Weekend Notes visits – Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil Distillery on Kangaroo Island
The essence of Australia
If there were ever such a thing as a national aroma, Australia would most certainly be represented by the refreshing, earthy, and crisp scent of eucalyptus oil.
It was the Australian Aboriginals who first recognised the healing power of the humble eucalyptus and used it medicinally to treat pain, illness, and infection.
Today the oil distilled from eucalypts is still used for these very purposes and many more. As well as possessing anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral properties, eucalyptus oil is also an effective household cleaning agent and acts as a natural insect repellent. Plus, it smells great.
