Eucalyptol – Terpene Profile
Eucalyptol is a widespread terpene naturally produced by the Eucalyptus tree but also in many other plants including laurel, rosemary, and citrus oils and juices. Known for its alluring aromatics of cardamom, spice, mint and pine, Eucalyptol has been shown to be effective in treating anti-inflammatory and advanced respiratory disorders. Research has demonstrated that the terpene can also alleviate conditions including cancer, memory problems, infections, gum disease joint pain. Thanks to its cooling, minty flavors, Eucalyptol is a common ingredient in gum, hard candies and toothpaste.
