We know TLEO Eucalyptus and its penetrating, woody but lemony scent is beloved for promoting a sense of calm, soothing, and relief. But eucalyptus is a pro to bring along in the outdoors. And it’s milder than eucalyptus globulus oil, making it a great choice for those with skin sensitivities.
Bug bites? The CDC approves eucalyptus oil as an ingredient in insect repellents. Try your own homemade insect repellent: Mix 1 drop of TLEO Eucalyptus with 10 drops of witch hazel in a TLEO Amber Glass Spray Bottle (8 oz.) and shake gently together. Spray to apply. And about those bites: TLEO Eucalyptus helps diminish the appearance of inflammation or irritation of the skin. It promotes the appearance of improved skin after a wound. If you want quick help with feelings of relief from an itchy, swollen bug bite, just add 1 drop of TLEO Eucalyptus to anti-itch, antibacterial, or anti-inflammation cream or ointment before applying to skin. (Always be sure to dilute it before application.)
To support disinfecting and diminished appearance of irritation or abrasions to the skin’s surface, dilute 1-2 drops TLEO Eucalyptus into TLEO Fractionated Coconut Oil and apply to a cotton ball. Before applying, thoroughly clean the skin around the wound, then gently dab on the skin.
Eucalyptus is also valued in pharmaceutical application as a tick repellent – for humans. While studies suggest it’s effective for us, we’re not in the business of animal medicine, so we highly recommend you discuss its potential application on pets with your veterinarian or a licensed practitioner of animal medicine before considering.
Along with eucalyptus, the TLEO All Clear Kit features three mighty anti-inflammatory mainstays in essential oils that are a boon in your efforts against allergy symptoms – TLEO Lemon, TLEO Peppermint, and TLEO Lavender. Lemon’s perky, pleasant punch of D-Limonene helps kill bacteria and blast allergens in the air around your home. Peppermint’s burst of winter wonder can instantly promote feelings of improved airways while it supports a sense of relief from headaches. Lavender, celebrated for its myriad offerings, promotes relaxation and soothing while also supporting feelings of clearer, calmer breathing.
Diffuse 2-3 drops of each TLEO All Clear Kit oil (or 4-6 drops of one of them) in the TLEO Aroma Diffuser to quickly promote a sense of clearer breathing and feelings of relief from symptoms like clogged sinuses and sore throat. Enjoy for 30-45 minutes or diffuse in the bedroom overnight.
And let’s not forget TLEO Lemongrass! Lemongrass essential oil has been relied upon in Indian medicine for centuries, researched for its beneficial support of overall feelings of wellness, with additional research supporting its antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. But its primary constituent, citral, is revered in pharmacology studies for use as an aid in battling the symptoms that come with allergies.
Feeling congested from a day swimming through clouds of pollen outside? Blend with 1-2 drops of TLEO Lemongrass with 1 drop of TLEO Peppermint and 2-3 drops of TLEO Orange and enjoy in the TLEO Aroma Diffuser to promote a sense of clearer breathing.

Pro tip: If you’re going to take TLEO with you while you spend time outdoors, it’s great that our TLEO Amber Glass bottles block damaging sunlight and protect our 100% pure essential oils, but remember: Being in the heat or – especially – in direct sunlight will adversely affect the longevity of the oil. Be sure when you’re outside that your amber bottles are tucked away in a dark container that can keep them at cooler temperatures. Perhaps drop them in a cooler, but be careful to protect them by wrapping them in something like a microfiber cloth, and don’t leave the oils in an icy environment for too long.
*These recommendations are for educational purposes only. Test first for possible allergic reaction. Citrus oils may cause photosensitivity and should not be applied topically when in direct sunlight or going outside. If pregnant or breast-feeding, or taking medications, ask a health professional before use, and consult your doctor about contraindications. Keep out of reach of children.
