There are many species of eucalyptus trees. The most familiar – and the one we are talking about today – is Eucalyptus globulus. It’s leaves are steam distilled to produce a fresh, clean smelling essential oil with numerous benefits for multiple systems of the body. Much like Peppermint and Lavender, this is one PURELY™ product that should be in every first aid bag and medicine cabinet.
The most popular use of Eucalyptus essential oil is for respiratory relief. It’s high cineole content – around 85% – helps to open up airways, suppress coughing, breakdown mucus, and calm inflammation. Diluted with a carrier oil, this creates an extremely effective vapor rub for the chest and neck. Eucalyptus essential oil also has antibacterial properties which can help fight back against germs while providing the symptom relief mentioned above.
The anti-inflammatory properties of Eucalyptus also benefit the muscular systems of the body. Combined with its cooling effects, it makes for the perfect massage oil to relax weary muscles and relieve aches and pains. Its vibrant, slightly minty aroma is sure to brighten your day and improve your well-being.
