The penetrating and cleansing properties of eucalyptus make it useful for dispelling stagnant, sub-conscious feelings that can keep us bound to limiting life circumstances. It gives a wider perspective, making it well suited for people who feel "stuck" or constricted by their life circumstances. It helps to disperse the negative feelings about one's current situation so that there is an inner feeling of being able to "breathe." 

    Inhalation of the fresh, strong, and soothing aroma of eucalyptus essential oil helps to dispel melancholy, restoring a more positive outlook and vitality.

    Benefits: Breathing, oxygen uptake, blisters, bruises, colds, headache, fever, muscle aches and pains, respiratory infections and skin ulcers.

    Blends well with: Cedarwood, cypress, citonella, lavender, lemon, lime, orange, peppermint, rosemary, tea tree, thyme.

    Of interest: The eucalyptus tree grows fast and uses large amounts of water. This can help turn swamps into usable land. This process also helps to rid the area of mosquitoes.

    Eucalyptus is a member of the family Myrtaceae, along with tea tree, myrtle, cajeput, and niaouli, so it shares many actions with those plants.

    Eucalyptus trees are used to make the traditional aboriginal instrument known as the didgeridoo. Originally, this ancient instrument was crafted from a eucalyptus branch hollowed out by termites. Today, woodworkers instead of termites hollow out the branches.

    Safety Data: Should be avoided during pregnancy. Do not use if diagnosed with high blood pressure or epilepsy. Recent studies show that eucalyptus oil may induce seizures in situations where there is a prolonged, uninterrupted inhalation of eucalyptus at high concentrations. Always use in dilution when applying topically. Avoid using with homeopathic remedies as eucalyptus acts as an antidote against them. DO NOT INGEST.
