Eucalyptus Globulus (Australia)
Commonly used : all purpose oil for many respiratory uses, colds and flu, stuffy noses, good choice to diffuse in sickrooms. Useful in massage blends for muscular aches. Energizing, clears negative energy. Research from my school - ACHS, showed the ability to destroy dust mites, and is helpful for those with allergies. See recipe.
Although widely used, we don't use this oil on children under 2, as it is high in 1,8 cineole and may cause a very young child to have a "choking" type response, rare but possible.
