Eucalyptus globulus, Organic: India (Eucalyptus globulus)
Eucalyptus globulus is an evergreen tree that originated in Australia. The aboriginal tribes traditionally use the leaves to treat respiratory illnesses, wound infections, and as an insect repellent. The leaves are steam distilled to extract the essential oil. In the market most all of the low pressure and temperature extracted oil is altered after distillation by heating up the extracted oil to “burn off” some undesired herby chemical fragrances. The tree has been transported to other regions and environmentalists consider it to be and invasive species due to its ability to spread and crowd out native plants.
