Its January, and in most parts of the country we are knee-deep in snow.  With cold and flu season upon us, this time of year can definitely take a toll on or health and skin.  Well here is an ingredient that can help you breather easier, eucalyptus.  Eucalyptus is often the main ingredient in topical ointments or used in teas as a fever reducer. 

I find that when I am experiencing sinus congestion, inhaling eucalyptus oil can alleviate that and it smells great.  Eucalyptus does wonders for muscle aches and pains too.

Try out some of these eucalyptus infused products:
