The scent of Eucalyptus is hard to miss. Sweet, crisp, refreshing and oh-so-uplifting, it is a staple in spas and meditation centers for its signature relaxing and ultra soothing aroma.
Eucalyptus Oil is distilled from the leaves of an evergreen tree that is native to Australia, but now grown in almost every part of the world. The trees can grow upto 200 feet tall and produce an oil that is so strong, that when it’s released into the air, create a distinctly visible blue haze. Eucalyptus Oil has powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that help treat a range of skin, hair and overall health issues and contains multiple skin-enhancing, glow-boosting ingredients such as 1, 8-cineole (aka cineole or eucalyptol), flavonoids, and tannins.
BENEFITS FOR THE SKIN
Eucalyptus Oil has powerful antimicrobial and anti-bacterial properties that help in clearing excess sebum from the skin and reduce acne while its potent wound-healing properties also help quickly diminish acne scars. It is also packed with skin-energizing antioxidants, which means that it also helps protect the skin from environmental damage and UV ray-induced photoaging.
Eucalyptus Oil also helps increase the ceramide content in your skin (Ceramides are a type of fatty acid in your skin that are vital for maintaining a healthy skin barrier, retaining the moisture content in the skin, reducing inflammation and preventing UVB-induced collagen degradation), making it an important ingredient for those with dry skin issues since it helps combat everything from itchiness to inflammation.
BENEFITS FOR THE HAIR
Using Eucalyptus Oil for the hair helps soothe the scalp and provide relief from itchiness and scaliness since it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps boost hair growth and stimulate and energize the follicles for added strength and support to the strands. A Eucalptus Oil-infused product also helps regulate oil production in the scalp and protect your hair from sun damage.
