Australia’s aborigines used eucalyptus to treat various ailments including fever, cough and asthma, and European settlers soon adopted eucalyptus oil as their “medicine.” In earlier times, people believed that eucalyptus could cure malaria, and the hence called it the “Australian fever tree.” As it turned out, it was not a cure for this disease, but eucalyptus oil does contain a chemical (eucalyptol) that has decongestant and antiseptic action.  Eucalyptol kills several types of bacteria and viruses. After minor wounds have been washed, eucalyptus oil may be applied to help prevent infection. Because of its ability to kill bacteria, eucalyptus oil is an excellent choice for soaps, toners and cleansers, as well as shampoos and body washes.

Biochemica® Eucalyptus Oil exhibits a pleasant, menthol-like odor which is clean and refreshing. It may find application in OTC pharmaceuticals for use in inhalants and rubs to help with decongestion. Sports rubs and arthritic formulas are yet additional applications. Last, but not least, Biochemica® Eucalyptus Oil may be used in aromatherapy to help sooth and refresh!
