Hang the eucalyptus upside down by tying it to your shower head with twine, the steam and warmth will release the beneficial oils.

The benefits of the released oil include; anti-stress; increased mental clarity; mood enhancer; anti-inflammatory; increased respiratory health. Not to mention the luscious, natural scent of eucalyptus!

The Archives Month Challenge:

othmeralia challenged us to share our five favorite items for Archives Month—how could we refuse? 

  1. Patent Drawing for J. O. Lose’s One Wheeled Vehicle, 09/01/1885
    Regular followers will know we love sharing quirky vintage patents, and it just didn’t seem right to leave Mr. Lose’s inspired velocipede just sitting on the page.

  2. Letter from Kelli Middlestead from the Franklin School, Burlingame, California to Walter Stieglitz the Regional Director of the Alaska Region of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 04/13/1989 
    This second-grader’s letter about the plight of sea otters after the Exxon Valdez oil spill gets us every time.  It’s easily our favorite item of all, and one of our most popular, second only to a little-known Liverpudlian pop group.

  3. Letter from Fidel Castro to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, 11/06/1940
    A young Fidel Castro writes to FDR, both congratulating him on his recent election, and asking for a $10 bill. (we haven’t run this yet, but stay tuned!)

  4. Drawing of an Animal Trap by J. A. Williams, 12/26/1882
    A personal favorite from our team member Suzanne for its ridiculous extreme. Talk about overkill!

  5. A selection of DOCUMERICA photographs
    DOCUMERICA is our go-to series when we need a good dose of 70s nostalgia combined with a heavy environmental guilt trip. 

While we’re on the topic, don’t miss usnatarchives' series of personal favorites from other National Archives Staff (also shared here).  

We’re also curious what favorites our colleagues at ourpresidents, congressarchivesarchivesofamericanartcityofbostonarchives, and rockhalllibrary would come up with?

But enough about us — what are your favorite National Archives holdings (share them and we’ll post them here!) ?
