus oil and apply it to the chest. You will likely want to dilute with a carrier oil. Sometimes I layer the oils, putting a couple drops of the oil on location, then layer the carrier oil over it as a dilution method. This is useful when using oils that heat up a bit in sensitive skin areas on the body.

You can also put some boiling water in a bowl, then add a couple drops Eucalyptus oil to the water. Put a towel over your head to create a tent, then lower your head over the water and inhale the vapors to clear the sinuses.

Eucalyptus globulus

Eucalyptus globules has a fresh, penetrating scent. It contains a high percentage of the constituent eucalyptol, a key ingredient in many mouth rinses. Applied topically, it is often used to support the respiratory system* and to soothe muscles after exercise.

It is expectorant, mucolytic, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral, and antiseptic. It helps reduce infections in the throat and lungs, such as rhinopharyngitis, laryngitis, flu, sinusitis, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, and bronchial pneumonia.

Eucalyptol (1.8 cineol) occurs in high concentrations in Eucalyptus globulus and other eucalyptus species. It is responsible for the oil’s ability to decongest the lungs, clear sinus passages, and contributes to a good deal of its anti-infectious, respiratory supporting effects. This oil is especially useful during the cold and flu season.

Eucalyptus globulus is also very effective as an air purifier. It effectively removes odors and airborne bacteria. According to Dr. Jean Valnet, M.D., an solution of only 2% Eucalyptus globulus can kill 70% of airborne Staphylococcus bacteria.

Dr. Jean Valnet M.D. recommends to use Eucalyptus globulus for: General antiseptic purposes, malaria, typhus, measles, reducing blood sugar, fighting respiratory infections, such as bronchitis, tuberculosis, influenza, pneumonia, and sinusitis, combating asthma, opening the sinus and respiratory tract, removing intestinal parasites and worms, treating wounds and burns.

Eucalyptus Globulus has an approximate ORAC of 24,157 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.

*** NOTE: Young Living is now growing Eucalyptus globulus in Ecuador. They are finding that the oils produced in Ecuador have more constituents in higher percentages than anywhere else in the world. Eucalyptus globulus tests 10 times more powerful than Eucalyptus globulus grown in Australia. Possible reasons for this are the high elevation, and the rich volcanic ash soil that they are grown in. Ecuador has more volcanoes than anywhere else in the world. It is built on volcanic ash, and the soil is beyond compare.

For dietary or topical use. When using as a supplement, dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid such as goat’s or rice milk.

Possible skin sensitivity. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Do not use near fire, flame, heat or sparks. Dilution recommended for both topical and internal use. Dilute before using on sensitive areas such as the face, neck, genital area, etc. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid using on infants and very small children.

Eucalyptus radiata

Is cooling, refreshing, and energizing. Lighter in smell than Eucalyptus globulus, it has many of the same supportive properties. Because it is relatively gentle and nonirritating, it is the preferred choice for children. This variety is one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils and is suitable for topical use, diffusing, and even direct inhalation. It has long been an ingredient in some of Young Living’s most popular blends. A few examples: R.C. (which stands for Respiratory Congestion), Raven, and Thieves. (These oils should be in your arsenal for cold & flu season!)

Eucalyptus radiata is one of the best eucalyptus oils for diffusing. Dr. Penoel recommends Eucalyptus radiata for rhinitis, bronchitis, cough, pulmonary infections, acnes asthma, and vaginitis. The first sign of a cold or flu, a drop of oil should be added to a tablespoon of Honey or Agave and taken every hour for the first five hours and 5 times a day thereafter until symptoms abate. You can also put the drops in an empty 00 capsule.

A drop or two of oil can also be sprinkled on a handkerchief or washcloth and inhaled directly as needed to help with respiratory or sinus conditions. In cases of serious respiratory conditions or yeast infections, you can do an enema or vaginal application, which is recommend by Dr. Penoel. Add 1-2 drops of essential oils to 2-4 tablespoons of grape seed oil or V-6 massage oil.

Eucalyptus dives

This species is high in phellandrene and low in eucalyptol. It is excellent for use in topical application, as it may be less irritating to the skin than other eucalyptus varieties. Avoid prolonged, direct inhalation.

Dr. Penoel recommends Eucalyptus dives for: Sinusitis, ear infection, vaginitis. It is best used in topical applications as it is the strongest
and most caustic. Can be diffused, avoid direct inhalation. Avoid using on infants, young children or pregnant moms.

Eucalyptus polybractea (CT cineol)

This chemotype boasts a cineol content of over 80% the highest of any eucalyptus oil. It is also low in aldehyde, which can irritate mucus membrane. This is one of the strongest eucalyptus oils. This variety is high in eucalyptol (up to 95 percent ) and is well suited for topical application or diffusing.

Dr. Penoel recommends Eucalyptus polybractea CT cineol for: infection of the nasal membranes and chronic bronchitis. It is the least irritating yet one of the most antimicrobial of the Eucalyptus oils. Suitable for most respiratory conditions. Can be diffused, directly applied on the skin. Used in enema or douche application. Can be diluted in honey or Agave for dietary supplement (1-2 drops only/serving)


Eucalyptus Testimonials

Carpal Tunnel
I use a combination of lavenderand eucalyptus globulus from the shoulder down to the fingertips (especially concentrating around the forearm near the elbow). Also, I would find a good therapeutic massage therapist to work on the forearm flexor and extensor muscles. I’ve had good success with my carpal tunnel clients using the combination of oils and massage. — Vanessa

I used the Young Living Eucalyptus Oil for my allergies by inhaling for only three days. The results were remarkable. Not only did It stop my allergy problem, my sense of smell has returned after 32 years. I can walk in the yard now and actually smell the different flowers and plants. I can smell the different crops. It is amazing. — Joe CornerI have had severe sinusitis and allergies for many years. Have never found anything that works as well as Elemi and Eucalyptus. In the winter I put both oils on a cotton pad and insert it into the blower vent of my cold air humidifier. In the summer when we have the air conditioner going I put the cotton pads in all the air vents in the house. Before I got the humidifier I used the same combination of oils in a spray bottle with water to spray the house. Also keep a cotton pad with Elemi and Eucalyptus on it in a small zip lock bag by my chair and next to my bed. Just put the bag over my nose and take a couple of deep breaths. Works great. The zip lock bag will keep the oils fresh for almost a week. I also do the same things with Purification when someone in the family has a cold or flu to keep other members of the family from catching it. — Evelyn
Lost Sense of Smell

I lost my sense of smell 12 years ago after a radical nasal polyp surgery. I have been unable to smell anything since the mid-eighties. I cannot say exactly which oil has helped to bring my sense of smell back but one or all of them did! I haven’t fully regained my ability to smell, but at least I can get a scent of particularly strong oils. Young Living eucalyptus, lavender, and helichrysum would be the oils I suspect were the most helpful. — Nancy Rice
