Eucalyptus Essential Oil


A 2015 study, published in the Journal of Natural Products set out to evaluate how utilizing “Eucalyptus citriodora” essential oil fared against the inhaling drug-resistant tuberculosis. In addition to discovering 32 active anti-TB compounds in E citriodora, it observed the way that multiple components of the eucalyptrus interacted with each other and discovered that certain combinations literally inhibited airborne TB by over 90 percent!

A researcher out of Bonn University Hospital in Germany published an article in the journal Drug Research this past May highlighting how the cineole commonly found in eucalyptus essential oil is actually an effective long-term therapy to help control COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) symptoms and improve asthma.
