Eucalyptus Australiana Essential Oil – Uses, Recipes & More

Eucalytpus Essential Oil - First Aid, Cleanser & Sinus HelperEucalyptus Australiana – We love this Eucalyptus oil.

With over 700 eucalypts to choose from, Eucalyptus Australiana (eucalyptus radiatia) is one of the gentlest yet most effective eucalyptus oils available.
It has a softer scent than Eucalyptus globulous which can be quite overpowering and camphorous. . Being softer, this oil is wonderful for all the family from babe to frail aged and everyone in between.

Helps with Respiratory Conditions

Eucalyptus oil can be helpful with respiratory conditions like bouts of flu, cold and sinus conditions.

Just place 4 or 5 drops into your ultrasonic diffuser or oil burner in your living spaces during the day or in your bedroom before going to sleep at night.

(I wouldn’t recommend going to sleep with a candle powered oil burner as it is always unwise to leave a candle unwatched.  For this reason I always recommend one of the electric vaporisers/diffusers for use in the bedroom.)

Great Gum and Spot Remover

A little Eucalyptus on a cloth will easily remove the gummy residue from pricing and other stickers.  It’s also fantastic for helping to remove oil stains from clothes.  Of course it is always best to test first on an inconspicuous area of the garment to make sure the eucalyptus oil won’t react with the material.

Fantastic Hand Cleaner

Just mix h a tablespoon of grated soap, 1/2 cup of table salt, 1 tablespoon cooking oil and 10 drops of eucalyptus oil.  Place in a jar and use a little on greasy, dirty hands as needed.  Just scrub hands with a little of the mixture working it into the and dirt.  Rinse the dirt and salt away with water. Voila! Clean hands.
