Eucalyptus oil comes from trees, usually from Australia but Young Living also growing Eucalyptus in Ecuador. Young Living carries three types of Eucalyptus oil: Eucalyptus Blue, Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus radiata.
The scent of Eucalyptus is familiar to anyone that has consumed cough drops. Most Eucalyptus species support healthy respiratory system. You can inhale the eucalyptus oil and apply it to the chest. You will likely want to dilute with a carrier oil. Sometimes I layer the oils, putting a couple drops of the oil on location, then layer the carrier oil over it as a dilution method. This is useful when using oils that “heat up” a bit in sensitive skin areas on the body.
You can also put some boiling water in a bowl, then add a couple drops Eucalyptus oil to the water. Put a towel over your head to create a tent, then lower your head over the water and inhale the vapors.
Following is a little information on Young Living Eucalyptus oils and what they can do.
Eucalyptus Blue: This oil has a fresh, invigorating aroma that supports normal breathing and soothes tense muscles when applied topically. This essential oil is grown and harvested at the Young Living Farm in Ecuador and is an important ingredient in the Breathe Again Roll On.
Some of the Eucalyptus Blue features include:
High levels of the powerful constituent eucalyptol 56.2% (also known as 1.8-cineol) and eugenol.
High in limonene 6% – normally no limonene in eucalyptus
Eucalyptus Blue is a key ingredient in the new Breathe Again Roll-On
Supports respiratory function when diffused.
Eucalyptus Blue also helps soothe muscle tension when applied topically, and relaxes the body after exercise.
How to use: Topical: Dilute one drop with one drop of V-6 or olive oil. Then apply to desired area as needed. Aromatic: Diffuse up to 30 minutes three times daily.
Rosemary and eucalyptus oils can be used in a saline solution for a very effective nasal irrigation.
10 drops rosemary
6 drops Eucalyptus Blue
8 tbs very fine salt.
The essential oils are mixed thoroughly in the fine salt and kept in a container. For each nasal irrigation session, use
1 teaspoon of this salt mixture dissolved into 1 1/2 cups distilled water. This oils/salt/water solution is then placed in the tank of an oral irrigator to irrigate the nasal cavities, which is done while bending over a sink.

Eucalyptus radiata: Is cooling, refreshing, and energizing. Lighter in smell than Eucalyptus globulus, it has many of the same supportive properties. Because it is relatively gentle and nonirritating, it is the preferred choice for children. This variety is one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils and is suitable for topical use, diffusing,
and even direct inhalation. It has long been an ingredient in some of Young Living’s most popular blends.
A few examples:
