Get This One to Help Ward of Cold and Flu
I can’t say this cures a common cold. Darn!
But I have seen it work wonders in boosting the immune system and decreasing the length of colds (Usual length 14 days without treatment).
It certainly works better than an antibiotic LOL. Everyone knows antibiotics don’t cure viruses and that’s what a cold is.
Eucalyptus Radiata is a middle of the road Eucalyptus. It’s slightly less potent than Eucalyptus Globulus.
It is also safer for older adults.
Use it in an inhaler, a steam or diffuser. It will remind you of Vicks due to the camphoraceous smell.
Safety issues: It may decrease the effectiveness of homeopathic remedies
Do not use in children under 10 years old
Care with asthmatics. Some studies have found eucalyptus to trigger asthma attacks, others have found it helpful in asthma attacks.
I cannot recommend internal use but it is especially dangerous in inflammatory disorders of the GI tract and in liver disorders.
Shelf life: 2-3 years from date of distillation with proper storage
