    About Eucalyptus macarthurii Essential Oil

    Like other eucalyptus oils, macarthurii has an affinity with the skin, respiratory tract and immune system, making it suitable for topical application as well as direct inhalation. Its powerful immune boosting properties make eucalyptus oil a star supporter of the respiratory system by encouraging the body's natural process of decongesting. By encouraging oxygen uptake, it promotes expectoration of mucus, and encourages detoxification and a deeper level of immune support especially during cold and flu season.

    Cleansing and penetrating, eucalyptus oil may be used topically, diffused or in inhalation therapy to support cerebral circulation, the immune system and muscle and joint health. A topical calmative for body and skin, eucalyptus essential oil promotes tissue repair and a healthy inflammatory response encouraging healthy skin. It may also be used topically as an insect repellent.

    Eucalyptus has a refreshing and stimulating action on the mind, helping to improve concentration. It is associated with the alleviation of grief and sorrow, as well as opening the heart and intellect while equalizing emotions.

    Lemon Scented Eucalyptus Oil: Eucalyptus citriodara, lemon scented
