Dragon Scents Tips, Tricks, and Tidbits - Eucalyptus #3

Posted by Michelle Conlon on

To shrink a cold sore, put a few drops of Eucalyptus Oil neatly on the affected area.

Eucalyptus (Globules) is useful in treating cold sores due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial healing properties.  

Eucalyptus has antimicrobial effects against many bacteria, viruses (like herpes), and fungi.

Just a little dab will do!

If you have sensitive skin or have skin allergies we recommend diluting the eucalyptus oil in a carrier oil (coconut, olive, or jojoba oil) to avoid irritation.

Contradictions: Do not use on children under 12 years of age.
