|Eucalyptus Eucalyptus radiata|
Calm and Stress
Although Australia typically comes to mind for its wide variety of Eucalyptus trees they are also native to Africa and the southern United States. For essential oils the preferred variety is Eucalyptus radiata. DōTerra Eucalyptus is Eucalyptus Radiata grown in Australia with the oil being extracted from the leaves of the tree. Eucalyptus has long been know by herbal practioners for its insect repellant properties and associated maladies such as fevers and respiratory conditions. Beyond this the antibacterial and antiviral properties make it beneficial in not only treating symptoms but underlying causes as well. As with many oils it can blend with others and the resulting fragrance can add a sense of calming aand well-being which adds a bonus in any health issue.
Difussing Eucalyptus will benefit respiratory problems and will also help disinfect a living area preventing the spread of bacterial or viral agents to others. For individual respiratory conditions or coughs inhaling the oil directly or breathing vapors from a cup of warm water with a few drops added is usually beneficial. Also an prepared ointment or dilution with a carrier can be applied topically to the chest or throat area. .Apply Eucalyptus to the chest easing congestion and alleviating persistent cough.
