Skinny Tips: DIY Eucalyptus Steam

Getting over a cold or have congested sinuses? In need of a visit to the steam room, but don’t have the time or money to head to the spa? No problem! Hang a bundle of eucalyptus from your shower curtain rod, turn up the hot water, and voila! You’ve got your own home-spa!

 

The heat and steam help to release the herb’s essential oils, which can ease congestion.  Plus, the steam combined with the fresh eucalyptus smell will make you feel like you went to the spa without stepping out of your own home!

 

Find eucalyptus at your local craft store or flower shop!  It’s an easy and inexpensive way to “clear your head!”
