Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –Baru-baru ini eucalyptusdisebut sebagai salah satu bahan penangkal Covid-19 atau virus corona. Kendati hingga kini masih diperlukan uji lanjutan mengenai bahan aktif eucalyptus dalam menghancurkan virus corona, tapi sejak dulu tanaman ini telah terbukti memiliki khasiat sebagai obat.

Ketut Gede Mudiarta, Kepala Balai Pengelola Alih Teknologi Pertanian (BPATP) bilang Balitbangtan telah melakukan uji coba sejumlah tumbuhan yang berpotensi sebagai anti virus corona.

Hasilnya, disimpulkan tanaman eucalyptus paling efektif menangkal virus corona karena memiliki kandungan senyawa aktif 1,8-cineole (eucalyptol).

“Kemudian, beberapa prototype teknologi berbasis minyak eucalyptus sebagai anti virus dihasilkan atas kolaborasi beberapa unit kerja dibawah Balitbangtan,” ujarnya dalam keterangan resmi yang diterima CNNIndonesia.com, dikutip Senin (18/5).

Kelenjar daun eucalyptus mengandung minyak aromatik yang mudah menguap yang dikenal sebagai minyak kayu putih atau eucalyptol.

Kandungan eucalyptol memiliki efek anti-inflamasi dan antivirus, sehingga pengobatan berbasis eucalyptus atau kayu putih dapat digunakan untuk mengatasi masalah pernapasan, menghilangkan lendir, mendisinfeksi luka, dan sebagainya.

Berikut manfaat eucalyptus untuk mengatasi berbagai masalah kesehatan, dilansir dari berbagai sumber, Selasa (12/5).

1. Meredakan batuk

Penelitian awal menunjukkan bahwa eucalyptol dapat memecah lendir pada orang dengan penyakit asma atau sesak napas.

Bahkan beberapa orang dengan kondisi asma yang parah dapat menurunkan dosis steroidasinya jika mereka menggunakan terapi eucalyptol.

Namun sebelum mencobanya, pastikan Anda berkonsultasi dan mendapatkan rekomendasi dokter, serta berhati-hatilah bagi yang memiliki alergi kayu putih karena justru bisa memperburuk asma.

3. Meredakan pilek

Eucalyptus merupakan bahan umum yang terkandung dalam obat pilek, flu, dan batuk yang bisa mengurangi volume lendir dan memperluas bronkus dan bronkiolus paru-paru.

Eucalyptol, atau juga dikenal sebagai cineole, dapat mengurangi gejala pilek seperti hidung tersumbat, sakit tenggorokan, dan sakit kepala dengan mengurangi peradangan dan penumpukan lendir.

Ketika merasakan gejala pilek, hiruplah minyak kayu putih melalui hidung atau dioleskan di bagian leher dan dada agar aromanya dapat tercium.

Namun, hindari mengonsumsinya langsung karena dosis kecil minyak kayu putih yang tertelan bisa menjadi racun.

4. Manfaat eucalyptus untuk mencegah gigitan serangga

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mengonfirmasi bahwa minyak eucalyptus merupakan bahan yang efektif untuk mencegah gigitan nyamuk, dikutip dari Healthline.

Di Afrika, eucalyptus menjadi obat tradisional dan pencegahan malaria karena efektif menghalau gigitan nyamuk. Mirip dengan sereh atau serai, eucalyptus juga memiliki aroma yang kuat yang dapat mengganggu indera penciuman nyamuk sehingga mempersulit mereka untuk menemukan ‘sumber makanan’.

Selain nyamuk, minyak eucalyptus juga bisa untuk mengusir serangga lain seperti kutu, hama, dan lalat.

Penelitian menunjukkan bahwa mengoleskan minyak eucalyptus pada kulit efektif menangkal nyamuk dan serangga lainnya hingga delapan jam setelah pengaplikasian.

Semakin tinggi kandungan kayu putihnya, semakin lama dan efektif kerja eucalyptus dalam menolak gigitan serangga.

5. Mengobati luka

9 Khasiat Minyak Eukaliptus yang Disebut Bisa Menangkal Corona

TEMPO.COJakarta – Minyak eukaliptus yang saat ini dikembangkan sebagai penangkal corona oleh Kementerian Pertanian telah lama diketahui memiliki banyak manfaat kesehatan. Salah satu yang paling populer adalah meredakan gejala batuk.

Selain itu, minyak yang diekstrak dari dedaunan pohon eucalyptus ini memiliki kekuatan untuk mengatasi dahak atau slam di saluran tenggorokan, membersihkan luka, hingga mengusir serangga.

