Tourists in our market stall are always asking which is a typical Australian scent and we always mention Eucalyptus oil.
We love crushing up the leaves and putting them into a hot bath which extracts the oils whilst bathing in goodness.
Eucalyptus essential oil is cooling, refreshing and energising. Lighter in smell than Eucalyptus globulus it contains numerous health benefits.
The oil is relatively gentle and non-irritating. Very much the preferred choice for any type of lung congestion or help with clearing mucus.
For instance, this variety is one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils .
It’s well balanced and not as overpowering as some other varieties.
Most often used in a diffuser and even direct inhalation.
It has long been an ingredient in our most popular blend – Rainforest Mist.
