Historical and Traditional Uses

Fir Needle and Eucalyptus Essential Oil were commonly applied for; cough, cold, flu, bronchitis, sinusitis, viral and bacterial infections. They are considered some of the best oils for the whole breathing system and effective at removing congestion. Acting as an analgesic, they were also used reduce pain and inflammation while increasing circulation. Both oils are reported to stimulate white blood cell production. It is your white blood cells that fight an infection.

Fir Needle Oil was also considered a tonic for the nervous system, kidneys and lungs. It was always used as part of any convalescence or after an illness where the person is left weak. Traditional Chinese Medicine considered it warming, drying and tones the Chi.

Traditionally used by Indigenous Australians for thousands of years Eucalyptus Essential Oil is best known for its ability to loosen and expel mucus. When the respiratory tract has a cough or cold the nasal, bronchia’s and lungs become constricted, making breathing more difficult. Research does indicate that inhalations of Eucalyptus Oil can markedly improve breathing and function. Because of its antibacterial antiviral nature it may also reduce the infection causing the problems. Used to reduce the symptoms of cold sores and genital herpes it is reputed to have a strong affect on strains of Streptococcus.

In Traditional Chinese and European Traditional Medicine Eucalyptus was employed to clear too much wind- heat and lung phlegm. It was considered to tone the Chi and improve breathing whilst promoting the uptake of oxygen by the red blood cells.

Wintergreen consists mainly of methyl salicylate. Salicylates suppress the body’s production of prostaglandins, which is an important aspect of pain and inflammation management. Menthol was included in breathing formulas to act as a local anaesthetic, relieve pain and improve the bodies own healing powers by boosting circulation. Unfortunately the majority of commercially available menthol is synthetic – Rare Earth Oils uses only 100% natural organic menthol extracted from peppermint leaves.

Safety Data

The methyl salicylates interfere with blood thinning medication. Always consult your physician if you are on medication or suffer from a health condition or allergy before using a product.
