An Australian native, the eucalyptus evergreen tree can be used to create an amazing and beneficial essential oil. Because of the oil’s makeup, it is used in a variety of rubs, inhalers, and mouthwashes. However, eucalyptus essential oil can be beneficial in so many other ways.
This oil can be easily used to aid in the treatment of respiratory problems because it is naturally antifungal, antibacterial and decongestant. A 2004 study by Laryngoscope found that eucalyptus oil was helpful in treating nonbacterial sinusitis.
The fresh and cool oil can also be used as a mental stimulant to counteract mental sluggishness and increase blood flow to the brain. Using the scent in a classroom or office could help learning and focus. The scent also works well to freshen the air when diffused.
