One of my favorite aromas….eucalyptus.
Not only does this flowering (& super beautiful) tree smell great, but the leaves possess powerfully medicinal properties as well.
The oil extracted from the leaves is widely known as a powerhouse in the form of natural medicine.
Its’ benefits include:
- Cleanses Toxins
- Cleanses Air
- Destroys Mold
- Treats Respiratory Problems
- Natural Pain Reliever
- Reduces Inflammation
- Stimulates Immunity
- Lowers Blood Pressure
…& those are just SOME of the most exciting benefits that I have discovered through reading the plethora of eucalyptus studies and research to date, and incorporating these aromatic showers in to my lifestyle.
All you have to do is hang some eucalyptus branches from the shower head or rod. The heat/steam during showers will further activate the oils within the leaves, and not only does it release a revitalizing smell, but the experience is entirely soothing and other-worldly euphoric.
To me, it has this magical way of not only being awakening in the morning, but then also, suuuper calming before bed at nighttime.
Oh, and the leaves seemingly last an amount of time (not drying out) that has been beyond my belief…. so that $2.99/bunch from the local flower shop goes a long way!
