There are some "Eucalyptus oils" from India that have camphor in them
... and that will intensify the stain by hitting it with a fast
transdermal megaterp. I don't like using anything with camphor,
though, as it can make people sick (nauseous, intoxicated)

I"ve done comparison tests with Eucs I"ve purchased here .. and in my
experience prepping the skin with them makes no difference in the
resulting stain. If you LIKE it ... I suppose there's no reason not
to, except that some people really don't like the smell or may be
sensitive to it. It does NOT open pores. It opens your sinuses .. but
not your skin. There is some evidence that euc may have a mild
euphoric that you whiff and feel better ... and feel better about the
world around you ...
