An Australian Facebook post from ‘Tassie Terrariums‘ has attracted the attention of thousands, with many praising the appeal of the ‘modern jungle’.
It is not the first time that a shower plant trend has made an impression, with ‘eucalyptus showers’ that previously caused a furore in the interior world.
The idea immediately became popular and involves people hanging the plant from their shower head to promote sleeping habits.

The trend (pictured) doesn’t just look good, it also offers a whole host of health benefits, from better sleep to an improved immune system
To join this trend, simply collect an assortment of fresh eucalyptus leaves, tie the stems together and secure them behind the shower head, out of direct water flow.
Then just turn on your shower and enjoy all the health benefits. A combination of steam and heat from the shower helps the greens release essential oils.
A eucalyptus shower also helps give your home a spa-like feel — giving you an instant boost in the morning if you’re feeling sluggish.
When you have a cold, the leaves will also help clear your sinuses and leave you feeling fresh for the day.

“I’ve been battling a terrible cold this week and it’s moved a bit to my chest. After some research in the bookstore, I found that eucalyptus oil has decongestant,” one wrote.
Others have emphasized that the decorating trick not only looks good, but makes you feel even better.
Give a eucalyptus shower at home and be prepared to instantly feel calmer and refreshed. The plant should also last at least a month.
