1. Improve respiratory system
According to Dr Couic Marinier, “Eucalyptus Globulus Oil is primarily beneficial for the respiratory system”.
Of all the Essential Oils, Eucalyptus Essential Oil is believed to be the most effective in treating conditions such as bronchitis, asthma, sinusitis, colds, coughs or the flu. Rich in cineole, Eucalyptus Oil is highly effective in relieving congestion and aiding the respiratory system in the long term.
2. Fights infection
‘Eucalyptol’ is Eucalyptus Oil’s primary component and has been shown to have antimicrobial effects.
Dr Couic Marinier adds, “various studies have shown how effective Eucalyptus Essential Oil is at inhibiting and preventing infection”.
Whether used internally or externally, Eucalyptus Oil works to reduce inflammation and provide natural pain relief.
Other Essential Oils such as Chamomile Oil and Clove Oil also have potent anti-inflammatory properties.
4. Alleviate headaches
Eucalyptus Essential Oil can alleviate sinus pressure, which can often be responsible for the pain and tension that can cause headaches.
Furthermore, Eucalyptus Oil also promotes relaxation of tense facial muscles which can also contribute to headaches caused by stress or exhaustion.
5. Boost mental clarity
Thanks to its invigorating, soothing and awakening properties, Eucalyptus Oil is often used to boost energy and mental clarity.
