There are multiple types of eucalyptus on the market. Most consumers are most familiar with Eucalyptus globulus, which has a harsher scent and can cause reactions in children. We carry a Eucalyptus radiata, which has been found to be more effective for many applications and which we believe is safe for use on children. Our eucalyptus oil is steam-distilled from wood and leaves grown in Australia.
