In skin care, eucalyptus essential oil is anti-bacterial and can help clear up those pesky pimples a little quicker by gradually treating congested skin. This quality also enables it to encourage healing of minor wounds and ulcers. To complement the clarifying properties of this essential oil in the soap, I added activated carbon and french green clay to gently absorb excess sebum from your skin as you shower.
The scent of eucalyptus is unmistakable — fresh and sharp. It makes you want to stretch out your arms as far as you possibly can, look skywards and inhale deeply. Perhaps this is why it is said to clear those cobwebs in your head and promote focused thought. People who are prone to colds and flus would also value its ability to clear blocked noses when inhaled, as it reduces the swelling of mucus membranes.
Characteristics and Usage
Use on: Face, body, hair. Particularly good for those with oily or congested skin that is prone to breakouts.
Scent: Wonderfully refreshing, and will stay with you for a while after your shower. To help clear up a stuffy or runny nose, it is best to lather up under water that is as warm as you can comfortably tolerate.
Lather: Rich and creamy when used directly on hair or bath puff/sponge. Lathers up quite nicely in the palm of your hand too.
