What is a eucalyptus shower
No, you do not have to make a broom from eucalyptus and even soak it in hot water. It is enough to hang several branches of fresh eucalyptus on the shower head: you can buy it in floristic salons – eucalyptus is often used to decorate bouquets. It is enough to buy 6-7 branches and change them every 2 months.
This is necessary to get the desired effect: the evaporation of aromatic essential oil. When heated, the leaves give off ether, the molecules of which mix with the vapor molecules and quickly spread through the bathroom.
What is useful for eucalyptus?
In the composition of eucalyptus essential oil, vitamin C and tannins – they have an antiseptic property and help to quickly overcome a cold. A warm shower with eucalyptus is especially effective if you feel a stuffy nose and a sore throat.
Also, essential oil positively affects the beauty of the skin and hair due to the vitamins B1, B2, E, cinnamon and coumaric acid it contains – blood circulation, metabolism are accelerated, hair becomes shiny and dandruff is eliminated. Eucalyptus shower is useful after training – the muscles relax, joint pains are relieved.
Contraindications for the eucalyptus shower
- At risk are people with cardiovascular diseases: hypertension, tachycardia, varicose veins.
- You can not take such a shower to pregnant and lactating children up to 7 years old.
- Make sure that you are not allergic to eucalyptus oil: squeeze the leaf so that the juice stands out from it and attach it to the skin. If there is no itching and redness, then you have no allergies.
How often can I take a shower
If you have no contraindications, then you can take a shower 1-2 times a day. We do not recommend staying in a closed bathroom for longer than 15 minutes: the aroma of eucalyptus is strong enough to cause a headache or malaise. If after taking a shower you feel unwell, give up the procedure, replacing it with an aroma lamp or candles.
