Hello friends! We’re back from a short trip to an indoor Bluegrass festival/conference. We had a GREAT time – but staying in a dry, overheated hotel in February, and staying up way too late pickin’ & socializing with about 500 of our best friends has taken its toll…
We’re down with colds here today. I have broken out the eucalyptus leaves and added them to some hot water for the fresh, fragrant and therapeutic steam (not for drinking!). A little bit goes a long way here in our tiny cabin!
I have read online that many people skip the leaves entirely and simply diffuse eucalyptus essential oil when they are sick (or even when they are not), for that fresh, spa-like ambience!
Please note: While there are some eucalyptus teas & cold remedies commercially available, be careful – Eucalyptus leaves should not be ingested in large amounts by adults and they are toxic to children & pets.
Thanks for checking in folks. We’re taking good care here – I’m sure we’ll be feeling better next week!
