ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to extract Eucalyptus oil and Coleus aromaticus oil, and to formulate the lozenge tablets in order to investigate a profitable dosage form. Lozenge tablets were prepared using Roller compression method. The tablets also were evaluated for the physicochemical properties such as hardness, friability, weigh uniformity, thickness and disintegration time. The formulated product showed inhibitory activity against non resistant C.albicans infections thus providing a very good release matrix for the eucalyptus and coleus aromaticus combined extract. The results clearly indicate that the prepared lozenge tablets can be a good alternative for traditional forms.

Keywords: Eucalyptus oil, Coleus aromaticus. lozenge, roller compression, oropharyngeal, inflammation.
