Types of Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus trees originated in Australia, but now a days they can be found in other parts of the world. There are over 700 different species of eucalyptus.

Here is a quick review of four popular types of eucalyptus oil used in aromatherapy. While their essential oils have similar therapeutic properties, the primary difference between them is their aromas and chemical makeup.

Eucalyptus Radiata

  • Rich in cineoles, it is considered the most versatile of eucalyptus oils
  • This type is derived from the Narrow Leaf Eucalyptus
  • Its crisp, clean, and herbaceous true eucalyptus aroma is soft and sweet, with smooth camphor notes

Eucalyptus Globulus

  • Most common type of the Eucalyptus varieties
  • High cineole content and very herbaceous aroma with soft woody undertones
  • It is derived from the “Blue Gum” Eucalyptus native to Australia
  • It has a deep camphorous menthol aroma

Eucalyptus Dives

  • Also known as "Peppermint Eucalyptus"
  • Steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the Peppermint Gum Tree
  • It has a strong herbaceous yet minty scent that is stimulating and uplifting
  • Read our EO Spotlight on Eucalyptus Dives Oil

Lemon Eucalyptus

  • Eucalyptus citriodara has most of the same therapeutic properties as the other species, but smells sweet and fruity, similar to citronella
  • It is steam distilled from the leaves of Lemon Eucalyptus trees

Safety Tips: Eucalyptus essential oil should not be used internally. Eucalyptus oils rich in cineole are generally not recommend for children under ten years old, these include E. globulus and E. radiata. Lemon Eucalyptus and Eucalyptus Dives are listed as kid friendly for ages 2+.
