Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil  is an ideal natural product for the body,  in and around the house, and in the workshop.

This unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.

Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries.

One company, F.H.Faulding & Co purchased Emu Ridge in 1923, establishing two plantations in 1938 for the purpose of systematically harvesting it on a rotational basis (Narrow Leaf responds well to pruning). Most success, however, was achieved by individuals who set up stills as a seasonal sideline.

Our oil is distilled in the traditional method at Emu Ridge. The leaf is placed into a pot containing water, beneath which a fire is lit, steam carrying the oil is passed through a system of cooling pipes, the oil separates and is piped off into containers. The raw oil undergoes another refining process to produce the final product crystal clear oil.

Native farming is far better for our environment, no sprays and chemicals, a great renewable resource and natural product.

    Thank you for your email, but why wouldn’t I trust you with my business when your products and service are top class.

    Your Skin Repair Cream is wonderful and has helped with my on-going skin condition.

    Having had breast cancer it is difficult to find a good deodorant and the one I have been purchasing from you is the best.

    With my most recent order I got some eucalyptus oil and have just opened it to put some in with my washing. I couldn’t get over the perfume. Being a fan of our beautiful country and the smell of gum trees I was staggered at how you have managed to put that exact smell into a bottle. It is fantastic. I have now put a few drops into my air freshener and now I have the wonderful smell of gum trees in my lounge room.

    Thank you so much. You will have another order from my shortly

    Kindest regards, Barb

    I purchased the Eucalyptus Oil in the aluminium container. I love the scent and it is absolutely perfect for cleaning and laundry. It cleans and disinfects very well. Just one swipe will do. Your online shop is super straight forward and user friendly. Easy to browse your different products.

  3. Lucia

    We use a lot of eucalyptus oil for diffusers, cleaning, inhaling etc

  4. Lin

    Emu Ridge produces high quality products that are well priced. I have been using the eucalyptus oil as an antiseptic solution for viruses, cuts, abrasions, and general household cleaning for a couple of years now and won’t use any other brand.

    Hi Bev

    Received Eucolyptus oil today and appreciate your expediency.

    I’ll now over the weekend be able to spread it in my household and cars whilst
    I’m overseas.

    After sales service as expected from a fine establishment. Well done to all.

    My next order will be in a few months time when I return.

    Many thanks

  6. Tara

    Hi Guys,
    My order arrived safely today, Thank you.
    I’m an asthmatic and use the eucalyptus oil in all my house cleaning and disinfecting and it really helps me.
    At night I fill the sink with hot water and a little Euc Oil to sterilize my dish cloths and the whole kitchen.. Lovely fresh kitchen in the morning..

  7. Kerry Rawlings

    We use the eucalyptus oil in our caravan toilet. It works perfectly without destroying the environment.

  8. anonymous

    This Eucalyptus Oil is the best – it is so versatile and I use it all the time.
    Great service, great products, and very timely delivery. You guys are always a pleasure to deal with.

  9. Melanie Brenton

    I absolutely love using your Eucalyptus oil for EVERYTHING. However, my favourite oil would have to be lemon myrtle – the smell is divine and reminds me of my mum’s house. I also love receiving the newsletter info, and hearing what the farm/family is up to. Keep it up.

  10. Keryn Winterton

    My favourite product is the eucalyptus oil. The quality is excellent and I know that I am purchasing a genuine Australian product.

  11. Alleyn Thomas

    Your products are the best.. I buy your eucalyptus oil in bulk, I wash my floors with it and my clothes. I tried everything to clean the kids crayon drawings from the lounge room wall. Eucalyptus was the only thing that did it. I cleaned the internal trim of the car once and removed years of fly poo from living on a piggery. I was so pleased with the results.

  12. Derek O’Reilly

    I really like this 100% pure Eucalyptus Oil. I use it for floor cleaning and to remove glues from items.

  13. anonymous

    I am extremely happy with this Eucalyptus Oil – It can be purchased in a large bottle and is better than any other brands I have tried.

  14. anonymous

    I have been using the Eucalyptus Oil for 18 months to clean and disinfect my home.
    We use it as an air freshener and to clear cold and sinuses in the winter months and the burn off season in Sydney. We love the smell!

