Eucalyptus in homeopathy: properties, benefits and uses (all you need to know)

What is eucalyptus?

Eucalyptus acts on the mucous membranes and can be used as a remedy for all age groups, including self-medication. Although rarely used, the remedy has a positive effect on various complaints of the respiratory, urogenital and digestive tracts. It has a circulation-enhancing and antiseptic effect. Eucalyptus has a positive effect on the flora of the urinary tract and bladder as well as the mucous membranes of the stomach and intestines.
