Anyone who’s caught a winter cold or cough knows the agony: weeks of hacking and sneezing and generally feeling not right. Fatigue, stuffiness, just… blah.
It can get to the point where when you do find something that offers relief, it can feel, well, orgasmic. Enter eucalyptus essential oil.
Eucalyptus essential oil is a natural germicide. Its woodsy scent was made for clearing clogged sinuses and relieving nasty coughs. And as a bonus, it’s a natural cold remedy — no pharmaceuticals or potentially chemical compounds needed. Eucalyputus oil shouldn’t be taken orally, but there are plenty of other ways to reap the benefits.
- Breathe It In
To relieve a stuffed nose, use several drops of eucalyptus oil in a diffuser, put some in a bowl of hot water, a hot bath, or even in a vaporizer.
- Prevent Airborne Infection
One of the worst parts of catching a cold or cough is how quickly it can spread to friends and family. While you might feel better in a week, it can take much longer for the viral infection to work its way through the rest of your family, and that can mean days the kids have to stay home from school, missed work, and generally a lot of hassle that spreads far beyond your initial sickness. Eucalyptus essential oil can help stop the spread. Try putting three drops of eucalyptus oil and three drops of tea tree oil in a diffuser and letting it permeate your whole house.
- Calm a Cough
You can use eucalyptus oil topically, which can bring serious relief to a stubborn chest cough. A chest rub can feel wonderful. You can also put eucalyptus oil on a cloth and inhale the scent close to your nose.
- Relieve an Aching Body.
You know the drill — what starts as a stuffy nose and chest cough can make your whole body hurt, especially if you can’t sleep. The aches and pains on your joints can make the whole thing that much worse. Luckily, eucalyptus oil is to the rescue! Try putting some in the bath and relaxing. Or add some to a carrier oil for a body massage blend.
The next time a cough or cold hits, you don’t have to resort to harsh pharmaceuticals. Try relieving it the natural way with eucalyptus essential oil.
