Eucalyptus is an evergreen tree that’s native to Australia, but can also be found right here in the UK. We’re all about sustainability at Pott, so were drawn to eucalyptus because it’s fast-growing, making it one of the more ethical and eco-friendly ingredients to work with.
We also chose it because it’s 100% natural, and to be honest, we just wanted something fresh after Christmas. We’ve spent the last few weeks eating too much, and not moving nearly enough, so we knew a fresh new scent would spring us into action, and get us ready for the new year. And just because we wanted to keep the Christmas spirit going a little bit longer… we’ve mixed it with clove.
This scent also means a lot to me personally. I used to live in Australia, and one of my favourite memories is walking through eucalyptus forests, searching for koalas. Now every time I smell eucalyptus, I’m instantly transported back to that unforgettable time in my life – the joy of spotting a koala all happy in its natural habitat just made my heart so full, so I wanted to share that feeling with all of you.
