Eucalyptus Essential Oil - Benefits & Uses

All essential oils focus on specific healing properties and aromatherapy for the body. Many people use these for holistic healing to help relieve cold symptoms, relieve inflammation, and are used as cleaning ingredients.

What is Eucalyptus?

Their healing power comes from eucalyptus oil, which is made from the tree’s oval-shaped leaves. The leaves are crushed and the oil is extracted to use in medicinal properties.

Silence a Cough & Clear Congestion

Did you know Vick's Vapor Rub has a small percentage of Eucalyptus in it? This solution is rubbed into the chest to help relieve coughs. Additionally, it can help clear up congestion in your chest. Inhaling vapor made with the essential oil can loosen mucus so that when you do cough, it’s expelled.

Breathe Easier

Similar to the above, this oil also aids in breathing. It clears up your chest and lungs which helps you breathe easier in your environment. This can be used for people with asthma to help them relieve symptoms and keep asthma attacks at bay.

Freshen Breath & Soothe Cold Sores

Most people think of mint or peppermint for fresh breath and drying out cold sores. However, most solutions also include eucalyptus oil as well! Because of its antibacterial properties, eucalyptus oil can be used to fight the germs that cause unfortunate mouth odor. For cold sores, applying eucalyptus oil may reduce pain and speed up the healing process.

Clearer Face

For relief of acne and sunburn this essential oil is also used! Due to its ability to reduce redness, relieve pain and soothe burning skin, eucalyptus oil is also ideal for treating sunburn. As a natural antimicrobial, eucalyptus oil has been found to effectively work against acne bacteria and also helps to reduce oil production, two of the conditions that lead to acne.
