Eucalyptus is King
Did you know that Eucalyptus essential oil has been used for centuries as an antifungal and antibacterial agent in indigenous Australian medicine?
The power of Eucalyptus trees lies in its aromatic compound called Cineole (Eucalyptol) which is packed into the oil glands of its leaves and bark. This compound produces the distinct penetrating woody-sweet scent we know as Eucalyptus, and research has proven the antibacterial, antiseptic, and antifungal properties of it.
There are over 900 species of Eucalypts and the mighty Eucalyptus Regnans also known as Mountain Ash is the tallest flowering plant in the world. Today the tallest living known specimen is a 99.8m tall tree growing in the Arve valley of Tasmania, Australia.
In a world-first study in Australia scientists discovered gold particles in the leaves, twigs, and bark of certain Eucalyptus trees which they believed were situated on top of gold deposits buried deep under the earth and that the trees appeared to be sucking up gold in their search for moisture. It is estimated that the gold was being sucked up from an astounding 30 metres depth.
Eucalyptus is an extraordinary plant with its cooling, camphoric, and woody scent and its essential oil has invigorating herbal qualities that open air pathways and help relieve upper respiratory congestion. It is best known for its effectivity against coughs and colds and its antimicrobial and antiviral properties make it indispensable in the home during the winter months when we are most susceptible to flus and viruses.
The outcome of a recent medical study on the effectivity of essential oils as an alternative treatment of Covid-19 reported that “the essential oil of Eucalyptus and Corymbia species (Eucalyptol) can be utilized as a potential inhibitor against Covid-19 and can also be used in its treatment.”
