INTRODUCTION AND USAGE
Used interchangeably with and containing similar "Eucalyptol (1,8 cineole)" content as single distilled globulus, Eucalyptus radiata has the additional benefits of sweet fruit and floral notes, skin-friendlier chemistry, and more stable shelf life. Like many oxide-rich oils, Eucalyptus radiata is most commonly used for respiratory support issues. Learn more about Eucalyptus radiata on our blog.
For skin application, add just 1 drop to 1 teaspoon unscented lotion or organic carrier oil and gently massage into the skin as needed for respiratory relief or sore muscles. Add a few drops to an ultrasonic diffuser, a steam inhalation or inhaler to prevent illness during the cold and flu season.
Consider pairing with peppermint for a cooling effect or lavender for calming.

Eucalyptus radiata is energizing and mentally stimulating. It allows us to focus and concentrate as well as providing clarity and a new perspective.
For external use only. Do not use essential oils near infants. It is not recommended to use 1,8 cineole rich oils on or around young children. Use extreme caution with asthmatics as the opposite effects may occur. Use oils within peak freshness to avoid skin irritation, sensitization, or potential headaches.
Alternative respiratory health oils for children and elderly include Frankincense, Cedarwood, and Rosalina. Also consider blending Eucalyptus Radiata with skin friendly oils to achieve a lower 1,8 cineole content in your blend.
