Eucalyptus Essential Oil
(Eucalyptus Globulus) strong aroma can be used in steam inhalations to relieve cold symptoms, sinus congestion, and mucous coughs. As an antiseptic, it can help with infectious diseases of the respiratory system while its expectorant qualities can help with asthma, bronchitis and tuberculosis. Try it in a diffuser. A few drops in a bath become very effective with all types of fever and lowers the temperature by causing a cooling action upon the body.
