Eucalyptus is a genus of floral trees that came from Australia and now grow in many different parts of the world. It was originally used to aromatize homes, shops, hotels, and other establishments. However, people later found out of the benefits of eucalyptus and that it is one of the most powerful forms of natural medicine to exist.
It keeps the respiratory track in optimum conditions
Among all the benefits of eucalyptus, this one is probably the most popular and important. Eucalyptus is the best plant to use in the treatment of colds, flues, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and tuberculosis, sinuses, and allergies. This is because eucalyptus is a powerful expectorant that detoxifies your body and kills bacteria that make you sick.
The best to use eucalyptus for this purpose is to mix it with coconut oil and peppermint oil and rub over your chest. You can also put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in a cup of boiling water and place a towel in your forehead while inhaling the steam for 10 minutes. This will dilate the blood vessels and allow more oxygen into the lungs.
It has anti-bacterial properties
Eucalyptus has anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties that make it a really strong and natural disinfectant. When combined with sea salt and Epsom salt, eucalyptus becomes a hand cleanser that removes grease and dirt and rejuvenates sore hands and feet. You can also use it to remove spots and stains from your carpet and clothes.
The other benefits of eucalyptus having these properties are that it heals wounds, burns, cuts, abrasions, sores and scrapes and it prevents them from getting infected. Eucalyptus is also a natural pain reliever and can be made into an ointment. If you apply it to bug bites, such as bee stings, eucalyptus will speed up the healing process.
If you enjoy having your home smelling nice and fresh, you definitely will enjoy eucalyptus. Put a few drops of eucalyptus oil to everything, from your mop water and detergent, to your laundry. It will not only smell amazing, it will kill bacteria all over your house without the use of chemical products.
To get rid of bad odors, remove mold, and clean the air of your home, put add eucalyptus oil to the water you use to clean shoes or dog beds. You may apply it directly to your vacuum or clothes dryer filters for a better effect.
