REPORTED THERAPEUTIC PROPERTIES

Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus radiata are very similar and vary only slightly. Radiata is preferred by many aromatherapists for children and the elderly because the aroma is softer and less harsh. The essential oil is also less likely to cause irritation to the skin and mucus membranes, especially when inhaled. All eucalyptus essential ois are antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral, analgesic (pain relieving), decongestant, eases cough, expectorant, aids normal respiration, reduces fevers, insect repellant, nervine (calms and soothes nerves), wound healing.

AROMATHERAPY

Supports normal respiration, eases cough, stimulating, invigorating, refreshing, helps mental concentration, combats negative emotions and relieves mental exhaustion.

PRECAUTIONS:

SPECIFIC

Avoid using eucalyptus with children under age 3, with epilepsy and Parkinson's disease, especially around nose and mouth, due to high 1,8-cineole content. 1,8-cineole may cause seizures, central nervous system problems or respiratory distress in sensitive individuals.

GENERAL

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier oil).
