The Power of Eucalyptus Perfume Oil
For a long time now, eucalyptus oil has been popular in its undiluted form when it comes to therapeutic and medicinal products and it’s this odd set of uses that gives it an unusual quality when it comes to wearing it as a perfume!
Eucalyptus itself is an essential oil – meaning it’s been distilled from an organic source. In this case, it’s the steam distilled leaves of the eucalyptus herb tree, which tends to be blended with other fragrances like jojoba when being turned into a perfume.
Of course, it is possible to get it in an undiluted form, but it still needs to have a certain amount of water added to it before it can be used on the skin. Essential oils, also known as natural perfumes, are usually classified in relation to where the actual oils come from.
Eucalyptus oils, along with Abies Balsamea (Balsam Fir) Needle Oil, Citrus Reticulata (Mandarin Orange) Oil, and many others, are classed as leaf oils. These shouldn’t be confused with fragrance oils, which are synthetically created fragrances that are designed to both mimic a scent and last a lot longer when sprayed on.
Eucalyptus perfume oil has a clear, sharp, fresh, woody, earthy and distinctively medicinal smell, which can make it smell a bit too ‘clinical’ for some people who are after a good clean and fresh perfume to wear.
This is one of the reasons why people will tend to go for perfumes that have eucalyptus oils, but are also blended with another fragrance like chamomile, lavender, lemon, or jojoba.
One example of a eucalyptus based blended perfume that’s currently on the market is a light, long-lasting cologne that uses eucalyptus oil, lime, Italian lemon, and petitgrain and is layered with a botanical moisturizer to refresh the skin.
Eucalyptus naturally has a strong aroma when it’s in an undiluted form, which tends to make it long lasting, so you’ll want to make sure it’s a fragrance that you actually like because the scent will be with you for awhile.
Many of the properties that make eucalyptus oil such an in demand product when it comes to its medicinal and therapeutic uses also have a benefit to the wearer when they use a eucalyptus based perfume. Perfumes have different effects on people. In the case of eucalyptus perfume oils, they can have a relaxing effect on a person’s mood.
If you’re after a perfume that will last you throughout the day, have a soothing effect on your mood, and have a nice crisp, sharp, and refreshing aroma, then you should be looking for an unblended eucalyptus perfume oil. But if that’s a little too strong for you in the beginning, you could always start out with one of the many perfumes that have eucalyptus blended with other fragrances.
