- Relives cough and cold symptoms
With anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, eucalyptus is an effective cold remedy.
Eucalyptus oil is particularly beneficial for a cough because it’s an expectorant. In other words, it detoxifies your body, fighting off the harmful organisms making you sick. It also helps you breathe easier when you’re feeling congested.
2. Relieves pain
Owing to the strong analgesic, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties of the active component eucalyptol, this oil is extensively used for providing relief from pain and inflammation in case of arthritis and joint pain.
Eucalyptus Oil is known to moisturise the skin. Not only does it deliver an intense dose of hydration, but it also locks in moisture to help your complexion glow.
4. Desinfects wounds
The Australian aborigines used eucalyptus leaves to treat wounds and prevent infection. Today the diluted oil may still be used on the skin to fight inflammation and promote healing.
5. Removes dandruff
The antifungal and antiseptic properties present in Eucalyptus oil works against the formation of dandruff. The yeast-like fungus called Malassezia is the usual cause of dandruff. This oil, along with a suitable carrier oil, could efficiently keep dandruff formation and related issues like itchiness at bay.
6. Freshens breath
Mint isn’t the only weapon against stinky breath. Because of its antibacterial properties, eucalyptus oil can be used to fight the germs that cause unfortunate mouth odor. Some mouthwashes and toothpastes contain the essential oil as an active ingredient.
