Yellow Gum Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus leucoxylon) blue gum or white ironbark, is a species of eucalypt that is endemic to Australia.

It is widely distributed on plains and nearby mountain ranges or coastal South Australia, where it is known as the Blue Gum and extends into the western half of Victoria where it is known as the yellow gum.

The leaves of yellow gum eucalyptus trees are distilled for the production of cineole based eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus oil has a history of wide application, as a pharmaceutical, antiseptic, repellent, flavouring, fragrance and industrial uses.
