Botanical Species: Eucalyptus globulus
Eucalyptus is well-known for its clearing and anti-septic properties and is thus extremely useful during winter months. It can be very effective in a steam inhalation to help congestion. Try adding 2 drops Eucalyptus, 1 drop Roman Chamomile and 1 drop Lavender to a bowl of just-boiled water. Lean over the bowl, (not too close) with a towel covering your head and inhale the vapors for a few minutes. Alternatively, blend the same oils in two teaspoons of Sweet Almond oil and massage into the chest and back.
Blended with Citronella or Cedarwood in an oil burner, Eucalyptus can help maintain an insect-free BBQ!
Subtle Aromatherapy: Eucalyptus may be used at a subtle level to cleanse any place where there has been conflict or where negative energies are felt. Eucalyptus is also described as a fragrance of newness and renewal and is recommended for those seeking new horizons.
