Enhancing mental balance and well-being, the fresh, clean, and woodsy scent of eucalyptus essential oil will make you feel as though you’re out in the deep forest breathing natural air. The great eucalyptus offers applications in bug repellant, warding off infections, supporting the healing of wounds, and strengthening the respiratory system.
The oil also offers effective immune strengthening properties and is fabulous during the cold and flu season. Together with peppermint, rosemary, pine, myrrh, and frankincense, eucalyptus fortifies this Respiratory Blend with its expectorant properties and its immune supportive nature.
All of the oils used in this blend complement each other because they create a beautiful synergy of anti-inflammatory expectorant, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. This helps to combat respiratory infections, reduce mucus, and relieve coughing. It is wonderful as well for respiratory conditions such as asthma.
I am including an infographic from Positive Health & Wellness on using essential oils for a sore throat. Enjoy!
