Anxiety and depression are debilitating, costly psychological disorders that account for $133 billion in direct medical expenses per year in the United States. Finding alternative means of treatment to reduce the personal and financial burden for patients with these disorders, while maintaining patient safety, is vital for overall patient wellness. The purposes of this study were 2-fold: (1) to determine if pure eucalyptol (1,8-cineole) produces anxiolytic and/or antidepressant effects using…

Inhalation Administration of the Bicyclic Ethers 1,8- and 1,4-cineole Prevent Anxiety and Depressive-Like Behaviours in Mice
The results suggest that inhaled 1,8- and 1,4-cineole prevented anxiety and depressive-like symptoms in classic mice models.
Suppressive effects of the supercritical-carbon dioxide fluid extract of Chrysanthemum indicum on chronic unpredictable mild stress-induced depressive-like behavior in mice.
SEC was able to alleviate depressive-like behavior in a CUMS-induced mice model, accompanied by inhibitory roles in the hyperactivity of the HPA axis and pro-inflammatory cytokine expression.
Chemopreventive and Therapeutic Efficacy of Cinnamomum zeylanicum L. Bark in Experimental Breast Carcinoma: Mechanistic In Vivo and In Vitro Analyses
C. zeylanicum L. showed chemopreventive and therapeutic activities in animal breast carcinoma models that were also significantly confirmed by mechanistic evaluations in vitro and in vivo.
White Sage (Salvia apiana)-a Ritual and Medicinal Plant of the Chaparral: Plant Characteristics in Comparison with Other Salvia Species.
A critical assessment of the available data was made and perspectives for the use of white sage preparations in modern phytomedicine were discussed, as well as reports on chemistry, bioactivity, and bioavailability of S. apiana constituents.
Evaluation on composition, antioxidant and toxicity of Melaleuca cajuputi leaves
Melaleuca cajuputi (MC) is an aromatic herb that belongs to Myrtaceae family. MC leaves are widely used as traditional medicine, cooking flavour and freshening agent in cosmetics. In this study, the
Grinding and Fractionation during Distillation Alter Hemp Essential Oil Profile and Its Antimicrobial Activity
The results can be utilized by the hemp processing industry and by companies developing new hemp EO-infused products, including perfumery, cosmetics, dietary supplements, food, and pharmaceutical industries.
Minyak Kayu Putih, Obat Alami dengan Banyak Khasiat: Tinjauan Sistematik
The available in vitro and in vivo evidences suggest that 1,8-cineol has many health benefits, however, since data on humans are rare, clinical trials in humans will be necessary to determine these effects.


Chemical composition and anxiolytic evaluation of Achillea Wilhelmsii C. Koch essential oil in rat
It is concluded that a minimum dose of 1 mg/kg of the oil has anxiolytic effects which are not probably mediated through GABA and opioid receptors.
The application of 1,8-cineole, a terpenoid oxide present in medicinal plants, inhibits castor oil-induced diarrhea in rats
This study demonstrated antispasmodic and antisecretory activities of 1,8-cineole and rationalized the traditional use of the plant containing various levels of this terpene in the treatment of gastrointestinal complains such as diarrhea.
Noncompetitive Inhibition of 5-HT3 Receptors by Citral, Linalool, and Eucalyptol Revealed by Nonlinear Mixed-Effects Modeling
It is demonstrated that citral, eucalyptol, and linalool inhibit 5-HT3 receptors, and their binding to a conserved cavity suggests a valuable target for novel allosteric modulators.
The Effect of 1,8-Cineole Inhalation on Preoperative Anxiety: A Randomized Clinical Trial
1,8-Cineole, a major constituent of eucalyptus, was effective in decreasing anxiety before SNRB, and the present findings suggest that inhalation of 1, 8-cineole may be used to relieve anxiety before, during, and after various operations, in addition to SNRB.
Uncaria tomentosa (Willd. ex. Roem. & Schult.) DC. and Eucalyptus globulus Labill. Interactions when Administered with Diazepam
Cat's claw enhanced the action of diazepam on spontaneous motor activity and, at the lowest dose, exploratory ability and Eucalyptus had an inhibitory effect at both doses and could be useful at the highest dose in cases where the desired effect of the depressant is moderate anxiolytic activity without marked muscle relaxation.
Essential oil compounds as stress reducing agents in rats.
The results suggested that Thymol and Linalool are safe to control pets without harming non-target mammals.
Eucalyptus Essential Oil as a Natural Food Preservative: In Vivo and In Vitro Antiyeast Potential
The results suggest eucalyptus oil as a potent inhibitor of food spoilage yeasts not only in vitro but also in a real food system.
