Eucalyptus - Aromatheraphy Essentail Oil
(Eucalyptus globules)

EUCALYPTUSEucalyptus is one of the most commonly used essential oils. It is currently used in many allopathic medical preparations. It is one of the three best oils for use with any respiratory tract problem because the component eucalyptol is mucolytic (it relaxes the flow of mucous). It excretes the eucalyptol out through the lung surface. Even if you take it internally in a tea form, eucalyptus will very quickly pass out of the body through the lungs, having its relaxing effect to the mucous membranes. As it is inhaled it gives an immediate effect; then again as it circulates out of the body. It is wonderful for acne because it reduces oil production and dries the tissue. It is thought to increase insulin production and help to balance the blood sugar.

Origin of Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is grown in southern Europe, North Africa and Australia. Only 15 of its many varieties are used to make essential oils.
