Check out this month’s health article of the month. You will know why I am choosing Eucalyptus Globulus (E.G.)! As per FDA requirements I cannot come right out and say. It is often recommended to use Cinnamon, I have always thought this as well, yet in my oils research there wasn’t a lot to back this up. Unless you are referring to help with circulation issues, Cinnamon is a great help with that!
I am in a quandary, however. If the FDA does not give credence to the oils and does not want me to say what they DO that is beneficial, I still feel an obligation to tell you the warnings because there is a population that should NOT use E.G. I think I will take my chances with the FDA and err on the side of caution with you all and warn you anyway!!!!!
People who should not use E.G. are those with hypoglycemia.
There are many different types of Eucalyptus, of which there are mainly four that are made into oils. Each of them contain different chemical compositions making them a touch better for certain conditions than others. For example, Eucalyptus Citriodora smells lightly citrusy (is that a word)?! and is great as a bug repellent (among other things) while the others don’t have the high citonellal amount that it does.
Too much science? Sorry, I love this stuff! Back to Eucaluptus Globulus:
- Assists with clear breathing
- Supports overall respiratory health
- Supports the endocrine system
- Supports a healthy body temperature
