“Self-care” is definitely a popular buzzword that’s floating around the internet recently, but there really is some truth to being sure that you are taking care of yourself mind, body, and soul. How can we make that happen in such a fast-paced environment that we live in? Are we supposed to take a trip to the spa every week for an hour-long massage? Get 12 hours of sleep every night? Hire a personal chef to make sure all our meals are healthy and balanced?
No, not necessarily. Some of those things are impractical and impossible! One of our favorite ways to practice self-care is to turn an everyday shower experience into a spa-like experience. With our Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMists, this is easy, effective, and an inexpensive way to make self-care a priority!

With its fragrant scent and beneficial aromatherapeutic properties, the eucalyptus plant and eucalyptus oil makes the perfect decorating staple for your healthy home.
Eucalyptus oil has been used for centuries for its many health-boosting properties as an all-natural healing agent, a non-toxic antimicrobial and antibacterial cleaning agent, beauty product, antiseptic, and so much more.
Bringing eucalyptus into your home can help reduce seasonal allergies, purify the air in your home, and act as an all-natural energizer and stimulant.
Eucalyptus essential oil is effective for treating a number of respiratory problems including cold, cough, runny nose, sore throat, asthma, nasal congestion, bronchitis, and sinusitis. Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant in nature.
No wonder this plant and its oil is a beautiful yet healthy addition to your home! As a decorative staple, the plant is versatile, beautiful in both its fresh and dried states. Pair it with our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist and you’ll have a relaxing, inviting, and nourishing home atmosphere you crave to be in.
How to Decorate Your Home with Eucalyptus
1. As a garland
Eucalyptus branches are an inexpensive yet elegant and calming way to enhance the atmosphere of your home. Arrange a few boughs above your fireplace or down your dining room table and be sure to spritz regularly with our Pure Eucalyptus Oil Mist to keep the scent fragrant for extended periods of time.
2. As a centerpiece in vases around the home
Arrange a few stems of varying heights in small, medium, and large vases throughout your home. Style on tables, counter tops, and bookshelves next to your favorite candles.
3. As a wreath
Eucalyptus is versatile all year round, pairing well with soft pink florals in the spring, muted tones in the winter, and bright, energetic colors in the fall and summer! Use as a wreath in your home or on your front door all year long.
4. In your shower and guest bathrooms
You’ve likely seen dried eucalyptus used in showers and steam rooms, and for good reason! Eucalyptus provides many health benefits for inner healing and improved respiratory function when inhaled. Hang dried eucalyptus branches upside down from your shower head to beautify your bathroom, and be sure to use our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist for a transformative steam room experience right in your own home.
5. Spray, spray, spray!
Be sure to use our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist throughout your home to pull the atmosphere together and create an aromatherapeutic experience every time you step through your door!

If you’re having a long week at the office or feel more stressed than usual, here’s a friendly reminder to make time for self-care.
Self-care is any activity that, when done intentionally, helps you take care of your emotional, mental, and physical health. While self-care preferences vary from person to person, here are a few of our favorite ideas!
Turn your bathroom into a sauna.
Steam up your bathroom by running a hot bath or shower with a spritz of Mint-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist (or Menthol-Infused ShowerMist for a refreshing mojito scent). Lounge around in your favorite robe and let the fresh steam help you relax.
Ditch the screens and read a good book.
When’s the last time that you sat down and read a novel or magazine? If it’s been so long that you don’t remember, this tip is for you! Grab that book you’ve been meaning to finish and read a few chapters.
Wind down with some slow stretches.
Grab your yoga mat and enjoy some gentle stretches like Child’s Pose, Knees to Chest, or Reclined Twist. Use our Eucalyptus + Lavender Yoga Mat cleaning spray after you’re done to keep your mat smelling fresh and clean.
Head to bed early and get some good rest.
It’s tempting to stay up late to catch up with your friends on Facebook or the watch the TV shows you missed this week, but why not turn the lights out early and get a few more hours of sleep? Netflix will be there when you wake up – we promise.

Is the pollen in the air sending your nose into sneezing fits? Is your throat feeling itchy and dry? Spring may be beautiful, but allergies are not! Here are our best tips to have you feeling better in no time.
Use Eucalyptus Oil to reduce sinus inflammation.
If your sinuses are stuffed up, you can use Eucalyptus Oil to clear your inflamed airways. Spritz some in a hot, steamy shower or apply a few drops to your chest to keep your sinuses clear all day.
Use Menthol to relieve coughing and congestion.
Add Menthol Crystals to a pot of boiling hot water, lean over it (very carefully), and cover your head with a towel. Breathe the steam in deeply for as long as you can stand the heat to soothe your sore throat. You can also melt the crystals in a warmer to diffuse the menthol through the rest of your home.
Diffuse Lavender Oil at night to sleep better.
Lavender Oil is also known to reduce inflammation and is a natural antihistamine. Since it has soothing, mildly sedative properties, we recommend diffusing it to get better rest at night when you’ve been coughing or are struggling to stay asleep.

