Eucalyptus globulus

Eucalyptus  - Eucalyptus globulus


This evergreen tree belongs to the Myrtaceae family. With an average height of 30 m, it can reach 100 m in Australia. It is called blue gum tree due to the blue liquid which oozes from the trunk when it is cut.


Eucalyptus is recommended in the treatment of respiratory tract disorders such as bronchitis or influenza, for example. Because it is a febrifuge, it has been nicknamed fever tree.


Its leaves and branches, distilled by steam, produce an essential oil which possesses major antiseptic and repairing properties. It also benefits from deodorant activity.
