With the Winter season upon us, we must all take extra special precautions when it comes to the health and vitality of our bodies. We must consistently eat healthy, sleep well, keep warm, and stay as stress-free as possible.
The reality is that during the Winter season, many of us do unfortunately fall ill with sicknesses including colds, fevers, coughs, the flu, etc. But thanks to eucalyptus oil, many of these common ailments that we tend to catch during the Winter season can primarily be avoided.
As a rule, eucalyptus oil for coughs has been shown time and time again to be extremely effective at helping aid both the symptoms of coughs and decrease the body ever falling ill with a cough.
The way to use eucalyptus oil for coughs is to massage the oil into the skin, namely, the soles of the feet. It is beneficial to mix undiluted eucalyptus oil with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil to decrease any chance of skin irritation.
Simply massage the mixture onto the soles of the feet of the one who is ill and the cough will be cured! This is even safe for children, and much healthier than traditional over-the-counter cough syrups.
In addition, eucalyptus oil is amazing at curing colds and preventing them from ever affecting the body. To use eucalyptus oil for colds, simply make a steam inhalation. To do this, boil water on the stove and then add 3-4 drops of the oil, then place a towel over the individual’s head and have them breathe in the eucalyptus-water mixture for 10 minutes. The anti-bacterial and antiviral properties in the eucalyptus oil will treat the cold and open up the breathing passageways in the nose.
Overall, eucalyptus is something of a miracle product that is completely natural, and works great at effectively treating both colds and coughs.
