Eucalyptus Globulus is a large, evergreen, deciduous tree from the Myrtaceae or the myrtle family. On average, the plant grows to a height of 45 feet. However, depending on the growing conditions, its growth cans sometimes either be stunted or promoted. At maximum, a Eucalyptus Globulus plant can grow as tall as 300 to 330 feet. The plant is also called southern blue gum and Tasmanian blue gum.
The lance-shaped, glossy green leaves of Eucalyptus Globulus, which are whitish and waxy (from the lower side) when young, are the source of eucalyptus essential oil. They are also widely used for their incredible therapeutic properties.
It’s important to mention that eucalyptus essential oil, extracted from the leaves of Eucalyptus Globulus, has been acknowledged for internal pharmaceutical uses because of the absence of phellandrene. This is a precondition for any medicinal compound to be approved for internal use.

Eucalyptus Globulus plant got the name of fever tree in 1862, five years after it was first planted in Algeria. The name was given because the eucalyptus plants had dried the marshy area (where they were planted) within only five years. This eventually destroyed the mosquito habitat and significantly reduced their quantity in the area.
