Eucalyptus oil is a steam distilled from the eucalyptus tree. The oil is taken from the tree’s leaves and extracted for medicinal, pharmaceutical, repellent, flavorings, fragrance, antiseptic and other uses.

Eucalyptus is high in an oxide 1,8-cineol (or eucalyptol). Oxides are basically a compound that has oxygen (technical wording: “a binary compound of an element or a radical with oxygen”). Cineol is the most prevalent of the oxides . This means that eucalyptus is great as an anesthetic (loss of sensation), antiseptic (reduce the possibility of infection), as well as a strong mucolytic (gets rid of mucus). It thins the mucus in the respiratory tract infections - making it a miracle worker for sinus problems!
Eucalyptus is analgesic, antibacterial, anticatarrhal, anti-infectious, anti-inflamatory, antiviral, insecticidal, and expectorant. This means that eucalyptus may help with acne, bronchitis, ear inflammation, flu, hay fever, high blood pressure, nasal problems such as sinus infections, coughs, congestions, vaginitis as well as insect repellent.
