Eucalyptus Essential Oil
What are the Health Benefits of Eucalyptus?
Eucalyptus (globulus) is one of the most powerful antiseptic oils as it is the best known essential oil that provides relief during cold and flu season. It is an antiviral, decongestant, and mucolytic oil that helps in breaking down and loosening mucus from bronchitis, coughs, influenza, sinusitis and throat infections.
Its antibacterial and antiviral properties make it great for room sprays, or use in a diffuser, when an outbreak of seasonal illness occurs as it deters further growth of bacteria and or viruses.
Eucalyptus is also known to aid in exhaustion, clears the mind, and aids in concentration.
