ESSENTIAL OIL KIT, PART 3 – EUCALYPTUS
by KG Stiles, LMT, RBT, CBP, CAT
Whether you use aromatherapy as a stand alone or as a complementary first aid treatment there are several aromatic oils I’d like to recommend you have in your aromatic first aid kit.
My recommendations include important details for you to consider when purchasing an oil, such as its Latin Name, Country of Origin, Method of Extraction and Part of the Plant Used. I also list the best oils to consider when creating a synergistic blend.
EUCALYPTUS ( Eucalyptus globulus ) Certified Organic, Steam Distilled Leaf, Corsica.
A fresh, powerful, and long lasting scent, Eucalyptus has a long standing reputation as an effective respiratory decongestant.
Keywords: RESPIRATORY AID Eucalyptus is known for its broad spectrum anti-microbial action. Its antiseptic, anti-infectious, antibacterial and anti viral properties make it a powerful remedy to consider for flu, colds, sore throats, coughs, sinusitis, bronchitis, hay fever, and acne.
Its bronchio-dilating action helps ease inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes, as well as nasal congestion. Try it for relieving asthma, catarrh and headaches especially when due to any sort of congestion.
Eucalyptus also makes an excellent insect repellent!
Try a synergistic blend of Eucalyptus with any of the following aromatic oils: Basil, Atlas Cedarwood, Himalayan Cedarwood, Cypress, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon and Rosemary.
