Benefits of Putting Eucalyptus in Your Shower.
Let’s be real, most of us rarely make it to the spa, and we don’t always have time for a nice soak in a hot bath with aromatherapy. Hanging fresh Eucalyptus in your shower gives you the best of both worlds: zero effort and an impressive steamy aromatherapy experience. In my home, the bathroom is near to the front entryway, and almost every guest I have comments on how good it smells even that far out of the bathroom. When you turn the shower on and slide into the warm solace of forgetting about your stress and obligations for a few minutes, you owe it to yourself to feel like you’re in a majestic jungle or at least a spa.
Eucalyptus is known to have antimicrobial, deodorizing, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant properties to name a few.
Bringing a few branches of fresh eucalyptus into a steamy shower will activate and release the beneficial oils in the leaves. Your inflamed airways and congestion will be no match for the powerful combination of eucalyptus and steam! Give it a try the next time you’re feeling stuffy – you’ll be singing the praises of eucalyptus showers to everyone you know.
A few words of advice from JIF- Jack Iannotti Flowers.
For those of you that have never handled a eucalyptus plant would be that it can be sticky, and it’s quite hard to trim. So treat it gingerly, be prepared to wash your hands, and don’t cut it unless you have to. If you feel like for some reason you must hack it apart and you don’t have cutters that are up to par, it’s almost always easier to break it. I usually replace mine about once a month, but this is up to you and how long your leaves stay fragrant.
