- Animals such as dogs metabolize essential oils very differently than humans. And with a sense of smell 10,000 to 100,000 times more acute than humans, animals are more affected by essential oil diffusion than one might think. With that said, due to Eucalyptus essential oil’s many precautions toward dogs, we don’t recommend using this oil around your dog. If you’ve already used Eucalyptus essential oil around your dog and notice behavioral differences, such as whining, scratching or acting loopy, move your dog to fresh air and contact your veterinarian. If you wish to use Eucalyptus essential oil without affecting your dog, inhale it using an Essential Oil Inhaler and Mio Mist Diffuser or use it topically.

It is lauded for its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to improve respiratory health. Applied topically in a massage oil blend for pain and aches, it will soothe sore muscles.
- Eucalyptus- Blue is a safe oil to use on the skin but we wholly recommend making sure that you dilute it properly in blend with a carrier oil or butter such as Shea and beeswax. As with all essential oils including any of the Eucalyptus oils, they are very concentrated and if used undiluted can potentially cause skin irritation. It can work incredibly well in salves to repair skin damage and irritation and help reduce the appearance of and heal scars.
- Due to the constituent 1,8 cineole found in Eucalyptus oils, cerebral blood flow is generally increased when any Eucalyptus oil is used in a blend. It can improve cognitive performance making it an oil that would suggest use when you need to stay awake and well focused. Even so, It makes a better essential oil to use for its analgesic, antimicrobial and respiratory properties in blends for soothing sore muscles, cleaning, deodorizing and ushering in clear and unhindered breathing rather than for sleep blends.
