Mother Nature has been particularly kind to the cuddly Australian Koala. The Koala, not actually a bear as most think but actually a tree-dwelling marsupial closely related to the kangaroo, makes a steady diet of the leaves of the Eucalyptus Tree. For any other animal, these leaves would be poisonous. But for the Koala, Mother Nature has provided it with microbes in its system to break down the poisons. That means the Koala can diet on Eucalyptus and nap in the trees – two things it does throughout most of the day – and never worry about side effects.
Mother Nature has been pretty good to her human offspring as well when it comes to Eucalyptus. The oil of these tall evergreen trees has a range of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. In fact, many of today’s over-the-counter medicines, especially those for treating to treat coughs and cold, contain eucalyptus,
Eucalyptus oil also is very beneficial in treating muscle pain. Organic Factswrites that massaging eucalyptus oil on the surface of the skin helps to relieve stress and pain among those suffering from rheumatism, lumbago, sprained ligaments and tendons, stiff muscles, aches, fibrosis and even nerve pain. The site says that the oil should be massaged in a circular motion on the affected areas of the body.
Medical News Todayreferences a study in the American Journal of Medicine and Rehabilitation in which Eucalyptamint, an OTC preparation with the generic name methyl salicylate topical used to treat strains and sprains, arthritis, bruising and backache, was applied on the anterior forearm skin of 10 subjects. The study concluded that “Eucalyptamint produced significant physiologic responses that may be beneficial for pain relief/and or useful to athletes as a passive form of warm-up.”
