Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globus) helps to clear minor, non-cycstic acne problems or skin blemishes by reducing the oiliness of the skin. The cineole-based oil is used as a component in pharmaceutical preparations to relieve 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 also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic qualities as a topically applied liniment ingredient.
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.
Cineole-based eucalyptus oil is used as an insect repellent and biopesticide. In the USA, eucalyptus oil was first registered in 1948 as an insecticide and miticide.
Cineole-based eucalyptus oil is used as a flavoring at low levels (0.0002%) in various products, including baked goods, confectionery, and beverages. Eucalyptus oil has antimicrobial activity against a broad range of foodborne human pathogens and food spoilage microorganisms.
