treat yourself: the benefits of a eucalyptus shower
I've never really been a big fan of spas. I would honestly just rather spend time relaxing at home in my own bathtub and save a few bucks! That being said, I am a fan of relaxation and think it's important to take time to slow down and reflect.
The bathtub/shower is an excellent place to do that. How many of us have had brilliant shower thoughts!? It's a thing.
I went to my local flower shop and for 5 dollars got a bundle of eucalyptus. I used some twine to tie it together and hung it behind my shower head - super easy.
Once the fresh eucalyptus steams from the hot shower, the beneficial oils in the leaves are activated and released.
Here are some of the benefits:
- Eucalyptus helps to kill germs in the air, which aids in fighting off colds and flues
- Eucalyptol is an active ingredient found in the plant that is believed to help treat respiratory issues.
- The oils in the plant help stimulate mental activity (shower ideas) and also help promote relaxtion
Enjoy your luxurious shower! You can keep the plant hung up in the shower for up to a week.
