If you want to do something soothing after a long, stressful day, hopping into your tub for a relaxing bath sounds like a good idea. But if you don't have a tub, taking a hot, steamy shower with a eucalyptus plant provides an equally luxurious spa experience at home.
In fact, many people claim that the minty, refreshing smell of eucalyptus can help relieve upper respiratory issues by loosening up mucus to clear your airways. That's why you'll find eucalyptus oil infused in many over-the-counter chest rubs and used in essential oil diffusers and air-purifying humidifiers. When you place some fresh eucalyptus in your shower, the steam releases the essential oils in the plant, potentially helping to ease congestion and relieve stress.
The good news is that you can get a fresh eucalyptus bundle for your shower on Etsy for just 30 percent off at $25.19. You can choose from three different sizes, including a small bunch, a regular bunch, and an extra-large bunch.

Once you have the fresh eucalyptus, you simply tie the stems together with a rubber band or a natural twine and hang them over your shower head. You want to hang them on the back of your shower head, though, so they don't get wet, which can cause the leaves to fall. Some people even like tying them on their shower racks.
One Etsy customer writes, "This has been such a great addition to my shower. The first week I had it, the smell was very strong, but my fiance who always has sinus problems loves it. Quality is very great and I might just buy again!"
Another Etsy customer raves, "I'm so surprised this was the small batch! I even had plenty to share with my neighbor. I've definitely noticed a difference in my mood after my morning showers. It's like having an in-house spa!"
