Differences: Eucalyptus Globulus has a fresh and earthy aroma and is known for its strength. Eucalyptus Radiata is enjoyed for its milder, sweet aroma and is a good option for longer-term use. Eucalyptus Citriodora has a fresh, lemony aroma used for air disinfecting and is a good choice for nighttime use since it’s less stimulating. Eucalyptus Smithii is used for the prevention and treatment of muscle and joint aches. Due to its mildness, Eucalyptus Smithii is also often preferred for children and the elderly.
