|Young Living carries four types of Eucalyptus:
Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus dives are best applied topically or on the reflex points of the feet, while Eucalyptus radiata and Eucalyptus polybractea are more suitable for diffusing, inhalation, rectal, and douche applications. All eucalyptus oils can be used as dietary supplements; however, total daily intake should not exceed 7 drops.
The scent of Eucalyptus is familiar to anyone that has consumed cough drops. Most Eucalyptus species are helpful for the respiratory tract and are useful in loosening and expectorating mucus. You can inhale the eucalyptus oil and apply it to the chest. You will likely want to dilute with a carrier oil. Sometimes I layer the oils, putting a couple drops of the oil on location, then layer the carrier oil over it as a dilution method. This is useful when using oils that heat up a bit in sensitive skin areas on the body.
You can also put some boiling water in a bowl, then add a couple drops Eucalyptus oil to the water. Put a towel over your head to create a tent, then lower your head over the water and inhale the vapors to clear the sinuses.
Eucalyptol (1.8 cineol) occurs in high concentrations in Eucalyptus globulus and other eucalyptus species. It is responsible for the oil’s ability to decongest the lungs, clear sinus passages, and contributes to a good deal of its anti-infectious, respiratory supporting effects. This oil is especially useful during the cold and flu season.
Eucalyptus globulus is also very effective as an air purifier. It effectively removes odors and airborne bacteria. According to Dr. Jean Valnet, M.D., an solution of only 2% Eucalyptus globulus can kill 70% of airborne Staphylococcus bacteria.
Dr. Jean Valnet M.D. recommends to use Eucalyptus globulus for: General antiseptic purposes, malaria, typhus, measles, reducing blood sugar, fighting respiratory infections, such as bronchitis, tuberculosis, influenza, pneumonia, and sinusitis, combating asthma, opening the sinus and respiratory tract, removing intestinal parasites and worms, treating wounds and burns.
Eucalyptus Globulus has an approximate ORAC of 24,157 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
*** NOTE: Young Living is now growing Eucalyptus globulus in Ecuador. They are finding that the oils produced in Ecuador have more constituents in higher percentages than anywhere else in the world. Eucalyptus globulus tests 10 times more powerful than Eucalyptus globulus grown in Australia. Possible reasons for this are the high elevation, and the rich volcanic ash soil that they are grown in. Ecuador has more volcanoes than anywhere else in the world. It is built on volcanic ash, and the soil is beyond compare.
Eucalyptus radiata is one of the best eucalyptus oils for diffusing. Dr. Penoel recommends Eucalyptus radiata for rhinitis, bronchitis, cough, pulmonary infections, acnes asthma, and vaginitis. The first sign of a cold or flu, a drop of oil should be added to a tablespoon of Honey or Agave and taken every hour for the first five hours and 5 times a day thereafter until symptoms abate. You can also put the drops in an empty 00 capsule.
A drop or two of oil can also be sprinkled on a handkerchief or washcloth and inhaled directly as needed to help with respiratory or sinus conditions. In cases of serious respiratory conditions or yeast infections, you can do an enema or vaginal application, which is recommend by Dr. Penoel. Add 1-2 drops of essential oils to 2-4 tablespoons of grape seed oil or V-6 massage oil.
Dr. Penoel recommends Eucalyptus dives for: Sinusitis, ear infection, vaginitis. It is best used in topical applications as it is the strongest
Dr. Penoel recommends Eucalyptus polybractea CT cineol for: infection of the nasal membranes and chronic bronchitis. It is the least irritating yet one of the most antimicrobial of the Eucalyptus oils. Suitable for most respiratory conditions. Can be diffused, directly applied on the skin. Used in enema or douche application. Can be diluted in honey or Agave for dietary supplement (1-2 drops only/serving)
I use a combination of lavenderand eucalyptus globulus from the shoulder down to the fingertips (especially concentrating around the forearm near the elbow). Also, I would find a good therapeutic massage therapist to work on the forearm flexor and extensor muscles. I’ve had good success with my carpal tunnel clients using the combination of oils and massage. — Vanessa
