Benefits for health

  • Eucalyptus essential oil has strong bactericidal properties: a spray containing 2% essential oil of Eucalyptus will kill 70% of staphylococci in the air. It has a much greater effect than eucalyptol (its active principle) when extracted and used pharmaceutically. Therefore, it is an excellent choice to keep a room/house clean and avoid contamination when someone is sick.
  • For epidemics and infectious diseases: It can also be an excellent choice to lower your temperature (in case of fever) and to prevent the spread of infection, in cholera, measles, malaria, scarlet fever and typhoid.
  • Eucalyptus oil is a good remedy to treat cold-sores (caused by the herpes virus) and the blisters occurring in shingles (due to the same virus as chickenpox). As eucalyptus is an effective local painkiller, it will give you some relief.
  • This essential oil can be used in massage oils to relieve pain in rheumatism, muscular aches and fibrositis (if you don mind its strong medicinal smell).
  • Eucalyptus oil works also well for urinary tract infections.

Emotional and psychological properties

  • Creates a sense of protection (physical and psychic) against all external attacks
  • Helps to get rid of the influence of the obsessive fixed ideas and negative thoughts.

Safety / contraindications

  • Non-toxic when used externally. DO NOT use it internally!
  • Non-irritant when properly diluted in carrier oil. Avoid using the neat (undiluted) oil on your skin.
  • Non-sensitizing
