Vicks Plant
Answered by: Koidu Sulev
Question from: Kathy

Can I use the leaves of this plant in a bath, as I would use eucalyptus?

Since you are using eucalyptus leaves in your bath already, I can see you are interested to try other herbs. Vicks plant leaves might be more concentrated, fleshier leaves, so use fewer leaves to start off with. Sometimes allergic reactions occur with plant materials. Try out first by putting some leaves in the sink with warm water and keep your hands in the water for five minutes. If the hands start to itch, it might not be a good idea. The fragrance of the vicks plant is very refreshing so I can see why you would like to try it out.
