is it safe to use eucalyptus oil in nasal irrigation?

ive been putting a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil in my nasal irrigation solution for about 2 days. its very strong ive read that it has anti bacterial properties so i tried it. i most of the time have clear mucus when i irrigate but now since the last 2 days my mucus has been a tannish color. so wondering if this is safe and if it is causing more to infect my sinuses?
