With over 700 species of eucalyptus, as well as chemotypes, common names, and different parts of the plant being marketed, it's no wonder that people are confused by essential oil of eucalyptus. Most companies are labeling all the oil under the genus of Eucalyptus, which is confusing and misleading. Always purchase and use essential oils by their common name and genus species, understanding that country of origin affects the chemical composition of an oil. A Blue Mallee grown in Australia differs from a Blue Mallee grown in France. And of course, make sure that your oils are therapeutic grade. Therapeutically, different species and chemotypes have different purposes. Eucalyptus polybractea, commonly known as Blue Mallee Oil, comes from a dwarf, densely rooted tree native to Australia. It is grown in the low rainfall areas of New South Wales and Victoria, Australia, and it contains one of the highest percentages of 1,8 cineol, 85-95%. Unlike perfumery, we are interested in the species that supports healthy respiratory system function and muscle fatigue.

Our Blue Mallee is one of the strongest eucalyptus oils and has a fresh, cooling effect. It is commonly used in pharmaceutical preparations. Eucalyptus polybractea makes an effective expectorant and is exceptionally well suited for topical application or diffusing. 

For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used Eucalyptus leaves for their antiseptic and healing actions. They boiled or smoked the leaves on fires and wrapped the leaves around wounds and cuts. Oil vapors were inhaled for treatment of colds and flus. In the mid-1800s, groves of Eucalyptus trees were planted in swampy areas of North Africa to halt the spread of malaria. The trees required large amounts of water to thrive, lowering the water table and thus eliminating breeding conditions for malaria-carrying mosquitoes, as well as repelling these insects with the aroma given off by the leaves. French surgeon Jean Valnet, MD, reported that 70% of airborne staph bacteria were killed when a 2% emulsion of eucalyptus oil was used as a spray.
