Eucalyptus globulus – Eucalyptus Leaves
The Eucalyptus globulus is one of the most extensively planted eucalypts. Its rapid growth and adaptability to a range of conditions is responsible for its popularity. The leaves are steam distilled to extract eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus globulus is the primary source of global eucalyptus oil production. The oil has therapeutic, perfumery, flavoring, antimicrobial and biopesticide properties. Eucalyptus globulus oil has established itself internationally because it is virtually phellandrene free, a necessary characteristic for internal pharmaceutical use.
For thousands of years, and throughout the world, preparations of eucalyptus leaves have been used. Eucalyptus leaves are a common ingredient in herbal cold and flu remedies. Other common eucalyptus leaf uses include massage oils, bath additives, as a tea, and in potpourri.
Eucalyptus leaves are a great source of antioxidants, particularly flavonoids, which protect your body from oxidative stress and free radical damage.
