Eucalyptus is wonderful. I think just about everybody knows that Trader Joe’s is the best place to get this beautiful and herbaceously fragrant plant to put in their kitchen (or tie to their shower head for that amazing, spa like experience!!! Steam + Eucalyptus is glorious!). But why would eucalyptus be included in your skin care ingredients??
Because of Eucalyptus Oil’s many skin (and overall health) benefits, we include it as an ingredient in 3 really different products:
One of my favorite ways to bless my skin and body is with a good bath. Our Eucalyptus Frankincense Bath Bomb is my GO TO for fighting the crud. The steam with the bath bomb release alllll the aromatic benefits of Eucalyptus and Peppermint , combined with trace minerals/salts to help you continue to detox and dump the nasty germs. Eucalyptus also helps reduce inflammation so an EXCELLENT choice for sore muscles. (again, combined with the hot water, it is so soothing). My kids absolutely love taking a bath with this bath bomb (and so do I!).
Remember, if you’re putting straight oils into your bath, only use a few drops! The oil is so potent.
Your feet are so important-- and yet they can suffer from dry heels, athletes foot, bad circulation, dry spots, other infections, swelling and soreness. Eucalyptus was one of the first ingredients I KNEW I wanted in our Foot Cream. Since it reduces inflammation and also helps fight infection, it’s a win! I loved using the foot cream while pregnant and my feet and ankles would swell and be sore. And it's such a potent oil that it maintains its anti-inflammatory properties and aromatic potency while not being unsafe or over powering.
Reducing inflammation and fighting bacteria is one of the best things an ingredient can do, so we we have a whole soap that features it! Our Eucalyptus Spearmint Soap is not only amazing in a hot shower (again with the aromatic, sinus opening effects with the skin), it is excellent for helping with fighting bad bacteria on your skin. From acne, zits, break outs… the eucalyptus helps reduce the redness and inflammation while keeping the bacteria from spreading.
So, is eucalyptus the coolest or what? Here are some things to remember about essential oils, especially eucalyptus. These are powerful oils, so they shouldn’t be put directly on skin. They should always be diluted almost 1-5% eucalyptus and 95-99% carrier oil. For the same reason eucalyptus oil shouldn’t be used to close to the eyes, or ingested. Also, this is a fairly common allergy. So make sure that you are not allergic to eucalyptus before diffusing it… This happened to my dad. He was congested so I was diffusing eucalyptus oil and it actually made him feel worse… So just know that being allergic to eucalyptus is not uncommon. I will say he can still use her foot cream which contains eucalyptus oil, but it’s such a small amount in the final product that it doesn’t bother him… The eucalyptus only seems to bother him when it’s diffused into the air.
