Eucalyptus smithii is a bright fresh clean smelling essential oil also known as Gully Gum. This smithii species of Eucalyptus is safe for children and the elderly making it the most versatile of all Eucalyptus oils.
If sensitive to stronger smelling Eucalyptus globulus you will love smithii. It has a soft camphoraceous aroma that is well received in spa steam rooms, gyms, body scrubs, soaps, and bath salts. Other therapeutic benefits of Eucalyptus smithii include adding a few drops in a steam shower or bath to clear and revive the respiratory system. To open a stuffy nose or clear sinus headache try placing a few drops inside a hot wash cloth (rung out and folded a couple inches wide) to lay across nose and cheeks. Eucalyptus smithii is also a choice essential oil in massage blends targeting sore muscle and joints.

Product Abstract: Also known as Gully Gum, Eucalyptus Smithii is a medium-sized to tall forest tree with long, narrow, yellowish leaves. Eucalyptus leaves are the favourite food of Koalas, and have been used as traditional medicine by the aboriginal peoples of Australia. Although similar to the other Eucalyptus species, Eucalyptus Smithii is considered to be the mildest of the Eucalyptus oils, and better around sensitive people.
