Eucalyptus essential oil, distilled from the Eucalyptus Globulus tree native to Australia, has a long list of traditional uses. Australian aborigines already used it to heal wounds, cure fungal infections, as an effective fever reducer and also as an expectorant.

1. Nasal decongestant

To combat nasal dryness and decongest the nose, you can add 10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil to a container of hot water, cover your head with a towel and inhale the resulting steam. In a few minutes, we will notice relief.

To combat nighttime discomfort due to nasal dryness and get better rest, we can impregnate a gauze with a few drops of this essential oil and put it on the nightstand, next to the head of the bed.

Another solution is to dilute a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil in a carrier oil (almond oil, jojoba, avocado…) and massage the chest to relieve respiratory congestion and other symptoms.


2. Eucalyptol

The active ingredient in eucalyptus essential oil also helps reduce cough.

Fuming is an effective method of thinning mucus and helping to expel it from the body.

Rubbing eucalyptus essential oil, previously diluted in another oil, on the chest also helps us with this purpose.

3. Household disinfectant.

In addition to its fresh aroma, eucalyptus oil has important antibacterial properties.

A good idea is to add a few drops to our usual cleaning products to take advantage of its extraordinary properties as a disinfectant.

4. Tooth cleaner.

The antibacterial action of eucalyptus oil is perfect for eliminating germs in the mouth, reducing plaque, and fighting gum disorders.


A couple of drops diluted in water will serve as a mouthwash and will provide us with fresh breath, (always being careful not to ingest it).

We can also encourage ourselves and make our homemade toothpaste using ingredients that we have at our fingertips and eucalyptus oil. The recipe is as follows :

•6 tablespoons of coconut oil


•6 tablespoons of baking soda

•25 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

•1 tablespoon of stevia powder


Mix all the ingredients in a container until you get a creamy texture and store them in a glass jar. Keep in mind that some essential oils can be toxic if ingested, so this toothpaste would not be recommended for children.

5. Soothes tired or sore muscles.

A massage with coconut oil, almonds, and avocado… in which we have diluted a few drops of eucalyptus oil will relieve the discomfort of muscles aching from excessive exercise.

6. Take care of the hair and scalp.

A few drops of eucalyptus oil mixed with coconut oil will provide hydration to the hair and also to the scalp with dandruff problems and irritation due to excessive dryness, reducing discomfort and itching.

Also, its antibacterial and fungicidal properties will help us fight lice.

7. Insect repellent.

And it’s free of potentially dangerous chemicals found in commercial insecticides, like DEET. Insects do not like intense smells, and among the most effective essential oils, apart from eucalyptus oil, citronella, cedar, rosemary, tea tree, bergamot, and mint oil stand out…

8. Fever

In case of fever, a gauze soaked in water and a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil applied to the forehead, ankles, and armpits can relieve discomfort.


9. Antiseptic for small wounds.

The antibacterial and antiseptic qualities of eucalyptus oil make it an effective treatment for minor wounds, cuts, burns, and insect bites.

In addition to healing the injury, it acts as an analgesic, calming the pain and discomfort in the area. Eucalyptus oil should always be used diluted in a carrier oil, it should never be applied directly to the skin, as it could irritate it.

10. Aromatherapy.

Eucalyptus essential oil provides us with a wonderful experience of the benefits of aromatherapy.

Eucalyptus is a refreshing and very stimulating oil.

This oil is ideal to enhance concentration and maintain energy levels

On cloudy or gloomy days, it is convenient to use this oil in a diffuser or leave the gauze in the rooms with a few drops of the oil to clear our minds and lift our spirits.
