Phytochemical and Biopharmaceutical Aspects of Psidium guajava (L.) Essential Oil: A Review

B. Joseph and R.M. Priya

Research Journal of Medicinal Plants, 2011, 5(4), 432-442.

Abstract

Essential oils distilled from aromatic and medicinal plants have been used both cosmetically and therapeutically. Nowadays, Psidium guajava L. plant parts are commonly used as medicinal plant. Although, there is considerable anecdotal information about the biological activity of guava essential oils much of this has not been substantiated by scientific evidence. Among the claims made for Psidium guajava (L.) essential oil is that have antimicrobial, antinociceptive, repellent, insecticidal, anticancer and anti-inflammatory effects. In this study we detail the current state of knowledge about the effect of guava essential oils and phytochemicals.
