Eucalyptus oil, also known as ‘Nilgiri tel‘ is obtained from the dried leaves of the eucalyptus tree. These sweet-scented leaves are steam-distilled to make the oil. And the result is natural product for the skin. This oil is a colourless liquid with a strong woody and sweet scent and is extensively used in aroma therapy.
Australian aboriginals use oil-containing eucalyptus leaf infusions as a traditional medication for body pains, fever, sinus congestions, and colds.
