Our Eucalyptus – Smithii is derived from the plants leaves and is organically grown in South Africa and/or Swaziland. It has a bitter-sweet and fruity aroma but is softer and more pleasant than other Eucalyptus oil versions. It is derived from the leaves and is also sometimes known as the narrow-leaved peppermint. The leaves are dried, crushed and distilled to release the oil. This plant is now mindfully cultivated because the tree’s existence is threatened so it needs to be preserved.
