Fancy a little trick to amazingly special showers that also double as a cold remedy? It’s all in a bundle of fresh or dried eucalyptus – promise! Simply hang it from your shower rod or the base of the shower head fixture and enjoy the most relaxing steam shower of your life. This simple trick works also a lot like the menthol shower tablets designed to help open your airways when you’re sick or having a bad cold. The best part is that as soon as you open the hot water, the steam will rise up towards the eucalyptus, filling your bathroom with the most refreshing, relaxing minty-fresh scent. Our friends are hooked after they spotted it in our bathroom :)Would you try it?
Btw: I think it would also work great with other herbs like lavender or rosemary or even mint. What do you think?
P.S: You can buy fresh eucalyptus in the floral section of most craft stores around your city.
P.P.S: Another nifty use of eucalyptus oil and the perfect fall potpourri:)
