5 Health Benefits of Eucalyptus Oil Heals Wounds;
Eucalyptus essential oil has antiseptic qualities because of its germicidal quality. Upon exposure to air, ozone is formed which is a well-researched antiseptic. Therefore, eucalyptus oil is used for healing wounds, ulcers, burns, cuts, abrasions, and sores. It is also an effective salve for insect bites and stings. Furthermore, besides soothing the affected area, it also protects the open wound or irritated area from developing infections from microbial activity and exposure to air. Treats Respiratory Problems:
Eucalyptus essential oil is effective for treating a number of respiratory problems including cold, cough, running nose, sore throat, asthma, nasal congestion, bronchitis, and sinusitis. Rub 3 drops of oil on your chest. Relieves Muscle Pain:
If you are experiencing joint and muscle pain, massaging eucalyptus oil on the surface of the skinhelps to relieve stress and pain. The volatile eucalyptus oil is analgesic and anti-inflammatory in nature. Therefore it is often recommended to patients suffering from rheumatism, lumbago, sprained ligaments and tendons, stiff muscles, aches, fibrosis and even nerve pain. The oil should be massaged in a circular motion on the affected areas of the body. Skin Care:
Eucalyptus oil is often applied topically to treat skin infections and it helps speed up healing. Treats Fever:
Eucalyptus oil is also used for treating fever and reducing body temperature. This is why one of the common names of eucalyptus oil is “fever oil”. It works well when combined with peppermint oil and sprayed on the body as a mixture of a deodorant and a temperature reducer.
This are my most important ways to use eucalyptus oil in my book. Check with a doctor just incase you may be allergic.
