Eucalyptus can be used for aches associated with a cold, flu or minor muscle injuries; also for congestion. When diffused, it is thought to stimulate the senses, in addition to clearing the nasal passages. Used much like Vick's VapoRub and applying to skin, take a few drops and mix with a teaspoon of a carrier oil, then rub it on your back, chest and feet bottoms.

Allergy suffers know what can set them off. Unfortunately, it isn't just spring but it can happen all year long.
For congestion or allergies: If older than 5, use fir, chamomile, eucalyptus and peppermint. For those 5 or younger, use orange, cypress, fir and cinnamon. Diffused or diluted in a carrier oil such as coconut oil and rubbed on the chest or feet can help.
To boost immune system: The "Thieves" blend is a combination of lemon or orange, cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus and rosemary. If uncomfortable using eucalyptus because the child is younger than 6, substitute fir. Thieves oil can be diffused or diluted and applied to the bottom of a child's feet. I've also used a drop or two in warm water and then gargled with it for a sore throat.
