Aromatic │ Topical (!) │Children (!)
Eucalyptus polybractea is an essential oil native to Australia, especially New South Wales (NSW) and called Blue Mallee or Blue-Leaved Mallee. Eucalpytus Blue Mallee is a top note essential oil, having a fresh, penetrating, strong, and cooling camphoraceous scent with faint peppermint undertones. Having the highest cineol and eucalyptol among the Eucalyptus, Blue Mallee continues to be a highly sought after essential oil. Commonly used for diffusing into the air, as an outdoor spray, made into a chest rub for respiratory complaints, and used for joint and muscle pain, foot and skin preparations, and for oily scalp.
This product is available in a 15 mL amber glass Euro bottle.

Cineole is the main constituent of this oil. It is analgesic, antibacterial, antidiabetic, antifungal, antineuralgic, antirheumatic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral (strong), decongestant, deodorant, depurative, diuretic, expectorant, febrifuge, and stimulant.
HOW TO USE:
Aromatic – Add 3-4 drops of oil to distilled water and diffuse; inhale directly by cupping your hands around an open bottle and breath in deeply through your nose.
Topical (!) – Directly apply 1-3 drops of oil to the area of concern or to reflex points (dilute using a carrier oil). Eucalyptus oil should not be applied to the skin in its full strength. Diluted eucalyptus essential oil can be applied directly to the skin for pain and swelling of respiratory tract mucous membranes (rub on chest), joint pain and nasal stuffiness. Eucalyptus is used as an insect repellent - some research shows that applying a specific spray containing a combination of eucalyptus and lemon extract to the skin lowers the number of tick bites by about 30% in people living in tick-infested areas. Avoid using large amounts of this oil. We recommend patch testing a small area of skin with a 5%-10% dilution before use for those with sensitive skin.
Internal (!) – Do not take this product internally
Oral (!) – Do not use this product orally
Children (!) – Likely safe for children over the age of 10 with proper dilution. Do not administer to infants or children under the age of 10 without the professional consultation of a trusted healthcare practitioner. See notes below for more information on use with children and consider purchasing our Eucalyptus radiata which is the best option for eucalyptus and children.
For people with sensitive skin, Wellness Warrior suggests diluting essential oils with a vegetable-based carrier oil, such as raw coconut or jojoba oil.
Do not use this oil near or around the face. Avoid use in children under 10 years old and the elderly. Do not use if you have epilepsy, are pregnant and/or nursing.
Skin reactions: Eucalyptus oil is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when applied directly to the skin without first being diluted.
