Did you know that Essential Oils fight Superbugs?

Essential oils could be a cheap and effective alternative to antibiotics and potentially used to combat drug-resistant hospital superbugs, according to research presented at the Society for General Microbiology’s meeting in Edinburgh.

Professor Yiannis Samaras and Dr Effimia Eriotou, from the Technological Educational Institute of Ionian Islands, in Greece, who led the research, tested the antimicrobial activity of eight plant essential oils. They found that thyme essential oil was the most effective and was able to almost completely eliminate bacteria within 60 minutes.
The essential oils of thyme and cinnamon were found to be particularly efficient antibacterial agents against a range of Staphylococcus species. Strains of these bacteria are common inhabitants of the skin and some may cause infection in immunocompromised individuals. Drug-resistant strains, such as meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are extremely difficult to treat. “Not only are essential oils a cheap and effective treatment option for antibiotic-resistant strains, but decreased use of antibiotics will help minimize the risk of new strains of antibiotic resistant micro-organisms emerging,” said Professor Samaras.

Essential oils have been recognised for hundreds of years for their therapeutic properties, although very little is still known about how they exert their antimicrobial effects in humans. Australian aborigines used Tea tree oil to treat colds, sore throats, skin infections and insect bites and the remedy was sold commercially as a medicinal antiseptic from the early 20th century. Various scientific studies have demonstrated that essential oils are not only well tolerated, but are effective against a range of bacterial and fungal species. Their therapeutic value has been shown for the treatment of a variety of conditions, including acne, dandruff, head lice and oral infections.

The Greek team believes essential oils could have diverse medical and industrial applications. “The oils — or their active ingredients — could be easily incorporated into antimicrobial creams or gels for external application. In the food industry the impregnation of food packaging with essential oils has already been successfully trialed. They could also be included in food stuffs to replace synthetic chemicals that act as preservatives,” they said.    Source: Society for General Microbiology

Essential oils are necessary, here's why...

Hello from the ever fragrant studio of the Aromatic Alchemist. It has been a most interesting start to our 2013. I have been busy formulating custom blends for many who have been inundated with a series of bugs and viruses.

My reason for writing today is to give you the tools you need to succeed in your life in a healthy, happy way. I want to tell you of the importance of using essential oils in your life, not only in sickness but in health.

As many of you know, essential oils are the regenerating, oxygenating and immune defending properties of a plant and that is exactly what it is doing for you and your body. Essential oils are so small in their molecular size that they quickly penerate tissues of the skin, thus going to the bloodstream and to every organ of your body. These oils will affect EVERY cell of the body within 20 minutes of skin contact and will reach the limbic system of the brain within 5 seconds of inhalation.

All essential oils are lipid soluble meaning they are capable of penerating cell walls, even those hardened by oxygen deficiency. They contain oxygen molecules that transport nutrients to straving human cells.  Did you know that all dis-ease begins when cells lack oxygen and that essential oils stimulate immune mechanisms in the body? They are powerful antioxidants that act as free radial scavengers.

That is my rant for the day. May you be beyond blessed and have gratitude for all that is.  Until next time...

Your Grateful Aromatic Alchemist,
