And all you need is half a cup of olive oil, fresh eucalyptus, a jar to make the product, and a jar to store the product. The first thing to do is harvest the eucalyptus, which is best done in the morning, when the oils are at its peak. And eucalyptus is lovely.
It's really anti-bacterial, it's got great decongestant properties, and it's very refreshing, too. Simply fill the jar with the eucalyptus, and once filled, crush the leaves to help release some of the oils. And then pour your olive oil over the top, and close the jar.
Then give it a good shake. And the next step is actually going to depend on the weather, because if it's a hot sun, you can leave the jar outside for two days, shaking every twelve hours, but for other times of the year, if you leave the jar for a month and shake it daily. And then, after this period, all you do is simply strain off the oil with a tea strainer into a jar.
And there you have your eucalyptus oil, which can be used directly onto your skin, or when you're in the bath. .
