It's easy to get confused with Eucalyptus oils considering that there are a total of 11 varieties. If you need one to fend off colds and the flu, though, look for Eucalyptus Polybractea - commonly known as Blue Mallee. Why? It has the highest Cineol and Eucalyptol content which makes it the most powerful antiseptic among all the Eucalyptus.
Exuding a fresh and camphoraceous scent, Eucalyptus Blue Mallee has a long list of therapeutic properties. Besides being a strong antiseptic, it is also a natural mucolytic, anti-viral, decongestant, and expectorant. It can help with coughs, sinusitis, asthma, throat infections, fevers, headaches, and laboured breathing due to respiratory issues.
Blue Mallee essential oil also contains anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, analgesic, and antispasmodic properties. Dilute and apply topically to soothe tired muscles, sprains, aches, and pains.
Diffuse to promote mental clarity and improve your focus and concentration. Doing some "spring" cleaning in the wake of Coronavirus lockdowns? This oil is revered for its purifying and disinfecting properties. Use it as a refreshing boost to your surface cleaner!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
