Brief History: Eucalyptus has been a traditional Australian aboriginal medicine for centuries, the aborigines called it ‘Kino’ they first used it to treat headaches, fevers and colds, then they began to use it as a poultice for festering wounds, inflammations and rheumatism. It wasn’t until the late 18th to early 19th century that eucalyptus and its benefits were first brought to Europe when a French botanist, for Jacques de Labillardière, collected specimens in Tasmania in 1799, when it first reached European shores it was known as ‘Sydney Peppermint’. Eucalyptus was first used as an antiseptic by surgeons in the early 19th century; it was used during operations and for cleaning rooms and equipment.
