Eucalyptus - essential oil of the month

Essential oil of the month


Not the most romantic or spiritual sounding essence, but one of my favourites and always worth keeping in your medicine chest especially at this time of year. 

Eucalyptus is a decongestant so is excellent for chesty coughs and colds which will not clear; its affinity with the green ray of healing opens and clears the chest and lungs. 

It has anti-viral properties and boosts the immune system so has to be a clear choice for the viral infections that seem to plague everyone in the winter.

Eucalyptus also has analgesic properties so very useful for headaches and migraines.
