The team at Aurelia Probiotic Skincare are here to tell us why we should be using a Eucalyptus-based cleanser as part of our daily routine.
For centuries eucalyptus oil has been used in many guises and forms to aid with a wide variety of skincare and health concerns. Eucalyptus is a tree native to Australia and has been associated with native medicinal techniques including fighting infection and helping to heal cuts and sores. In order to extract the pure essential oil, the leaves of the eucalyptus tree are steam-distilled using traditional methods.
Historically the oil and leaf extract of eucalyptus has been used as a skin conditioning agent to help soften and smooth and has antimicrobial properties to keep skin clean and fresh. One of the more traditional uses for eucalyptus is as a treatment for colds and congestion. A vapour rub can be made from the oil to massage on to the chest or used in hot water to create steam. The essential oil is often used as a natural fragrance or as part of a blend in skin or body care and can be dripped into a warm bath for an aromatic experience.
