Perhaps the ultimate healing oil. Eucalyptus leaves, scented of balsamic camphor, are used by aboriginals to bind wounds; the flower nectar gives honey; and the oil, distilled from the leaves and twigs, is used in medicines, aromatherapy, and perfumes.
Eucalyptus oil is antiseptic, expectorant, and anti-viral, treats pulmonary tuberculosis, lowers blood sugar levels, and is useful for burns, and flu.
The roots of Eucalyptus trees secrete a poisonous chemical, inhibiting the growth of nearby plants.
Add to all healing blends. Apply (undiluted) to the body to relieve colds. Also, used in purification mixtures. For protection, carry the leaves. Burn on charcoal for a powerful cleanser and pleasing scent.
