The eucalyptus tree, although found around the world today, is originally native to Australia. The beautiful green leaves are a staple to a koala’s diet but also have powerful benefits for humans when extracted as an oil.
The eucalyptus globulus oil is known to have anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. This makes it a powerful natural cleaner for your home and can be diffused to help purify air and bring a fresh aroma.
For the respiratory tract, eucalyptus oil is a popular home remedy. It has a cooling and deodorizing effect on the body, which eases fevers and migraines. It has also been known to help with coughs, asthma, throat infections, sinusitis and catarrhal conditions. This powerful oil soothes inflammation and eases mucus, clearing the head from the stuffiness of colds and hay fever.
