Botanical Name: Eucalyptus dives
Eucalyptus dives is also called peppermint eucalyptus, for its fresh, minty, penetrating and uplifting scent. Many people find the aroma soft and inviting. Eucalyptus dives can be used like other eucalyptus oils. Instead of containing high percentages of “1,8-cineole” (prominent in other eucalyptus oils), Eucalyptus dives is rich in “a-phellandrene,” giving it an extra affinity for muscles and the throat.
Eucalyptus dives essential oil is ideal for inhalation, topical blends, and cleaning.

If applying an essential oil topically (on your skin), perform a small patch test first.
