The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of eucalyptus leaf powder (ELP) and eucalyptus essential oil (EEO) on growth performance and immune response of broiler chickens. A total of 160 broiler chicks were assigned randomly into five dietary treatments from 7-42 days of age. Dietary treatments included: a control diet, control diets plus 1,000 or 3,000 mg/kg of ELP, and control diets plus 250 or 500 mg/kg of EEO. Dietary inclusion of ELP decreased body weight gain (BWG) during 7-28… Expand

Evaluation of an essential oil in treatment of immunosuppressed-coinfected broilers.
TLDR
Results showed that the essential oil treatment was able to reduce the morbidity and rales, just 2 days post the IBV challenge, and in the consistent higher magnitude of acquired humoral responses to both NDV and IBDV in the multiply challenged groups 1 and 2, in comparison to the similarly challenged group 3 that was deprived of the treatment.

The Essential Oil of Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ex Maiden Inhibits Microbial Growth by Inducing Membrane Damage
TLDR
The essential oil of E. grandis showed high scavenging of DPPH and ABTS radicals, and was actively against 13 of the 16 organisms tested with the MIC ranging from 0.625 mg - 5.0 mg/ml, concluding that the antibacterial activity of the essential oil was exhibited through cell membrane damage rather than the damage of the DNA.
