1. Heals Wounds eucalyptus leaves and oil eucalyptus oil heals body

Eucalyptus oil is an antiseptic. It kills germs and stops infections from forming.

Cleaning a cut, burn, scrape or sore with the oil will not only protect it but also help it to heal faster.

2. Eases Breathing Problems

When you’re healthy, inhaling eucalyptus oil feels great and makes you glad to be alive.

When you’re sick, it can actually help to cure what ails and make you feel better at the same time. The essential oil is used in many medicines used to treat colds, bronchitis, and sinusitis.

It's also helpful in treating asthma and a runny nose. Just put a few drops onto your chest to clear your nasal passages. It can also be mixed with warm water for a gargle to treat a sore throat.

If you suffer from seasonal allergies there are 6 essential oils that can ease your symptoms.

3. Stimulates and Energizes

Breathing in eucalyptus oil has a cool, refreshing effect that can provide a big relief for people who are feeling sluggish.

Its fresh scent is a vasodilator: this means that it relaxes the blood vessels. When blood flows more easily through your body, you have more energy and feel more awake.

Some schools even use eucalyptus oil in the classroom to help kids focus.

4. Stops Aches and Pains

If you’ve had a tough work out or injured yourself, a little eucalyptus oil where it hurts can help a lot. The oil is a natural anti-inflammatory.

For best results, rub it on the area in a circular motion.

Anytime you can fight pain the all-natural way you are doing your body a huge service!

5. Mouthwash eucalyptus oil as mouthwash eucalyptus oil heals body

The same germ fighter that makes eucalyptus oil good for cleaning wounds also makes it good for dental care.

You can make your own mouthwash by mixing it with warm water or look for a natural toothpaste that has the oil in it.

6. Cuts Risk of Diabetes Side Effects

People who have diabetes are often at risk of complications as a result of poor circulation. Eucalyptus oil can help solve this problem.

When you rub the oil onto your skin it makes your blood vessels dilate, helping circulate blood throughout your body.

7. Cools the Skin

Eucalyptus oil has been called “fever oil” for years because it can lower your body temperature.

Whether it’s a hot day, you’re struggling with hot flashes, or you have a fever, spray a little oil on your skin to feel better.

8. Aromatherapy eucalyptus oil heals body
