Eucalyptus is a best-seller for a very good reason. This versatile essential oil both relaxes and revitalizes, making it ideal for your morning ritual. Here are three ways to use it.

Shower Spa Moment

If the aroma of Eucalyptus reminds you of a spa, it’s because it is commonly used in steam rooms; its herbal properties help promote deep breathing and relaxation. Have yourself a personal spa moment in your morning shower by putting three drops of Eucalyptus directly into your tub. The warm water will hit the oil and give you a quick pick-me-up—not to mention make your bathroom smell glorious.

Revitalizing Diffuser Aroma

Add 15 drops of Eucalyptus to a diffuser with 10 drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil. The combination is fresh, invigorating, and energizing—perfect to pair with your morning Zoom calls or your getting-ready routine.

Refreshing Towel Spray

Combine 20 drops of Eucalyptus with three cups of water in a spray bottle. Shake gently to combine and then spray down your towel once you get out of the shower. It will keep it smelling and feeling fresh between washes.

Now go take on the day.
