8 Incredible Benefits of Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Eucalyptus essential oil, surprisingly, is a fairly new oil in the world of aromatherapy. Until recently, not as much was known about eucalyptus essential oil when compared to other oils simply because it wasn’t used as frequently as ancient classics like lavender, peppermint, or bergamot. Luckily, a lot has been learned about eucalyptus essential oil in these recent years, and it has been found that eucalyptus essential oil provides incredible benefits to both the body and the home.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil Benefits For The Body

  1. Helps to Treat Respiratory Symptoms

    Eucalyptus is a powerful natural decongestant, which makes it perfect for helping to treat respiratory symptoms particularly when you have a cold. Colds and allergies can cause the body to overproduce mucus in the sinus and chest, causing congested airways and inflammation. When put into a nebulizing diffuser, eucalyptus essential oil can help to break up this congestion, making it easier to expel from the body.
  1. Revitalizes and Energizes

    Few things are worse than waking up with a tiredness you can’t shake. It follows you throughout your day, it can make normally easy everyday tasks difficult, and it can even make it difficult to fall back to sleep when bedtime comes again. Eucalyptus essential oil is a stimulant that removes this exhaustion and sluggishness using a soothing, fresh, and cooling scent.
  1. Soothes Muscle Pain

    If you’re experiencing muscle pain after a rigorous workout, or you experience chronic soreness, eucalyptus essential oil can also work to alleviate muscle pain. The natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory, when diffused, can work with the body to soothe pain and lower the swelling that causes your body to feel sore for any reason.
  1. Treating Skin Infections

    The antiseptic properties of eucalyptus essential oil makes it a great addition to your skincare regiment. Infections and acne breakouts caused by bacteria and fungi can be difficult to treat even with powerful synthetic medications, but eucalyptus has been shown to be very effective. Not only for breakouts, eucalyptus essential oil made an excellent addition to any first aid kit.

    Eucalyptus Essential Oil Benefits For the Home

    1. Helps Stop Lice Infestations

    Lice is an unfortunate rite of passage for many young children and for families of young children, dealing with bouts of lice can be a nightmare. Not only do lice spread on the scalp, they also live on surfaces to spread to other members of the family. Eucalyptus is a natural pesticide that is no friend of lice or their eggs.
    1. Natural Bug Repellent

    It’s not only lice that don’t take a liking to eucalyptus essential oils, most insects have a natural aversion to the oil. Rather than using harsh bug sprays filled with harmful chemicals, eucalyptus essential oil can work to keep those bugs at bay. When used in a nebulizing diffuser, it can help to keep insects from making your home into theirs.
    1. Air Purification

    Humans spend about 90% of their time indoors, and most of this indoor time is spent in their own homes. What this means is that you spend much of your life breathing indoor air, and while you may not see or smell any pollutants, it doesn’t mean they’re not there. When diffused, eucalyptus essential oil can help to defeat the microbes and fungi that floats through your indoor air, leaving you with the pure air your body really needs.
    1. Natural Household Cleanser

    Eucalyptus essential oil also works as an effective and fresh natural household cleaner. When mixed with a bit of white vinegar, it can be used to clean and disinfect all surfaces within the home, especially bathrooms. For families who are looking for an alternative to harsh cleansers, eucalyptus essential oil presents a safe, fresh, effective, and natural alternative.

    I like the idea of using eucalyptus oil as an insect repellent. I don’t use the sprays anymore, because I know they’re toxic.

    I sprinkle it over my pyjama top as I have bad hayfever. It just helps taking in deeper breaths.

    I have used eucalyptus essential oil in the past but it is very strong smelling and gave me a headache. It reminded me of Vick’s.
