May Oil of the Month – Eucalyptus Dives

 

“Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,

Merry, merry king of the bush is he,

Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, kookaburra,

Gay your life must be!”

-Marion Sinclair

Maybe you sang this song as child, like I did,  but may not have been aware of which tree the words were referring to. This song refers to the great Eucalyptus tree-of which there are over 700 species, originating in Australia. Plant Therapy recently visited Australia and was able to see these wonderful trees up close-complete with Koalas!

 

 

There is a mountain range in Australia called “The Blue Mountains”. These mountains are covered with Eucalyptus trees and this is what one author had to share;

“The blue is not only the effect of distance but is also caused by the mountains’ characteristic blue haze. Their Eucalypt-dominated vegetation disperses fine drops of volatile oil into the atmosphere. The oil drops increase the risk of fire, perfume the air and scatter, with great visual effect, the blue light rays of the spectrum.”  (1)

Plant Therapy currently carriers two of the Eucalyptus varieties, Globulus and Radiata. For the month of May we are excited to feature Eucalyptus Dives as our Oil Of The Month. Many of you will be excited to know that you can have your Eucalyptus and use it on your kids too! Yes, this Eucalyptus is KidSafe.

I leaned about this at an essential oil conference I attended. An Australian oil expert took pity on me and my congestion at the time. I had experienced bronchitis a few weeks prior and although I was over the worst of it, I still had some residual effects. He took me aside, and said, “try this!” He then put several drops of Eucalyptus Dives on a tissue and told me to breathe it for a while. I did take a whiff of the tissue every few minutes for about 20 minutes, and then realized my lungs had relaxed and I quieted way down.  I was very excited to hear that we would be carrying this essential oil.

There are other qualities to love about Eucalyptus Dives as well. This refreshing, uplifting oil would be great in a sports blend to help with muscle or joint discomfort or  in a foot bath for those tired feet at the end of a day.  It would also be good diffused for seasonal threats and in a blend for cleaning.

 

Here is a recipe for you to try using Eucalyptus Dives:

Sports Master Blend (for sore muscles)

Blend together and use in a 3% dilution in your favorite Plant Therapy Carrier Oil for localized treatment or add 5-8 drops of blend to a diffuser or personal inhaler.

Although many of us would love to go see the gum trees for ourselves in Australia, most of us will have to be content to enjoy Plant Therapy’s great Australian essential oils such as Eucalyptus Dives, Eucalyptus Globulus, Eucalyptus Radiata, Tea Tree, Australian Sandalwood, Fragonia, Kunzea, Blue Cypress, Balm Mint Bush, Buddha Wood, Boronia, and last , but certainly not least, Rosalina.

I am grateful to Australia for the beautiful and beneficial essential oils that they produce. I am excited to learn about the latest Oil of the Month, Eucalyptus Dives, and to reap the benefits also. It is a great addition to our collection and to yours.

 

Let us know how you use this essential oil and how it has benefited you!

  1. Thank you for the information. This Eucalyptus sounds great for my family. It has all the benefits of eucalyptus radiata and globulus, plus more! I’ll be ordering this week!

  2. Thank you for the information. I have both E dives and E Globulous. Both of them are useful in so many ways. Will definitely try some of the new ways to use them!

  3. What especially about this eucalyptus makes it kid safe and the other varieties not? Level of 1,8 cineole? I heard Tisserand’s updated info was that all varieties of eucalyptus were safe for kids, when used carefully and appropriately for their ages and specific concerns. I would love to know more about what the differences between varieties are (globulous, radiata, dives), and whether each is better for certain uses than others.

  4. This was my first OOTM item and I use it daily! I use it with a few drops of peppermint, lavender and Lemon Myrtle (Also an OOTM item) on a tissue or napkin when I’m feeling stuffy or have allergies attacking me, it works wonders. I’ve even had a dozen or so co-workers come and ask me to make them an inhaler of this blend because it works so wonderfully!

  5. Great article… I’m new to Essential oils. Still researching and stalking the Plant Therapy blog. Great picture of the koala bear

      1. I got this from my OOTM membership. It is very nice. The fragrance is very soft and delicate. Thanks for the blend recipe. I am going to try it out in my diffuser right now!!
        ♡♡♡OOTM!!!

    1. It’s pronounced just as one would pronounce “dives off of the diving board”.. thanks for reading our article!

    1. Kelly if we get a lot of good feedback and requests for the OOTM then we will add it to the regular inventory. Eucalyptus Dives was very popular so you should see it on our website within 60-90 days.
