Aids for stuffy nose, sinusitis and bronchitis
Warm water + eucalyptus = steam that opens your airways. Research on steaming with eucalyptus oil confirms that it can help relieve the discomfort of a cold or nasal congestion caused by seasonal allergies. With eucalyptus branches in your shower you achieve a slightly less intense, but comparable effect. Eucalyptus can also help asthmatics to breathe easier.
Most people find peace under a nice warm shower, but eucalyptus also contains an ingredient (eucalyptol) that scientists say has a relaxing effect.
There is a reason that eucalyptus is often used as an ingredient in treatments for headaches and muscle pain, because it increases the flow of blood to the treated area, reducing inflammation and pain. Meanwhile, researchers discovered that breathing eucalyptus vapors can also reduce pain.
Are you really not a morning person? Good news: The oil that evaporates from your eucalyptus branches in a warm shower can help wake you up. By opening up your airways, more oxygen gets into your blood. And when oxygenated blood flows to your brain, you feel sharper and more awake.
Every plant lover knows it, but it is also confirmed by science: plants in your living space provide a comfortable, calming feeling. And we could all use that, right?
