Blue Mallee or (Eucalyptus polybractea) is another eucalyptus in the myrtle family of botanical plants that comes from Australia. We get this oil from steam distillation of the leaves. Traditionally Eucalyptus polybractea is used in the same way as Eucalpytus Globulus. The Australian aborigines used the disinfecting leaves to cover wounds. The leaves and the oil were used especially for respiratory ailment such as bronchitis and croup and the dried leaves were smoked like tobacco for asthma.
