Why Hang Eucalyptus in Your Shower?

Why Hang Eucalyptus in Your Shower? 

Hanging Eucalyptus in your shower is a way of enjoying the benefits of aromatherapy—using natural scents to enhance your physical and mental well-being.

The practice of hanging eucalyptus in the shower became popular in recent years, thanks to social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. 

Many people shared their experiences of how eucalyptus enhanced their shower experience and improved their mood and health.

Hanging eucalyptus in your shower is like using an essential oil diffuser. 

When you put essential oils into a diffuser, the steam breaks down the oil into smaller, breathable molecules. The steam from your hot shower does the same to the eucalyptus leaves.

What are the Benefits of Eucalyptus in Your Shower?

Hanging eucalyptus in your shower is a beautiful and natural way to decorate your bathroom and a great way to reap the benefits of this plant's essential oils. 

Here are some benefits you can expect:


Eucalyptus has a soothing and calming effect on your mind and body. 

It can help you unwind after a long day, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve your mood.

Respiratory relief

Eucalyptus is known for clearing congestion, easing coughs, and soothing sore throats. 

The steam from the shower helps release the eucalyptus oil into the air, creating a natural decongestant and expectorant.


Eucalyptus has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that can help with various skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. 

It can also moisturize and cleanse your skin, leaving it soft and smooth.

Immune system boost

Eucalyptus has antiviral and antimicrobial properties that can help fight off infections and boost your immune system. 

It can also stimulate white blood cells and increase blood circulation, improving your overall health.

Pain relief

Eucalyptus has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve pain and inflammation in your muscles and joints. 

It can also relax your tense and sore muscles, especially after a workout or a long day.

Mental clarity

Eucalyptus has a refreshing and stimulating effect on your brain and nervous system. 

It can help improve your focus, memory, and concentration, as well as enhance your creativity and problem-solving skills.

How to Hang Eucalyptus in Your Shower

Hanging eucalyptus in your shower is incredibly easy. 

All you need is a bunch of fresh or dried eucalyptus branches, some twine or string, and a pair of scissors. 

Follow these steps: 

  1. Cut the stems of the eucalyptus branches to your desired length. You can use one or more bunches depending on how full you want your shower bouquet to be.
  2. Tie the stems together with twine or string, leaving some extra length for hanging.
    Find a spot in your shower where the eucalyptus will not get wet directly from the shower head. You can hang it from the shower rod, the faucet, or a hook on the wall. 
    The heat and moisture from the shower will activate the eucalyptus oils and release their aroma into the air.
  3. Enjoy your aromatic shower! 
    You'll feel like you're in a natural sauna, surrounded by the refreshing scent of eucalyptus.

How Long Does Eucalyptus Last in the Shower?

The lifespan of your eucalyptus bundle depends on several factors, such as:

  • The quality and freshness of the eucalyptus.
  • The temperature and humidity of your shower.
  • The frequency and duration of your showers.
  • The exposure to sunlight and air.

Generally, fresh eucalyptus can last for about a month in the shower, while dried eucalyptus can last for up to three months. 

You'll know it's time to replace your bundle when the leaves lose colour and scent.

If you want to extend the life of your eucalyptus in the shower, try these tips:

  • Mist it with water every few days to keep it hydrated.
  • Rotate it occasionally to expose different sides to the steam.
  • Add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to boost its fragrance.
