Weeks ago, I caught I nasty cold and even though I'm most definitely feeling better, this stuffy nose just won't quit! When my nose was at its stuffiness, I picked up some eucalyptus at the grocery store since it can help clear sinuses.
My grocery store carries stalks of eucalyptus that they will sell whole for about $4. I cut the branches off and tied them in bundles to dry. I took a bundle and tied it around our shower head hoping that the steam would release some of the sinus clearing power from the leaves. I found that the scent was strongest if the leaves were in the stream of water for at least a little bit.
I can say without a doubt that having the pretty eucalyptus hanging from the shower lifted my spirits and I enjoyed the fragrance, but I can't say that it cleared me right up. However, it felt like I was bringing a bit of the spa to our home so I would definitely do it again. Plus, it just feels good doing something to combat not feeling well!
