“Eucalyptus radiate is known for its antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties and can provide effective relief for a fever. This is because it is considered to be a vasodilator, meaning that it helps to widen blood vessels and as a result, blood circulates more effectively throughout the body. This translates to an increase in blood flow that can be very beneficial, especially during a time when the body’s immune response generates a fever due to an invasion on the system.”
How to Treat a Fever with Eucalyptus Essential Oil:
“Place 1-3 drops of eucalyptus oil on a cotton ball and apply to the temples.
Eucalyptus oil can also be applied directly to the temples one drop at a time.
Repeat every hour until fever breaks”
