Eucalyptus trees have been long revered for their medicinal qualities. They are also called Blue Gums and consist of over 700 species, many of which are native to Australia.
Two extracts are got from eucalyptus trees: an essential oil and hydrosol. Both have therapeutic effects and healing properties. Eucalyptus hydrosol is what we shall be exploring on this page! It is obtained from steam distillation of the fresh leaves of the tall evergreen eucalyptus trees.
Eucalyptus hydrosol has a menthol-cool fresh scent that’s great for unclogging blocked noses and breathing problems. It’s also good for freshening up rooms, clothes and skin. Find out more eucalyptus hydrosol benefits below!
Hydrosol waters can be used in lotions, creams, bath preparations or straight on the skin. They provide mild tonic and skin cleansing properties and are generally safe for all skin types. We manufacture our waters with their therapeutic value to the skin and body in mind, we do not market our waters as a scent additive - though of course all waters will have a unique scent .... some will be significantly lighter in scent than others will - this is because of the plant material they are steamed from. If you are looking for a scent additive for your formulation that is water based, I would suggest checking out our Essential Water categories instead of hydrosol waters if you are looking for a spot on scent that matches essential oil. Essential waters are designed to add a scent "throw" into your formulations, whereas hydrosol waters are designed more for their benefits to the skin
