Eucalyptus is an expectorant and can help cleanse your body of toxins & harmful micro-organisms. It can be used for a healthy scalp & is often used against lice. It's great for sinusitis issues. It's highly effective for treating respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, pneumonia & even TB. It dialates the blood vessels so it allows more, oxygen into the lungs, which can lead to healing.
It has anti-microbial & antiseptic properties, so it's effective at treating wounds, cuts, bug bites, stings, etc. It also helps because it's a natural pain reliever.
This wonderfully powerful oil also stimulates the immune system & provides antioxidant protection as well. The key ingredient 'cineolo' - an organic compound that has widespread, astounding medicinal effects. It's even been known to help lower blood pressure & kills leukemia cells!
Personally, I love the smell of this and can't seem to get enough of it at times. It is one of THE main ingredients in our popular Quartzsite Krud Kicker at Herbs 4 Health!!!
