Eucalyptus essential oil is well-known for its use (in steam inhalations) as an expectorant, for colds, coughs, flu, etc. Of all the different varieties of eucalyptus, the radiata is considered by most aromatherapists to be the best choice for most therapeutic uses, as it is milder than most of the others, yet just as effective. Eucalyptus oil is also cooling, stimulating, anti-infectious, astringent, and anti-inflammatory.
