Keep reading to learn 6 reasons to use eucalyptus, more about this unique oil and why you definitely want to add it to your collection.

Reason 1: Eucalyptus oil promotes feelings of clear breathing

Because it contains the chemical component eucalyptol, Eucalyptus oil is useful for creating a cooling vapor when applied to the skin or inhaled. It is also an natural expectorant to help relieve the airways of mucus. When the seasons change, you can rub a few drops of Eucalyptus on your chest to promote feelings of open airways. You can also diffuse Eucalyptus oil when you want to promote feelings of clear breathing. I love to put a couple of drops on bottom of my shower for spa like effect as it helps open my airways.

Reason 2: Eucalyptus oil can be used in a soothing massage

Not only are the cooling properties of Eucalyptus incredibly useful for promoting feelings of clear breathing, but they also make this oil great for massage. When you want to ease sore muscles, consider combining a few drops of Eucalyptus with a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil or an unscented lotion. Gently rub the combination on the problem area and enjoy the cooling, soothing effects of Eucalyptus oil. Not only will this massage feel amazing, but the aroma of Eucalyptus will help to clear the mind and calm feelings of tension and stress.

Reason 3: Eucalyptus oil promotes relaxation

If you’ve had a long day, full of worry and stressful feelings, Eucalyptus oil is the perfect oil for you. Diffusing Eucalyptus oil can help create a tranquil atmosphere in your home, while also decreasing feelings of tension and promoting relaxation. Eucalyptus oil is frequently used at spas due to its relaxing aroma and properties. No matter what the day throws at you, Eucalyptus oil helps transport you to a calmer, more relaxed state of being.

Reason 4: Eucalyptus oil can be used as a cleansing agent

When you’re looking for a quick yet powerful way to clean up around the house, Eucalyptus oil is optimal for cleansing surfaces. Combine Eucalyptus with Lemon and Peppermint oil in a spray bottle, and then use the mixture to wipe down surfaces in your kitchen, bathroom, or other common areas of your home. Not only will the essential oil mixture give you peace of mind concerning the nontoxic cleanliness of your home, but you’ll love the wonderful aroma that lingers after you finish.

Reason 5: Eucalyptus oil can help clean and revitalize the skin

With Eucalyptus oil’s powerful cleansing and purifying properties, it’s beneficial for the skin. If your skin feels oily, consider adding a few drops of Eucalyptus to your daily moisturizer or toner to experience the oil’s skin-revitalizing benefits. If you apply a Eucalyptus-infused moisturizer or toner in the morning, you’ll have the added benefit of carrying the uplifting, vitalizing aroma of Eucalyptus with you throughout your day.

Reason 6: Eucalyptus oil can provide support during menstruation

Due to its soothing, calming nature, Eucalyptus is frequently used to provide support during menstruation. Simply massaging Eucalyptus oil into the lower abdomen daily during menstruation can provide the help you need during this time of month.
