What's the secret to drying euculyptus? It gets a little shriveled and loses some color for me, even in the dark.

Thank you in Advance,
Mary Anne

The eucalyptus that most people are used to is preserved in glycerin. This gives the 'softness' to the stem and leaves. When one uses glycerin the leaves are discolored, turn dark, so you always add dye in the glycerin mix. This is why you see all the different colors of eucalyptus.

When you air dry you did get some leaves to shrivel some. This generally occurs at the very tips, which can be trimmed. The color will turn to a sage green similar to that of Salal (lemon leaf). I personally prefer the air-dried look; it is more natural in color and appearance.
