Eucalyptus leaf is harvested from an evergreen tree in the myrtle family. Native to Australia and Tasmania, the species is also known as Australian fever tree and Tasmanian blue gum tree.

The leaf and bark of the tree have a long history of use by the Aborigine people of Australia, who also use the wood to make a tall wind instrument called a didgeridoo. Processed in water and applied to silk or other protein-based fibers, eucalyptus leaf produces a dye that ranges in color from various shades of brown to orange and red.


Background: Eucalyptus has been used by the Aborigine people of Australia. Eucalyptus is also known for it's warming effect. That's what makes it so nice when you rub eucalyptus oil all over your chest it provides soothing comfort.

Description: The eucalyptus plant is native to Australia. It is an evergreen tree that can grow very tall - as high as 300 feet. It has green leaves. The leaves can be harvested year round. The tree requires large amounts of water to grow and can deprive surrounding plants of the necessary nutrients.

Safety: Eucalyptus essential oil should not be taken internally unless it is under the supervision of a health professional. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of Eucalyptus or any herb.
