One of my favorite essential oils to use when I’m giving a massage is eucalyptus, as it is warming and very soothing for muscle soreness. I like to use it with pure, organic coconut oil. It has a strong, powerful scent and is excellent for any breathing or respiratory issues.
When I was living in Carmel Valley, California we had about 8 tall, beautiful eucalyptus trees lining the entrance road to our house and their fragrance filled the air especially after it rained. It was lovely!
Some of the other uses for eucalyptus oil are that it repels biting insects such as mosquitos and flies and heals skin infections as it’s antibacterial.
Eucalyptus is also great to use in any dental hygiene products such as toothpaste or mouthwash. It kills bacteria that causes bad breath and keeps the mouth healthy by reducing plaque.
It’s wonderful for helping the respiratory system. If I’m feeling like my sinuses are bothering me, I’ll put some in the palms of my hands and breathe a few deep breaths in really deeply. This is one of my remedies to feel better immediately as it wipes out bacteria and strengthens the immune system by helping the body produce its own protective mechanism.
Do you ever use eucalyptus oil? If so, I’d love to hear any other uses for it you may know of.
