Eucalyptus Breakdown

Eucalyptus Radiata

Eucalyptus is a fantastic respiratory support that could be considered one of the most prevalently used and needed oils for the family. It is an expectorant quality oil that is often misunderstood. Because it is so potent it should generally not be used near the face of a child, but the strand of Eucalyptus doTerra uses (Radiata) is more gentle than Eucalyptus Globulus (the more commonly uses strand) and allows for safe dilution on the feet or usage in the diffuser. Historically Eucalyptus has been used safely on children with common sense cautions regarding areas of use and dilution.

Eucalyptus trees are tall, evergreen trees that grow up to 50 feet in height and are sometimes referred to as Gum Trees. The main chemical components of Eucalyptus radiata are eucalyptol and alpha-terpineol, making it an ideal oil to promote feelings of clear breathing and open airways and for creating a soothing massage experience. Eucalyptus has purifying properties that can be beneficial for the skin and for cleansing surfaces and the air. Studies have shown that Eucalyptus is effective in helping lessen tension. Eucalyptus can be found in mouth rinses to freshen breath and promote oral health.

Directions for Use:
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
