Oil from Australian Eucalypts is a powerful healer
Aromatherapy Oils in Australia
Here in Australia we are lucky enough to have some aromatherapy oils that come from this wide brown land.
Soon after the English claimed the new land they called Australia, the early settlers learnt from the native aboriginal people about the medicinal benefits of the eucalypt and tea tree bush.
Today much is known about the healing benefits of the oils from these plants and they are known around the world.
In recent years rich aromatherapy oils from more Australian native plants have revealed themselves to us.
Benefits of Australian Oils
Eucalypt is known to be very beneficial to help ease head colds and bronchitis. Put a few drops in an aromatherapy burner during winter to keeps cold and 'flu at bay. If you have a head-cold an inhalation with eucalyptus oil will clear your head.
Tea tree has wonderful antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is good to put on cuts and sores. It can be applied 'neat', that is, it does not have to be diluted. Tea tree oil takes the sting out of mosquito bites. Apply to the skin beforehand to deter mosquitos, or after being stung by them.
Ducane Kunzea is a powerful antioxidant. It is so strong that it stops metal from oxidising (rusting) and preserves wood. It has wonderful healing properties. It is an anti-inflammatory, eases pains of arthritis and other aches and pains. It is also proven to kill 99.5% of Golden staph (Staphylococcus aureus). Ducane Kunzea is from Tasmania in the far south of Australia.
Fragonia is as strong as tea tree oil in its anti-infectious and anti-bacterial properties. It is a good expectorant and an effective treatment for joint, muscle and dental pain. Fragonia has a mild, very pleasant fragrance. Fragonia is from Western Australia.
