Summer is here, and the weather patterns are shifting—Mother nature appears to be battling back. And we are feeling the effects, mentally and physically—sinus pain, mood swings, ear infections, and head congestion. As for myself, these symptoms have an impact on my mood. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to my hot showers and warm baths—showers relax the body, at the same time arousing and stimulating the mind.
Steamy Eucalyptus showers
Recently, I’ve noticed that ancient holistic-healing remedies have resurfaced—herbs, oils, and plants have become the solutions to obtaining a healthy and balanced life. So, a few months ago, I decided to switch up my nightcaps with eucalyptus aromatherapy sessions.
Eucalyptus showers have become my healing method— a soothing steamy Eucalyptus shower which releases calm and healing elements. Steamy Eucalyptus showers are quite pleasant, an excellent aromatherapy experience, and besides, plants make people— happy, healing the mind, body, and spirit.
Benefits of the Eucalyptus Plant
The Eucalyptus plant is a super healing plant and defined as one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing evergreens. A native of Australia, this healing plant has some astonishing benefits. The Eucalyptus plant produces oil, tannins, and flavonoids. Eucalyptus leaves are steam distilled—extracting a colorless liquid and creating a sweet-wood aroma.
Eucalyptus leaves produce flavonoids; scientists have found that certain flavonoids have antihistamine, antimicrobial, memory- and even mood-enhancing properties.
Tannins (primarily found in skin care and cosmetic products).
Tannins are found commonly in the bark of trees, wood, leaves, buds, stems, fruits, seeds, roots, and plant galls. Tannins are used in medicine supporting our health. Tannins are astringents that tighten pores and draw out liquids.
Did you know that witch hazel contained a source of tannin?
The Eucalyptus plant helps symptoms of colds, congestion, relieving muscle pain, respiratory infections, and improves our moods. If you are seeking a clearer mind and or a natural breathing treatment, try incorporating Eucalyptus Spa Treatments into your weekly routine.