  15. Mary Austin

    Brilliant. Combined with the uses book I use it everywhere. Most important it is Australian not Chinese! Happy to pay postage to WA for 5 litres to have a truly quality product

    • Bev Turner

      Thanks Mary that what we love to hear thankyou for your support regards Bev

  16. Julie

    Hi Larry & Bev (and the rest of the Emu Ridge Crew)
    I’ve had a bottle of your eucalyptus oil in my laundry cupboard for the last 28yrs and have been using it for cleaning and deodorising.
    I bought my first 500ml bottle when I was working for Rex Ellis, trekking Camels near American River back in the early 90’s to keep mozzies away and clean stains out of my wooly jumper.
    I love that you’re a South Aussie Family business that is Tru Blue Aussie in so many ways and I am loving that I have finally found your website and can order online. More recently I have discovered your face cream and find it helps me with a calming night routine to get me off to a restful sleep.
    Last weekend I was lucky enough to visit your beautiful Island for the fist time in 20 years and it reminded me of how much of a treasure KI is
    It is my privilege to be able to purchase your wonderful products and I am spreading the word

    Keep up the great work.

    Cheers, Julie

  17. Lynne

    I purchased the Emu oil for my mother for her arthritis and she absolutely swears by it.
    The eucalyptus oil I use for cleaning as i try and move away from the more chemically based cleaners.
    I have a very sad addiction to the eucalyptus and honey drops as they’re pretty delicious.
    It’s so important to support local Australian owned businesses and I like to do my bit in making sure that our local manufacturers/producers survive. I will continue to support Emu Ridge as they produce a quality product and one that is fully Australian owned.

  18. Jane

    The products are wonderful i clean everything with the eucalyptus including my carpets and spot clean my lounge to, i also love the eucalyptus lollies great for coughs and a sore throat. Wonderful place will definitely be back.

  19. Hubert

    The Eucalyptus oil is useful for so many different things.
    I never have got a oil in this quality here in Germany.

  20. Laura

    My husband and I visited your distillery 4 months ago and we were introduced to your amazing eucalyptus oil!
    I use the Eucalyptus oil for just about everything! It also smells great!!! I also love the eucalyptus and honey sweets; they are sooooo yummy!!!!!Thank you for making such wonderful products which I will keep ordering in the future!

  21. Moira

    My favourite product is eucalyptus oil because I use it a lot for washing and cleaning.

  22. Jennifer

    I bought Eucalyptus Oil and am very happy with this product. I would recommend Emu Ridge products as they are of a very high quality and the service was excellent.

  23. Heather

    I’ve discovered how useful eucalyptus oil is and love the little booklet you produce. I’m converted.

  24. Janelle W.

    Emu Ridge is so happy to help and post things out. My orders always seem very personal. And Im happy you don’t send too many emails advertising etc!! I like using a family owned business and the Eucalyptus oil can been used for such a variety of uses.

  25. Wai Jong

    I bought some gift packs of emu oil, tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil and I tried the product when I got arthritis pain, it really helps to ease the pain, so I bought a larger size for myself and my family online.

  26. Sue H

    We have a septic system and rely on rainwater so we use a high efficiency washing machine and eco washing powder with no chemicals. A teaspoon/capful of eucalyptus oil per load makes the washing smell good, keeps the machine clean and (reputedly) kills mould and bacteria. I love this natural product. One litre lasts us a year.

    We visit Eucalyptus Ridge when we can – it’s a great place to visit – but mostly I purchase on line. The service is excellent.

    It’s crucially important now to use natural products. Cutting down on chemicals is one small way we can contribute to the on-going battle against environmental pollution. Not all products labelled ‘pure’ are, in fact pure. Eucalyptus oil from Emu Ridge is 100% pure: you can smell (and feel) the difference. Please extract anything else from my comments to use as a testimonial on your website.

  27. Jan

    Favourite Product – Eucalyptus Oil, I use it for everything.
    Best products ever, great family business.

  28. Jan

    Favourite Product – Eucalyptus Oil because I want it made in Australia from Australian ingredients by Australian farmers.

  29. Anonymous from survey

    The Hand & Nail Cream is excellent and has been a God send to me as my hands are dry and cracked and they are so much better since I have been using the product.

    Emu Ridge is a fabulous authentic Australian family business located on wonderful Kangaroo Island. The products are genuinely world class and have many benefits without the issues associated with chemically based products. I think that this family business is outstanding and I will choose their oils and creams over the so called big brands. Well done Emu Ridge.

  30. Karen Miles

    Emu Ridge’s Eucalyptus Oil is a wonderful, pure product.

  31. Judy

    Love the moisteriser and also the Eucalyptus oil.

  32. Owen

    I use it in the workshop and for household use. It is a very good cutting oil in metal work and leather work.

  33. Erin

    I mainly purchase the eucalyptus oil by the litre. I use it for so many things and I know the quality is superb. Also, I like to support small businesses, and after travelling to Kangaroo Island, fell in love with the place. Happy to support the business, and thankful for their personalised customer service and purchases are received in good time.

