Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Benefits for you
Aromatherapy - Many aromatherapists use eucalyptus oil for their remedies. The inhalation of the sweet-smelling oil helps relax the body. You can add a few drops of the essential oil to a hot bath. The steam and the aroma will help you calm down.
Relaxes Sore Muscles - Eucalyptus oil can be used in relaxing or therapeutic massages. Just add few drops of this essential oil to coconut or almond oil and apply on skin with a gentle rubbing motion.
Improved Hair Health - Eucalyptus oil improves shine, thickness, and overall health of your hair. However, too much use can actually reduce the shine and result in a greasy scalp. Most experts suggest using eucalyptus oil for the hair an hour or so before bathing, and then using a good shampoo to remove the residue, followed by a good conditioner.
You’ll Need - 50 ml olive oil & 5 ml eucalyptus oil
Mix eucalyptus and olive oil and gently massage this warm oil mixture onto the scalp to stimulate blood flow to the hair roots and comb. Shampoo and condition normally.
Bad breath - Add to toothbrush: Simply add a drop of eucalyptus essential oil onto your toothbrush before brushing.
A study published in the Journal of Dental Research stated that, "eucalyptol typically acts as an antiseptic only when mixed with other extracts, like menthol."
Natural sunscreen - Eucalyptus oil has a natural SPF 3, and when combined with olive oil with SPF 8 it can make a natural moisturizing sunscreen.
Chemical-free moisturizer - Mix 3-5 drops of eucalyptus oil with 1 tablespoon jojoba oil olive oil or sweet almond oil and massage into the skin. This helps to rejuvenate and soften the skin. Great if you have dry, itchy skin!
Acne blemishes: Mix 1 drop eucalyptus essential oil with 3 drops of water. Soak a cotton swab in the blend and apply liberally to pimples and oily areas of the face. Make sure the solution does not get in the eyes, mouth or nose. Leave overnight for optimum results.
