What Exactly IS Cottage Core?
Cottage core is a subculture that started in the mid-2010s. It's all about fantasy and nostalgia for the simple life on the farm or in a cottage. If you're into it, then you're probably dreaming of living a life full of hygge, but with a more outdoorsy twist. If you're trying to get more into cottage core and bring some of that blissful fantasy into your own home, eucalyptus is one of the easiest things to implement without having to buy a bunch of stuff or change your life around too much.
Create a Cottage Core Aesthetic Without Making Your Entire Life About It
There are lots of little ways to use eucalyptus to make your home feel cozy and comforting, but there's one place where we can't recommend eucalyptus enough: the shower! While you're taking your daily shower, use eucalyptus bundles to bring out the calming scents of nature and fill your bathroom with them. You'll have an easier time dropping off at night after a long day when you've got the sweet smell of eucalyptus lingering around. And if you don't have time or resources to make your own eucalyptus for a full-on spa shower steaming session every night? No worries! Just add this to your cart and call it a day- a few days later you’ll be relaxing to a gloriously scented and oh so aesthetically pleasing blend of eucalyptus and aromatic florals in your space. Don’t forget to snag one as a gift, too!
If you’re still asking yourself, "Why do I need eucalyptus in my shower?"
The answer: because it's 2022 and this is the exact kind of fantasy item you need in your life.
“But why tho?”
Well, for one thing, it will make the room smell amazing, with a clean and fresh scent that's just barely reminiscent of VapoRub—but waaaay better. It'll be like you're living in your own little spa inside your bathroom, surrounded by the soothing scent of eucalyptus. (Imagine a nice wood-paneled bathroom at a lodge out in the middle of nowhere.)
Plus, if you're like me (and most other people), you've gone to a sauna at some point and found yourself enjoying being able to inhale the scent of eucalyptus. It can help clear your sinuses and relieve congestion, which is great for those of us who tend to get congested just by living in big cities.
It's also pretty relaxing and calming, so if you're someone who has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep—or if you have trouble relaxing during the day—this is a great option. Plus, it's easy to install in any shower!
So next time you find yourself walking through the woods and wondering what it would be like to live there, remember—you can get that feeling as soon as you step into your shower.
