Hanging Shower Eucalyptus
Whenever people ask me what my favorite flower is, I always say eucalyptus. Ok, I know it’s not a flower, but it’s my favorite. My wedding bouquet was just straight up eucalyptus. The best part about it is that it not only looks pretty and smells pretty, but it has some amazing perks that are super beneficial for your health!
Eucalyptus has antibacterial properties, helps boost your immune system, and helps with joint pain as well. On top of those awesome benefits, it’s also super relaxing. In fact, it’s one of the first ingredients in any natural thing that promotes a better night sleep. I personally love diffusing eucalyptus oil at night in the diffuser next to my bed.
I recently heard of people adding fresh eucalyptus in their shower, and I absolutely loved that idea. I decided to try it for myself, and wanted to share with you this quick little DIY on turning your shower into the most relaxing place in your home.
You’ll need a piece of jute string. I like to half this piece and tie a knot around the top part of the bunch once.
Once you tie that first knot, you’ll wrap the remainder around the stems. Once you have a few inches left, you’ll tuck that through the wrapped area leaving out one single loop.
Use this loop to hang from the top of your shower head, as much out of the water as you can.
I’m pretty obsessed with this because not only does it have so many health benefits, it looks so beautiful, and makes taking a shower feel even more relaxing than it already is.
The eucalyptus will last about 3-4 weeks and should be replaced after that. Trader Joes always has a great price on eucalyptus. This bunch cost me only $2.99.
