What is Eucalyptus Oil exactly?? Extracted from an article in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture: “It is an essential oil derived from the oval-shaped leaves of eucalyptus trees, originally from Australia. Manufacturers extract oil from the leaves by drying, crushing and distilling them. More than a dozen species of eucalyptus trees are used to create essential oils, each of which offers it’s own unique blend of natural compounds and therapeutic benefits.”
In our daily lives, the most commonly used and renowned household item, with Eucalyptus being the main ingredient, is Vicks VapoRub.
