Skin Care

It is the gentlest of all the Eucalypts and can even be used on the elderly and children.

An excellent analgesic so can be used in massage blends and balms for aching muscles and joints.

It is also antifungal so can be included in foot creams.

Eucalyptus Smithii may help to reduce swellings and is antiseptic so is a good choice to use in blemish prone skin products.

Hair Care

Improves the circulation so it would stimulate the hair roots, making it beneficial in shampoos for hair loss.

Gives a fresh zing to morning showers yet also good to use in the evening as well.


It is an adaptive oil that can be stimulating in the morning yet calming at night. Therefore, ideal to use in a room nebuliser or oil burner for extended periods.

May be used on insect bites and also works as an insect repellant.

Eucalyptus Smithii can also be used in the fabric conditioner section of the washing machine to freshen bedding.

Suggested Blends

Combine with Fragonia or Rosemary Verbenone as a soothing addition to sports blends.

Blend with Lavender or Roman Chamomile to help sleep if you have a chesty cough.
