About this work
A genus of Australian trees of the Myrtaceae family that yields gums, oils, and resins which are used as flavoring agents, astringents, and aromatics, and formerly to treat diarrheoa, asthma, bronchitis, and respiratory tract infections. The flowers are favoured by bees and eucalyptus honey retains the properties of the plant. Used to be grown extensively in malarial areas in the belief that it would combat the recurring fever. Small stem of tree with young blue-green leaves.
