For thousands of years, Australian aborigines used eucalyptus leaf for its healthful properties. Eucalyptus leaves are typically taken as a tea or tincture and can also be used in topical applications.
Eucalyptus is an evergreen tree native to Australia but naturalized to California and the Mediterranean countries. Its leathery blue-green leaves are studded with glands containing a fragrant, volatile oil. There are many species of eucalyptus trees, but the most pleasant-smelling oil is produced by Eucalyptus globulus. Typical preparations include facial or hydro-steams, aromatherapy, and teas. Eucalyptus oil acts on nerve receptors in the mucosa of the nose and sinuses in a way that causes release of mucus.
Eucalyptus belongs to the Myrtaceae family and also goes by the name ribbon gum and shining gum.
