New Year = New Pain: Eucalyptus Relief

The beginning of the year makes me think of two things: New Year’s Resolutions and Cold/Flu Season! If you fall into the category of “Starting out the New Year with a BANG!!!” then that means that resolutions are formed and action is in full force! This also means that you are probably feeling all the hard work, all over your body! Turn to a natural solution for those muscle aches and pains.

eucalyptusIf you fall into the category of “I just coughed so hard that I think I lost a lung” then, oh you poor thing!!! I hate coughing all night and not being able to sleep, but even worse than that is that I hate listening to my kids cough all night and not be able to sleep. If you are like me, then you don’t like giving your children more medicine than absolutely necessary. There are so many words that I can’t even pronounce on the label and why on Earth are there maximum dosage restrictions???? Turn to a natural solution that you can use as much as needed with no side effects. As soon as you open Eucalyptus Essential Oil you will either immediately think of a very common chest rub for coughs and colds or you will be drawn to the sweet relief of that creamy, muscle pain relieving substances that can bring you to tears if it gets too close to your eyes. That is because Eucalyptus is found in both of these store bought items.

When applied directly to the muscles, Eucalyptus can aid in relief and repair of sore muscles. Use your Eucalyptus on the bottom of the feet (then put socks on) or on the chest to break up mucus and relieve that naggy cough. Eucalyptus is also amazing in the diffuser during the day and especially at night to help aide in rebuilding a healthy respiratory system.
