Terpene: Eucalyptol

Terpene: Eucalyptol was first discovered by French chemist Stanislas Cloez in 1870. But long before that discovery, herbal medicine touted eucalyptus as a cough suppressant, mood enhancer, and antibacterial agent. Today, eucalyptol still has a wide range of applications, from its prominent use in the skincare industry and a massage oil and aromatherapy product.

Aroma: spicy and minty

Fun Fact: American colonials would chew on eucalyptus leaves for energy and sweeten breath. They would then use the saliva soggy leaves to place on cuts and wounds.
