Historical and Traditional Uses
Eucalyptus oil has been traditionally used by Indigenous Australians for thousands of years for; cough, cold, flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, pneumonia, sore throats, asthma, ear infections, cold sores and for its general antiseptic properties. Traditionally Fir/ Pine Needle was used in the Northern Hemisphere for very similar purposes.
In Chinese Traditional Medicine Eucalyptus it was considered to reduce too much wind- heat and lung phlegm and tone the Chi while improving breathing, promoting the uptake of oxygen by the red blood cells, reducing the body’s viral infection levels and boosting white blood cell production to fight infection.
