To jump on board this trend simply gather an assortment of fresh Eucalyptus leaves, tie the stems together and secure it behind the shower head, out of direct water stream.

Then, simply turn on your shower and enjoy all health benefits. A combination of steam and heat from the shower will help the greenery to release essential oils. 

A eucalyptus shower will also help to give your home a spa-like feel – providing you with an extra boost first thing in the morning if you’re feeling sluggish.

If you’re coming down with a cold, the leaves will also help to clear your sinuses and make you feel refreshed for the day.

Others have highlighted that the decorating trick not only looks good, but will make you feel even better. 

Give a eucalyptus shower a go at home, and be prepared to instantly feel calmer and more refreshed. The plant should last at least a month, too.
