Eucalyptus is actually a pretty easy tree to extract to get the flavor from. The leaves of the tree are what you would use to flavor a product. Here there is a large percentage of natural oils that contain the flavor of the eucalyptus tree.

We also mentioned some ways to make a eucalyptus tree smell and give off more aromas. We find that a happy and thriving tree will produce better leaves that smell more.

To have a thriving tree we want it to get a lot of sun during the day and also get a lot of water. But just make sure that the soil is very well draining to not run the risk of having the roots start to rot. 

Most of the eucalyptus trees will be growing in the California area. Here the tree has really established itself in recent years and shows great potential for growing and thriving here. As it originates from Australia it has found a similar home here.

Why Does My Eucalyptus Not Smell

A eucalyptus tree that doesn’t smell is not a very common issue. The tree does smell a lot from the start and is one of the most fragrant things you can grow at home. 

The reason for not smelling is probably the condition of the tree. If there are not sufficient amounts of water in the soil around it then the tree can produce and grow leaves. These are what will contain the aromas of eucalypts in the form of natural oils.

A good tip is that you could try and use some fertilizers that make the soil healthy again. This can really boost your plant and make it grow better and faster during the season.
