Observations and Anecdotal Information
Lemon Eucalyptus is a great antiviral, and fights fungal as well as bacterial infection. Its immune enhancing properties are superb, especially when diffused into the air or applied topically as a chest or spinal compress. It has the ability to reduce fever; relieve coughs, sore throat, and laryngitis; and even reduce herpes breakouts.
It is also effective in opening the breathing passages of asthmatics, and should be used cautiously for this purpose until it is determined how well it works for an individual.
This oil is a favorite amongst my customers! The lemony aroma is easy on the sense's, while still providing the strong benefits of the eucalyptus properties.
Lemon Eucalyptus is also popular for its ability to repel mosquitos. To create your own mosquito-free spray, you would want to create a 10% dilution and shake well each time before using.
