Eucalyptus leaves can be used in the home for decorative, aesthetic and aromatic purposes.

They can also be used in dried floral arrangements as a fragrant decoration in your home.


Step 1

Use eucalyptus leaves to repel bugs or fleas in your home. Place the leaves in the area of your home where these pests persist. Place the leaves in a small cup, jug or bowl, or use a eucalyptus leaves sachet. The smell will keep the fleas and bugs away.

Put a eucalyptus plant in the living room or dining room as a decorative piece; it will also add a refreshing aroma to the room.
