The eucalyptus genus includes more than 800 species. Native of Australia and nearby regions, it is now spread all over the world. Eucalyptus oil represents an important raw material for pharmaceutical, confectionery, and cosmetic industries. The main substance of medicinal oil is 1,8-cineole, and its amount has a great importance in defining the quality of the oil.
