Research, published in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal has looked at the effects of inhaling Eucalyptus Oil (or Almond Oil for the control group) on pain and inflammatory issues – after total knee replacement surgery.

Researchers from the Department of Basic Nursing Science, School of Nursing, Korea University, Seoul, the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, School of Medicine, Eulji University, and the KT&G Research Institute, Daejeon, the Republic of Korea, studied patients who had been through total knee replacement (TKR) surgery.

Patients inhaled eucalyptus or almond oil for 30 minutes for 3 days with measurements – against a control group – taken of pain, blood pressure, heart rate, C-reactive protein concentration and white blood cell count.

Pain, systolic and diastolic blood pressure were significantly lower in the group inhaling eucalyptus than that inhaling almond oil.

The researchers concluded that the inhalation of eucalyptus oil was effective in decreasing patient's pain and blood pressure following TKR.
