In addition to anti-bacterial properties (in 1880s, surgeons were already using eucalyptus oil as an antiseptic during operations and toward the end of the century, the oil was used in most hospitals in England to clean urinary catheters)
Like citriodora, can be used with aloe vera to make an insect-repellent gel or in an aromatic water base for spraying, or as an addition to neem leaf powder, diatomaceous earth and / or green clay for an insect-repellent powder – subject of course to what is chosen by the animal concerned.
Eucalyptus oil exhibits antibacterial activity against cariogenic (tooth decay-causing) and periodontopathic bacteria.
It is also able to address mental exhaustion through creating a cooling and refreshing effect and eucalyptus essential oil is commonly used for stimulating mental activity and increasing blood flow to the brain (has been used in classrooms for this reason).
