Steam Inhalation: no more than 2-3 drops in a pot of boiled water that has been removed from the heat and with closed eyes, inhale the steam for 1-2 min. For a more intense experience, make a tent over your head and the pot with a towel to keep the steam contained. Great for colds, flu, sinusitis, bronchitis and sore throat.

Cautions: There are many varieties of Eucalyptus essential oil. Eucalyptus radiata is the preferred choice for all, especially for use with children and the elderly as it is slightly milder, yet very effective for the conditions listed above. For children over 5 yrs. use topically at 0.5 – 1%, (at half or less, the strength recommended for adult use). Do not apply to skin of children under 5 yrs. Diffusion is a better choice for very young children.
Eucalyptus must be well diluted to be used for use on skin or it may cause irritation. Please follow guidelines for amounts. Eucalyptus is a very effective essential oil and can help with a wide variety of conditions and is usually very well tolerated on the skin when diluted properly. However, it is poisonous if ingested and can be fatal if taken by mouth.
NEVER take any Eucalyptus Essential Oil internally.
With skin application of any essential oil, if irritation occurs, immediately wash the area with soap and water and discontinue use.
