Eucalyptus offers aromatherapy that is cool, sweet, and just a tad bit earthy. Its aroma is almost like a mix of mint, pine, and honey. In your bath, pure eucalyptus essential oil gives off a spa-like atmosphere that cools and soothes the senses.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil Benefits In Baths
In a bath soak, the essential oil of eucalyptus offers soothing benefits with its fresh and minty aroma. Its lovely neutral aroma blends well with additional essential oils, and it promotes deep relaxation.
Some of the many benefits of eucalyptus essential oils in a bath soak or salt are:
Can soothe the mind – The cooling, clearing, and soothing nature of aromatherapy with eucalyptus is perfect for an overworked mind. As you sink into the bath, the fresh fragrance of eucalyptus will envelop you, prompting you to breathe deeply and feel the calm from the inside out. For baths taken to promote feelings of relaxation and clarity, a soak with eucalyptus is a must.
May soothe the skin – An epsom salt bath is a great way to soothe and comfort the skin, and this could be made even better with a blend that uses the essential oil of eucalyptus. The cooling nature of eucalyptus oil is gentle to the skin when enjoyed in a 15- to 20-minute epsom salt bath.
Can improve one's well-being – A study conducted by a Korean University recommends that "eucalyptus aroma therapy be used for university students with allergic rhinitis to reduce their symptoms."
- Can keep bugs at bay – While humans may love the fresh, cooling, and minty aroma of eucalyptus, it is known to impede many insects' sense of smell, so they're forced out of the space where the scent of eucalyptus is strong enough.
