TECHNOLOGICAL PROSPECTION OF ESSENTIAL OIL OF AROEIRA (Schinus terebinthifolius RADDI.)
The pepper tree (Schinus terebinthifolius Raddi.) is a Brazilian species with great importance in the
global scenario for several traits of interest, among them, the value of herbal essential oil. In order
to obtain information about the use of the essential oil of this plant a survey was carried out in
databases of scientific, technological research and patents; as well as in sites of Ministries of
Health, and Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, and also in the National Agency of Sanitary
Vigilance. The academic papers confirm the therapeutic potential of antimicrobial of pepper tree,
and its essential oils present in many of bactericides and fungicides formulations. However, the
small number of patents corroborates the little registry of herbal medicines in control and certification agencies such as the Ministries of Health, Agriculture, Livestock and Supply, and also
in Sanitary Vigilance.
