The great benefits of Eucalyptus

The great benefits of Eucalyptus

I am a big believer in essential oils. My mom raised me on them and they have amazing benefits. One of my favourite essential oil is eucalyptus. Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Greek, and other European styles of medicine have incorporated it into the treatment of a range of conditions for thousands of years. I use it in diffuser all over my house as well as on my pulse points especially when I feel congested. Eucalyptus features in a range of preparations to relieve symptoms of the common cold, for example, cough lozenges and inhalants.

I have heard of placing fresh eucalyptus in your shower and figured I’ll try it out myself. Let me tell you .. it’s amazing!! I wish I’ve done this sooner. 

The steam of the shower releases the essential oils of the eucalyptus plant, which can clear nasal congestion and inflammation related to sinus and bronchial infections.

So there’s not only great benefits related to eucalyptus , it also makes your shower look greener and gives it an ever calming sent to it.
