Eucalyptus oil is used in many of our over the counter cold remedies. Tea can be made out of the leaves, but check with your doctor before ingesting ANY herbal remedy to ensure that it won’t negatively interact with any current medications you are taking. The oil can be diluted and used in mouthwash, as it has been said to kill the bad breath bacteria in the mouth.
Eucalyptus oil can also be used in massage oil to temporarily relieve muscle and joint pain.
