Peppermint Gum (eucalyptus dives)
This tall eucalypt from southern New South Wales has a fresh minty aroma. It makes a perfect replacement for peppermint and is much safer for use with children. Unlike most eucalyptus oils, this one is calming and relaxing. It is useful in times of mental fatigue or anxiety. Can also be used for respiratory conditions, or place in a footbath at the end of a long day on your feet. Blend with eucalyptus, tea tree, blue cypress or lemon-scented oils.
