A RE-CAP OF EUCALYPTUS OIL

Eucalyptus Essential Oil is reputed to purify, cleanse, clarify, and boost immunity. It is popular for its soothing, stimulating, and anti-bacterial properties and can be used in numerous body care products ranging from skin and hair care to emotional care through aromatherapy. This article highlights what can be achieved with natural homemade recipes that use the advantages of Eucalyptus Essential Oil.

USING EUCALYPTUS OIL IN A DIFFUSER OR ROOM SPRAY (SINUS RELIEF AND SPIRITUALITY)

Used in aromatherapy, the cooling and healing scent of Eucalyptus Essential Oil is known to relieve mental exhaustion by boosting circulation, stimulating the mind out of sluggishness and rejuvenating the spirit. Those suffering from sinus congestion or sinus tension that causes headaches can diffuse Eucalyptus Essential Oil to clear nasal passages and to eliminate harmful airborne bacteria.

As a natural disinfecting air spray, Eucalyptus Essential Oil acts as an anti-microbial, non-toxic air freshener that removes from the environment bacteria, viruses, and mold that could contribute to respiratory issues. Diluted with water, a Eucalyptus spray can freshen the room and eliminate the body odors trapped in shoes and sports gear. Those who suffer from allergies will benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties that make it easier to breathe.

  1. EUCALYPTUS MELTING SHOWER CUBE BLEND FOR SINUS RELIEF
Ingredient Amount
Eucalyptus Essential Oil 5-7 drops
Green Food Coloring (optional) Enough for desired shade of green
Water 2 Tbsp
Cornstarch 1 cup

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add the Eucalyptus Essential Oil and Cornstarch to a mixing bowl. Using a spoon, thoroughly mix them together until the mixture appears to be a crumbly powder.
  2. (Optional) Add in a few drops of the food coloring and thoroughly mix it into the powder.  The coloring might not be very concentrated until step 3 is complete.
  3. Combine the water into the powder until the food coloring disperses evenly throughout the mixture and clumps begin to form in the powder. (Note:This amount of water will not be sufficient for forming a paste; however, from this starting point, more water can be carefully rationed to form a paste.)
  4. Continue adding a few drops of water at a time, mixing it in well. (As soon as water touches the Cornstarch, the latter begins to harden, so adding water slowly is critical.)
  5. Once a thick paste has formed, transfer the mixture to a mini ice cube tray.  Smooth and flatten the mixture so that it is level with the top of the ice cube tray, in order to form perfect cubes.
  6. Freeze the tray contents for 1 hour or until the mixture is set.
  7. When the shower cubes are ready for use, place them on the shower floor and turn the water on. To prevent slippage in the shower, place the cube in a shallow dish or near the shower drain.
  8. Shower as usual and enjoy the aromatic vapor from a cube as the water melts it and diffuses its decongestant scent.
  9. Store unused shower cubes inside a jar in a cool, dry place. If the cubes are runny due to too much water in the mixture, store them in the freezer.
  10. If the cubes do not diffuse a strong enough aroma for personal scent preference, more essential oils can be added to the finished cubes. This can be done by first crushing the cubes in a mixing bowl, then adding a few more drops of essential oils to the powder, and stirring in small amounts of water to recreate a paste. The paste can then be placed in an ice cube tray and frozen until ready for use.
