Interesting history of the Eucalytus, never even thought it could be used for laundry.

Makes you wonder if we have discovered everything there is to discover!

Somehow I don't see how eucalyptus cigarettes could help "throat" ailments! Ha ha!

Very interesting. "Eucalyptus lozenges *and cigarettes* recommended for chest and throat ailments." How times have changed!

I love the scent of eucalyptus when walking through the floral shops.

I did not know all of this about the eucalyptus plant. I would say it is pretty important. Nice haiku. genie

I wish this oil wasn't so expensive here - but then, we don't have many eucalypts!

I always enjoy these signs that teach something about what we're seeing.
