What Is 1,8-Cineole?

Cineole and pinene compounds in turmeric could help treat chronic bronchitis.

1,8-cineole is a monoterpene-type of plant compound found mostly in the essential oils of turmeric leaf. 1,8-cineole gives off a cool, camphor-like odor, and more mature turmeric plants have less 1,8-cineole than younger ones. (ii.110-16)

Other herbs, fruits, and spices that contain 1,8-cineole include basil, bay leaf, cardamom, chamomile, chaste-tree, damiana, eucalyptus, gotu kola, lavender, lime, mint, oregano, rosemary, saffron, savory, and tarragon. Many of these offer healthful benefits, too, whether used as a spice, as an herbal remedy (e.g., for acne, thinning hair or stress relief), aphrodisiac, or in aromatherapy(ii.110-16)
