This is the mildest of the Eucalyptus oils, safer for children and the elderly. It may be used for relatively long periods of time. Some authorities recommend it as a preventative as it effects the entire respiratory system and immune system.
Eucalyptus Smithii makes a good room disinfector in a diffuser, but can trigger a cough reflex if breathed too close.
It is one of the best oils for painful joints and muscles.
Eucalyptus Smithii can be both a stimulant or a sedative. It adapts to our needs, stimulating in the morning and relaxing at night.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
