Eucalyptus: Good for Mind, Body and Business

You may be surprised to find that Eucalyptus, a plant commonly known for it's essential oil, is a valuable enhancement to your creativity, personal health and productivity.

Follow me here.  First, let's dive into some of the main properties of Eucalyptus oil and see why it is such a valuable asset to your life quality and success.

  • antiseptic
  • expectorant 
  • stimulant
  • anti-inflammatory
  • anti-spasmodic
  • decongestant
  • deodorant
  • anti-microbial  
There's a common thread weaving through that list of characteristics.  Not only does it kill bacteria (and other invaders) but it improves circulation and acts as a bronchiodilator. 

Do you see where this is going?  It's absolutely amazing!  

The benefit this miracle plant brings to your health is clear.  Think of the opportunities to empower your immune system against the cold season in winter!  On top of that, add it to your first aid kit for your next camping adventure as both an aid in healing and as an anti-inflammatory muscle rub.  

Next up - is the bronchioldilation perk.  This is the substance that dilates the bronchi and bronchioles, decreasing resistance in the respiratory airway and increasing airflow to the lungs.  This not only breaks up congestion but paves the way for deeper breathing; and that's something we all need much more of.  Studies have shown us that deeper breathing slows the heart rate along with the rate of aggression and the cortisol (stress hormone) that accompanies it.  In addition to decreased stress, deep breathing brings more oxygen to the brain; a necessary ingredient for creative flow and productivity. 

When there is plenty of oxygen in the brain, we are stimulated, have the ability to think more clearly, our senses are heightened and we welcome new ideas with improved motivation. 

Imagine adding a Eucalyptus Spray to your shower or steam room.  Imagine enjoying a few sprays in a room just before you begin your workday, creative process or meditation.  I assure you, the results will be invigorating and your health will benefit as well. 

But don't simply take my word for it.  Visit us now, at Eurospa and discover just how wonderful the addition of eucalyptus oil to your daily routine can be!
