Originally native to Australia, eucalyptus trees are now grown all over the world. Eucalyptus oil is made from the tree’s oval-shaped leaves. The leaves are dried, crushed, and distilled to release the essential oil. After the oil has been extracted, it must be diluted before it can be used.
- Cough - Inhaling vapor made with the essential oil can loosen mucus so that when you do cough, it’s expelled. Using a rub containing eucalyptus oil will produce the same effect.
- Insects Repellent - Mosquitoes and other biting insects carry diseases that can be dangerous to our health. Avoiding their bites is our best defense.
- Disinfect Wounds - Today the DILUTED OIL may still be used on the skin to fight inflammation and promote healing. It can also be used on minor burns or other injuries that can be treated at home.
- Ease Joint Pain - It may also be helpful to people experiencing back pain or those recovering from a joint or muscle injury.
