We’ve been seeing eucalyptus all over the place for a good while now and I don’t just mean on my blog/Instagram.
After a little bit of Pinterest-ing, I realised that as well as looking and smelling absolutely beautiful, it can provide many other benefits that I wasn’t even aware of. Also, koala bears buzz off of it so what’s not to love?
I decided that it was about time that I dedicated a little post to these plants of wonder, and what a better way to do that than in my ultimate happy place, The bath.
It seemed like a pretty fitting time to pull out my Liz Earle Botanist’s Cabinet that I received at Christmas in which the products are full to the brim with naturally active, special blends that are all inspired by nature.
I have spoken about Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish cleanser that contains eucalyptus and rosemary (which I absolutely adore btw) so it only seemed natural to reach for this particular brand of indulgent skincare products.
Adding fresh eucalyptus leaves to my bath is just an absolute no brainer. As a sufferer of anxiety, the steam from the bath releases essential oils from the plant that provide mental clarity, act as a mood enhancer and also aid in the art of de-stressing.
As if that wasn’t enough, eucalyptus acts as an anti-septic, helps to improve respiratory health and is an anti-inflammorty. It really is an absolute gem.
When it comes to baths, I honestly believe that how you look after yourself when you get out is just as important as whilst you’re in.
So its lightweight comfy clothes that make you feel good all the way.
Hope you’ve all had a good week so far! Thanks for reading.
