In the last couple years, I've been spending more time at home than usual. I'm sure you can relate. In an effort to maximize my space and make it as comfortable as possible, I've been adding little things here and there that give my home that special something.

One of my favorite upgrades I've made is hanging eucalyptus in my shower. Once a month, I add some fresh eucalyptus leaves to my basket when I'm grocery shopping. I hang it from my shower head, and it has leveled up my entire shower routine.

The hot steam from your shower releases the eucalyptus oil, which has been said to provide stress relief, muscle relaxation, and respiratory health benefits. It's a subtle, simple change that can make your bathroom feel like a spa.

Lather. Breathe deep. Rinse. Repeat.
