Eucalyptus smithii oil is a colourless or very pale yellow, mobile liquid with a fresh cineole-like odour.
The major component of Eucalyptus smithii essential oil is 1,8-cineole. The 1,8-cineole content can be as high as 75-84%. Other constituents found in the oil include monoterpene hydrocarbons: α-pinene (4-6%), limonene (0.2-0.6%), p-cymene (0.4-2%),. α-terpineol (1.5-2.5%) is the major oxygenated monoterpene.

Of these, 35 are sesquiterpenes.
