Eucalyptus Oil – An oil extracted from a tree native to Australia, Eucalyptus Oil works wonders in alleviating the symptoms of respiratory problems and as an antiseptic. Ozone is formed when Eucalyptus Oil (EO) is exposed to air, and this protective layer has germicidal properties, keeping wounds clear of infections and helping wounds heal faster. Another fantastic quality of Eucalyptus Oil is it’s antimicrobial and decongestant ability. This is why EO is used in many nasal decongestants or for the treatment of sore throat (gargles), sinus, cough, flu and other respiratory symptoms.
Evening Primrose Oil – Evening Primrose Oil, or EPL as it’s commonly known, is packed full of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which are essential for healthy brain development and overall hormonal balance. Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids maintain cognitive function and brain growth, and also act as carriers for key fat-soluble vitamins like A, K, D and E, which are in turn necessary for the absorption of other important minerals and nutrients for our body. Research has also shown that EPL consumption helps regulate hormones in the body and aids digestion, thus improving overall body functions, strengthening the immune system, and consequently helping alleviating conditions like eczema and psoriasis, and even PMS symptoms.
