Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Choose a Variant

Olfactive Description: Aromatic, Camphor, Sweet, Slightly Woody

An aromatic and camphorous essential oil, Eucalyptus is often used to promote relaxation. Eucalyptus wood is used by the paper industry, which discards leaves and twigs. Instead of allowing this material to go to waste, this by-product is gathered and steam distilled into pure essential oil. In blends, this essential oil is often used as a top note.

We recommend Eucalyptus essential oil for use in candles, reed diffusers, wax melts, and tarts. Make your own line of spa-inspired bath and body products like bar soap, liquid soap, lotion, and scrubs.

Candle Maker’s Notes:
We’ve found that Eucalyptus essential oil has a strong hot throw in candles, rating three leaves out of three on our soy performance scale. This essential oil is definitely a top performing essential oil in candle making, making it perfect for those who want to curate a 100% all-natural line.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. We stick blended to a medium trace, and the batter poured smoothly into the mold. After 24 hours, the scent was mild and there was no discoloration. We did not observe any sign of the soap going into a gel phase. After 30 days the scent had faded but was still distinguishable. Compared to our unscented sample, there was a slight yellow discoloration.
