Eucalyptus is widely known for it’s menthol properties and it’s ability to bring respiratory comfort, but what’s less known is it’s power to disinfect living areas and to help prevent the spread of colds and flu. With its strong anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, dispursing this oil into the
environment via spray, diffuser or steam, can quickly eliminate these pathogens from your home or office.
Other Benefits of Eucalyptus Oil
Eucaluptus Oil is also beneficial for the symptoms of colds and flu. It is an excellent expectorant, helping to clear congestion; and, it is very soothing to the respiratory system, helping to ease coughs. It works well diffused or inhaled, but can also be applied directly to the chest or throat, either in an ointment or dilution with a carrier oil, such as olive, coconut or jojoba. A few drops of eucalyptus oil can also be added to a cup of warm water, so you can breathe the vapors.
Eucalyptus can also be very helpful for asthma and bronchitis. It is very soothing to the respiratory system, and is quite anti-inflammatory.
Some Medical Research To Consider
One study found that spraying a 2% concentration of eucalyptus oil (mixed with water) into contaminated air was effective at killing 70% of staphylococci bacteria. There have also been numerous studies into the anti-viral properties of eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptol, Eucalyptus radiata‘s primary active constituent, is used in many pharmaceutical preparations, mouthwashes (like Listerine®) and OTC cold and flu remedies; however, a synthetic form is generally used. Yet, studies have found that thenatural form of eucalyptol is more effective.
As you can see, Eucalyptus oil is an investment into your health that should not be neglected. Beneficial for family and business alike, your family and friends deserve an edge to protect and support your health.
