History – Eucalyptus Australiana

Traditional Usage

Indigenous Australians used to place leaves in small pools of water, which were heated by placing heated rocks into the water, this produced steam, the leaves oils vapours would be breathed in for various colds, coughs and flu.

Early European Usage

The first Eucalyptus oil was 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. Australia is the sole source country for Essentially Australia essential oil.

Present Day Usage

This oil seems to have not been as well popularised or marketed as other types of Eucalyptus oils, yet it may well be the best Eucalyptus, owing to its fresh, fruity aroma, yet still qualifying as an effective, legitimate Eucalyptus oil.

There are a couple of chemical varieties of Eucalyptus radiata, one of which is fresh, rich in cineole and of fine medicinal quality, this variety is called Eucalyptus Australiana and the one Essentially Australia uses entirely. Another variety of Eucalyptus radiata known as var. ‘B’, known as E phellandra produces a less aromatic oil, we do not market this oil variety.
