Eucalyptus radiata grows in an especially large area around the Tumut and Batlow region, on the very footsteps of the Australian Alps. Frosts are common and snow can also occur in the habitat of this variety of Eucalyptus.

Extraction and Farming Method:
Eucalyptus’ Australiana’ essential oil is sourced from both plantations and wild harvests in southern New South Wales. The essential oil of Eucalyptus Australiana is extracted via steam distillation of the leaves and green branchlets. The tree leaves are hand harvested and steam distilled immediately. The tree responds well to pruning and harvesting.
History – Eucalyptus Australiana
Indigenous Australians would place leaves in small pools of water, which were then heated by placing hot/heated rocks into the water. This produced steam and the leaf oils vapours would be breathed in.
Early European Usage
Eucalyptus oil was first distilled around 1788. However the first commercial Eucalyptus oil production began at Dandenong creek. It was established by Joesph Bosisto in 1852, upon the insistence of one of Australia’s greatest botanists, Ferdinand von Mueller. That first commercial species was in fact Eucalyptus radiata. Thankfully, Australia is still a major source of this wonderful, fresh, eucalyptus oil.
Present Day Usage
While not as well popularised or marketed as other types of Eucalyptus oils, it may well be the best Eucalyptus of all. With its fresh and fruity aroma, it still qualifies as an effective, legitimate Eucalyptus oil.
There are a couple of chemical varieties of Eucalyptus radiata. Essentially Australia uses only Eucalyptus Australiana because of it’s fine medicinal qualities, its elegant freshness, and richness in cineole. Another variety of Eucalyptus radiata known as var. ‘B’, known as Eucalyptus phellandra, produces a less aromatic oil, which we do not use.
