Eucalyptus essential oil has a refreshing camphorous odour. The oil is obtained from the leaves and twigs of this particular eucalyptus tree.
Eucalyptus oil is ideal to keep handy in the winter months, when family members succumb to winter chills and blocked noses. It can also be blended with Cedarwood or Citronella Oil in an oil burner for a natural insect repellent when enjoying the outdoors of an evening.
For a blocked nose, add 2 drops Eucalyptus, 1 drop Roman Chamomile and 1 drop Lavender to a bowl of just-boiled water. Place a towel over your head and gently inhale the steam.