Berikut ini manfaat minyak eucalyptus untuk kesehatan keluarga.

1. Meredakan batuk

Caranya menggunakan minyak eukaliptus untuk meredakan batuk dan flu sangatlah mudah. Oleskan saja ke dada dan bagian leher, dan rasakan “keajaibannya”.

2. Menghilangkan lendir di dada

Saat batuk, biasanya ada gejala lain yang menyertai, yakni lendir di dalam dada. Manfaat minyak eukaliptus selanjutnya adalah membantu Anda mengeluarkan lendir membandel yang menempel di dalam dada itu.

Hiruplah uap dari air hangat yang sudah tercampur dengan minyak eukaliptus, agar saat Anda batuk, lendir di dada juga bisa terangkat.

ALL ABOUT EUCALYPTUS OIL

ALL ABOUT EUCALYPTUS OIL

IN ESSENCE…

    • Eucalyptus Essential Oil is a purifying, cleansing, clarifying, and immune-boosting oil that is ideal for use on skin, in aromatherapy, and as a surface cleaning agent and a fabric freshener.
    • There are around 500 varieties of Eucalyptus that are used for the production of essential oils. They share common healing benefits and a characteristic fresh, camphoraceous scent, though some varieties have slight nuances in aroma.
    • Eucalyptus Oil is a popular ingredient in balms, inhalers, massage blends, and dental hygiene products for its soothing, stimulating, and anti-bacterial properties.
    • Eucalyptus Essential Oils support the respiratory system and soothe physical discomforts.
  • The healing benefits of Eucalyptus Oil can be attributed to its anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, deodorant, and antiseptic qualities, among other valuable properties.

HISTORY OF EUCALYPTUS OIL

The Eucalyptus Tree is commonly associated with koala bears, as Eucalyptus leaves are their main source of food. Most of the 700 varieties of Eucalyptus grow like trees while others grow like shrubs. The tree goes by several nicknames such as Fever Tree, Blue Gum Tree, and Stringy Bark Tree, depending on its location in the world. Despite the multiplicity of Eucalyptus varieties, they share common characteristics including their fresh, crisp, clean, sweet and camphoraceous scents, which are sometimes further described as having hints of lemon, peppermint, or woody nuances. The shared trait that they are best known for, however, is the beneficial healing properties of their leaves, which have made this tree’s essential oils widely used as a traditional and natural medicine for centuries. First used by the Aboriginal people of Australia, who referred to is as “kino” and used it to heal most wounds, Eucalyptus leaves were made into infusions and used to treat body pains, colds, sinus congestions, and fevers, hence the nickname Fever Tree.

An English legend narrates the first use of Eucalyptus tree leaves for medicinal purposes: When an early English settler’s thumb was accidentally cut by an ax, his father advised him to apply a bandage made of bound Eucalyptus leaves around the stitched cut – something he had learned from studying Aboriginal folk medicine. A surgeon that later examined the wound was impressed by the speed of healing and the absence of infection in the finger. As stories like this spread throughout Australia, pharmacists began developing a plan to produce Eucalyptus Oil commercially. Shortly thereafter, leaves from the Eucalyptus radiata species began to be distilled.

Although Australia is the origin and the leading source of Eucalyptus Oil, the Eucalyptus tree and its essential oil production spread to other parts of the world including Brazil, Europe, Greece, China, and India. It was used for its disinfectant and expectorant properties in Chinese, Greek, European, and Ayurvedic medicine. Of the 700 species of Eucalyptus throughout the world, approximately 500 of them produce an essential oil, and global Eucalyptus Oil production is mainly from the Eucalyptus globulus species, more commonly known as “Blue Gum.” In the 1880s, surgeons began using Eucalyptus Oil in operations due to its antiseptic properties. Today, Eucalyptus continues to be a popular essential oil that is used in vapor rubs, rash creams, inhalers, ointments, and in dental hygiene products to support the respiratory system, to enhance oral health, and to soothe physical discomforts.


BENEFITS OF EUCALYPTUS OIL

Eucalyptus Essential Oil’s active chemical components contribute to its reputation as a purifying, cleansing, clarifying, and immune-boosting oil that is ideal for use on skin and in aromatherapy.

CULTIVATING AND HARVESTING QUALITY EUCALYPTUS OIL

Although considered to be “evergreen,” Eucalyptus Trees can lose their light green oval leaves, which darken with age and which contain the potent volatile oil that can be used medicinally. This is true for all other parts of the plant, too, including the bark and roots.

