When people ask “What is eucalyptus essential oil good for?” the answer usually focuses on the well-being benefits of eucalyptus oil—helping with calming and relaxing breathing. However, the oil has many more benefits.

So, what does eucalyptus oil do? It can:

  • hydrate the scalp
  • clean everything from floors to bathroom grout
  • relieve dry skin


This section on eucalyptus essential oil uses provides numerous tips and techniques on how to use eucalyptus essential oil, including making essential oil blends with eucalyptus. Two highlighted blends include lavender and eucalyptus oil and eucalyptus and peppermint oil.

When creating an essential oil blend, follow these guidelines.

  • Place the oils in a dark bottle (amber-colored is best) to protect them from light. A 10ml bottle should work for most recipes.
  • Label the bottle with the ingredients, date, and intended use.
  • Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator away from light and heat.
  • Replace the cap immediately after use as oxygen can affect an oil’s composition.
  • Shake well before each use to combine oils.

General safety guidelines for essential oils are listed below, followed by specific precautions for eucalyptus.

  • Don’t use undiluted essential oils on your skin. Dilute them with a carrier oil first. ( jojoba oil is an ideal choice.) Perform a patch test to check for allergic reactions.
  • Don’t use an essential oil diffuser for longer than 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Don’t use essential oils near eyes or mucous membranes
  • Store essential oils out of reach from children and pets.
  • Do not ingest essential oils.
  • Wash your hands after using essential oils.


When used properly, eucalyptus essential oil is safe. However, experts don’t recommend using eucalyptus oil on the faces of children younger than 10 years old as it can cause breathing difficulties and affect the central nervous system. Therefore, we don’t recommend eucalyptus oil for babies. Also, inhaling eucalyptus oil side effects might include allergic reactions or the onset of an asthma attack.

The oil should be used sparingly (if at all) with young children and at dilution rates of 0.5% for children younger than 3 years old and 1% for children older than 3 years old. Using the milder eucalyptus radiata essential oil with children is recommended.

    I’m so pleased with this purchase. I dislike the smell of eucalyptus, but it helps so much for my arthritis that I have to use it. This type of eucalyptus has a much milder, more pleasant aroma and still packs a punch. Like the other oils from this supplier, the quality is great and the packaging pretty.
