Eucalyptus leaves are popularly known as the only food koalas consume. Eucalyptus plants are mostly native to Australia and now grow in warmer climates in other countries around the world.
Our dried eucalyptus leaves have been carefully dried to retain all of the natural goodness associated with the plant. The dried leaves can then be enjoyed as a natural herbal tea that can help soothe, relax and could even relieve congestion.
Ideas for using eucalyptus leaves:
- Infuse in hot water for a soothing herbal tea
- Add dried eucalyptus leaves to a bowl of boiling water and hold your head over the bowl with a towel to keep the steam in to help with congestion
- In small mesh or linen pouches, add eucalyptus leaves, along with other dried flowers such as lavender and use as drawer fresheners that also keep insects away.
Directions for use: To make eucalyptus tea, add ½ teaspoon of dried eucalyptus leaves to a tea infuser and infuse in hot water for a minimum of 2-3 minutes (or longer if you prefer it stronger).
You can buy eucalyptus leaves online in a range of sizes from small to bulk depending on your requirements. If you are a small business, cafe or restaurant owner, consider buying in bulk and putting eucalyptus tea on the menu! For more loose tea options shop our tea category.
