How to Do a Eucalyptus Steam (+ why it works!)

Here’s how to do a Eucalyptus steam safely, so you get all the benefits of the essential oil without having to be concerned.

Eucalyptus is one of the most effective essential oils for issues like colds and coughs. It’s a strong natural immunity booster. (I’ll explain why it works so well after I share how to do a Eucalyptus steam.)

Steam itself has such therapeutic effects, too—it surrounds us, cradling us in nourishing warmth, helping us relax and release tension. Adding a little essential oil to the steam deepens its benefits.

But you don’t have to get in the shower or have a steamy sauna. You can do a “mini-steam” right in your kitchen!

First, fill a bowl with warm, steamy water. Be careful not to burn yourself.
