For hundreds of years, the Aborigines of Australia have used the leaves of Eucalyptus Citriodora (now known as Corymbia citriodora) leaves for their antiseptic and healing actions. In the mid-1800s, groves of eucalyptus trees were planted in swampy areas of North Africa to halt the spread of malaria; the trees required large amounts of water to thrive, lowering the water table and thus eliminating breeding conditions for malaria-carrying mosquitoes, as well as repelling these insects with the aroma exhaled from the leaves. French surgeon Jean Valnet, MD, reported that 70% of airborne staph bacteria were killed when a 2% emulsion of eucalyptus oil was used as a spray.
