1. Sprains & Arthritis

If you are experiencing joint and muscle pain, massaging Emu Oil Muscle and Joint Balm (containing eucalyptus oil) 3 – 4 times a day on the surface of the skin helps to relieve pain and inflammation. Eucalyptus oil is analgesic and anti-inflammatory in nature, therefore it is often recommended to patients suffering from rheumatism, lumbago, sprained ligaments and tendons, stiff muscles, aches, fibrosis and even nerve pain to offer relief.

  1. Colds & Flu

Eucalyptus works as an expectorant and helps cleanse your body of toxins and harmful microorganisms that can make you feel sick. One of the most effective ways to utilize eucalyptus for colds and flu is to drop several drops of the essential oil into your diffuser before going to sleep so you can take advantage of the healing benefits all night long.

For more acute situations, you can make a steam bath by pouring a cup of boiling water into a bowl, and then mix 1 level teaspoon of Emu Oil Muscle and Joint Balm (containing eucalyptus oil), place a towel over your head and inhale deeply for 5–10 minutes.  To eliminate any discomfort to the eyes, keep them closed during inhalation.

  1. Natural Remedy for lice

Due to its well-known qualities as a bug repellent and natural pesticide, it is frequently used as a natural treatment of lice. Some of the mainstream treatments of lice can be very severe and damaging to the hair, as well as packed with dangerous chemicals that you don’t want being absorbed into your skin.  For a natural alternative, add 3ml of eucalyptus oil to 30ml of Ultra Mild Shampoo or Baby Shampoo and Wash, shampoo hair and cover with a plastic shower cap for approximately 10 minutes. Remove the shower cap, rinse hair and towel dry. Comb hair with a fine tooth (nit) comb to help remove eggs. Repeat as often as required.

  1. Sinus and Allergies

A study from NYU Medical School found that using eucalyptus was effective at treating sinusitis.

The study had participants take eucalyptus oil internally, and it’s also recommended to gargle with it to clear the throat.  If taking eucalyptus oil internally please check with your Health Care Professional to obtain correct dosages.
