Create a beautiful spa atmosphere with our DIY shower bundles by hanging eucalyptus in the shower. Not only do these bundles look beautiful, the aromas fill the shower just like a beautiful steam room!
There is nothing I like more than a visit to the day spa. However, it’s not a reality to go more than a few times a year. So instead, I bring all the spa vibes home with simple and easy ideas that make my home feel zen and peaceful.
From shower bundles to essential oils, to natural cleaning products, lighting candles and always having fresh flowers inside. Those are a just a few ways I create a spa atmosphere in my home.
In my garden, I grow both lavender and eucalyptus so I can use it throughout my house and to make shower bundles.
Shower bundles are simple to make and look so beautiful hanging in the shower. You’ll need fresh eucalyptus and lavender to make these, which you can usually find at a local grocery store or farmers market.
What Are Shower Bundles?
Shower bundles are made with fresh eucalyptus and lavender which are both plants that help promote relaxation. They are hung near the shower head and the hot shower steam releases their aromatherapy powers.
How to Make Shower Bundles
- Rubber Band
Bundle fresh eucalyptus and lavender together, keeping the bottom stems together.
Cut the stems so they’re even, leaving about 2″ of stem.
Tie a rubber-band around the stems to hold them in place.
Next, wrap twine around the rubber band to hide it. Leave a larger loop out to hang over a shower head.
Then tie the twine next to the stems to close the loop.
How to Hang Eucalyptus in Shower
Use twine to make a loop to hang the eucalyptus in the shower. Simply, place the loop over the shower head so the bundle hangs below.
The shower steam will release the natural oils and fragrance. It also looks beautiful hung in the shower.
