NYU Reports Multiple Scientific Studies Show Benefits of EucalyptusEucalyptus Oil is getting more and more interest from the medical community. While eucalyptus and other essential oils, such as mentha arvensis (menthol), have long been used to help with symptoms of colds, now scientists are studying a particular blend of products called Monoterpenes. Monoterpenes combine cineol from eucalyptus, d-limonene from citrus fruit, and alpha-pinene from pine.
monoterpenes can help acute bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, and sinus infections. 2-7
For example, a double-blind , placebo-controlled trial of 676 people with acute bronchitis found that 2 weeks treatment with essential oil monoterpenes was more effective than placebo and equally effective as antibiotic treatment for reducing symptoms and aiding recovery. 5
Also, a 3-month, double-blind , placebo-controlled trial of 246 people with chronic bronchitis found that regular use of essential oil monoterpenes helped prevent the typical worsening of chronic bronchitis that occurs during the winter. 4
Additionally, in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of about 300 people, use of essential oil monoterpenes improved symptoms of acute sinusitis . 2
One study weakly indicates that essential oil monoterpenes may be helpful for colds in children. 1
Essential oil monoterpenes are thought to work by thinning mucus.
The NYU story above is just one of many that are showing the amazing benefits of eucalyptus. While these studies deal with a specific combination of products, other studies have shown eucalyptus oil itself to be effective in helping with respiratory issues.
1 Benefits were seen in such symptoms as nasal congestion, headache, and overall malaise. Because the participants in this study suffered, in particular, from sinus symptoms, this study has been used to indicate that cineol may be helpful for viral sinusitis . Few significant side effects were seen in this study, but the product used was of pharmaceutical grade,... (emphasis added)Note here that the NYU article above specifically points to pharmaceutical grade eucalyptus oil. Now it is possible for owners of managers of commercial steam rooms to add pharmaceutical grade eucalyptus oil directly into the steam through the use of the Mystifier Automatic Injection System offered by Eurospa Aromatics. For as little as $750 and a few dollars per day, spa and gym owners can add the deliciously fragrant aroma of eucalyptus to their steam rooms, and simultaneously provide their guest with multiple, scientifically proven, health benefits.
