History

Picture
Oil of Eucalyptus has been distilled from at least 1788 when two doctors, John White and Dennis Cossiden distilled Eucalyptus for use in treating chest problems and colic. The first works on the antiseptic and bacterial killing properties of the  oil were published in Germany by Drs. Colez (1870), Faust and Homeyer (1874).  They classified it as being sudorfic, a stimulant, anti catarrhal and astringent. It was prescribed for all respiratory system conditions such as bronchitis, flu, asthma and coughs. These properties are still best known today as "Natures Tree Of Life".
