With flu season upon us, eucalyptus oil is a household must-have that is used to treat a variety of common symptoms – from difficulty breathing or shortness of breath to nasal congestion, cough, as well as sore throat, among many others.

Eucalyptus oil is often used as an essential oil with a diffuser for aromatherapy health benefits – we love an all-rounder! That’s why it’s often found in massage blends, inhalers and ointment.

Hercules Eucalyptus Oil

Hercules harnessed the goodness to create a 100% pure eucalyptus oil, making it a natural remedy that has been taking care of families for generations. Eucalyptus oil must be diluted and should not be ingested at its full strength, but it’s a safe natural oil remedy that offers multiple healing and anti-inflammatory purposes.

The benefits of eucalyptus oil include:

  • Improves breathing problems. It can be used to assist with breathing if you are having difficulty or shortness of breath. TIP To make a eucalyptus inhalant, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to boiling water and deeply inhale the steam.
  • Relieves cough and sore throat. Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to carrier oil and rub the mixture onto the chest and throat. TIP You could also dilute a few drops of eucalyptus oil in boiling water and inhale the steam.
  • It acts as a decongestant. Eucalyptus oil is a bronchial dilator, it helps increase airflow to the lungs.TIP If you're feeling blocked and stuffy, add a few drops to your shower or bath.
  • Helps with asthma and allergies. It is highly effective in killing and controlling dust mites, which are a major trigger in asthmatic and allergy attacks. Simply spray linen and clothes with water and eucalyptus oil.
