    Re: which is the correct sentence

    "The oil from Eucalyptus trees, which are native to Australia, is known for its medicinal properties."

    is correct

    The commas are used to separate parts of the sentence which can
    be removed and leave a sentence which still makes sense.

    "The oil from Eucalyptus trees is known for its medicinal properties."
