Our opinion Eucalyptus is the most "direct" in its personality. Depending on the circumstances and your state of mind, this aspect will sometimes appear reassuring, sometimes invasive. Think of combining it with essential oils that will give it a little restraint and softness, such as fine lavender or petit grain sour orange. Precautions for use Food supplement.
