Tourists in our market stall are always asking which is a typical Australian scent to take home 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 its invigorating aroma that really gets the senses going. Eucalyptus essential oil is cooling, refreshing and energising. 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 and is well balanced and not as overpowering as some other varieties.
Most often used in a diffuser and even direct inhalation, its so good for the lungs and as a part of a blend where you need a little kick of camphor for good measure.
It has long been an ingredient in our most popular products;
