Insufficient Evidence for
• Asthma. Early research shows that eucalyptol, a chemical found in eucalyptus oil, might be able to break up mucous in people with asthma. Some people with severe asthma have been able to lower their dosage of steroidmedications if they take eucalyptol. But don’t try this without your healthcare provider’s advice and monitoring.
• Bronchitis. Some research shows that taking a specific combination product containing eucalyptol, a chemical found in eucalyptus oil, and extracts of pine and lime by mouth for at least 2 weeks improves symptoms and reduces flare-ups in people with bronchitis.
• Dental plaque. Early research shows that chewing gum containing 0.3% to 0.6% eucalyptus extract can reduce dental plaque in some people.
• Gingivitis. Early research shows that chewing gum containing 0.4% to 0.6% eucalyptus extract can improve gingivitis in some people.
• Bad breath. Early research shows that chewing gum containing 0.4% to 0.6% eucalyptus extract can improve bad breath in some people.
• Head lice. Early research shows that applying eucalyptus oil and lemon tea tree oil might help to get rid of head lice, But it does not seem to be as effective as applying tea tree oil and lavender oil or benzyl alcohol, mineral oil, and triethanolamine.
• Headache. Early research shows that applying a combination product containing eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil, and ethanol to the head does not reduce pain in people with headaches. However, the product might help people with headaches relax and think better.
