I have a eucalyptus tree in my yard and I would like to cut some branches off and dry them to put inside my house. Is there a product out there that you use to do this with?

    Cut stems in the length you desire. Boil 2 cups water and pour into a heat-proof vase. Add a cup of glycerin, then place the eucalyptus cuttings in the vase. Allow the branches to soak for two to three minutes. Then, place the branches on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow them to set overnight to dry before using them.
