Observations and Anecdotal Information
Eucalyptus smithii essential oil is considered the most mild of eucalyptus oils. It has a gentle effect when used topically on the skin. This makes it a good choice for application to skin rashes, acne, and break outs.
It can help stimulate a quick recovery from colds and infections. It can boost the immune system when traveling on airplanes, or otherwise exposed to contagious diseases. I like to use it in a convenient inhaler blank for this purpose.
Eucalyptus smithii is also used as a muscle relaxant. It makes a wonderful massage oil for muscles and joints. It has mild pain relieving properties, and stimulates circulation, and the removal of toxicity and lactic acid build-up in muscles.
It also opens breathing passages and clears nasal congestion and sinuses. For this purpose, it can be inhaled, or compressed with a hot washcloth over sinuses, throat, and chest. See this link for instructions on how to apply a compress.
