Clear, fresh and distinctive, eucalyptus essential oil brings an invigorating touch to our skin and senses. Its warming and penetrating properties have been traditionally used to boost blood circulation, bringing radiance and nutrients to the skins surface; and its sharp scent makes it one of the most recognisable essential oils.

Our oil is steam distilled from the twigs and leaves of the tall evergreen trees. Its scent is uplifting and deeply relaxing, bestowing camphorous top notes and woody undertones to our Organic anti-blemish blend. The aromas aid refreshment and relaxation, especially when used with the heat of steam rooms and saunas. Inhaling its vapour is a gentle way to relieve congestion, clearing the sinuses and blocked tensions to relieve muscular and emotional strain.

Eucalyptus is a healing element in skincare as it contains antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Instantly cooling and clearing for troubled skin, it helps treat acne, psoriasis and eczema wounds. As an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory the oil not only helps to kill bacteria, but also to target blemished areas and provide healing relief to irritated skin.

Eucalyptus supports healthier skin by removing dead skin cells, clearing dirt and dust from pores, and cleansing the skin from any traces of environmental debris. Rich with antioxidants, eucalyptus holds immune-stimulatory, analgesic, and spasmolytic effects. It promotes phagocytic activity (stimulates white blood cells to ingest foreign particles), which helps in improving immunity and is well known for treating the symptoms of many respiratory conditions such as colds, coughs, sinusitis, influenza, bronchitis and more.
