What is Eucalyptus Oil?Essential oils from the Eucalyptus species have been used in food and cosmetic industries. In African folk medicine, the inhalation of Eucalyptus essential oils has traditionally been used to support a healthy respiratory system as well as cold support and skin health . *
How could Eucalyptus Essential Oil Improve My Health?
- Eucalyptus Oil presents a broad range of health benefits. It exerts positive effects for cold and respiratory health, and healthy microbial management.*
- Eucalyptus Oil contains numerous flavanones that are structurally related to pinocembrin and it is present in abundant amounts. Methylated flavonoids contain therapeutic properties that help to improve intestinal absorption, enhance bioactivities, and increase metabolic stability . Pinocembrin exhibits properties that may make it effective for supporting cardiovascular health and cell homeostasis . They have the ability to reduce reactive oxygen species and healthy flammation, and also presents with neuroprotective effects such as supporting brain health and brain recovery . Pinocembrin is readily absorbed following oral administration and is capable of passing through the blood-brain barrier in a passive transport process .*
- The strong antimicrobial activity of Eucalyptus Oil may be directly associated with their major compounds such as 1,8-cineole and α-pinene or alternatively with the synergy between major and minor constituents . Many studies have reported on viral support activities of Eucalyptus Oil . Enteroviruses are more prevalent in the environment. . Eucalyptus Oils have shown strong bacterial supporting activity . Eucalyptus Oil was tested against five fungal strains that included one opportunist pathogenic yeast (Candida albicans), one filamentous (Scopulariopsis brevicaulis) and three dermatophytes (Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton soudanense, and Microsporum canis). All tested fungal and yeast strains were more sensitive to Eucalyptus Oil . Eucalyptus Oil also has an effect on the monocytic/macrophagic system, i.e. one of the primary cellular effectors of the immune response against homeostasis . It can induce the activation of innate cell-mediated immune responses and intensely stimulate their phagocytic responses, which can be helpful for respiratory health.*
- The effects of essential oils from the Eucalyptus plant on melanogenesis and the oil's antioxidant characteristics were investigated . In pharmaceutical and dermatological fields, antioxidants have been widely used to prevent or treat disorders related to oxidative stress. Results indicated that Eucalyptus Oil significantly inhibits tyrosinase activity, decreases melanin synthesis and exhibited exceptional intracellular free radical scavenging, proving its worthiness as a promising antioxidant . Due to promising results, it is been used in the cosmetic industry to promote skin health.*
- Eucalyptus Oil has had outstanding positive effects on human gastrointestinal health. More than 50% of the world's population is infected with Helicobacter pylori in their upper gastrointestinal tract. Infection is more common in developing countries compared to Western countries. The in vitro gastro supporting properties of the Eucalyptus plant was investigated in six strains. The anti-H. pylori property demonstrated by Eucalyptus extracts may be attributed to their chemical constituents. It can also explain their reported traditional use, as well as their gastro-protective properties as demonstrated on experimental animals . The stomach health effects of methanol extracts of the Eucalyptus plant was investigated in acetic acid-induced ulcers in rats. Results showed that Eucalyptus extracts support healthy cell growth at day 5. At the end of the fourteenth day, optimal stomach health was noted . From this, a new triterpenoid compound (eucalyptanoic acid) was isolated from the fresh uncrushed leaves of the Eucalyptus plant. This compound was discovered to be the most active spasmolytic health agent. Its effect was mediated through a blockade of calcium influx at 1 mg/ml .*
- The anti-proliferative effects of 1, 8-cineole was studied on human colon cell line health. Eucalyptus Oil was characterized by a very high concentration of 1, 8-cineole. The results indicated that 1, 8-cineole suppressed human colorectal health proliferation by inducing apoptosis. Based on these studies, 1, 8-cineole would be an effective way to support colorectal health . It also supported the health management of cell mass, with a promising effect against WEHI-3 cells, and it exhibited a low cytotoxic effect . There are studies available on Eucalyptus Oil that show its potent cytotoxic effects and supports liver and lung cell line health .*
- Acetaminophen administration causes kidney damage. Eucalyptus Oil can provide beneficial effects on Kidney Health. The localization of flavonoids in membrane interiors and their resulting restrictions on the fluidity of membrane components could strictly hinder the diffusion of free radicals generated during acetaminophen oxidation, thereby decreasing further health . Eucalyptus Oil exerts an in vivo antioxidant effect against reactive oxygen species generated following acetaminophen oxidation and could support Kidney Health .*
- The blood glucose supporting effects of the ethanolic extract of Eucalyptus camaldulensis leaves were studied with an oral glucose tolerance test on albino rats. The administration of the ethanolic extract at a dose of 500 mg/kg of body weight showed a highly significant blood glucose supporting agent when compared with a control group .*
- Healthy parasite support has also been attributed to Eucalyptus.*
Nutritional Value or Phytochemical ContentThe major constituents of Eucalyptus Oil are β-Pinene, β-Myrcen, α-Phellandrene, Terpinolene, Limonene, 1, 8-Cineole, γ-Terpinene, 4-Carene, Linalool, Pinocarveol, 4-Terpineol, α-Terpineol, and Monoterpene hydrocarbons. As reported in the literature, Eucalyptus Oil is characterized by a very high concentration of 1, 8-cineole. About 85.8% of 1,8-cineole is present in Eucalyptus Oil. The Eucalyptus species also contains numerous flavanones such as O-glucosides and flavanone-β-triketone conjugates. Additionally, the glands contain free β-triketones, β-triketone heterodimers, and chromone C-glucosides, together with their well-characterized complements of sesquiterpene oils.
Suggested Usage / DosageInternal Use - 0.3 to 0.6 g of 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil.
External Use - 3 to 5 drops for headaches, the common cold, steam inhalation, and an Ayurvedic bath.
