You might say this eucalyptus oil is the "sweetest" one—it doesn’t carry the lower aldehydic notes common in globulus, or example.

Eucalyptus globulus has a high cinele content with camphoraceous overtones. It smells very 'typical" for eucalyptus. Traditionally in western medicine. This was the only eucalyptus used
Eucalyptus globulus oil is usually rectified, or fractionated to isolate components to cut other, more expensive oils. The bulk of Eucalyptus globulus goes into the pharmaceutical industry, for cough drops, lozenges, muscle rubs and ointments, and industrial fragrance
Eucalyptus polybractea is a colorless to pale yellow mobile liquid of strong but somewhat sweet-camphoraceous and fresh-cooling odor, and it has a similar taste. Its dryout on a perfume blotter is distinctly different from that of a globulus or similar oil—it is not woody-sweet or heady, paint-like. There is hardly any dryout note at all, just a clean fadeout.

Soft ground, a blanket of green

Pink eucalyptus flowers

Are scented honey sweet
For bees to buzz about.
Pink eucalyptus flowers
(The flowers are out)
Are fair as any rose
For us to sing about.
Laying beneath your canopy admiring your silvery leaves
Before a wash of sky, I rest with enraptured ease
Your foliage so appeasing in shades of blue and green
Diffusing your balmy oils thus palliative and serene
Supplying me with oxygen, guarding my precious wealth
Reducing air's pollution - essential to human health
You shed your outer ribbons of bark in summer each year
Revealing a radiant surface so colourful, smooth and sheer
Fundamentally affording Koalas substantial, nourishing feed
Generously protecting wildlife, providing homes and seed
Native flowers oozing nectar, attract insects such as bees
Birds peck at gumnut pits and devour them easy as peas
So grounded and assured as your roots do fondly creep
Embracing Mother Earth connected, strong and deep
Please do not take eucalyptus oil internally. While it's ok in lozanges, and other tiny amounts, there is no reason to take these drops by mouth--no reason to encapsulate it, none. It's an external use oil. We know that some MLM companies recommed this and it's wrong, don't do it. It's poison. Don't give it to your children or your pets either. Never. There is never a reason this would be a good idea. Never.
As with most essential oils, dilute before using on skin. Perform a patch test before use if essential oil sensitivity is suspected. Do not take essential oils internally. Do not use on children or pets. Seek advice from a trained aromatherapist before using on people with compromised immune systems. Keep away from eyes and mucus membranes.
