Why You’ll Love Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil
More than just a koala’s favorite food, the tall, evergreen Eucalyptus tree is the source of a widely used essential oil that is popularly used for medicinal remedies. A native plant of Australia (just like the tea tree), the highly aromatic oils extracted from this tree have many uses, from respiratory support to improving mental clarity through use in aromatherapy.
Thrive Market’s essential oils are crafted from the highest quality ingredients to produce top of the line oils. Our specially selected botanicals are harvested, sorted, and then gently extracted using either steam distillation or cold expression to reduce deterioration of the aromatic compounds. The result—a premium essential oil with the truest expression of the plant that can be used in a multitude of ways.
Thrive Market prides itself on offering a thoughtfully curated selection of wholesome products, from our top-tier health food items to our bath and beauty goods. Our certified organic, non-GMO essential oils fit right into our mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone.
How it’s made
Thrive Market’s Organic Eucalyptus Oil is created using steam distillation, a process that uses vapor to extract aromatic compounds. Leaves and twigs from the eucalyptus tree are harvested and put into a large vessel that is then filled with steam. The water vapor then carries small amounts of the vaporized compounds into another vessel where it cools, causing the water and essential oils to separate, and allowing them to be collected. This gentle process avoids using high heat, which means that the oils made this way have better-preserved aromas and are of the highest caliber.
A little about eucalyptus
Eucalyptus trees (Eucalyptus globulus), also sometimes called the Gum Tree, are evergreens that grow to about 50 feet in height. It is one of the most widely cultivated trees and is native to Australia, Tasmania, and other nearby islands. The fresh and earthy scent of eucalyptus is easily recognizable, and on warm days, the organic compounds in the leaves vaporize on their own and cloak the eucalyptus forests in a gentle, aromatic mist. Thanks to the expansion of the Southern Pacific Railroad in the mid-1800’s, the eucalyptus tree found its way to California and is now fairly common in parks throughout the state.
Using eucalyptus around the home
Outside of medicinal use, eucalyptus is often used for aromatherapy and as a cleaning and housekeeping agent. While showering, place a few drops in the hands, place over nose, and inhale deeply to invigorate and promote vitality.
- Aromatherapy: Use 5-10 drops of oil per one cup of water either in a spray bottle, or in a diffuser. Eucalyptus is wonderfully refreshing as a solo scent, but you can also experiment with blending this extremely versatile oil.
- Surface cleaner: Mixing vinegar and water with eucalyptus, peppermint, and lemon oils can yield an environmentally friendly, aromatic all-purpose cleaning spray.
- Laundry freshener: Add a few drops of eucalyptus onto a clean rag and use it as your own DIY laundry sheet - just toss it into the dryer and dry as normal!
Caring for your essential oil
Make sure to store your essential oils in a cool, dark place and avoid extreme changes in temperature to ensure the longest life for your collection. Essential oils do not turn rancid like vegetable oil, but they will degrade gradually into a state where the therapeutic properties become diminished. If you have a particularly large bottle of oil, you may want to decant it into smaller bottles to protect one bottle from oxidization for longer periods. You can expect this oil to remain in good condition for four years and even longer when cared for properly!
