I’m so excited to share this Eucalyptus and Lavender Shower Bundle tutorial with you today!
It’s my favorite D.I.Y. that I’ve done so far, and I had a lot of fun making it. This Eucalyptus and Lavender Shower Bundle is in my hallway bathroom. I get the best compliments whenever family and friends come over; you can smell the aroma even before walking in.
Give this a try if you’re looking to add a bit of luxury to your shower with added benefits!
*Be mindful that some people find themselves allergic to eucalyptus so please try this at your own risk. Also please don’t use this if you are pregnant, or around any pets or children*
Eucalyptus has many incredible benefits, and when you hang this up in your shower, it can help boost your immune system, clear out nasal congestion, aid in relaxation, stress relief, and help with reducing pain.
Adding the Lavender is optional. I added this to help encourage peaceful sleep and relaxation when I take showers before bed.
Lavender is known for its soothing scent and antibacterial properties and can help clear nasal congestion. Inhaling Lavender helps treat insomnia, promote relaxation, decrease fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, allergy sensitivity, eczema, nausea, and discomfort from menstrual cramps.
Where to Buy:
- Grocery Store. I picked my fresh bundles of Eucalyptus at my local Trader Joe’s. Depending on where you live, you might be able to find some at your local grocery store as well, especially in Trader Joes, Sprouts, or Whole Foods.
- Try a local florist. Sometimes florists will give you great deals on bundles of Eucalyptus and Lavender, plus it’s an excellent opportunity to support a local business.
- Order online or try a craft store. I don’t use these options for the Eucalyptus I find it’s not as fresh as I want it or it isnt the best quality. When I first tried this D.I.Y. out, I looked at some Eucalyptus from Michaels craft store, and I was not too fond of it. The bunldes were dyed blue, and the stems didn’t smell fresh. Some people commenting on my TikTok said that they got their Eucalyptus from Michaels and they liked it so if you check it out and it seems in good shape, try it out.
I also couldn’t find any Dried Lavender nearby. Usually, my local Trader Joe’s has it in stock but not this time of the year, so I found some on Amazon and took a risk. Glad I did too! I could smell the Lavender before I even opened the box, and that’s what I look for when I buy fresh herbs online, an excellent potent scent and no browning.
**Do not use this if you have pets. Eucalyptus is toxic to cats and dogs.**
**Even though the smell shouldn’t be overpowering, you should consult with your doctor before trying this if you have a condition that affects your breathing, such as asthma or COPD.**
**I don’t recommend trying this if you have children using the same shower. Due to Eucalyptus potentially irritating the skin or eyes.**
If you are allergic to Eucalyptus or try this and break out, take it down immediately. Sometimes Eucalyptus can irritate the skin and eyes, depending on sensitivity.
Some other herbs you can use are Rosemary, which has similar benefits to Eucalyptus, Rose, Chamomile, and Mint. If you are allergic to Eucalyptus, please try Rosemary instead.
This bundle will last around four weeks in your shower, and it can last longer if you take care of it by drying off the leaves if they become wet while you shower. Once this starts to lose its scent or wilts, it’s time to replace it and put up a fresh bundle.
