Eucalyptus Radiata

AroMeds Eucalyptus radiata is organically grown and the leaves are steam distilled in South Africa. It is in the myrtaceae plant family, and a top-middle note with a camphoraceous, fresh, clearing aroma.


  • Eucalyptus radiata has similar therapeutic qualities as eucalyptus globulus, but is better suited for elderly or those more frail in a 1% dilution (5-6 drops per 1 ounce of carrier), because it is milder, with a less pronounced camphorous aroma
  • Useful for all respiratory conditions as it is rich in the chemical constituent 1,8 cineole. Excellent decongestant for colds, sinusitis and flu, as it stimulates cold receptors in the nares.
  • Has beneficial antiviral and antibacterial action.
  • It is an analgesic, relieving aches, pains, neuralgia, insect bites and headaches
  • Natural insect repellent