  34. Stephane

    Favourite Product – Eucalyptus oil. Because I have never seen another oil as good as this one. Simply amazing. Great service, great communication, great products. I live very far away but ordering from Emu Ridge is as easy as if we were neighbours. Will order from you again for sure. Many thanks

    We use a drop on the back of our tongue for stopping a cough, and always do the same when on any public transport/air craft/cruise as a preventative measure to kill off nasty germs.

  37. Anonymous

    Amazing eucalyptus oil that is like no other. I use it to create my famous hair and shampoo soap.

  38. Jules

    Favourite Product – Eucalyptus oil, I use it in lots of ways, know it is pure.

  39. Kim

    Australian Made Eucalyptus Oil. Use it for cleaning and laundry. Also love Lemon Myrtle oil, a couple of drops in floor washing water leaves the house smelling fresh.

  40. Marla

    My question, if it is so pure and natural why it screams Poison on the label? I did not find it to have overwhelmingly potent scent.

    • Bev Turner

      Hi Marla, eucalyptus oil is a highly concentrated medicine and an adult only needs a few drops, a 10ml bottle doesn’t have to have poison on the label, but larger bottles do, Australia has very strict laws, if a baby drank a more than 10ml all at once it can burn there insides and take there breath away. An adult only needs a few drops thats why it must say poison on the bottle, otherwise people might try to drink it and think it is medicine. Hope this helps. Its also wonderful for natural cleaning and so much more. Kind regards Bev

  41. Kate

    Favourite Product – Eucalyptus oil because its used for all sorts of cleaning/laundry jobs around the house and property. And cos it smells of the wonderful Australian bush.

  42. Suzanne

    Eucalyptus oil because it smells fantastic and has many uses eg: use it in the wash great in a spray bottle with water for cleaning and for colds 🙂

  43. G. Ellison

    eucalyptus and tea tree oils. Very potent and top quality

  44. Kristin

    tea tree and eucalyptus. i am from the states and my friend visited your farm and brought me some oils. i could not believe the difference in quality. i was so happy when you started to ship to the states. i will always buy from your place.

  45. Peter

    Emu oil and eucalyptus oil. Very good for arthritic and muscular pains.

  46. Doug

    The pure eucalyptus oil is my favourite. I love the smell n I use it throughout the house for cleaning,washing, disinfecting, and as an aromatherapy oil.

  47. Wilma

    Best eucalyptus oil I’ve ever found. It smells ‘real’ not manufactured. Best of all it works for all cleaning, washing, disinfecting, etc. I love it n will use no other.

  48. Chris

    The eucalyptus is so good, I have been using it in the wash, in my vaporiser & also as steam inhalation today because I have a cold. It really helps. I also love those eucalyptus drops – very delicious! It helps to suck on one if my throat is feeling scratchy. I’ll be using the chest rub tonight too!

  49. Mary

    Use eucalyptus oil everywhere. Now have all the family using it also now we can guarantee it is Australian. Tea tree oil goes all over the world with me as the best antiseptic.

  50. Doreen

    I visited your shop on Kangaroo Island and have only bought eucalyptus oil from you ever since – about 4 years ago.

  51. Robyn

    Shortly following a recent delivery of a litre of emu oil and a bottle of eucalyptus, I strained a muscle in my back. Pain and spasm followed. I began taking three teaspoons of oil per day and massaging the sore area with an emu oil and eucalyptus liniment. I also chose bed rest and within within two days could straighten my spine and walk without pain. What a fabulous anti inflammatory – I took no other!
    I also made a gift of liniment to a neighbour who has a broken arm, suggesting that it might be useful in reducing her hand pain. She noticed improvement immediately.
    Another friend had a medically induced burn on his hand which was slow to heal. One application of emu oil made a huge difference and he happily went home with a small sample.
    Robyn (70 years.)

  52. Joan

    Eucalyptus oil for treating coughs but also for the variety of other uses of the oil listed in your excellent book

  53. Narelle

    Eucalyptus oil. I know this is pure oil, it’s also locally produced; sustainable, medicinal grade (only need a couple of drops for chest rubs, inhalation etc) a cap full in water for cleaning/ sterilising etc. gets rid of marks on floors, rugs clothing

  54. Rosemary

    Eucalyptus Oil,Love all the products that I have tried,&that they are made with no nasties.

  55. Joan

    Thanks for my order, I love your eucalyptus oil, I use it for cleaning my floors and in the washing and its so nice to know that I’m supporting an Aussie business, keep up the great work and service thanks.

  56. Erin b

    The ordering process is so quick and easy, and I always receive the items in good time, always well-packed so never any damage. I love browsing the shop on the website – everything is well-displayed. Keep up the great service.

  57. Carissa

    Eucalyptus and Emu oils. They’re extremely high quality and can’t be as reliably found elsewhere!

