Many species of Eucalyptus grow well here in the city of trees and I connect with as many of them as I can when I go for my daily walks. I’m intrigued by a tree that grows in such a complicated way yet offers a humble, versatile, utilitarian essential oil – much needed in the covid era I might add. Eucalyptus, left to grow without restriction, becomes a massively thick base with bark that easily mimics an elephant’s body. The tree twists onto itself in a confused, contorted fashion. It tricks resin hunters like me into thinking it offers soft, wet resin but the resin is glass – like and hard but beautiful nonetheless. When I thought of the best and most useful eucalyptus to list for both aromatherapy and natural perfumery use, the contorted, elephant skinned Peppermint Eucalyptus came to mind. It is a crisp, clean scent that offers a mint dialogue to a blend, hand made lotion or beard wax without making mint be the entire conversation. E. Dives can be used as any other eucalyptus is used in a blend but it really shines in muscle rubs or vaporized for respiratory support. In a botanical perfume blend, Peppermint Eucalyptus adds a nice crisp, herbaceous freshness middle note, particularly citrus.

Suggested uses: blend with a good carrier oil to use on temples for headaches. Can also be applied to chest for respiratory support. Blends well with Tea Tree, Lavender – particularly American grown, Ginger (my personal favorite), Fir, Cypress and Bergamot essential oils.
