Eucalyptus has a distinctive aroma that instantly clears the head. Its decongestant effect has been employed in countless cold and cough remedies. It is a powerful antiseptic and is a warming oil for soothing muscular pains. Steam inhalation or a few drops on the pillow at night can relieve cold and 'flu symptoms and help bronchitis. Heating eucalyptus oil in a vapouriser at night will help to make breathing easier and will disinfect the air. Eucalyptus oil can also be applied as a chest rub, provided it is properly diluted with a carrier oil, or as a hot poultice. Eucalyptus helps heal sprains, it may be massaged directly on to the affected area, provided that it is properly diluted with a carrier oil first. A hot bath with a few drops of oil may also be helpful. It is best used on its own, but can be mixed with bay, cedarwood, frankincense, geranium, lemon and sandalwood oils.
