Summer Aromatic DIY
Summer in Arizona means a lot of hot, sunny days. Today we’re sharing a fabulous, organic way to stay fresh in the heat — with an aromatic eucalyptus shower using fresh eucalyptus stems!
Eucalyptus is known for its refreshing, distinctive fragrance, but you may be surprised to discover that it also offers many health benefits. Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Greek, and other European styles of medicine have all incorporated it into the treatment of a range of conditions for thousands of years: infections, fever, upset stomach, coughs and respiratory tract infections, asthma, acne, rheumatism, wounds, burns, and fever just to name a few.
To create your all natural aromatic shower, stop by Cactus Flower and pick up a few full stems of eucalyptus leaves. Use a length of string or bakers twine to tightly secure the eucalyptus stems together at the bottom. Then, use another length of twine to secure them to your shower head. You want them to be as close to the wall as possible to avoid direct contact with the water.
Once exposed to the steam, the eucalyptus will be “activated” and start to release its beneficial oil and that signature scent we love to smell.
