The Soothing Scent of Eucalyptus

If you're lucky enough to grow your own eucalyptus or buy from your local farmers' market, you know how special and aromatic this botanical can be. This time of year, we dry and process homegrown eucalyptus for bath and body products. It is easy to enjoy this in your home. Here are some of our favourite ways to use eucalyptus:

  1. Hang a bundle in the shower and the steam will activate the scent
  2. Dry and crumble into homemade bath salts
  3. Add leaves to a foot bath
  4. Put dried leaves in a pouch and leave in your linen closet
  5. Simmer with mint and rosemary on the stove to cleanse the air in your home
