Eucalyptus?

I just received an order of some natural goodies and was given a sample of eucalyptus. What on earth can I use it for?

    Hi Naptural!
    I don't know of any hair-related uses for eucalyptus, but I know that it is great for clearing nasal and chest congestion. You could use it to make bath salts or body scrubs. It blends well with lavender, tea tree, mint, rosemary, and sage. You could combine it with some of these EOs in a carrier oil or butter and make your own Vicks vapor rub;-).

    u can also sprinkle 2-3 drops in your hot shower to get your own personal steam treatment. its great to open up your nose, lungs and pores and it leaves you relaxed.

    I realized after I posted that I forgot to clarify that these are eucalyptus leaves. Still stumped

    I don't know if you have a significant other, but....here is a treatment we gave at the spa I used to work at

    lie down in dark, relaxing environment
    have your SO place a hot sheet (thin preferably) on your back
    then have the leaves placed on the sheet
    next place a hot steaming towel on top of the leaves and have him/her cover you with a blanket


    it'll open your lungs right on up
    it's relax and rejuvenating at the same time.

    Eucalyptus oil can also be used to soothe aching muscles or headaches.
