And, it has the added bonus of looking pretty. I love plants, especially eucalyptus in the shower!
I want plants in every room of the house; I especially love an excuse to add greenery to the bathroom. Since introducing bee pollen, I’m having fewer and fewer sinus headaches.
When they do strike, a steamy eucalyptus leaves shower immediately makes me feel better.

First, you’ll want to get a bouquet of fresh eucalyptus. I bought mine at the farmer’s market for $5.00. You should be able to find it at a florist or at your grocery store.
I chatted with the vendor for a while. She said eucalyptus, in the shower, is good for a month before it starts to dry out.
You can also dry the eucalyptus plant and keep it in a vase indefinitely. I had too much for a shower bundle, so half is currently being used as decoration in my living room. The other half is proudly hanging in the shower.
frequently asked questions
how do you cut fresh eucalyptus?
Eucalyptus is incredibly sticky so be prepared! It’s also really difficult to cut.
It’s much easier to snap it, then try to cut it where it’s been snapped. I actually used a knife to sever the stalks.
how do you hold the eucalyptus leaves together?
You’ll want to gather a handful of branches roughly the same size and tie a knot around them. I used some organic cotton twine I’ve had for ages.
Once the life of your cotton twine has come to an end don’t forget to compost it!
I cut a long piece and kept wrapping it to make it look more like a bouquet. Each time I went around, I pulled the string tighter. The pieces can get wily, and I wanted them to be more streamlined.
how do I use the eucalyptus plant?
Just tie it to the base of your shower head! You don’t want water to run down the leaves so make sure you place it out of the direct water stream.
