Benefits, Blends and Uses of Eucalyptus Essential Oil

If you’ve ever been to a spa, then you know the unmistakable herbaceous scent of Eucalyptus and the calming, refreshing, cleansing, and rebalancing benefits that make it a household staple.  

What is Eucalyptus Oil?

Eucalyptus oil is derived from the leaves of the Eucalyptus plant which was native to Australia but is now grown all over the world and used for their medical and aromatherapy properties. The Eucalyptus leaves are dried, crushed, and distilled to release the essential oil that we love so much.


Benefits of Eucalyptus Oil

There are many benefits of using Eucalyptus Oil for both medical and aromatherapy purposes. Eucalyptus has been used to relieve coughs and clear chests from mucus as it’s been a main ingredient in cough suppressants such as VicksVapoRub. It also has cleansing abilities with its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which is not only why it is used in spa steam rooms, but also what makes Eucalyptus an excellent wound disinfectant, and it is used to ease joint pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. When diffused with a carrier oil and applied to the skin or added to water in a diffuser, Eucalyptus oil promotes deep, open breathing and can repel insects. 

How to use Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus oil can be added to distilled water as an ambience or body mist or to a diffuser to fill your space with the herbaceous scent. It can also be added to a carrier oil or to your unscented skincare products and applied to your skin. Around the house, it can be added to your laundry detergent to add freshness and cleanliness to your laundry or added to your DIY cleaning solution to leave a pleasant scent while you disinfect your home.
