Side effects

*In oil forms the absolute max of 10-15 drops spread throughout the day, about 1ml.

Eucalyptus oil can be toxic in high doses and should be used with caution. It can also interfere with medications. Oils should be mixed with a carrier oil for both internal and external use, a maximum of 5-20 drops per 10ml depending on tolerance and quality of the oil.

The oil is toxic in large quantities, but interestingly enough the lovable koala bear has adapted to be immune to the Eucalyptus primary toxin.

Habitat

Eucalyptus is particularly prominent in Australia. A tree that thrives in wildfires with fire-resistant seeds that can regrow after intense flames, heat, and drought. Australian forests are approximately 75% eucalyptus. Also grown commercially in the Mediterranean and subtropical regions.

Grown in marshland to absorb water and to reduce mosquito and malaria in plagued regions.

Fast-growing, used for timber, pulpwood, honey production, and essential oils. Highly flammable Eucalyptus oil found in the leaf is a fire risk in some countries.

Appearance

Eucalyptus varies from a shrub below 1 meter to a lanky tree up to 10-60 meters. Eucalyptus bark adds a layer every year but separates into 2 distinct varieties, smooth bark and dead bark. Smooth bark shed bark yearly in clumps leaving a smooth finish as new bark regrows. Dead bard keeps its dead bark and allows it to disintegrate as time goes by. Many species are also a mix of the two, shedding half the back and retaining the other half. The bark also has the ability to photosynthesize allowing energy production in situations where leaves have been damaged or removed. Stringybark, ironbark, tessellated bark, box bark, ribbon bark have all been categorized as eucalyptus barks. Eucalyptus leaves are generally waxy and glossy. Evergreen too (they keep their leaves permanently) although some species in the tropics shed their leaves at the end of the dry seasons. Leaves are covered in oil glands that produce oils well known for their medicinal effects.
