Guide - Eucalytpus Globulus EO
The Story :
The Eucalyptus Globulus is a very large tree that generally reaches 50 meters high, originating from Australia where it was discovered in the 18th century. It has been used in Aboriginal medicine for a long time to cure all kinds of ailments. When it is notched, it exudes a red resinous gum, which earns it the nickname “Gum tree”.
There is a very large number of species of Eucalyptus, and this one has the particularity of possessing virtues to fight against respiratory diseases.
Its name comes from the Greek “Eu” which means “Good” and “Kalypto”, to cover. This refers to its flowers, which remain partly enclosed after flowering.
Eucalyptus has long been used for its properties to clean up land and especially to dry out swampy areas. This has made it possible to eradicate certain tropical diseases such as Malaria, earning it the nickname “fever tree”.
Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil is used in many pharmaceutical products, including tablets and throat syrups. Eucalyptus leaves were also burned in hospitals and patients’ rooms in the past to clean the air.
The Plant :
Originally from Australia, eucalyptus globulus can grow up to 50 metres high and needs a good amount of water for its growth. We have selected extracts of Eucalyptus Globulus from Spain, a land very favourable to its development and producing a remarkable oil. The latter gives off a fresh and intense fragrance.
- Tonic and fresh aroma to ward off winter
- Purifies the air and brings freshness
- Skin tonic
In infusion: To tone the body and mind, especially in winter.
To do this, mix 3 to 4 drops of eucalyptus globulus essential oil in a litre of warm, non-boiling water. Indeed, water that is too hot tends to evaporate the essential oil too quickly and could also degrade the essential oil and its components, making it less effective. It is important to dilute the essential oil in honey or on a sugar cube which you will then add in warm water, in order to unify the mixture. Once your preparation is done, you can enjoy your tea for a moment of relaxation, at any time of the day.
Atmospheric diffusion: To clean and purify the atmosphere of your interior, but also to create a fresh atmosphere and thus deodorize a room.
Depending on the diffusers and the size of the room, pour between 5 and 30 drops, and allow 30 minutes for a large room and about 15 minutes for a bedroom. In all cases, comply with the instructions for the device used.
In cosmetics: It is a skin tonic used to solve small skin problems.
The essential oil of Eucalytptus Globulus is used very diluted in a rich vegetable oil to perform a respiratory massage. Pour 4 drops of essential oil for 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil of your choice and gently massage the solar plexus or the area concerned.
Effective mixture to purify and purify the air: 1/3 Eucalyptus globulus essential oil and 2/3 sweet orange in an electric diffuser (10 minutes in a room) or in a candle burner by putting a little water in the dish before putting the mixture.
Caution: Not recommended for the first 3 months of pregnancy and pure use for sensitive skin (dilute 5 to 10% in vegetable oil).
