DAY 06: Eucalyptus Essential Oil

May 06, 2018 1 Comment


Today is Sunday (though it may not be when you are reading this, but the message still applies).

Often our thoughts turn to the week ahead on a Sunday. I can’t be sure, but I would like to take a guess that on your ‘plans for the coming week’ list are things such as appointments, reminders to pay a bill, things to pick up from the grocery store etc. I doubt on your list of things to do is to get sick.

But life happens and even though it may not be an intention, we get sick.

With that in mind I thought I would introduce you to what the book Emotions and Essential Oils refers to as ‘the oil of wellness’.

Can anyone take a guess which oil it might be? is the name of the blog ;)

If you guessed Eucalyptus then high five!


Here are your Eucalyptus essentials: 

Sourced from: Australia

Plant part: leaf / stem

Extraction method: steam distillation


Eucalyptus is a natural:
  • Antiviral
  • Antibacterial
  • Analgesic
  • Disinfectant
  • Expectorant (this is why it can help with your cough!)
  • Hypertensive
  • Insecticide

Here are a few ways to make the most of Eucalyptus’ goodness:
  • Aromatically The main chemical components of dōTERRA’s Eucalyptus Essential Oil are eucalyptol and alpha-terpineol. These components are what make this an ideal oil for promoting feelings of clear breathing and open airways. Diffuse or inhale Eucalyptus Essential Oil from cupped hands to relieve you from symptoms of a cold or respiratory symptoms.
  • Topically Feeling congested? Apply Eucalyptus Essential Oil over your chest and the bridge of your nose. Or if you sense a flu coming on apply to the bottoms of your feet or along your spine (remember application to the bottom of you feet is one of the fastest ways to get the oil into your body’s systems). If you are experiencing a fever or heat sensitivity you can also apply Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oils down the spine for a cooling effect.
  • Around the home Create your own toxic-free spray and wipe to keep your surfaces clean! Mix Eucalyptus Oil with Peppermint and Wild Orange or Lemon Essential Oils with water and white vinegar in a bottle and spray away (please note: do not use a plastic container, glass is ideal)

While you cannot take Eucalyptus internally, mouth rinses containing Eucalyptus have been found to freshen breath and promote oral health.

The oil of wellbeing

Eucalyptus Essential Oil supports individuals to step into wholeness and health, inviting us to take responsibility for our own wellbeing. While we have explored some of the positive ways this oil can support our physical health above I wanted to briefly touch on something I read in Emotions and Essential Oils, A Reference Guide for Emotional Healing, which by the way is one of my go to books at the moment!

Alongside physical support this oil can provide deeper emotional and spiritual wellbeing support. If you are someone with a ‘need’ to be sick or who often experiences poor health this essential oil may encourage you to explore what is going on for you and to let go of any attachments to illness. Please note that it is always recommended to do this sort of inner personal development type work with the support of a healing practitioner.
