Eucalyptus Globulus Labill
100% Therapeutic Grade
In Ancient Times/Ancient Story: Eucalyptus oil was first distilled in Australia by John White and Dennis Cossiden in the year 1788 after it was noted that the area of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales would become enveloped in a blue aromatic haze exuded from the resin of the eucalyptus gum.
Due to its resilient and fast-growing nature, the Eucalyptus tree has gained international attention for being able to drain malarial swamp waters, in hot, humid countries converting it instead to usable land. By the 1860’s, Eucalyptus trees were growing in marshlands along the banks of many Mediterranean countries to help in the eradication of mosquito habitats. This was due to the tree’s deep, extensive root system and its outstanding ability to absorb water and purify the environment around it. As a result, this magnificent tree is attributed to have virtually eradicated malaria, which had plagued those regions of the world for thousands of years.
Ancient Usage: The leaves and oil of the Eucalyptus tree were used as an insect repellent during the Roman times and it is documented that they would scatter Eucalyptus leaves in and around their homes for this very reason. The scent being particularly repugnant to roaches. Eucalyptus oil was also used to sanitize urinary catheters in British hospitals in the 19th century.
The Aboriginal Indians in Australia chewed on its roots to stay hydrated while traveling through the country’s outback and crushed and applied the leaves as a poultice to skin blisters of the feet.
Ancient Beliefs:. Eucalyptus oil was sometimes brewed as an infusion, believed to treat fever, and alleviate the discomforts associated with what was then known as Intermittent Fever, later known as Malaria.
