Les bienfaits de l’huile essentielle d’Eucalyptus

The benefits of Eucalyptus essential oil

We all love eucalyptus in a flower bouquet and its aroma reminds us of an afternoon at the spa. Its properties in aromatherapy are recognized throughout the world and are growing in popularity. Discover more about the many virtues of the  eucalyptus plant.


What is eucalyptus? 

Native to Australia, eucalyptus is a tree now present in many parts of the world, especially in Asia and around the Mediterranean. You can even grow it in Canada, if you keep the plant in a sunny area  indoors during the winter.


In aromatherapy, the leaves of the tree are distilled in order to obtain the essential oil, whose name and uses differ according to the type of tree used. Research on eucalyptus essential oil began in the first half of the 20th century and is now considered a must-have for its many health benefits.
