We all need a time for ourselves in the shower, whether is in the morning or in the night, no matter of the time we want to relax and enjoy. There are many natural methods that can improve your shower routine like soaps and masks but there is also a plant that you can hang it over the shower head. Eucalyptus is a tree that it was used long time ago in the aboriginal medicine, from Australia.
It is used to clears your respiratory tracts and chases away psychological fog, so it is best to put it in above your shower head and use it just as long as it doesn’t get too wet.
When you keep eucalyptus in the steamy shower activates the plant’s advantageous properties, especially is useful when used to treat the respiratory signs of the cold and influenza.
Other benefits consist of:
- Antibacterial and analgesic properties.
- Enhances your body immune system.
- Expectorant (pushes out phlegm).
- Antiparasitic (works well against head lice).
- Battles inflammation.
- Invigorating and relaxing fragrance.
- Soothes hurting joints.
You can buy eucalyptus in most flower shops, natural food shops and craft shops. First strip the plant with cotton string and then hang in it downwards as near to the wall.
The leaves can tolerate some water, but they’ll quickly get moldy if they’re continuously soaked, so change it weekly.
Include a couple of drops of eucalyptus oil to your homemade deodorant, tooth paste, or soap. When in doubt, make a eucalyptus-scented shower tablet and pop it in prior to showering.
