The History of Eucalyptus

Considered to be a “cure-all” by the ancient Australian aborigines, eucalyptus trees were harvested by tribes throughout the year and processed in a number of different ways to produce oils, salves, pastes, and medications to be prescribed by the local medicine man.

In 1788 Irishman John White, newly appointed Surgeon-General of New South Wales, recorded in his diary the presence of olfactory oil in the eucalyptus. He distilled a quart of oil from the Eucalyptus growing on the shores of Port Jackson, where Sydney now stands. When introduced to Europe, the original oil was called ‘Sydney peppermint’ and quickly became popular.

PRECAUTIONS Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or lactating, consult your healthcare practitioner before using. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test before using.
