Eucalyptus essential oil is one of the best selling essential oils in the world. It is a must-have essential oil for every medicine cabinet. Prized for its lung expanding and anti-congestion ability, eucalyptus essential oil is commonly added to steam rooms and saunas to clear the lungs. Eucalyptus is a traditional medicine of the Australian and Tasmanian natives as they prized the leaves for its vulnerary effects, the reduction of fever, and its anti-infectious properties. The burning of eucalyptus leaves was one of the earliest forms of fumigation, a technique the aborigines would employ to ward off insects.
Eucalyptus essential oil is considered exceptionally antiviral and antibacterial, making it suitable for practically all applications.
Eucalyptus essential oil is an excellent addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, insect repellent, perfumery, and aromatherapy.
