Oh this one, she’s been a kind soul to me this weekend. Which is just what I needed. This weekend wasn’t particularly interesting. Had a couple of major melt downs, due to frustration, and otherwise the weekend was filled with lots of homework. But because of that, I have decided to show you all the benefits of Eucalyptus :)
- Treats cold cough, runny nose, sore throat, asthma, nasal congestion, bronchitis, and sinusitis – UMMMMM I should have used this the last couple of weeks hahaha
- It is a great antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant
- Used for healing wounds, ulcers, burns, cuts, abrasions, and sores -it soothes the wound, and protects the open wound from getting infected
- It relieves stress and pain when massaged on the surface of the skin
- It is often recommened for those with: rheumatism, lumbago, sprained ligaments and tendons, stiff muscles, aches, fibrosis, and even nerve pain
- It is a stimulant: it removes exhaustion, and mental sluggishness, and rejuvenates
- It is commonly used to increase mental activity and blood flow to the brain
- It is effective against cavities, dental plaque, gingivitis – this is why it is commonly found in mouthwash, toothpaste, and other dental products
- Frequently used in treatment of lice
- Used for skin infections
- Can help control blood sugar – Which is what makes it such a great oil for Diabetics: Simply massage into the skin to help open up blood flow
- It is used for treating a fever and reducing body temperature – works well mixed with peppermint as well
- It is a vermifuge – and is often used to remove germs in the intestine
- It can also serve as a room freshener – it kills bacteria and germs in the air
- It is used in soaps, detergents, and household cleaners – mainly because of its pleasant smell, and because of its antibacterial, antiseptic, and antimicrobial qualities
- It can be used as a vapor rub or inhalant when rubbed into the chest
- It can also relieve symptoms and signs of Tuberculosis
- Many will add Eucalyptus oil to baths, spas, and saunas – because of how refreshing it is, and because of it is an anitseptic
