Eucalyptus oil is extracted from the leaves and twings of the eucalyptus plant through the steam distillation method. The botanical name of eucalyptus oil is eucalyptus globulus. Eucalyptus oil is a tall evergreen that can grow up to 90 meters long. It is strong natural antiseptic. It has an overall cooling effect on the body.

I bought this oil as it is considered to be a stronger mosquito repellent than even neem oil without any side effects of chemicals. this seems to be effective and u can put a few drops of it in a cup of water and keep it on your side table.there is no need to use a oil diffuser as this oil is quite volatile at room temperature.it is also a natural decongestant and can be used in common cold and stuffy nose as a room diffuser
