Introduced to Europe in 1788, Eucalyptus was being used as an antiseptic during surgery by the 1880s. Eucalyptus, being a very thirsty tree, has also been used to fight malaria in swampy regions; the trees are planted and will drink up much of the surrounding water, thereby depriving mosquitos of their necessary breeding environment.
