Eucalyptus Essential Oil – Top Ten Uses

Welcome to another of Organica J’s Top Ten Uses! This month we will be focusing on 10 helpful uses for Eucalyptus essential oil.  Its one of the oils that we use in our Muscle Rub, along with Rosemary and Black Pepper – utilising Eucalyptus’ analgesic properties.  Working as a clinical aromatherapist, I use eucalyptus often in blends for clients.  The essential oil is often first thought of for respiratory issues, and its great action on muscular aches and pains is often overlooked.  For a cold it is what I reach for first in a blend for steam inhalation to use the anti-viral properties, decongestant and to help ease difficult breathing that is often present when you have a cold.   Here are what I think are its top ten uses.

There are many varieties of Eucalyptus that can be used in aromatherapy – the Eucalyptus that I use is Eucalyptus Blue Gum, latin name eucalyptus globulus.  Eucalyptus is indigenous to Australia and the oil is steam distilled from the leaves.  There are other countries that produce the oil, i.e. China, Spain and Portugal.   My current supplies are from China.

If you feel that Eucalyptus essential oil would be a useful oil for you, you can buy it here from Organica J.  There is also available a full range of other aromatherapy essential oils, with information on their uses available in the essential oil category on the website.  Always use on the body blended with a carrier/vegetable oil.

Frankincense’s  latin name is boswellia carterii and is a natural resin from the exudate of the bark of the boswellia tree.  The frankincense oil is steam distilled from the resin.   Frankincense is sometimes referred to as olibanum, meaning oil from Lebanon.  It has been used for centuries often as an incense in religious ceremonies.  Kohl used as eyeliner by the ancient Egyptians was made from charred frankincense. My current batch comes from Somalia, which is my favourite Frankincense.   In my opinion it has a delicate, deep scent, slightly musky in the most pleasant way.

If you feel that Frankincense essential oil would be a useful oil for you, you can buy it here from Organica J.  There is also available a full range of other aromatherapy essential oils, with information on their uses available in the essential oil category on the website.  Always use on the body blended with a carrier/vegetable oil.
