Hey Folk, it's getting colder out there and I believe some of you are starting to feel congested and harvesting the first winter cold.. Here's an amazing oil which might help you to relieve those symptoms and prevent your cold.
Eucalyptus essential oil is obtained from fresh leaves of the tall, evergreen eucalyptus tree. The tree, scientifically classified as Eucalyptus Globulus is also known as fever tree, blue gum tree or stringy bark tree, depending on where it is located in the world. Eucalyptus is native to Australia and has spread in the past few centuries to other parts of the world including India, Europe and South Africa. Eucalyptus essential oil is effective for treating cold, cough, runny nose, sore throat, asthma, nasal congestion, bronchitis and sinusitis. Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and decongestant in nature. On another note, Eucalyptus oil dissolves feeling of melancholy and restores positive energy! No wonder Koala bears love this plant!
- Put 2 drops of essential oil on your palms, rub them together and place hands in front of your face, breath in deeply 3 times. Repeat when you feel the congestion hitting you.
- Vaporise 3 drops of Eucalyptus and 3 drops of tea tree in the room you're in, to ease breathing during colds or to help prevent airborne infection.
-Mix Eucalyptus (3drops) with Myrrh (1drops) and Cedar-wood (1drops) in a carrier oil (10ml) and rub into the chest morning and evening to ease coughs.
Happy mixing and goo luck!
