Where does Eucalyptus Come From?

Eucalyptus Trees are grown all over the world for essential oil.Pin
Eucalyptus Trees

Eucalyptus is native to Australia, but is cutivated today in many parts of the world. There are over 700 varieties of eucalyptus trees. They have been grown on plantations in many other countries because they are fast growing and have valuable timber, or can be used for pulpwood, for honey production or essential oils. In some countries, however, they have been removed because they are highly flammable.

Eucalyptus can vary in size from shrubs to tall trees. The essential oil is derived from the leaves of the trees. As discussed above eucalyptus essential oil has many benefits but too much can be toxic. The koala bear, however is resistant to this and actually relies on the eucalyptus tree for its primary source of food and habitat.🐨 They munch on these leaves for their entire lives – talk about dedication to skincare! 😉