The only major oil-producing species that can be mechanically harvested is the Eucalyptus polybractea species, better known as Blue Mallee. The harvester cuts it a few centimeters above ground and the cut botanical material is tossed into a chute that leads to a mobile still, which is towed behind. When approximately three tonnes Eucalyptus leaves fill the still, it is detached and replaced with another still. The process is repeated until two or three stills are filled with the leaves. At the end of this collection process, the stills are towed to the distillery.


HOW IS EUCALYPTUS OIL EXTRACTED?

Eucalyptus Essential Oil is steam distilled from fresh or partially dried Eucalyptus leaves. The geographical conditions under which the tree grows all have an impact on the yield of oil as well as the chemical composition. They include factors such as the environment, season, climate, water availability, soil nutrients, UV radiation, stage of plant development, genetic variation, the part of the plant collected, and the drying process.

The oils produced are clear and have scents characteristic of their botanical species. The oils’ distinctive aromatic profiles also depend on the proportions of the individual chemical constituents they contain, which are determined more by genetic factors rather than environmental ones. The species, then, is the most influential factor for determining the oil’s quality and use. These factors together govern the value of the oil.


USES OF EUCALYPTUS OIL

The uses for Eucalyptus Essential Oil are abundant, ranging from medicinal and odorous to cosmetic. Its many forms include oils, gels, lotions, soaps, shampoos, and sprays, to name a few suggestions for homemade products.

Used in aromatherapy, the fragrance of Eucalyptus Essential Oil is inhaled and scent receptors in the brain’s emotional powerhouse process the smell as refreshing. A few drops of this invigorating oil placed in the hand while showering can be inhaled to promote a sense of vitality. Eucalyptus Oil’s expectorant properties also make it effective in facilitating the relief of congestion and respiratory tract infections. For relief from congestion, mix a few drops in a steaming bowl of hot water and lean over it to inhale the aromatic vapors with a towel draped over the head and bowl for a few minutes. The eyes should be closed to prevent irritation. It has traditionally been used to relieve the discomforts associated with fatigue, headaches, colds, sinusitis, mucous congestion, muscle aches and pains, and asthma.

Diluted with a carrier oil and used topically in a moisturizer or a blended massage oil, Eucalyptus Essential Oil’s stimulating properties may help to revitalize the skin and tired muscles. Known to have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, this soothing oil provides relief to minor burns, sores, bites, and cuts by decreasing pain, inhibiting bleeding, eliminating bacteria from the wound, and promoting the closing of scars. Diluted in a warm bath, Eucalyptus Essential Oil may relieve respiratory discomfort and dermal inflammation.

As a disinfecting air spray, Eucalyptus Essential Oil acts as a natural, anti-microbial, non-toxic air freshener that removes bacteria, viruses, and mold from the environment. Diluted with water, this spray can freshen the room and eliminate the body odors trapped in shoes and sports gear. A surface cleaning agent can be made by combining Eucalyptus Oil with Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils and then diluting the blend with water before using it on kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

The health benefits of eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia. As an ingredient in many products, it is used to reduce symptoms of coughs, colds, and congestion. It also features in creams and ointments aimed at relieving muscle and joint pain.

The oil that comes from the eucalyptus tree is used as an antiseptic, a perfume, as an ingredient in cosmetics, as a flavoring, in dental preparations, and in industrial solvents.

Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Greek, and other European styles of medicine have incorporated it into the treatment of a range of conditions for thousands of years.

There are over 400 different species of eucalyptus. Eucalyptus globulus, also known as Blue Gum, is the main source of eucalyptus oil used globally.

Leaves are steam distilled to extract the oil, which is a colorless liquid with a strong, sweet, woody scent. It contains 1,8-cineole, also known as eucalyptol.

The leaves also contain flavonoids and tannins; flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants, and tannins may help to reduce inflammation.

Health benefits and uses of eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is believed to have a number of medicinal properties, although not all of them have been confirmed by research. Below we outline some of its potential health benefits.

Interestingly, toward the end of the 19th century, eucalyptus oil was used in most hospitals in England to clean urinary catheters. Modern research is now starting to back this practice up.

In February 2016, researchers from Serbia found evidence supporting the antimicrobial action of eucalyptus.

They concluded that a positive interaction between E. camaldulensis essential oil (a tree in the Eucalyptus family) and existing antibiotics could lead to the development of new treatment strategies for certain infections.

