Eucalyptus Essential Oil, or Eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, extracted by steam distillation of the leaves and branches
The eucalyptus is an evergreen tree that can reach up to 100 meters in height, making it one of the tallest trees in the world. It is native to Australia and Tasmania but today it can be found on all continents. Currently, China is the largest producer of Essential Oil, although there are other countries such as Australia and Spain that also produce good quality Essential Oil.
Eucalyptus was first used medicinally by Aboriginal Australians who used it to treat infections and fevers. The French naturalist De Labillardiere called it "the fever tree" and used it to treat fevers caused by malaria.

Eucalyptus is widely known for its properties on the respiratory system. In the past, steam vapors with eucalyptus or its essential oil were used in cases of colds or flu. The body was also rubbed with ointments based on vegetable oils and Essential Oils. An example could be: a tablespoon (9ml) of Sesame Oil with 2 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil, 1 drop of Tea Tree Essential Oil and 1 drop of Thyme Essential Oil.
Diffuser: We recommend the use of diffusers without heat, such as the ALQVIMIA Flask, since heat modifies the properties of essential oils. Use a maximum of 10 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in the diffuser.
Bath: dilute a maximum of 10-15 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in a small amount of milk (vegetable or animal), yogurt, honey, salt or Bath Gel. This is because essential oils are not soluble in water and need a vehicle to dissolve in the bath.
Steam Inhalation: apply a maximum of 5 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in a saucepan of hot water with approximately 1-2 liters of water, and perform inhalations covering the head and the saucepan with a towel, to keep the steam for longer.
Sauna: dilute a maximum of 2 drops of the Essential Oil Preparation for every 500ml used in the sauna.
Air freshener spray: we recommend the use of Alqvimia Anti-Stress Eau de Cologne.
