Here’s a breakdown of each oil’s protective and healing properties –
Clove oil has biological activities such as antibacterial, antifungal, insecticidal and antioxidant properties SOURCE. The high levels of eugenol contained in clove essential oil are responsible for its strong biological and antimicrobial activities.
It has traditionally been used as an antimicrobial to help kill bacteria and relieve respiratory conditions like cough and asthma.
In a 2012 STUDY researchers found that clove oil had the ability to kill staph bacteria cells. Most antibiotics aren’t effective at penetrating the biofilm and killing staph bacteria but, according to this study, clove oil seems to be able to.
A 2018 STUDY looked at the effect of essential oils on a variety of bacteria that cause respiratory infections, such as pneumonia and influenza. Although the effects were lower than the antibiotics tested, clove oil did have antibacterial activity when added to liquid culture. SOURCE
Cinnamon oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum / Ceylon cinnamon) has been cultivated and admired from ancient times. It has been a part of ancient Egyptian, Indian and Chinese civilizations. In Europe and India cinnamon is used as a traditional remedy for aching muscles and symptoms of viral conditions such as colds and flu.
Cinnamon essential oil contains a number of compounds thought to influence health. These compounds include cinnamaldehyde, which has been found in a STUDY to reduce inflammation and act as an antimicrobial which is a substance that destroys or suppresses the growth of microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi. In another STUDY it was found that bacteria from Staphylococcus, Enterococcus, Enterobacter and Acinetobacter genera were susceptible to essential oil obtained from Cinnamomum zeylanicum in low concentrations, despite the fact that the bacteria characterised a high resistance to recommended antibiotics.
It combats hard-to-treat bacterial organisms. RESEARCH which used bacterial cultures and lab tests, found that compounds in cinnamon oil had an antimicrobial effect against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a potentially life-threatening, drug-resistant bacteria that affects plants, people, and other animals.
Rosemary Oil is a rich antioxidant and works as an anti-inflammatory. In a STUDY it has been shown to work effectively on antibiotic resistant bacteria. Rosemary may weaken the cell walls of antibiotic-resistant bacteria: – SOURCE not only damaging them but also enabling antibiotics to enter. STUDIES have shown that rosemary oil also improves cognitive function / memory.
Eucalyptus oil Originally native to Australia, eucalyptus trees are now grown all over the world and used for their medicinal properties. It supports the immune system, acts as an anti-inflammatory and improves respiratory circulation.
Today, most over-the-counter cough, cold and flu medications have eucalyptus oil as one of their active ingredients. Eucalyptus oil treats respiratory conditions such as asthma and sinusitis and treats coughs. The oil reacts with mucous membranes, not only reducing mucus but also helping loosen it so that mucus can be coughed up. It’s also possible that eucalyptus blocks asthma symptoms.
The essential oil extracted from eucalyptus oil is used in the treatment of respiratory diseases and is an antibacterial agent against S. aureus and E. coli. SOURCE
Lemon oil The health benefits of lemon oil can be attributed to its stimulating, uplifting, antiseptic, disinfectant, anti-infection, detoxifying, astringent and anti-fungal properties. It can kill harmful viruses and bacteria, reduce inflammation, fight exhaustion, help with depression, clear the skin and disinfect surfaces.
Lemon oil is a great boost for the body’s immune system. It stimulates white blood cells thus increasing the ability to fight off diseases. It also improves blood circulation throughout the body. Its vitamin C and antioxidant properties are of benefit for healing sore throats and because lemon oil holds many cleansing and purifying properties when used topically (on the skin) it can assist with respiratory discomfort. It is also believed that lemon oil is useful for keeping asthma under control since inhaling the aroma of lemons can clear the nasal passages and sinuses, promoting good air flow and steady breathing.
Lemon essential oil is a potent antibacterial against Bacillus cereus, Mycobacterium smegmatis, Listeria monocytogenes, Lactobacillus curvatus, L. sakei, Micrococcus luteus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudococcus aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Enterobacter gergoviae, E. ammnigenus, Staphylococcus aureus, S. carnosus, and S. xylosus, and a strong antifungal against Aspergillus niger, A. flavus, Penicillium verrucosum, P. chrysogenum, Kluyveromyces fragilis, Rhodotorula rubra, Candida albicans, Hanseniaspora guilliermondii, and Debaryomyces hansenii SOURCE.
IMMUNITY BOOST MIST is fortified by the healing energy of the name of Panacea, the goddess of cures and panaceas in the form of remedies, medicines, salves and other curatives. She was an attendant of her father, the medicine-god Asklepios (Asclepius).
