When we lived in Northern Nevada we had a hot tub. There was a eucalyptus and mint pod thing to make your water smell good. We used it frequently. I didn't know it was dangerous.

Bath and bodyworks sells a version of it also for the bath. https://www.bathandbodyworks.com/p/euca ... l#start=14

but then i'm a wimp who doesn't like much of anything spicy.
Agreed!
Even externally, I am no fan--tried some for arthritis--only once!
Very unpleasant.
i well remember my first time trying nachos with jalapenos. it wasn't so much the heat i experienced at dinner....oh no! it was the uh, disastrous morning after.

yuck!

btw, my apologies to the op. didn't mean to interrupt your thread. please to carry on.

I do know that when I eat foods with lots of chilli, my sinuses are greatly cleared. lol

The one thing that clears sinuses fastest is eau de skunk.
Why would it have to be something really horrible?

hahahaha! I think I would prefer my sinuses to blocked instead of needing to smell that! At least we don't have any Pepé Le Pews in Australia. lol

Your Noah's Ark of venemous creatures definitely trumps my skunk.
Our only marsupial is the opossum--ugly, but harmless.

lol. I guess it's a case of the devils you know being better.
We live in the "bush" (aka forest or woods to non-locals) surrounded by wildlife - and I love it and them.

We really have gotten off the subject. haha