  58. Julie Stuttard

    I have been using the eucalyptus oil and the tea tree oil for more than 3 years now. There are so many uses for both, they are all natural and smell very fresh and Australian. Recently I have purchased some value added products which are also wonderful. Thank you all at Emu Ridge

  59. Danie

    Emu Ridge is a reliable and user friendly business which provides great products. I always receive my order quite quickly and I will continue to shop with them. Danie, Qld.

  60. The Thomasons and the LaFrinieres

    We were lucky to visit Emu Ride and meet Larry and some of his family. It was truly one of the highlights of our trip. Wonderful people, informative and products that are great,

  61. Lynne

    Loved the prompt service. Goods were delivered well packed with emails advising on progress of delivery. Will definitely shop on line again.

  62. Tony

    Super fast delivery and a great range of products. You will not be disappointed.

  63. Gaby

    I’m looking forward to the delivery. I use and love your oil since my husband and I where on your farm while our honeymoon 1994.

    I love the oil for everything in the household or as first aid in case of a cold ( even for my cats). I wouldn’t miss it anymore. Thanks for delivering even to Switzerland.

  64. Gina

    I am very happy with the product & the instructions that came with it. I am also happy with how quickly it arrived in the post. Some further feedback includes as follows.

    1. It would be great if future products either give the expiry date or give the information “No expiry date for this one”, so I do not need to request it.

    2. This one is general feedback only, as I was happy with the very safe arrival of my product from Emu Ridge. In the past, I have dealt with companies who insist on posting items by express because they feel pressured by other customers to receive items within a day. My personal preference it that the product is delivered safely as Emu Ridge has done, including a card left in my post box to pick it up from the post, because I was not at home when the parcel arrived. So thank you, Emu Ridge, for posting my product by normal mail and respecting my preference to wait as long as it takes for a safe delivery rather than finding it lying around on common property because it was assumed I was an inpatient customer who wanted an Express post.

    3. Thank you for allowing me to pay offline. Just a reminder to pass on information to other NSW customers (can do via your website) to pay through St George Bank (who will take it for free) and definitely not through Westpac (who will charge $15.)

    Please stay the way you are and please always make all products you have be made in Australia where ever possible. That is the reason I ordered it from you instead of buying it retail.

    Thank you. Kind Regards, Gina.

  65. Anne Shirtliff

    Visited your KI enterprise last year and was very impressed. Brought a few small samples home. Love the eucalyptus lip balm and the hand cream. In fact I bought more lip balm for my hubby on line this year for his birthday as he says it is the only brand that keeps his lips moisturized!
    Haven’t used my oil yet, but after reading all the uses for it, am keen to try it out for cleaning purposes.

  66. Danie Tuckwell

    I regularly add eucalyptus oil to my wash to prevent stains. It is more effective than spot cleaning before the wash and the lovely scent is a bonus. I have asthma and do not use cleaning products which is fine because eucalyptus oil is fantastically versatile as a cleaning agent around the house. Your online service is great. Really fast and efficient and backed up by ‘real people’!

    I have used Eucalyptus Oil on and off over the years. However, it wasn’t until we visited Emu Ridge and I bought a bottle, it became an essential part of my first aid kit and cleaning supplies. Love it and love the freshness it brings to my home. And considering we live in the bush it is appropriate. The online ordering is efficient and delivering is prompt. thank you.

  69. Marie Hogg

    I use Eucalyptus oil for too many purposes to list here, but am always excited to receive my 5litres of the beautiful stuff from this business. There is never any hassle with the ordering or receiving of the order, and it is always packed with care and love. highly recommend this business and their lovely eucalyptus oil.

  70. Leanne Palmer

    Fantastic Aussie oil! Great to be able to support an all Australian company and smells better than any other I have ever bought. I use it on the floor, mixed with metho to clean my benches and polish the sink, add it to my final rinse in the washing machine and put drops in my vaporiser I love it and will continue to order from the “farm door.” I will have to get the recipe for the glass cleaner and try the idea for the toilet cleaner. Thank you for the amazingly quick arrival of my oil too.( Ps I have a new email address)

  71. Jocelyn Johnstone

    I visited Emu Ridge while on a tour of Kangaroo Island in 2015. As we were due to fly back to Brisbane, I could only bring home the smaller sizes of your products. Absolutely love your lip balm, it is truly the best and I refuse to use anything else. Also love the eucalyptus oil, the amazing hand cream and your honey.
    My daughter and I recently placed an online order for more products and I was totally surprised at how quick the delivery was. I plan to place another order soon for the larger size of your euco oil, laundry liquid and shampoo/conditioner.
    For anybody thinking about purchasing your products : DON’T HESITATE !!! They are exceptional quality, ordering online is so easy and delivery is safe and so fast.
    So happy to support a fantastic, Australian, family owned business and I wish you all continued success.
