 Plant Description

Originally from Tasmania, Eucalyptus globulus is a very tall evergreen tree that reaches heights of 100 - 180 feet.  The tallest known living Eucalyptus globulus tree is in Tasmania and is 298 feet tall.  At one time this was a popular boulevard tree in California but has fallen out of favor due to its rapid growth, large size and vigorous spreading nature. Its leathery leaves contain numerous glands which produce the essential oil.


 Ancient Wisdom – Historical Uses

Early on the British colonists recognized the importance of the Eucalyptus tree economically and medically.  In a lecture on The Characters, Properties, and Uses of Eucalyptus Globulus and Other Species of Eucalyptus delivered to the fellows of The Royal Botanic Society of London by desire of the council on March 14th, 1874, it was stated “we cannot but conclude that, allowing for exaggeration, when we regard the beauty of the different species, the proved influence of Eucalyptus globulus, and probably other species, in improving the pestilential character of marshy districts, and the numerous valuable economic and medicinal products derived from them, the genus is one of the most important to man in the vegetable kingdom.”

 

The easily identifiable scent of Eucalyptus is a respiratory stimulant. Strongly antiseptic, it is widely used during cold season. Eucalyptus is used in chest rubs and vaporizers to keep air germ-free in sick rooms.  It is known to deter mosquitoes, cools emotions, aids concentration and relieves headaches and is an effective treatment for fevers.

Interaction

The use of herbs is a time-honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. Herbs, however, can trigger side effects and interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. For these reasons, you should use herbs with care, under the supervision of a health care provider.

 

Aminopyrine

Inhaling eucalyptol, a chemical found in eucalyptus oil, might reduce the level of aminopyrine in the blood. In theory, the effectiveness of aminopryine may be reduced in people who inhale eucalyptol. [i]

 

Amphetamines

Inhaling eucalyptol, a chemical found in eucalyptus oil, might reduce the levels of amphetamines in the blood. In theory, the effectiveness of amphetamines may be reduced in people who inhale eucalyptol. [ii]
