Enjoy a burst of fresh energy with our pure Eucalyptus Essential Oil and its crisp, refreshing aroma will awaken your body & mind.
An icon of Australia, the eucalyptus tree is instantly recognizable as the leafy diet of cuddly Koalas. But, it has more use than just being fodder for these marsupials - the leaves and barks of Eucalyptus trees were used by Aboriginal Australians to treat a variety of ailments. When British settlers arrived in the country and began to imitate and refine local cures, many of the benefits of Eucalyptus Oil came to light.
Eucalyptus oil is an all-rounder that is essential in any medicine cabinet - it is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. The camphor-like smell from its leaves deters insects and therefore, this oil acts as an effective insect repellant.
When applied on the skin, Eucalyptus Oil has a cooling effect - making it a popular ingredient for vapour rubs and muscle gels. While its cooling effect provides a welcome relief, Eucalyptus also has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties that effectively soothe aches & pains.
The vapours from Eucalytpus Oil are more than just a refreshing, clean scent - it opens airways and relieves stuffy noses. Research has found that vapourized Eucalyptus Oil also has anti-microbial effects that can help relieve coughs & colds.
Every essential oil unit comes in an amber frosted glass bottle with an easy to use dropper and includes a batch number & best before date. The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) and Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) are available upon request.
Suitable for pregnant women
If you are using Eucalyptus in a diffuser but find that you need more direct vapour, steam inhalation may be the way to go - Add a few drops of Eucalyptus oil to a bowl of steaming hot water and carefully drape a towel over your shoulders to direct the steam to your face. Combining steam and Eucalyptus vapour may help relieve congestion.
While smelling fresh to our noses, Eucalyptus oil drives away most insects. To keep the bugs out, add 3-5 drops of this oil to a cotton ball and place it in your cupboards, under your beds etc.
The compound that lends Eucalyptus Oil its name and all of its amazing qualities is Eucalyptol - while found in smaller quantities in other plants such as Tea Tree, Eucalyptus has the highest concentration of it. Eucalyptol helps control airway mucus hypersecretion and also repels insects.
