Eucalyptus is an evergreen tree that’s widely used for its medicinal properties. Although it is native to Australia, this popular tree now grows in many areas of the world. Although eucalyptus is bought for beautification, they also possess medicinal values as the leaves can be made into essential oil for topical use or inhalation.
Eucalyptus has a gum-infused bark, long stems, and circular leaves that are hard to digest if eaten whole. However, eucalyptus leaves can be made into a tea that’s safe for consumption.
