The Orchid Tip: Add a few drops of Argan Oil to your favourite body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, lip balm or hand cream to boost its properties.
Silence a Cough
The popular rub is applied to the chest and throat to relieve cough symptoms from the common cold or flu.
Clear Your Chest
Are you coughing but nothing is coming up? Eucalyptus oil can not only silence a cough, it can also help you get the mucus out of your chest. Inhaling vapor made with the essential oil can loosen mucus so that when you do cough, it’s expelled. Using a rub containing eucalyptus oil will produce the same effect.
The Australian aborigines used eucalyptus leaves to treat wounds and prevent infection. Today the diluted oil may still be used on the skin to fight inflammation and promote healing. You can purchase creams or ointments that contain eucalyptus oil. These products may be used on minor burns or other injuries that can be treated at home.
