Eucalyptus Essential Oil Constituents

 

Eucalyptus Essential Oil uses description and origin:

Eucalyptus is a common tree in Australia where in huge forests it poses a very high fire danger on hot summer's days when the very volatile oil evaporates from the leaves forming an explosive gas with the atmosphere. Eucalypt forests have been known to combust spontaneously.

The antiseptic properties of the oil in Eucalyptus leaves made it an essential and early antiseptic for the aboriginal people of Australia.

Eucalyptol: One of the two most important Monoterpene Oxides, the other is Ascaridole, Eucalyptol, more widely known as Cineol is one of the most widely distributed constituents amongst plants as an oxidised product of monoterpenes.

Eucalyptol is a expectorant widely used in commercial cough lozenges. It has a reputation as a skin irritant amongst many practitioners but recent tests have failed to confirm this.

Cineole: One of the two most important Monoterpene Oxides, the other is Ascaridole, Cineole is one of the most widely distributed constituents amongst plants as an oxidised product of monoterpenes. Cineole is often also called Eucalyptol, named so because it is the major component of Eucalyptus oil.

Cineole is a expectorant widely used in commercial cough lozenges. It has a reputation as a skin irritant amongst many practitioners but recent tests have failed to confirm this.

Terpineol: A Monoterpenol that is a major component of pine oils but also present in smaller quantities in other essential oils.
Terpineol is antibacterial and antiviral, an immune system stimulant, a good general tonic. In Essential Oils it is warming and uplifting.

Pinene: Commonly found in Oil of Turpentine extracted from Pinus specie trees, pinene (alpha-pinene and beta-pinene) is also widely distributed in other plants. It is used for Rheumatism as a liniment but is best known by Aromatherapists and a tonic of the mucus membranes of the respiratory system. Pinene is also important for its pleasant fragrance and is believed to have diuretic properties by many.

p-Cymene: A volatile hydrocarbon that occurs in anise, coriander, cumin, mace, oregano and eucalyptus.

p-Cymene is used in flavoring of beverages, cakes and confectionery as well as in fragrances.

P-Cymene could be an irritant to the skin and in higher concentrations can cause blistering. If ingested in significant concentrations it can cause nausea, a burning sensation in the mouth and skin of the throat, headaches and giddiness, and in extreme cases loss of consciousness or coma.
