Eucalyptus Herb - Uses And Side Effects

Herbal eucalyptus products come from the leaves of the eucalyptus globulus labill plant. The herb was first used more than 100 years ago to relieve stuffy nose.

Eucalyptus is a diverse genus of trees (rarely shrubs), the members of which dominate the tree flora of Australia . There are almost 600 species of Eucalyptus , mostly native to Australia, with a very small number found in adjacent parts of New Guinea and Indonesia .

Eucalyptus trees have dotted the Australian landscape for millions of years, and today they are probably the most common trees on the continent. Eucalyptus, able to survive poor soil, dry spells, and fire, is hardy enough to have spread throughout much of the land and take a central place in the lives of the forest's wildlife.

Eucalyptus is available as an oil and a lotion. Some experts recommend the following doses:

  • For various uses, 0.05 to 0.2 milliliters of eucalyptol, 0.05 to 0.2 milliliter of eucalyptus oil, or 2 to 4 grams of fluid extract taken orally.
  • For topical use, mix 30 milliliters of oil with 500 milliliters of water
