Historical Data: Eucalyptus blue is grown and distilled on Young Living’s farm in Eucador. It is called blue gum, a tree that has been crossbred over 250 years in the wilds of the Andean Mountains in Ecuador and is a cross between Ecalyptus citriodora and Eucalyptus globulus. The native people of Eucador have used the disinfecting leaves to cover wounds and repel insects.
Although it contains 56 percent of eucalyptol, because of its balanced chemical constituents within the eucalyptus, it is the only eucalyptus that has been found in the world today that does not cause an allergic reaction in people who have allergies to eucalyptol. Eucalyptus Blue is preferred over many of the eucalyptus species because of its well-balanced chemistry and its non-allergen effect for all types of respiratory conditions. A great companion to dorado azul.
