Unearthing The Power Of Eucalyptus – Top 5 Travel Products

Eucalyptus

The refreshingly sweet smell of Eucalyptus was one of the first things I fell in love with in South America. We were in Peru. It was our third week on our Inca to Inuit adventure and we were taking a day hike in Huaraz. As we walked up through the hills surrounding the city I fell in love with the colour and scent of the Eucalyptus tree’s. Their pistachio coloured leaves and multicoloured barks held my attention the whole afternoon. So much so that ever since I have been on the hunt for anything vaguely eucalyptus scented to keep my love affair alive

The healing and medicinal benefits of Eucalyptus have been celebrated for hundreds of years, whether it be the Andean people using the sweet oil as a medicinal vapour in their baths or as a hand soap. Today we can find Eucalyptus oil in our everyday favourite beauty products whether it be used to perk up our morning shower or for soothing aching, tired skin.

Eucalyptus Huaraz

As a natural antiseptic, stimulator and highly effective for muscular fatigue, Eucalyptus is a must have for any frequent traveller. Whether it be to perk you up after a long flight or soothe aching muscles after a day’s adventure.
