Eucalyptus as air freshener

Our Burro came with some unpleasant unidentified stale odor. I washed all the curtains, cushion covers and will be ripping out the old carpet soon, but it has remained. I bought a 4 oz spray of eucalyptus branches at Michaels craft store, left it in the Burro overnight and now the predominant smell is eucalyptus. I also left a small sprig in each of our cars with the same results. Potent stuff!

Try some Kanbera Tea Tree Oil and keep mold at bay at the same time.

To Sharpstick: Originally purchased the small gell one and then when I saw that it really works, I purchased the bag and just refill the small container. Have been using this stuff for over 7 years, use it year round and still have plenty in the bag. B 4 using it, had some mold and it has never come back after started using it. I recommend you purchase the small container and if it works for you then you can decide on the larger bag.

Wild Eucalyptus is EVERYWHERE in California as it is an invasive species that proliferates. Just thought you'd like to know!

Google "Uses for eucalyptus leaves" and you'll find some very interesting ideas. I don't know that I'd use it for "medicine" unless I knew what I was doing or that it was in a commercially available product.

Yep, it grows fast in the SoCal climate. I was told that there's a lot of it there because the railroad companies grew it for use in RR ties --it grows quickly and the wood is dense and strong. Unfortunately, it also twists a lot as it dries, making it not as suitable for railroad ties as existing trees, so they gave up on that idea. But the eucalyptus remains.
It's also known as the IRS tree: "You clipped us."
