- Clears breathing pathways
- Enhances respiratory function
- Relieves sore muscles and joints
- Cleanses and purifies
Often termed “Gum Trees,” these evergreens can grow to be up to 50 feet tall. Perhaps the #eucalyptus absorbs some of the clean air from such a height, as one of the oil’s primary benefits lies in supporting respiratory function. This property is mainly due to the high eucalyptol and alpha-terpineol content in this species, the Eucalyptus radiate. Clear breathing is only one of the oil’s many versatile uses, however; it can also help purify the skin and the air, cleanse surfaces, and relieve sore muscles and joints. Fresh breath and oral hygiene are also among eucalyptus’ many benefits; this is why eucalyptus is often used in gum and mouth rinses.
- For a great cleansing spray, combine with peppermint, lemon and distilled water in a spray bottle and use as needed.
- To support respiratory function, dilute with a carrier oil and apply to the chest.
- Clear breathing pathways by placing a few drops in the palms, placing your hands over your nose, and inhaling deeply (particularly effective in a steam shower).
