Eucalyptus-2! (700x1050) Resized

Eucalyptus typically serves as filler for bouquets and arrangements, but I have found three new ways to utilize this beautiful greenery.

Minimal decor: Eucalyptus can create a simple statement on its own. It would be great to place them into a beautiful vase for the dinner table or nightstand.

Natural aromatherapy: If you hang a bundle of eucalyptus to your shower head, the steam from the hot water will create an amazing aroma-therapeutic solution for a sore throat or sore muscles.

Fire starter: I discovered this trick as an accident when I was trying to start a fire without any lighter fluid or starter logs. I happened to have some dried eucalyptus and I quickly realized the oil from the branches created the same sort of effect.

Price: $4
