Cold weather is a great time for aromatherapy. In fact, if you’ve ever been sick, had sore muscles, or sprained anything, then chances are you’ve probably had a run in with Eucalyptus.
Eucalyptus is one of my favorite wintertimes oils because it has a lot of great properties.
Dry Winter air makes colds much easier to catch by drying out your sinuses which causes them to crack and creates a great environment for colds to enter your body. If you are easily susceptible to colds at this time, then that might be a factor. You will find that a lot of humidifiers utilize eucalyptus because it greatly benefits the nasal passages.
If you are familiar with Vick’s Vapor Rub then you’re probably very familiar with the smell of it. Eucalyptus is great for clearing your nasal passages and soothing coughs. It has a great minty smell! Taking a bath with a few drops of eucalyptus oil or putting it into a diffuser can help you breathe so much easier when you are congested from a cold!
It can also relieve headaches and is good for purification and clear headedness.
