Origin Description: Eucalyptus Globulus is also known as Blue Gum Tree. It’s an evergreen tree commonly found in Australia, which grows from 30m to 55m tall with long narrow dark green leaves and white-yellow flowers. The species name is from the Latin globulus, a little button, referring to the shape of the operculum. In the 1980s, the Eucalyptus species and its hybrids were planted commercially in South Africa for the production of pulp and paper, and various other forest products. Eucalyptus leaves are the favorite food of Koalas, and have been used in traditional medicine by the aboriginal peoples of Australia. Eucalyptus Globulus has an herbaceous scent with soft woody undertones.
