Eucalyptus essential oil is most commonly obtained from the Blue Gum Eucalyptus tree, though hundreds of species exist. The broad leaves, which grow in opposite pairs on square stems, yield the essential oil (eucalyptus globulus) which is steam distilled for extraction. The tree is a towering, aromatic evergreen native to Australia where its essential oil has been utilized for centuries in far-ranging traditions.
