Eucalyptus Power

I bought a bunch of Eucalyptus branches from Berkeley Bowl yesterday. I use them to encourage spiritual cleansing and to clear mental stagnation by hanging them in on our front door and in our kitchen. 

In reading more about the spiritual benefits of eucalyptus plants, I am learning how vital this aromatic plant can be. Here, to quote Shamalah-Allah from her blog:

"Do you every wonder why thoughts are repetitive inside of your head? Why you can’t seem to get what that person said out of your mind?  Why the past continues to haunt you even after it’s been worked out seemingly?  That’s because the by-product of that situation or it’s energy hasn’t completely vaccated your aura (the energy field that emminates outward from your phsycial body).   Even though a situation may have completed its cycle, there still can be residue left over from it – similar to ashes left after a fire.
Eucalyptus oil is great for cleaning out residual energy, it expells it out, just like it does medicinally for our congestion."

If you are unable to find eucalyptus branches, go to your local healthfood store to purchase a bottle of eucalyptus oil. In a clean glass bottle, fill mostly with spring water and then top with a few drops of eucalyptus oil (give or take depending on the size of your bottle). Spritz the air and breathe in the freshness. 

If you'd like to make a general purpose surface cleaner, add a bit of dish liquid, shake, spritz surface and wipe clean.

Got goo residue from an old sticker? Remove it effortlessly with straight eucalyptus oil.
