A eucalyptus branch hanging on my shower head? Yes please! But why?
I have recently been day-dreaming of making it to a spa, any spa.. This recent hack I discovered is hopefully going to get me closer to realizing my dream. An at-home spa experience as super easy as can be done… Simply hang a few eucalyptus branches around your shower head (make sure they aren’t in the direct stream of water) and let the steam do its job.. Breath in deep to a minty sweet aroma as it mixes with the steam.
In case you haven’t heard of eucalyptus before, it’s an herb that’s considered an aromatherapy agent.. A stimulant that is potent with essential oils that raves for delivering anti-stress, mood-enhancing and energizing benefits.. Which makes it a perfect fit for that morning pick-me-up in the shower.. Adding a few branches of eucalyptus into your steamy shower will activate and release the beneficial oils in the leaves.
Eucalyptus is a powerhouse plant known for relieving symptoms of respiratory issues. As you inhale eucalyptus, its anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and decongestant qualities are released. It opens up the airways in your nose and throat. Your inflamed airways and congestion will be no match for the powerful combination of eucalyptus and steam! And the best news of all is that you can easily harness the anti-inflammatory powers of fresh eucalyptus simply by taking a shower! It’s also demonstrated efficacy as an antispasmodic, an agent used to relieve muscle spasms..
Well that’s a decent way to put an end to a long and stressful day..
