Eucalyptus essential oil is clear in color and is used as a key ingredient in many health care products. Also known as "blue gum", Eucalyptus globulus is one of the most widely cultivated trees in Australia and is also one of its oldest native medicines. It is now grown and cultivated in many other parts of the world due to its high demand from consumers for the health benefits it provides. It has many naturally occurring chemical components, with eucalyptol being the number one. Eucalyptol is known to be virtually phellandrene-free which makes it soluble in water making it ideal for internal medicinal use. It blends well with grapefruit, lavender, lemon, peppermint and rosemary essential oils. Popular usages include vapor rubs, inhalants, household cleaners, perfumes, massage oils, creams, lotions, astringents, mouthwash and insect repellents.

Purity and Grading
All of our essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted oils. We strive to source the highest quality oils from established, reputable suppliers that value purity, sustainability and natural practices. We are often questioned by customers whether our oils are “therapeutic grade”.
The term “therapeutic grade” was created and trademarked by newer essential oil companies to differentiate their products from others on the market. The truth of the matter is that the Food and Drug Administration does not certify the quality of essential oils as “therapeutic grade” nor do they provide a certifying label. GloryBee Essential Oils provide the same quality, purity, and reputability as therapeutic grade oils – often times at a lower prices.
