Determination Of Essential Oils In Vegetable Drugs

The determination of essential oils in vegetable drugs is carried out by steam distillation in a special apparatus in the conditions described below. The distillate is collected in the graduated tube, using xylene to take up the essential oil the aqueous phase is automatically returned to the distillation flask.

Botanical Identification

This section exclusively addresses the diagnostic morphological and anatomical features of vascular plants and the various plant parts, such as roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds, from which pharmaceuticals, excipients, or dietary supplements are derived. Vascular plants include pteridophytes (ferns and fern allies for example, genera Aspidium, Equisetum, and Lycopodium), gymnosperms (seed plants, in which the seed is not enclosed within a fruit for example, genera Ephedra, Gingko, and Pinus), and angiosperms (seed plants, in which the seed is enclosed within a fruit for example, genera Allium, Digitalis, Panax, Matricaria, and Rauwolfia). Anatomical diagnostic features that are specified in an individual monograph (see Botanic characteristics in individual monographs) may include, but are not limited to, the presence of a particular tissue within an organ the arrangement and type of cells within a tissue the presence and type of secretory canal, oil, or resin duct or...

Options for Pain Management

The following discussion reviews options for labor analgesia, including nonmedicated and medicated pain relief methods. Nonpharmacologic analgesia techniques include prepared childbirth (LaMaze), aromatherapy, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, and transcutaneous electrical stimulation. Pharmacologic techniques include systemic analgesia, regional analgesia, and nerve blocks.

Adjunctive and Experimental Therapies

A study of sensory and affective ischemic pain discrimination after inhalation of essential oils led to the conclusion that aromatherapy may not elicit a direct analgesic effect but instead may alter affective appraisal of the experience and consequent retrospective evaluation of treatment-related pain. Hyperbaric oxygenation combined with streptokinase for treatment of arterial thromboembolism of the lower extremity resulted in regression of ischemic pain and prolongation of the survival time of tissues compromised by ischemia. One report suggests that hypnosis may serve as an efficacious adjunct to standard medical care in the management of peripheral arterial occlusive disease.

Colloidal silver honey and helichrysum oil antiseptic composition and method of application

Silver sulfadiazine cream, is disclosed as an apparatus in U.S. Pat. No. 4,551,139 to Plaas. The use of silver sulfadiazine with reference to possible aerosol dispersal of wet spray of hydrophilic ointment is found in U.S. Pat. No. 3,761,590 to Fox. Helichrysum angustifolium and italicum (also referred to as immortelle and everlasting) are natural plant oils and are recognized as essential oils with properties promoting the healing process, in human and animal, of traumatic wounds including burns. Helichrysum is the distilled oil produced from flowering heads of Helichrysum Angustifolium D.C. or Italicum and is generally known for the ability to enhance human or animal wound healing and is generally accepted to have antispasmodic, analgesic, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory characteristics in relation to treatment of human or animal trauma. It is also reported to abate bleeding from wounds and in the reduction of scar tissue (The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aroma-Therapy,...

Mentha pulegium L

Pennyroyal has been used historically as a tea for headache, teething, restlessness, colic, and fevers in children. It is rich in essential oils and has stimulating diaphoretic activity. The highly concentrated essential oil has also been used as an abortifacient sometimes with fatal outcomes thus bringing the safety of the general use of pennyroyal into question. The diluted oil is popular for external use as an insect repellant against mosquitoes and fleas.


Many pharmaceutical products undergo oxidative deterioration upon storage because the therapeutic ingredients or adjuvants oxidize in the presence of atmospheric oxygen. Vitamins, essential oils, and almost all fats and oils can be oxidized readily. The decomposition can be particularly significant in disperse systems, such as emulsions, because of the large area of interfacial contact and because the manufacturing process may introduce air into the product. Many drugs commonly incorporated into emulsions are subjected to autoxidation and subsequent decomposition. Traces of oxidation products are undesirable as they are generally easily noticed by their smell and or taste. The term autoxidation is used when the ingredient(s) in the product react(s) with oxygen without drastic external interference. Series of autoxidative reactions involve the initiation step or the formation of a free radical, the propagation step where the free radical is regenerated and reacts with more oxygen,...

Solventbased methods

Steam distillation This is mainly used to extract essential oils from plants and can be on small and industrial scales. The extract is either boiled with water or has steam from an independent source passed through it. The total pressure of the immiscible liquid mixture of oil and water is the sum of the partial pressures of the components. Consequently, the mixture boils at a temperature lower than the boiling point temperature of each of the pure individual components. As a result, the oils co-distil with water. The oils are separated from the distillate by either allowing the oil and water layers to separate or by extraction into an organic solvent. However, steam distillation cannot be used to extract compounds such as esters, which are hydrolysed by water, or compounds that are thermally unstable.


Fractional distillation and steam distillation may be used to separate volatile compounds. These processes have a limited use and are normally only used to separate essential oils from plant material. Essential or volatile oils are used as pharmaceuticals, perfumery, flavourings and as the starting materials for the synthesis of other substances. These oils are commercially extracted on a large scale from many plants by steam distillation. For example, peppermint oil is obtained from two plant varieties, Mentha piperita var. vulgaris and Mentha piperita var. officinalis, by steam distillation.


Phenylpropanoids are widespread in higher plants, especially in the plants that produce essential oils, e.g. plants of the families, Apiaceae, Lamiaceae, Lauraceae, Myrtaceae and Rutaceae. For example, Tolu balsam (Myroxylon balsamum, family Fabaceae) yields a high concentration of cinnamic acid esters, cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum, family Lauraceae) produces cinnamaldehyde, fennel (Foeniculum vulgare, family Apiaceae) is a good

Stability Testing

Herbal substances are a diverse range of botanical materials including leaves, herbs, roots, flowers, seeds, bark, and so on. A comprehensive specification must be developed for each herbal substance even if the starting material for the manufacture of the finished product is a herbal preparation. In the case of fatty or essential oils used as active substances of herbal medicinal products, a specification for the herbal substance is required unless justified. The specification should be established on the basis of recent scientific data and should be set out in the same way as the European Pharmacopoeia monographs. The general monograph Herbal drugs (herbal substances) of the European Pharmacopoeia should be consulted for interpretation of the following requirements. 5. Assay In the case of herbal substances with constituents of known therapeutic activity, assays of their content are required with details of the analytical procedure. Wherever possible, a specific,...

Glossary of Terms

Herbal preparations These are obtained by subjecting herbal substances to treatments, such as extraction, distillation, expression, fractionation, purification, concentration, or fermentation. These include comminuted or powdered herbal substances, tinctures, extracts, essential oils, expressed juices, and processed exudates. Plant preparations Comminuted or powdered plant material, extracts, tinctures, fatty or essential oils, resins, gums, balsams, expressed juices, and so on, prepared from plant material, and preparations whose production involves a fractionation, purification or concentration process, but excluding chemically defined isolated constituents. A plant preparation can be regarded as the active ingredient whether or not the constituents having therapeutic activities are known.
