10 mg vial of freeze-dried Eucalyptus extract.
Freeze dried extract of Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) pollen. Eucalyptus, scientifically known as Eucalyptus regnans, is a tall tree species that is native to the southeastern part of Australia. It is widely recognized for its characteristic smooth bark and aromatic leaves that produce a distinct, refreshing fragrance. The eucalyptus tree can grow up to a towering height of 45 meters and has an average lifespan of around 300 years. The tree’s impressive height and fast growth rate have made it a popular choice for timber production, as well as for landscaping and ornamental purposes in gardens and parks around the world. In addition to its practical and aesthetic qualities, eucalyptus has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. Its essential oil is particularly renowned for its therapeutic properties and is commonly used in aromatherapy and massage. While eucalyptus has many beneficial properties, it can also cause problems for individuals with respiratory issues or allergies. The tree produces pollen that is known to trigger allergic reactions in some people, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy eyes. In addition to its potential to cause allergies, eucalyptus trees are also known for their flammability, which can make them a hazard in certain fire-prone areas.
Raw material was cultivated in Middle Europe by collecting branches of trees and put in a greenhouse until the inflorescences matured. After maturing the inflorescences were collected, sieved and extracted with acetone. The pollen have been extracted followed by filtration. They have been freeze dried after dialysis.

Pollen is one of the most common triggers of seasonal allergies worldwide. Depending on the season, weeds, grasses and trees release pollen to fertilize their own species. The wind travels the tiny and light pollen but unfortunately they end up in our noses, eyes and lungs as well.With their powdery, granular appearance they look quite delicate and innocent. In some people they will however trigger an allergic reaction. We mostly relate to this as hay fever. Most common symptoms are a runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes but sometimes also symptoms of the lower airways (asthma). In allergy-prone individuals, their immune system reacts to allergenic proteins by generation of IgE antibodies, a process called sensitization. These antibodies will bind to receptors on mast cells and basophils, the effector cells of allergic diseases. If a pollen-sensitized person then gets exposed in pollen season, these effector cells release various mediators such as histamine. These mediators together are at the basis of starting off the allergic symptoms.
