Eucalyptus for Healing

Leave a comment

Today I’m thinking about the scripture that says “…their leaves will be for healing.” (Ezekiel 47:12)

We have the greatest instruction book of all time. It has stood the test of time and will continue to remain timeless. And in His word, He tells us that the plants and their leaves will be for healing.  Isn’t that incredible! I sing praises to Jehovah-Jireh, our provider, our healer, the great physician.



Respiratory issues: diffuse into the air or inhale directly, can also be applied to chest with a carrier oil to open the lungs

Earache: rub on the outside and back of ear and stroke downward allowing for any drainage to flow into the Eustachian tubes and into the throat.

Acne: apply a few drops to your skin cream to help with acne

Fever: apply directly to soles of feet to pull fever from body or mix with a carrier oil and massage into back

Herpes Simplex lesions: mix Eucalyptus Radiata with Bergamot essential oil and apply directly to lesions.

Inflammation/Arthritis/Back Pain: mix equal parts with a carrier oil and massage into affected area.

Digestive Disturbances: dilute with carrier oil and massage abdomen to help alleviate diarrhea, stomach ache or indigestion.

Eucalyptus radiata is cooling, refreshing, and energizing. Lighter in smell than Eucalyptus globulus, it has many of the same supportive properties. Because it is relatively gentle and nonirritating, it is the preferred choice for children. This variety is one of the most versatile of the eucalyptus oils and is suitable for topical use, diffusing, and even direct inhalation. It has long been an ingredient in some of Young Living’s most popular blends such as:
Other recommendations for using Eucalyptus radiata’s essential oils are the following:
  1. Aromatic Use: Diffuse up to 30 minutes, three times daily. Click picture below for information on diffusing.
2. Topical Use: Using a carrier oil prevents skin irritation from highly concentrated essential oils. Because Eucalyptus radiata is one of the milder forms of Eucalyptus is is said to be nonirritating and the preferable one to use on children.  To be safe, or for those with extra sensitive skin follow the directions below for applying topically using a carrier oil.
Directions: Dilute 1 part essential oil with 1 part vegetable oil.
An oil recommendation is Young Living’s V-6 vegetable oil. For more information, click picture below.
Modern Research: One study found that spraying a 2% solution of Eucalyptus Radiata solution (water)  into contaminated air was effective at killing 70% of staphylococci bacteria.  Eucalyptol , Eucalyptus radiata’s primary active constituent, is used in many pharmaceutical preparations, mouthwashes (like Listerine®) and OTC cold and flu remedies; however, a synthetic form is generally used.  Yet, studies have found that the natural form of eucalyptol is more effective.
