For those out there who have muscle pains or arthritis, eucalyptus can be used to loosen those sore muscles. It can also be used to treat lice, control blood sugar levels, reduce fevers, and can even go so far as to relieve the symptoms of tuberculosis and pneumonia.
Eucalyptus can also be used to wake you up mentally. On those days were your head feels completely clouded, take a sniff of eucalyptus oil and your brain will get right back on track (something to keep in your office desk drawer for such occasions).
For my purposes, eucalyptus oil is great for skin care and soap. It's antiseptic and antibacterial properties make it a powerful agent for clearing up skin conditions. Additionally, it is great in soaps because of the deodorant properties as well as the vapor that can rise from the soap in a hot shower to help clear out your congestion. I knew I liked this plant.
Here are some Black Willow Soaps products that have eucalyptus essential oil in them:
|Soothing Earth Avocado Cucumber Soap|
|Patchouli, Eucalyptus, & Sandalwood Olive Oil Soap|
