Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus globulus, acts as an antiseptic, antiviral, bactericidal, decongestant, expectorant, and insecticide. Traditional Aboriginal medicines used eucalyptus to treat fungal infections and skin wounds.
Due to the presence of compounds including cineole and flavonoid antioxidants found in eucalyptus leaves, they have been found to have antibacterial and antiseptic properties.
It is often used for colds, fevers, asthma, laryngitis, and sore throat. Inhaling eucalyptus steam may help bronchitis and asthma. Its aroma aids memory and promotes positive feelings.
We infuse the leaves in organic carrier oils since the leaves are covered with oil glands that contain a number of beneficial compounds.
