Colds and flu: Eucalyptus essential oil helps to ease the aches and pains that come with colds and flu when the oil mixture is added to an epsom salt bath. Increase the amount of eucalyptus oil to 15 drops in a tablespoon of carrier oil, and add to a warm bath with two cups of epsom salt.
To stop the cough rub 4-6 drops of Eucalyptus oil on the soles of their feet at bedtime. That’s all…no more coughs… or 6-8 drops in bath water helps congestion. I've used this since my daughter was very young! Love it.
