How to use Eucalyptus Globulus
Eucalyptus Globulus can be used to support the respiratory system, circulatory system, and is used in many skin products. For centuries, Austrailian Aborigines used the disinfecting leaves to cover wounds. Shown by laboratory tests to be a powerful antimicrobial agent, Eucalyptus globulus contains a high percentage of eucalyptol.
Eucalyptol is a natural organic compound which is a colorless liquid. It is a cyclic ether and a monoterpenoid. Eucalyptol is an ingredient in many brands of mouthwash and cough suppressant. It controls airway mucus hypersecretion and asthma via anti-inflammatory cytokine inhibition. Eucalyptol is an effective treatment for nonpurulent rhinosinusitis. Eucalyptol reduces inflammation and pain when applied topically.
How do I use Eucalyptus Globulus?
Dilute 1 part essential oil with 1 part V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex or other pure vegetable oil. Then;
- Apply 2-4 drops on location
- Apply on Chakras and/or Vita Flex points
- Inhale directly
This essential oil is safe to use 1 drop neat (or diluted 1:1) on the bottom of the feet of people ages 6 and up. Use proper dilution on children and babies or highly sensitive skin.
Diffuse up to 1 hour three times daily. Eucalyptus Globulus has an earthy, fresh aroma when diffused.
Caution: Do not use on children under 6. Use with caution and with dilution on children 6-12 years old.
I use Eucalyptus Globulus for respiratory support. I love making an all natural vapor rub instead of buying one that is full of chemicals. Eucalyptus Globulus and Lavender have quickly become a my go to diffuser blend when I’m in need of some respiratory support.
