Question about using Eucalyptus leaves
My husband gave me a huge bouquet for my birthday a few weeks ago, and it has eucalyptus leaves in it. Would it be a safe/good idea to use the leaves in some sort of herbal way? Last fall @judsoncarroll4 wrote about it:
Materia Medica Lesson 7-3: Eucalyptus
Good for bacteria, including major burping indigestion and gastrointestinal stuff. Basically a disinfectant. Good with echinacea. Good skin wash for chiggers, heat rash, etc.
EUCALYPTUS LEAVES. Standard Infusion, 2-4 ounces, to 4X a day. ESSENTIAL OIL,1-5 drops in capsule. STATUS : W/C
I'm wondering if it's a good idea to try to make the infusion from the eucalyptus in my bouquet, what to infuse it in, and exactly how to do it.
