Eucalyptus globulus (eucalyptus) is an essential oil used by experts for shingles, colds, flu, pain, sinus congestion, and inflammation.
Essential oils are highly concentrated substances and can be harmful to health if used incorrectly. Virtually all clinicians recommend that essential oils only be used under close supervision of a licencsed healthcare provider.
There are anecdotal reports of patients becoming chemically sensitive after prolonged use of essential oils.
