Back to School With Eucalyptol

Back to School with Eucalyptol

Hold on to your hats, it’s back-to-school season! To all you parents out there preparing for (or already knee-deep in) the world of kids’ lunches and homework and – here’s a new one – home schooling and Zoom parent-teacher conferences, we’re here to tell you: you’re doing great. But if you happen to be on the lookout for an added boost in well-being, we here at Kaya Life may have just what you need.

The world of medical cannabis (and terpenes and cannabinoids and, the list goes on...) is big, and can often prove confusing. But that’s what we’re here for. And today we’re turning to Eucalyptol, the latest terpene that’s taking over the spotlight. Or should we say, taking back.

If you think it’s related to the eucalyptus tree, then you’re right. This terpene can be extracted from the very leaves koalas love to snack on between their naps, which often last 18 to 22 hours a day (and probably something you and your nonstop schedule may be envying right about now). Known for its menthol-like scent featuring subtle notes of spice, Eucalyptol is said to have a “cooling effect,” and can be found in herbs like rosemary, sage, and basil. 

And like linalool, limonene, and the other terpenes we hear so much about, research shows strong evidence for the benefits Eucalyptol may offer as well.  

Where it lacks in its scarcity, it makes up for the important role it may play in the treatment of several chronic diseases, particularly thanks to its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antioxidant properties. According to Surterra Wellness, it may also be “an effective treatment for respiratory conditions like asthma or bronchitis, and can be used topically to help relieve muscle and joint pain or prevent infection in minor skin wounds.” And what may be best of all, especially for all you back-to-school parents out there, eucalyptol can be used in aromatherapy to help “stimulate the body and the mind, and help you feel less mentally drained.”

Wondering, “Where do I sign up?” Request an appointment with Kaya today to learn more about the plethora of holistic benefits that cannabis and their terpenes can help open the doors for.
