Showering With Eucalyptus


You probably have heard of eucalyptus in the shower…BUT if you haven’t, well you’re in the right place!

So i once saw an article of all the benefits of showering with a eucalyptus plant so i finally decided to give it a try!

A little background: Eucalyptus, as you may or may not already know, is a plant for relieving symptoms of respiratory issues. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help open up airways in your nose and throat. Long story short it’s great for when you are feeling a little crummy.

And the best news of all is that you can easily alleviate these symptoms simply by taking a shower!

Where to get these Eucalyptus?

I have heard you can get them at Whole Foods and possibly your nearest food store. I got mine at Trader Joe’s!!! You guys… you can literally get eucalyptus at Trader Joe’s for no more than $3!!! #goals

How do they stay in the shower?

Once you have the plant tie them behind the shower head. This plant interacts with the heat of the water and releases all healing essential oils.

How long does this plant have to stay in the shower?

You can leave the eucalyptus in the shower up to a month before it starts to dry out.

Other benefits from Eucalyptus:

  • It will awaken your senses

  • It will clear your mind

  • It will help you de-stress 

  • It will help open your nasal passages and you'll breathe easier 

  • Will freshen the bathroom

I also learned that you can dry out the eucalyptus and put it in a vase indefinitely! So its safe to say my house will become a eucalyptus sanctuary LOL.

I definitely recommend taking a shower with eucalyptus! Even if you don’t feel sick, you honestly still feel so relaxed and refreshed after your shower.

Much love, Laura
