Which Eucalyptus should I choose?
Eucalyptus Globulus is the most commonly used Eucalyptus and has the strongest aroma. Eucalyptus Blue Mallee has a milder aroma and is very good when used in emotional release and energy work. It also seems to penetrate more deeply into the lungs and bronchial tubes. Eucalyptus Peppermint has less eucalyptol but more menthol than the other eucalyptus varieties. This makes it more calming and slightly less caustic on the skin. Eucalyptus Radiata is gentler and softer than globulus and is preferred by many for use in meditation and energy work. Eucalyptus Blue Gum is authentic Eucalyptus Globulus which means that it is the first distillation and has not been rectified. Most Eucalyptus oils are rectified (redistilled and mixed with other distillations) to get a cineole content of 80% or more. The first distillation of an oil is usually more therapeutic, but also more expensive. Eucalyptus Blue Gum has a softer, more complex aroma and is considered to be the most therapeutic of the Eucalyptus oils.
