Perhaps one of the most well-known essential oils, Eucalyptus is chiefly used for respiratory conditions. Many will be familiar with its powerful scent, which acts quickly on stuffy noses and congested chests. It is also commonly used in cleaning products as a potent antiseptic agent. Eucalyptus is useful for topical applications such as cuts, scrapes and bites. It may also be used in liniments and massage balms to soothe aching muscles and joints.
