Eucalyptus Essential Oil

I have had lots of people with questions about using eucalyptus essential oil. I think it's because it's been so hot and people are drawn to its cooling nature. This is a great and useful oil
that I make sure to have on hand.
The properties are antiseptic, anti-biotic, anti viral, deodorizing, increases circulation, stimulating and cooling.
~A few drops in a bath will cool the body and help bring down a fever.
~Increases concentration and alertness and helps clear the mind
~Insects don't like the scent so it's useful in a diffuser to keep them away.
~the vapors help clear congestion due to colds and is an air purifier
~the brisk scent helps balance the emotions,and is good when you're feeling sluggish or have emotional overload to deal with

Eucalyptus mixes well with lemon balm, lemon verbena, pine, lavender and peppermint. The energy is yang (active, light, heat or dryness) ♥
