Eucalyptus Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Though many people associate Eucalyptus with koala bears, the amazing properties of these leaves when steam distilled into an essential oil will astound you. Prized for its ability to open airways and support respiratory health, Eucalyptus has found a home in many products specifically noted for the lungs. In addition to respiration, it also provides a powerful feeling of relaxation aromatically and can be used in massages or rubs for a double effect of both skin-tingling delight and aromatic release. It is no wonder that Eucalyptus is considered to be a staple oil in any oil collection. (Just be sure to use caution if you have kids under the age of 6 in our house, as the camphor component of Eucalptus could slow breathing in younger children. As always, it is best to discuss its use with your trusted healthcare provider before using it on anyone with a medical condition or children under the age of 6.)

Wintergreen Essential Oil Uses and Benefits

While most people sing the praises of Peppermint essential oil, Wintergreen essential oil packs a powerful array of constituents that can support many of your systems. If you are an athlete or a hardcore workout fanatic, Wintergreen deserves a place in your essential oil repertoire. Not only can it provide you with tingling and deep-penetrating relief from muscle aches, but it can also open up your airways to enable you to have a more intense workout experience. Found in many candies, gums, and mints, Wintergreen has always been popular for oral health, and the essential oil is no stranger to this either. Though it should be avoided during pregnancy and is highly damaging for small children or for anyone if ingested, periodic small uses of Wintergreen can greatly improve your overall wellness. This sweet and minty essential oil complements other oils as well and has a very interesting story about its harvesting process. Join me as we explore Wintergreen!

Diffusing can be accomplished in a number of ways, but all of them allow you and your family to experience the amazing power of aromatherapy with minimal effort. Our olfactory receptors are tuned to pick up nuances of scent, allowing certain systems in our bodies to kick into action and also letting us attach certain memories with scents. The smell of your Grandma’s house at Thanksgiving, the pungent tang of your high school locker room, the sweet floral comfort of your mom’s homemade laundry detergent…they all hold special places in our hearts and minds.
