Product Description: Eucalyptus (Dives) is an evergreen tree and is one of the most widely cultivated trees native to Australia, China, Brazil and India. This oil is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with an aromatic somewhat camphoraceous odor. The oil is reportedly used for the manufacture of synthetic thymol and menthol. It also has three chemotypes that have different uses: CT cineole, CT piperitone has a minty fragrance and CT phellandrene is traditionally used for insect repellant.
Cautions: Avoid if you have high blood pressure or epilepsy. For external use only, this is considered toxic if taken internally. Dilute before use; may cause skin irritation in some individuals, so a skin test is recommended prior to use. Avoid contact with eyes.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
