Create a bunch and tie it with raffia or jute.

Hang the bunch in your shower, behind the shower head and out of the shower stream.

Turn your shower on to very hot water and let the steam release the oils in the eucalyptus. It’s key to allow the hot water to activate the oil in the branches.

Wait a couple of minutes and then turn the water down to a safe temperature before you hop in and enjoy the many benefits of this great plant.

Our shipments come in fresh on Tuesdays and Fridays, so be sure to swing by and grab a couple of stems, a bundle or a bunch to hang in your shower.
