The blue eucalyptus belongs to the myrtle family and is one of the more than 500 species of eucalyptus known as the “common” eucalyptus. It is an evergreen tree that usually reaches heights of up to 35 meters. The largest specimen is in Tasmania, measures a good 90 meters and is one of the tallest trees in the world. The straight trunk has an ash-gray to red-brown, yellow-green to light yellow interior bark, which comes off the tree in large strips. The young leaves are opposite, oval-heart-shaped and are 6 to 15 centimeters long. The older leaves, from which the essential oil is extracted, are more sickle-shaped, thick leathery and grow up to 35 centimeters tall.



Known as a flatterer for the respiratory tract, eucalyptus oil also has a cooling and circulation-stimulating effect as well as being a strong antiseptic and disinfectant. Used in our sports gel, the eucalyptus oil ideally refreshes and cools stressed areas of the body after sport and physical exertion.
