Description

Eucalyptus radiata essential oil has a wide range of useful therapeutic properties very similar to those of E. globulus. It has a powerful antibacterial, antifungal and anti-infectious action, which makes it extremely useful for all types of infection. When vaporised, its decongestant action helps to clear sinusitis, a stuffy nose or relieve chestiness, as well as helping to stop coughs and colds spreading. It also makes a highly effective insect repellent.

In my opinion, Eucalyptus radiata is better suited than globulus for chronic respiratory conditions and viral or bacterial infections, especially with young children. However, it is still advisable to exercise care with very young children due to the cineole content of this essential oil. As with E. globulus, avoid application of the oil near an infant’s nostrils due to the risk of spasm of the epiglottis which can be induced by the cooling effect on the respiratory system. To be safe, never use either eucalyptus radiata or globulus essential oils near very young babies.

Used in massage blends this essential oil is very helpful for conditions such as arthritis, rheumatic conditions and everyday aches and pains due to its anti-inflammatory, stimulating and warming action.

Scent: camphoraceous, sweet, woody

Contraindications: Non-irritant, non-toxic, non-sensitizing. This eucalyptus is safe for children and the elderly. It is more mild than the globulus variety. Possible sensitivity in some individuals. Do not take internally. It is toxic if taken this way.