Tea Tree-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil Showermist – The Lutzka Blend.
You may know a thing or two about tea tree oil. Also known as melaleuca, the oil comes from the leaves of a small tree native to Australia, and it’s been used for centuries by the indigenous people of Australia as traditional medicine. They taught us how to inhale it for coughs and colds, and how to apply it directly to skin for a wide variety of germ-killing and healing uses.
Nowadays, tea tree oil is considered to be a “medicine cabinet in a bottle” since the chemicals contained within it have been shown to have antibiotic, antifungal, antiseptic, expectorant and antiviral properties. From hand sanitizer to acne treatments to a household cleaner, tea tree oil is one of those oils that can have a huge positive impact on your daily life when used properly.
We combined it with our Pure Eucalyptus Oil to pack a one-two holistic punch. Both of these powerhouse oils have similar germ-fighting properties and when used together in your shower, mold & mildew stains disappear with a spray that smells clean, fresh and crisp.
We have to admit though that the creation of this blend came about a little differently than our other infusions. EuroSpa Aromatics is always developing new infusions, but in this case, tea tree came to us via pro skateboarder, Greg Lutzka.
Now, we realize that you may not know a thing or two about Greg, or why we’d be partnering with a skate pro for a Eucalyptus Oil infusion. Greg sat down with us to help explain how this all came about.
Greg Lutzka Quick Facts:
- 2-time Gold medalist at X-Games
- Only skater to date to have won 3 times at Tampa Pro, “The grand old dame of professional skate contests”
- Started pro career when he was first sponsored at the age of 15
- Career includes 22 Gold Medals in pro skateboarding contests
- Enjoying life in Southern California after moving there at age 18 to pursue a pro career
- Currently has over 1 million followers across his @greglutzka Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube profiles
EA: How did you come to know and love EuroSpa Aromatics ShowerMist?
GL: I was going to the sauna at the gym, and people used eucalyptus sprays in the gym and basically I really liked the smell of eucalyptus. So I went on Amazon and typed in “eucalyptus sprays” and EuroSpa came up as number one with five-star reviews. So I reached out to them and that’s how I got connected to them.
EA: So you’re an essential oil fan — how and why did you start using oils?
GL: I kind of started using them because of going to the gym where people had them and used them. For Christmas, my mom got me a diffuser for my house and I just like the smell of it in my house. I really like the smell of the essential oils and the effects that they give, and the way your body reacts to them. And eucalyptus is a natural disinfectant, which I think is pretty cool too.
EA: How do essential oils fit into your lifestyle?
GL: I mainly use it in the shower in the morning. It wakes you up and gets you going. Now with EuroSpa’s lavender blend, I’ll spray that in my room at night that does work to help me sleep. When I go to the sauna and steam room at the gym, I use the Pure [Eucalyptus Oil] and now the Tea Tree infusion. It kind of smells weird in there so every time I go in there I spray the ShowerMist. It doesn’t take much, just two or three sprays and it just cleans it up in there. And you can just see that people are really happy when I come in there with the spray. I also have Eucalyptus candles because I’m just a big fan of Eucalyptus and I really like the smell.
EA: There are a few different Eucalyptus Oil brands out there on the market and in spas and fitness centers, so why is EuroSpa your favorite?
GL: I went to Mother’s Market [for the oils] and originally I made my own mix and the sprayer got all clogged up. They were too thick and didn’t work too well with that sprayer. So I went to Amazon and looked up Eucalyptus Oil spray. I found EuroSpa and they had five stars. Then I went to Instagram and saw they were promoting pretty much every day and very active on social, which I thought was pretty cool. And then the product is awesome. I don’t know how they do it exactly, but it’s not super thick so it sprays really nice. Then when I met them, they were really nice people and it was just really cool to sit down and talk with them about the eucalyptus sprays.
EA: How did creating this blend come about?
GL: The signature blend came about because they didn’t have a Tea Tree version yet. I really like Tea Tree. And I really like the smell of Eucalyptus. We thought that this signature blend would be a great way for me to promote my experience and the difference it’s made in my life.
EA: In creating this blend with EuroSpa, what do you hope your fans and followers will learn or take away from it? What’s your message when it comes to using Eucalyptus and Tea Tree Oils in everyday life?
GL: For me, what I’m getting from it, is that the sauna helped change my life to the point where I got one in my house now. The essential oils help in the sauna to clean it out and after the sauna, I feel the difference in my body, on my skin, the way I sleep. My mind feels clear, I let go of everything from the day, all the stress, and it just regenerates you. The sprays also help wake me up in the morning and help me sleep better at night.
What I want to give others is the experience that I get from using the sauna and the sprays, and seeing what I do and how they help me. I think that’s the most important thing for me. My friend and roommate recommended the sauna to me and said it would change my life. If he never told me about it, I would have never gone and experienced it. I saw too that this made a huge difference for guys that I look up to. And if it made a huge difference for them and is a great experience for me, I think that it’s worth promoting and everyone should know about it.
Our Tea Tree-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist – The Lutzka Blend is now available in our store and on Amazon, in both 8oz and gym bag-size 2oz spray bottles.
Lavender Oil is one of the most well-known essential oils in the world. And why wouldn’t it be? It smells like heaven on earth and is so versatile! Here are our top three favorite benefits of this amazing oil:
Lavender Oil has incredible therapeutic properties.
When used aromatically, Lavender Oil has been known to reduce feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression. Struggle with insomnia? Lavender Oil can help you with that too! Spritz a little in the shower or diffuse before bedtime to help your body naturally wind down and sink into a deep, relaxed sleep.
Lavender Oil is the perfect match for your beauty routine.
Did you know that Lavender Oil can be added to several of your beauty regimens to boost their effectiveness? Add a few drops to your mascara to naturally lengthen lashes or to your favorite facial moisturizer to bring the glow back to your skin and help reduce acne. You can even massage it into your scalp during a shower to restore hair health.
Lavender Oil is great for pain relief, especially tension headaches.
Many people swear by using Peppermint Oil for headaches and migraines. When applied topically, Peppermint Oil (blended with a carrier oil) gives a cooling effect and stimulates blood flow to the area and reduces inflammation. Adding just a couple drops of Lavender Oil to the Peppermint blend can produce a mild sedative effect, helping muscles and tension relax – which is what may have been causing the headache in the first place.
