Cathy’s Comments: Eucalyptus radiata oil is called Black or Narrow Leaved Eucalyptus. Although it shares a common cineole aroma with other eucalyptus oils, analytically it is unique. The primary difference is the presence of the constituent, piperitone, also a component of peppermint, and 3 to 4 percent aldehydes, which lend it a particularly broad spectrum of action (especially anti-viral and anti-inflammatory) compared to the other eucalyptus oils. It’s scent is a bit more mellow, and folks who find the Blue Gum a bit too strong might prefer this one’s aroma.
