Eucalyptus is distilled from the leaves and twigs. One very important reason why many individuals use eucalyptus oil is its ability to address mental exhaustion through creating a cooling and refreshing effect. As a stimulant, it helps eradicate exhaustion and mental sluggishness, and rejuvenates “the spirits of the sick.”
The uses of eucalyptus include spiritual transformation as well! Eucalyptus brings into the light. This includes the relationship to our self, to others, to our work, and the divine. It promotes opening of the heart and solar plexus chakras.
