Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globules) essential oil
Eucalyptus Oil is derived from the leaves of the eucalyptus tree and has a fresh and camphor-like scent. It is commonly used for its respiratory benefits, as it can help relieve congestion and support healthy breathing. Eucalyptus oil is often used in steam inhalations or added to diffusers during cold and flu season. It is also used in topical products such as chest rubs and balms for its soothing effect on sore muscles and joints. Additionally, eucalyptus oil has antimicrobial properties and can be used as a natural disinfectant. A great all-rounder to have at home.
Diffuser: Add 8-10 drops of essential oil to the full water chamber of your diffuser.
Massage: essential oils should always be mixed with a carrier oil when applied directly to the skin. Add 5 drops of essential oil into 10ml of carrier oil and massage into the skin. Always patch test first.
Bath: mix 12-20 drops essential oil with a carrier oil prior to putting the oils in a full drawn bath, this protects your skin and helps the oils to disperse through the bath safely.
