Major Chemical Constituents:
There are possibly up to six chemotypes of E. radiata. Two of these, a high cineole variety and a variety balanced in piperitone, alpha-phellandrene, cineole and para-cymene are commercially harvested.
Therapeutic Properties of Constituents:
1,8-cineole- antibronchitic, antiseptic, expectorant and respiratory, and anti-inflammatory.
Alpha-pinene- anti-inflammatory, can cause skin irritation to sensitive skin.
Alpha-terpineol - antiseptic, bactericide, expectorant.
Limonene-bactericide, expectorant, fungicide, & sedative.
This oil has an appealing scent when compared to other cineole oils and is preferred by children. This oil exhibits good expectorant properties and is ideal for helping the body clear respiratory catarrh.
The 1.8-cineole content increases the dermal uptake of other constituents in a blend by as much as 95 times, this effect is particularly useful in respiratory and anti-inflammatory treatments.
Nontoxic, nonirritant and non-sensitising. When taken internally eucalyptus radiata (or any of the eucalyptus oils) are toxic.
EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
Do not use undiluted on the skin.
