This time of year, many of us get at least one bout of congestion or a cough (or both at the same time!). And with the holidays coming up, no one has time to get sick with all the festivities and gatherings with family and friends! Eucalyptus has been used for years and years to relieve both coughing and congestion with much success. Just one little whiff can clear your sinuses!
Here are a few ways that you can use Eucalyptus to keep yourself healthy this season:
Use an Aromatherapy Diffuser
Diffusers are a great way to get essential oils like Eucalyptus in the air of your home to reap all their benefits. Just fill up the tank with water, spritz some Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist into the water, and start diffusing. Keep it running while you go about your day and then keep it by your bed to run at night when congestion and coughs seem to get worse.
Make a natural chest rub
A great way to relieve coughs and congestion is to make a natural chest rub. This is easy AND effective. Just melt down two tablespoons of shea butter in a double boiler, remove from heat, add 12 drops of Eucalyptus Oil and 12 drops of Lavender Oil, stir together, and carefully transfer to a container with a tight-fitting lid, and wait for it to set. Use this chest rub at night and your sinuses will thank you!
Take a therapeutic shower
Moisture and humidity are very helpful when it comes to coughs and congestion. Run a steamy-hot shower and use any of our ShowerMists to turn a simple shower into a healing and relaxing experience. Before bed, try our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist to make sure you get all the benefits of Eucalyptus (decongestant, antibacterial, antiviral, etc.) while also getting all the benefits of Lavender to help you sleep better at night. When you get up in the morning, use our Citrus-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist to make sure you are invigorated and ready to take on the day!
Having a cold and being congested isn’t fun, but these natural solutions will help you feel better in no time.
The holidays are right around the corner and that means it’s time to start thinking about gift-giving if you haven’t already! We all have people on our lists that are hard to buy for – either because they haven’t given you any ideas, already have everything they need or are just plain picky. One unique and timeless gift that most everyone could use a little more, but probably wouldn’t ask for, is aromatherapy.
By giving the people in your life products that don’t just smell nice, but have actual health benefits, you’re showing them that you really care about them and their well-being. There are not many better ways to say “I love you” than that!
Here are a few of our favorite products that have aromatherapy benefits that are great for gifting this holiday season:
Fragrance Warmer & Menthol Crystal Set
Our Menthol Crystals are colorless and clear, and a natural byproduct of steam-distilled peppermint essential oil. Peppermint is the perfect home remedy for nausea, headaches, and stress, but can also be used a just an everyday pick-me-up when your brain is feeling foggy. Peppermint stimulates the mind and increases focus. We could all use a little bit more of that, right?
Our Fragrance Warmer is not only easy to use but also beautiful. The soft light really sets the mood in a room and you can also use it for wax melts too, if you have them. These two products combined are a game-changer and a perfect gift set!
Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil Yoga Mat Cleaner
The yogi in your life will love this yoga mat cleaner. It’s something that they probably wouldn’t have thought to ask for, but really need! This Eucalyptus-based cleaner utilizes plant-based oils and enzymatic action to remove makeup, perspiration, dirt, and body oils from yoga mats without compromising the non-slip surface.
The Lavender scent has a calming effect, which is perfect for a yoga practice and Eucalyptus is antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, and exhilarating. It’s great all around!
GIve the gift of an aromatherapeutic steam room this holiday season! Our ShowerMists are a great self-care tool and also have amazing health benefits. They turn a regular shower into an experience when they are spritzed into the steam from a hot shower.
There are several varieties to choose from, depending on what kind of benefits the person you are buying for wants, including citrus-infused, menthol-infused, lavender-infused, and more. If you aren’t sure, might as well buy a couple different kinds to be safe.
If you still aren’t sure what to choose, grab a gift card and let your loved one shop for themselves!
Are you giving the gift of aromatherapy this season?
Winter is a wonderful time of year. The air feels crisp, the holiday season is around the corner, and (depending on where you live) you might even have a beautiful blanket of snow outside! One downside of the winter season, though, is that cold and flu viruses are being passed around like wildfire. As a spa owner/operator, you can be proactive against these germs by diffusing eucalyptus oil in your steam room or sauna. Not only will the refreshing scent be pleasing to your clients, but they’ll love the benefits too.
Here are just a few reasons why you should diffuse eucalyptus oil in your steam room this winter:
It is antiseptic, antibacterial, and antiviral
Cold and flu season is a great time to diffuse eucalyptus because of its healing properties. In a season where it feels like everyone is sick (or at least has the sniffles), eucalyptus can help prevent sickness as well as help those who have fallen under the weather.
