Welcome to our first Essential Oil Of The Month as we begin our Autumn series with the fresh, powerful, and slightly medicinal scent of EUCALYPTUS.
Due to its amazing ability, this well-known oil has become a favorite for helping in supporting a healthy respiratory function, reducing mucus, and clearing congestion.
If you’re not familiar with Eucalyptus essential oil the first thing you need to know is that there are several types, and your choice will depend on what your intended purpose or need will be.
So let me now introduce you to three varieties of the Eucalyptus family, one of the world’s most popular essential oils.
Eucalyptus Globulus: This was the first Eucalyptus oil I was introduced to and it was love at first sniff.
This classic eucalyptus has a penetrating, fresh, and camphoraceous aroma that actually cleared my sinuses within minutes.
The qualities of this oil are uplifting, great for clearing your mind, aids in concentration, and helps to soothe exhaustion.
Eucalyptus Globulus great therapeutic benefits are a wonderful addition when used with massage to help ease muscular and arthritis pain.
It has been shown to help purify germs from the air, and may aid in protecting your health during the cold and flu season.
Eucalyptus Radiata: This oil has a gentler, softer, and more camphorous aroma with just a hint of floral and citrus.
Eucalyptus Radiata has many of the same supportive properties as Eucalyptus Globulus when it comes to maintaining a healthy respiratory system, staying focused, and soothing inflammation.
You can diffuse it to help purify your air by reducing unwanted microbes, including fungus, viruses, and bacteria.
And last but certainly not least it is a wonderful non toxic oil to incorporate into your household cleaning products.
Eucalyptus Dives: This type of eucalyptus may not be as familiar to many of you but definitely worth a try.
Eucalyptus Dives has many of the same therapeutic benefits as Eucalyptus Globulus with an added refreshing note of peppermint.
Eucalyptus Dives cooling menthol aroma helps support normal breathing, stop sniffles, clears sinuses, and can also help alleviate sore muscles symptoms.
This oil has been shown to offer immune support and helps to re-energize your body and uplift your mind especially after periods of lethargy.
