The Eucalyptus plant species originate in Australia and some of the islands to its north, like the islands of New Guinea and Hawaii. Throughout all these places there a few hundred different species of eucalyptus.  These vary from the kinds we typically see koalas munching on to the beautiful rainbow eucalyptus trees of the Hawaiian Islands. However, both our eucalyptus Essential Oil and eucalyptus Leaf herb is from the eucalyptus globulus species of the eucalyptus family.

While these Eucalyptus plants may be accustomed to conditions in Australia and the northern islands, there are other areas of the world that have similar enough conditions. So, these trees can thrive in these areas as well. While some of the eucalyptus trees can make do with partial shade, most of these trees require full sunlight. Also, they require well draining or dry soils.

Another important aspect of these trees is that they cannot take cold temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit for extended periods of time. So, most gardeners in colder climates will keep their eucalyptus tree in containers to protect them from winter conditions. While these indoor trees won’t grow to be the typical 30 to 180 feet (which will need to be controlled with pruning), they will be a unique house plant that can provide fresh eucalyptus. Just make sure that your plant has the right conditions and you’re good!

Some people like to use it for natural cold remedies due to its beneficial properties. These wonderful properties include improving many respiratory conditions, as eucalyptus is effective for simulating both your immune system and respiratory circulation. This can even lead to helping a sore throat feel better and release the pressure in your sinuses as all the congestion caused by mucus begins to be broken up.

Although there are some medicinal uses for eucalyptus, like some cold medicines, ingesting large quantities of this herb is not a good idea. In fact, it is not a great idea to eat eucalyptus just for fun. Many people enjoy the antibacterial properties and the boost it can provide your immune system. But, we can’t eat too much eucalyptus. Eucalyptus leaves are covered in an oil that humans can’t digest well. So, humans cannot use it at too high of a dose internally.

However, Koala bears are perfectly adapted to consume these leaves. They are able to survive on only the leaves of eucalyptus and other gum trees. However, even the baby koalas need some help learning to digest these tough leaves. Until they grow up, they can’t digest the leaves well enough. So, the babies need their koala moms to help them digest. So, these leaves can even be challenging for the professional eucalyptus eaters! If you want to learn more about baby koalas, then take a look at Baby Koala: Facts about a Cute Species by Sydney Close Up where they talk about everything from the newborn to the joey that is ready to leave their mom’s pouch and explore the world.
