Something yummy for the lungs

I love the smell of eucalyptus and fondly remember the days when I was a kid putting Vicks under my nose when I had a cold. This was so comforting. My husband recommended I buy some for my cough. Instead, I bought pure eucalyptus essential oil to add to my bath. But then I discovered a better way. I keep that little bottle in easy reach and sprinkle a few drops on the shower floor when I am showering. It gives me (and my lungs) a real boost and makes for a wonderful showering experience. But, please remember – DO NOT take eucalyptus oil by mouth unless your doctor tells you to. Ingesting eucalyptus oil can be dangerous.
