The illustration above is of the herb Eucalyptus. A traditional Aboriginal fever remedy, Eucalyptus was introduced to the West in the 19th century by the director of the Melbourne Botanical Gardens, and cultivation of the tree spread in southern Europe and North America. The properties of oils from different species vary slightly, but all are very antiseptic.The tree's amazing ability to dry out marshy soil led to its use in eradicating the malaria mosquito in many parts of the world.
