Eucalyptus Dives

by Andrea on January 12, 2010

Feeling congested? Eucalyptus dives may help.

Eucalyptus dives is a unique essential oil that I love having in my collection.

It’s especially good for reducing thick mucus–great for that cold or flu that you just can’t shake and the congestion is driving you crazy! You can steam with it, put it into a chest rub, dilute it in an unscented lotion and massage your feet with it, or simply diffuse it.

It has a lovely camphoraceous, minty aroma that differs from all the other Eucalyptus species.

Eucalyptus  is best used with children over 10 years old and adults.

Eucalyptus dives Steam Blend

10 drops Eucalyptus dives
10 drops Siberian Fir (Abies siberica)
10 drops Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora)

This undiluted combination of oils becomes your “stock bottle.” Use one drop total from the stock bottle in a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head and the bowl, close your eyes and breathe. Be sure the water is not too hot and your skin feels comfortable with the steam. I usually steam for about a minute. Great way to clear your head!
