History of Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus is a naturally occurring resource within the Australian environment. The component provides 100’s of health benefits, but is renowned for its antibacterial properties and pleasant scent. The Australia’s Eucalyptus Oil production began in the mid 1800’s. Near the central goldfields of Bendigo, Victoria. Stretching from Raywood and Neilborough and Huntly North to Kamarooka and Bagshot in the locality known as the “Whipstick Scrub”. By 1913 eighteen distilleries produced the finest of oil from the eucalyptus polybractea tree, or the “blue mallee gum”.
Now only 5% comes from Australia. China produces about 75% of the world trade, unfortunately most of this is derived from the cineole fractions of camphor laurel and other additives rather than being true eucalyptus oil, it can be described as “fake eucalyptus oil”.
It should be noted that Australian Blue Mallee Gum has the highest cineole content, ranging from 80 to 95%. The British Pharmacopoeia states that the oil must have a minimum cineole content of 70% if it is pharmaceutical grade.
