As the days get shorter and the colder air moves in, the risk of colds and flu starts to increase. As we find ourselves out in public areas, we start hearing that distinctive cough everywhere we go. For ourselves and our children, that tightness in the chest, that tickle in the back of the throat, the discomfort in the lungs, and the fatigue from lack of sleep can start to take its toll, affecting our work, our attitudes, and our general sense of well-being. Should that happen, try adding Jordan Essentials Eucalyptus Essential Oil to your routine!
JE Eucalyptus Essential Oil is available in a pure essential oil dropper and is a core ingredient in several essential oil blends including Resistance Essential Oil Blend, Immune Essential Oil, Blend, Lemongrass & Eucalyptus Essential Oil Spray, and the Lavender & Eucalyptus Collection.
Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia and there are about 400 different species of eucalyptus that have been classified. Jordan Essentials offers pure, steam distilled essential oils from the leaves of the Eucalyptus globulus tree, also known as Blue Gum.
Eucalyptus leaves have been used for centuries for various health and skin benefits. The leaves of the eucalyptus tree contain flavanoids which are plant-based antioxidants, and tannins which may help reduce inflammation. During World War I, Eucalyptus was widely used to control infections and influenza.
Inhaling the vapor from eucalyptus has been a popular remedy for colds and chest congestion for several hundred years. Modern commercial vapor rubs, cough lozenges, and medications often contain eucalyptus in their ingredients. Eucalyptus Essential Oil can be combined with other JE products to create your own chest rubs, or add it to Magnesium Dead Sea Salt Soak in the shower or bath to help open the airways.
Eucalyptus has been found to be antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant. Recent studies show positive results with pain relief, stimulating the immune system, fungal infections, colds, and respiratory problems. Eucalyptus is also an effective insect repellent.
Safety and Precautions
According to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), Eucalyptus Essential Oil can generally be safely used on skin when it is diluted with a carrier such as an oil or a Jordan Essential Lotion. JE Eucalyptus Essential Oil can also be diffused. Eucalyptus can produce irritation for sensitive skin, so test a small area before applying liberally and never use too close to the eyes. It is also generally recommended to avoid using Eucalyptus on or around cats.
