We choose to use USDA certified organic Eucalyptus (Blue Mallee) Essential Oil in our Body & Feet Treat Moisturizing Body Scrub. The Blue Mallee varietal of Eucalyptus has the highest amount of 1,8 Cineole--the constituent that gives Eucalyptus its most healing and therapeutic properties.
Eucalyptus has many applications for both the skin and aromatherapy applications. For skin applications, it purifies by removing dirt, to warming, toning, and refreshing skin. It has potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, germicidal properties to help heal cuts and abrasions. And it stimulates circulation, increasing vascularity, which flushes out inflammation and helps to heal tissues more quickly.
For aromatherapy uses, Eucalyptus helps to clear the mind and the senses, as well respiratory congestion! It promotes mental acuity and focus while having a calming centering effect as well--very balanced!
