What is the Eucalyptus?
Eucalyptus is an evergreen tree native to Australia and it has been commonly used for medicinal purposes for centuries, as its leaves contain strong essential oils that have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory as well as analgesic properties.
Eucalyptus leaves are often used to treat respiratory problems such as coughs, colds, and sinusitis, and can also be used to relieve stress, anxiety and muscle tension.
Fresh Eucalyptus Bouquet
Our eucalyptus bouquet is a collection of fresh eucalyptus stems that come wrapped in eco-friendly brown kraft paper and jute string, measuring approximately 40cm in length. The end of the stems is wrapped in fresh, moist sphagnum and biodegradable cling film, ensuring that the plant stays fresh for longer.
You can keep the moss and cling film around the end stems when hanging the bouquet under the shower to provide water to the stems and keep it fresh for longer under the shower.
How Does it Work?
The eucalyptus bouquet works by releasing its essential oils when exposed to steam and water, creating an invigorating and aromatic experience in your shower. The steam from the shower helps to release the oils from the leaves, and the scent of eucalyptus fills the air, creating a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom.
You can increase the amount of essential oil released from the leaves by simply crumpling them in your hands! This can help you get more out of your Eucalyptus and enhance its fragrance and therapeutic benefits.
How to Use?
Using the eucalyptus bouquet in your shower is simple, just hang the bouquet from your showerhead, making sure that it is in direct contact with the water. You can use the jute string included with your bouquet when purchased from us to hang it.
As the water runs over the eucalyptus, it will release its essential oils, creating an invigorating and aromatic experience. To keep the plant fresh for longer do not remove the cling film with mist moss, you can also water the moss when it dries out by simply unwrapping the cling film, soaking the moss, and wrapping again around the stem.