It helps get rid of sinus inflammation
Congestion is a thing of the past when using eucalyptus! Combined with the moisture of the steam room, eucalyptus is a powerhouse when it comes to sinus congestion. It is proven to decongest and reduce inflammation. Try our Menthol-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist for a clean, crisp, and minty steam room experience, while also getting all the health benefits.
It is refreshing and energizing
The scent of eucalyptus is variously described as woody-sweet, cooling, refreshing, energizing, fresh, pleasing and revitalizing. In a time of year where many people feel cooped up and tend to have low energy, using a scent that feels refreshing can make your guests feel the same way!
Eucalyptus is a hardworking plant, that’s for certain. We especially love eucalyptus for its natural antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, exhilarating, decongestant, and expectorant properties. You can fall in love with eucalyptus, too! Try our aromatherapy diffuser set, our invigorating 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, or our 100% pure eucalyptus oil today!
Eucalyptus has long been praised for its antibacterial, antiseptic, and aromatherapeutic properties. Did you know it’s one of the most beloved plants and oils around the world? Eucalyptus isn’t just a plant that is used here in the United States where EuroSpa Aromatics is located, but virtually everywhere. It’s a popular plant, to say the least!
Here are some of the ways that eucalyptus is used on different continents around the world:
Eucalyptus in Australia
There are more than 700 species of eucalyptus and most of them are native to Australia. These species range in size from small plants to towering trees! Australian aboriginal populations are the first to discover amazing the health benefits of eucalyptus.
Eucalyptus oil is harvested for medicinal purposes or use in aromatherapy, the tree’s bark is used to make paper, and the wood is used for timber. It’s quite the well-rounded plant!
Eucalyptus in Asia
Eucalyptus seeds were first imported to the continent of Asia in the 1860s. Because the eucalyptus tree grows quickly, it is often grown in plantations and used to replace more endangered trees when making furniture, homes, or fuelwood. The leaves can also be used to dye silk.
Eucalyptus trees are commonly grown in Asia to be used for wind protection and shade for other species of plants and crops.
Eucalyptus in Europe
In Italy, eucalyptus trees are used as windbreaks and are well-known for producing aromatic, unique honey. The trees thrive in the southern Italian climate, so they are a very common sight in that area. In Greece, eucalyptus trees are plentiful and their oil is used in many pharmaceutical products and in leather production.
Eucalyptus is a hardworking plant, that’s for certain. We especially love eucalyptus for its natural antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, exhilarating, decongestant, and expectorant properties. You can fall in love with eucalyptus, too! Try our aromatherapy diffuser set, our invigorating 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, or one of our infusions today!
Are you a long-time eucalyptus fan?
What’s your favorite use for it?
The health benefits of Eucalyptus Oil are incredible and varied. This oil can (and should!) be used all year round, but many of its properties are especially useful and necessary during the fall season when the kids are back in school, the weather starts to change, and the inevitable cold and flu season begins.
Today we’re sharing three reasons why fall is the best time to use Eucalyptus Oil.
Treating Seasonal Allergies
As soon as the seasons begin to change, many people deal with bouts of seasonal allergies that don’t seem to go away no matter what they try to do to beat them.
One of the worst parts of seasonal allergies is the sinus congestion. Taking a long, hot, steamy shower can help get some relief, but adding a spritz of our Eucalyptus ShowerMist will clear your inflamed airways and help you to breathe a little easier. You can also add a few drops of 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil to your chest for all-day relief.
Preventing Cold & Flu
Cold and flu season is inevitable no matter where you live, but you can take steps to prevent you and your family from being downed by sickness.
Eucalyptus Oil is effective for treating a number of respiratory problems including cough, cold, runny nose, sore throat, nasal congestion, bronchitis, and sinusitis because it is antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant in nature. Not only will it help you if you already have a cold, but if you’re using our Eucalyptus ShowerMist regularly, you can better avoid sickness altogether.
Beating Back to School Germs
It may be exciting to have the kids back in school and therefore back in a regular routine, but it’s not exciting that they are exposed to more germs and carry those germs home with them. Not fun at all – especially in this season that is usually very busy for most families!
One easy and cost-effective way to keep your house clean during this germy time of year is to fill a spray bottle with distilled white vinegar and add a few drops of Eucalyptus Oil and use it for cleaning windows, sinks, toilets, you name it!
The vinegar cuts through grease and kills bacteria, yeast, and mold. The Eucalyptus Oil not only smells fresh and clean but is antibacterial and antifungal.
