Eucalyptus for the Shower

Posted by on

It’s a well-known fact that during the colder months, viruses and bacterial illnesses become more prevalent. To avoid catching a nasty cold or flu bug, try incorporating natural aromatherapy into your daily routine! Eucalyptus oil is a natural decongestant, making it the perfect remedy for those suffering from sickness, asthma, or allergies. Additionally, the calming, refreshing scent of eucalyptus can satiate headaches, muscle tightness, and inflammation, and aids in putting you in a good headspace before you head off to work or helping you to unwind after a long day. To fully harness the benefits of eucalyptus, try hanging a “bath bouquet” in your shower! Simply purchase a bundle of eucalyptus branches at your local farmers market or craft store, wrap the branches together using garden twine (more moisture-resistant than cotton twine) and hang from your shower head, facing away from the spray of water. The heat and steam from the shower will awaken your senses, open your nasal passages, and freshen up your bathroom all at the same time! Looking to spice things up? Add a handful of lavender, rosemary, mint, or lemongrass stems to your bouquet to switch up the scent every now and then. Enjoy your bath bouquet for a few weeks, then replace.]>>
