There are over 500 species of eucalyptus, mostly native to Australia, Tasmania and other neighboring islands. Eucalyptus plants are known for their distinct, aromatic scent and the leaves have been used for centuries by Australian Aboriginals to make oils that are said to have potent antifungal and antibacterial properties. The oils are also frequently used to soothe and treat bronchitis, asthma, common chest colds and other respiratory ailments. Given its potent medicinal uses, it’s not surprising to learn that the eucalyptus plant is a symbol of healing and protection.
In addition to its lovely rounded leaves and aromatic scent, eucalyptus is prized for its long vase life. Stripping off any leaves that fall below the water line, regularly trimming the stems (underwater on an angle) and providing them with fresh water will ensure your eucalyptus bunches last. Also be sure to keep them away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat or cold.
