Description and Uses
Eucalyptus oil is the generic name for distilled oil from the leaf of Eucalyptus,
Eucalytus oil has a history of wide application,as a pharmaceutical, antiseptic, repellent,
flavouring, fragrance and industrial uses.
The leaves of selected Eucalyptus species are steam distilled to extract eucalyptus oil.
1.Medicinal and antiseptic
The cineole-based oil is used as component in pharmaceutical preparations to
relieve the symptoms of influenza and colds, in products like cough sweets,lozenges, ointments and inhalants.
Eucalyptus oil has antibacterial effects on pathogenic bacteria in the respiratory tract.Inhaled eucalyptus oil vapor is a decongestant and treatment for bronchitis. Cineole controls airway mucus hypersecretion and asthma via anti-inflammatory cytokine inhibition.Eucalyptus oil also stimulates immune system response by effects on the phagocytic ability of human monocyte derived macrophages.
Eucalyptus oil is also used in personal hygiene products for antimicrobial properties in dental care and soaps. It can also be applied to wounds to prevent infection.
2.Repellent and biopesticide
Cineole-based eucalyptus oil is used as an insect repellent and biopesticide. In the U.S., eucalyptus oil was first registered in 1948 as an
insecticide and miticide.
Eucalyptus oil is used in flavouring. Cineole-based eucalyptus oil is used as a flavouring at low
levels (0.002%) in various products, including baked goods, confectionery, meat products andbeverages. Eucalyptus oil has antimicrobial activity against a broad range of foodborne human pathogens and food spoilage microorganisms. Non-cineole peppermint gum, strawberry gum andlemon ironbark are also used as flavouring.
Eucalyptus oil is also used as a fragrance component to impart a fresh and clean aroma in soaps, detergents, lotions and perfumes.
Research shows that cineole-based eucalyptus oil (5% of mixture)
prevents the separation problem with ethanol and petrol fuel blends. Eucalyptus oil also has a respectable octane rating and can be used as a fuel in its own right. However, production
costs are currently too high for the oil to be economically viable
as a fuel.
Phellandrene- and piperitone-based eucalyptus oils have been used
in mining to separate sulfide minerals via flotation.
