Hello everyone,

I have been searching on the internet about this, and been having mixed results.
Some websites ( http://www.stuartxchange.com/E... ) say you can use the Silver Dollar Tree (AKA 'Eucalyptus cinerea') for medicinal effects. They suggest making an oil or even drinking a tea made from the plant, while other say it is poisonous. Even though, Koalas roam in this tree down in its' native habitat of Australia and they're fine as its' one of their primary food sources.

Does anyone have experience with this plant using it medicinally (making oils or drinking teas made from the leaves or flowers, or is it strictly an aromatic non-medicinal plant in your opinion)?

Any help would be appreciated.

Happy Full Moon!

Those are Koalas eating the Eucalyptus trees down in Australia - Pandas eat bamboo. I don't know the answer to your question but I do know that what some animals can eat would kill others.

For instance, if you try eating bamboo without boiling it first, you may not survive the experience. Box turtles eat poisonous mushrooms, Cedar Waxwings eat holly berries, Squirrels eat acorns, cows eat Belladonna....

I thought Belladonna was used as medicine by Native Americans in small quantities in the past--or is it strictly a poison?
