Research shows that Eucalyptus globulus, whose cineole is the main active ingredient, helps to reduce the inflammatory effect of chronic bronchitis and inhibits the hypersecretion of mucins in the respiratory tract in animal studies.
A randomized study published in evidence-based alternative and alternative medicine evaluated the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections with herbs. The trial was conducted in six primary care clinics in northern Israel and participants were treated with a blend of essential oils including eucalyptus, peppermint, oregano and rosemary essential oils. Members of the experimental group applied the essential oil mixture as a spray five times a day for three days and compared these results to a placebo spray.
