Eucalyptus has excellent antimicrobial properties. It can be useful for treating acne, ulcers, wounds and measles. It can also be used as an insect repellent and for treating bites and stings.
Eucalyptus globulous has a stimulant effect and is good for fatigue, lethargy, and feelings of heaviness in the mind.
