  • Aroma chemistry: So here we go.  This particular speices is an essential oil that is very high in aldehydes.  Most Eucalyptuses are high in oxides  and the component 1,8 cineole. That is where the "Vicks vapor rub" aroma comes from in E. globuous, E. masala,  E. radiata etc.     In Eucalyptus staigerieana, the high amount of aldeydes give it the lemony smell.  There are two types of aldehuydes, but all you need to know is that the lemony ones are call aliphatic aldehydes.   The chemical family aldehydes are extremely anti viral and anti infectious in general.  They can be mucous membrane irritants, so it is important to dilute them well when blending.  It is a good idea to blend an oil high in limonene when using aldehydes because the limonene has a quenching effect, which means it reduces the irritation possibility of the aldehyde, but not the therapeutic property.
