Eucalyptus is one of the most versatile evergreens that is used in a multitude of ways, ranging from health to decor.
Many Uses of Eucalyptus
Did you know that there are over 400 different species of eucalyptus? A fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia, eucalyptus is used as an ingredient in many products. It is used to reduce symptoms of coughs, colds, and congestion. It is also included in some creams and ointments aimed at relieving muscle and joint pain. Eucalyptus is also found in some dental products and is also effective as an insect repellant to keep mosquitoes away.
But my favorite use of eucalyptus is in home decor.
Eucalyptus as Decor
1.) Lay stems on a mantel
The leaves look so pretty laying on a mantel with one or two other objects. Drape a few leaves over the side for a layering effect.
2.) Added to a Vase
Adding eucalyptus leaves into a vase with roses or your favorite flower is another great way to add it to your Fall decor.
3.) Make a Table Runner
Eucalyptus is great for making a simple Fall table runner.

I like the simplicity with the white roses and eucalyptus –
And the side layering idea is clever way to add this aesthetic and freshness
Oh and I think some eucalyptus can be swallows – like we have essential oils and take it under tongue for lymph support and than there are those cough drops with it in it…. so I think some of the essential oil is edible – hmmm
Ok interesting. Didn’t know that….maybe in it’s raw form it shouldn’t be ingested? I’ll have to look into that, thanks!
My pleasure – and when we were growing up my mother brought us to her gym on family day and they had a eucalyptus room! So I bet that decorating with eucalyptus has health perks for air quality and maybe “earthing” ions 😉
I believe you are very right there my friend. Happy Thursday!
I love all the ways you’ve styled this eucalyptus – especially the white roses and pumpkins – plus it smells good too! 🙂 Thanks for all the great tips!
Such as easy, pretty and inexpensive way to add a little beauty to our homes 🙂 Thanks for visiting Barbara.
I don’t think we have eucalyptus leaves here, except sometimes at Christmas for decorating urns. I loved the table runner idea.
Isn’t the table runner a quick and fun idea? I mainly look for eucalyptus is the Fall, but I believe certain stores carry it year round but I could be mistaken. Thanks for visiting Joni!
