Those having a bout with dandruff should try ridding the problem with this oil. All you need to do is put several drops of it into your shampoo and massage it into your hair.
Due to its fast-acting nature and pleasant aroma, it makes a perfect air freshener. Not only will you get the soft, earthy smell of Eucalyptus through your house, but this product also kills germs and bacteria.
How to Use
Before we get into how to use this oil, bear in mind that you need to be careful with the quantity you use. This is especially true when using Eucalyptus as a massage oil because too much can irritate the skin. With this being the case, only mix several drops of the oil with massage oils before using.
The same rules apply when using Eucalyptus oils to treat wounds and bee stings; you shouldn’t use any more than a few drops on the dressing you put on the wound. Overusing it could cause the wound to get worse, and even make the afflicted person nauseous or sick.
When gargling it, it’s highly recommended that you avoid swallowing the oil afterward. Instead, simply mix a few drops of the oil into warm water, gargle the solution, then spit it out into the sink. As a good rule of thumb, you should never swallow any essential oil unless a licensed/reputable doctor instructs you to do so (which probably won’t happen).
It is okay to inhale Eucalyptus oils when treating respiratory problems, but again, the key is to do this in moderation. A couple of small drops on a cloth should do the trick without making you feel bad afterward.
You can also combine it with other essential oils such as rosemary, cedar wood and lavender.
How to Buy
Eucalyptus oil is one of the more popular essential oils, so you shouldn’t have a whole lot of trouble finding it. Most chain stores sell 5 oz., 12 oz. and 16 oz. bottles of this product, while you can also find it online. In many cases, it’s best to shop online because you can often find better deals over the internet.
Of course, you need to make sure that you’re buying it from a trusted source because there are some companies that sell low quality products. Some of the lesser products don’t have an odor and/or will be darker in appearance (remember, the color should be clear or pale yellow).
Now this isn’t to scare you off from buying it online because you can get all of its amazing benefits at a fraction of the cost over the internet. Instead, you just need to be careful when buying this product so that you don’t get ripped off. Assuming you get good quality product, you will be able to enjoy its ability to soothe aching muscles, heal wounds, alleviate respiratory problems and make your house smell better!
