The 21 uses of eucalyptus oil

  1. Have you heard someone talk enthusiastically about Eucalyptus Oil? Certainly, because this miracle oil has been in the spotlight for a few years due to its many applications. It can help with shingles, acne, muscle pain, and help treat minor wounds. it's just too much to mention.

  1. In this article I will explain where the Eucalyptus Oil comes from, how it is made, and of course what the applications are. Read on quick!

What is Eucalyptus Oil?

  1. Eucalyptus oil is an oil extracted from the leaves of the Eucalyptus tree. Although there are more than 600 varieties of Eucalyptus varieties, fewer than 20 varieties are suitable for commercial, large-scale oil production. The others don't have enough oil in the blade.

  1. The most commonly used Eucalyptus for commercial oil production is the Eucalyptus Polybractae, aka the Blue Mallee, and the Eucalyptus Globulus.

  1. Originally the Eucalyptus comes from Australia. About 75% of all trees on that continent are Eucalyptus. So it is no wonder that Australia was the largest producer of this oil for a long time. But other countries got wind of this and imported the seeds to plant their own orchards. Nowadays Eucalyptus Oil is also made in countries such as Swaziland, Chile, Brazil, Spain, Portugal and South Africa. At the moment, China is the world leader. China owns about 75% of the market, but most of the oil that comes from here is not the real Eucalyptus Oil, but is extracted from the leaves of a similar tree.

  1. Every year approximately 3000 tons of eucalyptus oil is produced worldwide. That equates to 3,000,000 kilos!

  2. Every year around 3000 tons of eucalyptus oil is produced worldwide. That equates to 3,000,000 kilos!

  1. I started doing the math: 3,000 tons is roughly equivalent to 300,000,000 bottles of 10 ml.

  1. If you want to buy eucalyptus oil, make sure you buy 100% natural oil, and that it is actually made from Eucalyptus. I would ignore the Chinese varieties, as they are usually based on the leaves of a similar tree, but not of the Eucalyptus.

Drink a cup of tea 3 to 5 times a day, at least when you are an adult. For children, 3 cups a day is the maximum.

  1. Please note that you cannot keep the tea, at least not without losing its strength. So make a fresh cup every time and enjoy!

One of the characteristics of Eucalyptus Oil is the fact that it is very antibacterial. This makes the oil a perfect way to keep your teeth in good condition.

  1. The antibacterial effect and the fresh taste make the Eucalyptus Oil a must for dental care!

  1. You can combat head lice with all kinds of shampoos and other products. But this often contains a lot of chemicals that can have all kinds of side effects, including an uncontrollable itching on your scalp. Not much fun.

  1. But did you know that you can easily control head lice with Eucalyptus Oil? Without any side effects? Eucalyptus Oil is a natural pesticide.

  1. The oil is good for your hair, it cleans and moisturizes your scalp and stimulates hair growth. A great alternative to all those chemicals that are also very expensive.

  1. If you suffer from head lice, mix 3 ml Eucalyptus Oil with 30 ml regular shampoo. Wet your hair and massage the shampoo into your hair. Cover it for 15 minutes with a shower cap, for example, so that the oil can do its job. After fifteen minutes you take off the hat, rinse the shampoo well and dry your hair with a towel. Don't blow dry!

  1. Then comb the hair with a very fine comb to remove all the eggs from the head lice.

  1. If this is not sufficient in one go, you can repeat it for a few days in a row.

  1. Do you ever suffer from an itchy scalp? Even then you can use all kinds of chemical agents, but in most cases that has no effect. You guessed it: Eucalyptus Oil offers the solution here!

  1. Take a large container with 1 liter of water. Add 5 ml Eucalyptus Oil and 50 ml white vinegar. Mix this well and rinse your hair with this. Keep your head over the bowl and rinse several times to make sure the solution gets all over the place. Then just shower, wash hair and conditioner as usual.

  1. Remember there must be a reason for the itching. Take a critical look at the shampoo and conditioner you use. Are there a lot of unpronounceable ingredients in it? Then quickly find a pure shampoo, without all those bells and whistles that only irritate your scalp and your wallet.

  1. It is a fact that Eucalyptus Oil can improve the overall health of your hair. The result is a thicker head of hair and shiny hair. To achieve this, mix 50 ml of warm olive oil with 5 ml of Eucalyptus Oil. Massage this warm solution onto your scalp and let it work for 10 minutes to stimulate blood flow to your hair roots. Then rinse well. Wash your hair with the usual shampoo and then use a good conditioner.

  1. Be careful not to do this too often, otherwise the effect will be counterproductive: Less shine, greasy hair and a greasy scalp.

  1. Everyone reacts differently, so you have to try what is the ideal frequency for you. But in general, once every two weeks is sufficient.

  1. We have already seen in the previous applications that Eucalyptus Oil is excellent for your hair. But the oil can also promote hair growth! The oil is able to give the follicles, the hair follicles, extra stimulation by improving the blood supply and by cleaning. Your hair grows faster and better!

  1. Due to the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect of Eucalyptus Oil, it is also very beneficial in the treatment of shingles. But the natural analgesic effect also helps to relieve the pain. You can use the Eucalyptus Oil with a warm compress, or you can add the oil to a nice warm bath.

  1. If you suffer from sore muscles, a good massage can be the solution. Take massage oil based on Eucalyptus Oil, or take neutral massage oil and add a few drops of Eucalyptus Oil. Massage especially the sore muscles, and let the oil absorb well. So don't jump in the shower immediately after the massage!

  1. Many aromatherapists use Eucalyptus Oil during their treatment. The scent of the oil alone will immediately relax your body. You can also achieve this effect yourself by adding a few drops to your warm bath water. Your body benefits through contact with the water, and you automatically breathe in all the vapors, which also benefits you internally. Complete relaxation guaranteed!

  1. We have already established that Eucalyptus Oil is very effective on small wounds. But that goes a bit further. You can also apply the oil for acne or pimples, herpes rash or chicken pox. To take advantage of this, you can make your own massage oil by mixing apple cider vinegar and Eucalyptus Oil in equal proportions and smearing or dabbing this mixture on the problem areas. Let this soak in well, preferably all night.

A warning!

  1. You can't ignore it: Eucalyptus Oil is an all-rounder, that's a fact now. But I would like to warn you, because there can also be disadvantages to the use of this oil. When used in too strong a solution, or with frequent use, side effects can occur. These can be:

  1. In very extreme cases, the side effects can become more serious, and even life-threatening. Just think about this:

  1. Make sure you always dilute the oil. In addition, you have to be careful with the quantities. Every body reacts differently, so I can't give you solid advice about it. It's a matter of trying and listening carefully to your body. If you experience any of the side effects, stop immediately and adjust the dose downwards. Then slowly build up again to let your body get used to it.

  1. If you don't trust it, I recommend seeking guidance in the form of a professional.

  1. Eucalyptus Oil is not recommended for children under the age of six, and for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

Finally

  1. Eucalyptus oil is a real panacea, that has now become clear. When buying, make sure you buy real oil, and not a weak infusion from another tree. Read the ingredients list and get advice. You can also buy the oil over the internet, but the same advice applies there too: Be sure about what you buy and where you buy it.

  1. I would like to warn you about this, because a lot of fake products are offered over the internet, especially from abroad. So buy preferably at a Dutch web store that is well known.

  1. Do you have any experiences with Eucalyptus Oil? Sharing these experiences, through a comment, is always very much appreciated!
