Thread: Do any of you use eucalyptus leaves?

    Just wondering if any of you use eucalyptus leaves (fresh or dried) and what you do with them.

    We have a large tree that we are constantly trimming and discarding the trims. Yesterday my son reminded me that we used to put them in a vaporizer 45 years ago when the children were subject to such ills.

    That reminded me that we have soaked them in glycerin and used in wreaths and also dried them previously.

    It ended that we saved a large armful yesterday. I am willing to share (you pay postage only) for anyone that especially wants some.

    Just tell me how you want them packaged. Some have asked me for just the leaves, which they sew into bags (fresh or dried) and put in with their fabrics, closets, under furniture etc. Have to be bagged so that pets don't chew on anything or the oils don't get on fabrics, etc. But, this does repel fleas, insects, etc. and also smells good for a while. Or if you are congested you can simmer a handful of leaves in water and smell the vapors (Don't get too close to the steam. No burns allowed!)

    PM if you want some and how many, etc.

    Wishing all of you and those you love a very Merry Christmas!

    Yes, according to this link:

    A man stopped here once and asked if he could have a cutting to root for his wife. I always wondered how that turned out.