They hope that this property could eventually reduce the need for antibiotics.

study published in Clinical Microbiology & Infection suggests that eucalyptus oil may have antibacterial effects on pathogenic bacteria in the upper respiratory tract, including Haemophilus influenzae, a bacteria responsible for a range of infections, and some strains of streptococcus.

Colds and respiratory problems

Eucalyptus features in a range of preparations to relieve symptoms of the common cold, for example, cough lozenges and inhalants.

Herbal remedies recommend using fresh leaves in a gargle to relieve a sore throatsinusitis, and bronchitis. Also, eucalyptus oil vapor appears to act as a decongestant when inhaled. It is a popular home remedy for colds and bronchitis.

It may act as an expectorant for loosening phlegm and easing congestion. A number of cough medications include eucalyptus oil, including Vicks VapoRub.

Researchers have called for further studies to clarify the possible therapeutic role of eucalyptus leaf extract in the treatment of respiratory tract infection.

Eucalyptus and dental care

The antibacterial and antimicrobial potential of eucalyptus has been harnessed for use in some mouthwash and dental preparations.

In promoting dental health, eucalyptus appears to be active in fighting bacteria that cause tooth decay and periodontitis.

The use of eucalyptus extract in chewing gum may promote periodontal health, according to a study published in the Journal of Periodontology.

Fungal infections and wounds

The University of Maryland Medical (UMM) Center describe how traditional Aboriginal medicines used eucalyptus to treat fungal infections and skin wounds.

Insect repellent

Eucalyptus is an effective insect repellent and insecticide. In 1948, the United States officially registered eucalyptus oil as an insecticide and miticide, for killing mites and ticks.

Oil of lemon eucalyptus is recommended by some as an insect repellant; it is effective at keeping mosquitoes away.

In 2012, researchers from New Delhi, in India, found that E. globulus oil was active against the larvae and pupae of the housefly. They suggested that it could be a viable option for use in eco-friendly products to control houseflies.

Pain relief

Eucalyptus extract may act as a pain reliever, and research indicates that the oil may have analgesic properties. In a study published in the American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, scientists applied Eucalyptamint on the anterior forearm skin of 10 people.

Eucalyptamint, an OTC preparation with the generic name methyl salicylate topical, is used to treat muscle and joint pain linked to strains and sprains, arthritis, bruising, and backache.

The scientists concluded that “Eucalyptamint, produced significant physiologic responses that may be beneficial for pain relief and/or useful to athletes as a passive form of warm-up.”

Stimulating immune system

Eucalyptus oil may stimulate an immune system response, say findings published in BMC Immunology.

Specifically, the researchers found that Eucalyptus oil could enhance the immune system’s phagocytic response to pathogens in a rat model. Phagocytosis is a process where the immune system consumes and destroys foreign particles.

Other conditions that eucalyptus may help with include:

  • Arthritis – potentially due to its anti-inflammatory properties
  • A blocked nose
  • Wounds and burns
  • Ulcers
  • Cold sores – perhaps due to its anti-inflammatory properties
  • Bladder diseases
  • Diabetes – eucalyptus might help lower blood sugar
  • Fever
  • Flu

Precautions and side effects

According to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), some essential oils can be hazardous, but those that are available commercially, from reputable sources, are safe to use if handled appropriately. The NAHA say that it is important to use “pure, authentic, and genuine essential oils.”

Eucalyptus products can generally be used safely on the skin, as long as the oil is diluted. It should not be applied directly onto the skin until it is diluted with a carrier oil, such as olive oil.

The dilution should be between 1 percent and 5 percent eucalyptus oil to between 95 percent and 99 percent carrier oil; this equates to roughly one to five drops of essential oil in an ounce of carrier oil.

Eucalyptus can produce irritation and a burning sensation. It should not be used too close to the eyes.

It is important to do an allergy test before using eucalyptus because it is highly allergenic. An allergy test can be done by adding the eucalyptus oil in the carrier oil and putting a drop on the arm. If there is no reaction in 24 hours, it is safe to use.

Allergies can develop over time. If you have used eucalyptus oil in the past and now seem to be having an allergic reaction to it, discontinue use.

It is not safe to take eucalyptus oil orally because it is poisonous.

In some individuals with asthma, eucalyptus can make their condition worse. Others find that it helps to relieve their asthma symptoms.

Side effects may include:

Signs of eucalyptus poisoning include dizziness, feelings of suffocation, and small pupils. It is important to note that eucalyptus may interact with other medications and can impact the liver.

Children are more sensitive to essential oils, so care should be taken when using eucalyptus with children. Use should be avoided during pregnancy.
