Most Eucalyptus oils are rectified (redistilled and mixed with other distillations) to get a cineole content of 80% or more.

I do not recommend taking essential oils internally, but I want to issue a particular warning about all varieties of eucalyptus. They should not be taken internally. The literature around the world and in most schools of thought about essential oils agree that eucalyptus is toxic when taken internally. Nevertheless, the FDA (what do they know about this kind of thing?) has approved it for use as a dietary supplement. You can do most anything with the topical application of an essential oil that you would hope to do with internal consumption. Please be sensible and cautious about the internal use of any essential oil, especially with children, and do not take or administer eucalyptus oils internally at all.

CAUTIONS: Eucalyptus can be caustic to the skin if used undiluted. Not to be taken internally.
