So useful in the bath, on a pillow or a hankie to help that stuffy nose
So fresh and invigorating fragrance, good quality!
Smells absolutely beautiful! I am so happy with these oils and use them for numerous purposes!
Lovely in bath if you’d had a cold,or to relax the muscles
I love this essential oil, I use it in a steam inhalation along with lavender and tea tree oil. Its perfect for my sinusitis, and brings instant relief. This is a good quality oil, highly recommend.
Gorgeous smell. Lots of uses around the house
This is an amazing essential oil, which I have been purchasing regularly from Neal’s Yard for several years now. I like the distinct eucalyptus smell and often diffuse with lemon, litsea or lemongrass essential oils - or with spearmint essential oil. It has an amazing aroma and keeps away colds, blocked or stuffy nose etc. I diffuse almost daily in the morning and at nighttime. I would highly recommend and always have 1 or 2 bottles at any given time.
I have used this for around a month now and I have found that this very relaxing, I will however say this product is strong so if I put too much in my diffuser I understand why people say it smells of animal urine. I only put 3 drops and that smells just fine :)
