Historical & Spiritual use:
The Australian Aborigines called eucalyptus “kino” and bound the leaves around wounds to protect against infection. They did the same with the tea tree leaves and that finding was passed onto Captain James Cook in 1770 which he shared with the colonists for their use. Eucalyptus and tea tree have were also used by the Aborigines as a traditional medicine against infections, fever, skin conditions and muscle and joint pains.
In ancient Egypt the pine tree was used for pulmonary infections like tuberculosis and pneumonia through steam inhalations. Because it did not shed its needles in the winter it was considered a plant of “immortality.”
It is said Eucalyptus leaves will help protect he or she who carries them and tea tree leaves should be hung in spaces inhabited by sick people. The balsamic scent of pine needle oil is used to relieve anxiety, depression and mental fatigue by calming the nervous system.
