Antibacterial Essential Oils
I recently wrote an article about anti-viral essential oils which began…
“Now’s the time for us all to start talking about Anti-Viral Essential Oils!”
And, of course, viruses are getting evermore virulent like SARS, Ebola and now Corona Virus, or Convid-19
I go on to say…
“Western medicine has only been able to effectively treat bacterial infections because they have had antibiotics in their tool kit for a few decades. And, it’s made Western medicine seem invincible… but very big cracks are appearing in a very misleading facade…”
As we all know, bacterial infections are now becoming a very serious issue precisely because of antibiotic use, as well as the routine misuse of antibiotics in the rearing of conventional livestock and poultry.
This is why we need Antibacterial Essential Oils like we have never needed them before!
Antibacterial Essential Oils Versus Antibiotics
We were warned by the incredibly able doctors who developed the commercially available forms of antibiotics that low dosage antibiotics, if ever prescribed, would lead to the creation of Super Bugs!
Super Bugs are antibiotic resistant bacteria, and their creation is largely due to this ongoing abuse of antibiotics.
Farmers have been routinely feeding livestock and poultry low level antibiotics for decades because it fattens them up. And, it fattens them up because it makes them unwell.
Obesity is a sign of dysfunction!
Thankfully, antibacterial essential oils, of which there are many, are able to defend us against the increasing number of highly dangerous Super Bugs… these are listed later on in this article.
Antibiotics are also implicated in the creation of mould as a Super Toxin which is causing systemic dysfunction and hormonal issues.
There’s a short series on mould infection in the Wild As The Wind blog…
And, you can learn more about why Antibiotics have been rendered an evil force here:
Bacterial Gut Health
The more we learn about gut health, the more we understand how devastating a single course of antibiotics can be to the long-term health of an individual.
Many healthcare professionals and scientists now understand the use of antibiotics has caused our health to deteriorate, ultimately exposing us to a plethora of life-threatening illnesses over time, which were not often a cause of death the pre-antibiotic era, but are becoming epidemics in the post-antibiotic era.
Thankfully a lot of essential oils can be taken internally, and a lot of the essential oils which are antibacterial are also anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.
So, even if our gut issues are misdiagnosed, the most commonly used essential oils for gut health are going to get to the root cause of the gut dysbiosis.
***Perhaps the most commonly used essential oil for gut health is Oregano Essential Oil.
However, there are blends of wonderful smelling essential oils, like Thieves Oil 2020, which are antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.
Antibacterial Essential Oils Price Range
The majority of essential oils are antibacterial, and, mercifully, most of them are very affordable. Essential oils are made from the plant matter or various plants, shrubs and trees, as well as fruits and seeds.
The price of an essential oil is usually determined by how available the plant matter is, how easy it is to harvest, and how much plant matter is needed.
It takes 45 organic lemon skins to make one 10ml bottle of Organic Lemon Essential Oil. By contrast, it takes one million, two hundred thousand rose petals to make a single 10ml bottle of Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil.
Organic Lemon Essential Oil from Wild As The Wind is £5.00
Wild As The Wind Organic Rose Otto Essential Oil for 2.5ml is £75.00 and is only available on request.
This is why Wild As The Wind Citrus Essential Oils are some of the most affordable essential oils and why Organic Rose Otto Aromatherapy Oil is mainly only used in our most exquisite FACIAL OIL No. 2.
Both Lemon Aromatherapy Oil and Rose Otto Essential Oil are antibacterial.
Antibacterial Essential Oils Have Many Benefits
The real beauty of all of the best antibacterial essential oils is that they are heavily anti-viral as well. However, unlike antibiotics, antibacterial and anti-viral essential oils only kill bad bacteria without damaging our vitally important good bacteria, without which we would not be able to digest our food and 80% of our immune system would be lost.
This is why antibiotic use is so catastrophic to our longterm health.
However, in defense of our doctors, it wasn’t know that gut bacteria plays such a vital role in our health when antibiotics were first introduced. But shame on our “conventional” farmers who persist in using low level antibiotics simply to fatten up their sick animals now that we know how devastating this practice is.
If this isn’t a compelling reason to only buy organic meat then I don’t know what is.
***The use of antibiotics in organic meat production is banned.
Antibacterial Aromatherapy Oils Preserve Good Bacteria
It is our Microbiome which constitutes 80% of our immune system. This is why it is so vitally important essential oils do not harm the beneficial inhabitants of our guts, but also make light work of seeing off the harmful flora.
To understand the importance of our good bacteria as well as our good fungi and friendly viruses, and why the health of our digestion is the foundation of our overall health, please read the article, Gut Health.
Tea Tree Antibacterial Essential Oil
Perhaps the most commonly known antibacterial aromatherapy oil is Tea Tree Essential Oil, aka Ti Tree Essential Oil.
Tea Tree Aromatherapy Oil is a very potent healing essential oil, but is gentle enough to be used on young children. This differentiates it from the even more powerful Oregano Aromatherapy Oil, which should be used very sparingly on children at a very high dilution, if ever used at all.
Thankfully we have Vitamin C with it’s anti-viral and antibacterial actions for the very young!
Tea Tree Essential Oil is antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. As these are the four main ways in which we become infected, this makes Tea Tree Essential Oil a veritable panacea in a single bottle, which is capable of dealing with most of the apparent health threats that exist today.
Tea Tree Essential oil will also see off MRSA, (aka Mercer), as will Peppermint Essential Oil and Thyme (White) Essential Oil (Thymol Chemotype). A couple of other aromatherapy oils in this list are also effective against MRSA. Read on to discover them…
Oregano Antibacterial Essential Oil
Unfortunately, the creation of Super Bugs and now the seeming emergence of Super Viruses, means, in extreme cases, Tea Tree Essential Oil is not enough on it’s own to get the job done.
In those instances, it’s time to bring in the ‘big guns’!
Oregano Essential Oil is one of those very special aromatherapy oils which kills Mercer, or MRSA.
Oregano Essential Oil is, without doubt, the most potent antibacterial and anti-viral combination essential oil there is, but like Tea Tree Essential Oil, Oregano Essential Oil is also anti-fungal and anti-parasitic into the bargain.
These Xenoestrogens are everywhere within our home and work environments, as well as within the school our children attend.
Xenoestrogens are present in modern fabrics, home furnishings, plastics (particularly in our food supply), carpets, office and school furniture, public transport, aeroplanes and cars etc, etc, which seriously compromise our health.
Our hormones are chemical messengers which provide our bodies with constant input to ensure homeostasis and optimal health, which simply means our hormones go a long way to keeping everything in balance. Any challenges to our hormones, like those from Xenoestrogens, will ensure a deterioration in our overall health. For more information read Hormone Disrupting Substances & Cures.
Cinnamon Antibacterial Essential Oil
The beautifully scented Cinnamon Essential Oil, which is incredibly warming, and deceptively innocuous, is another aromatherapy oil which is a potent antibacterial aromatherapy oil with anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic abilities.
Cinnamon Aromatherapy Oil is also immune boosting, and so it acts as a great preventative as well as an impressive cure for many common infections.
Cinnamon Essential Oil is however, likely to dole out a burn or two to those who use it in a slap-dash manner. Cinnamon Aromatherapy Oil must ALWAYS be properly diluted in a good carrier oil before use, and care must be taken whilst making your dilution.
Clove Antibacterial Essential Oil
Another gorgeously scented aromatherapy oil, Clove Essential Oil is a potent antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic essential oil.
Clove Aromatherapy Oil is also an homeostasis supporting essential, which means it is a great preventative as well as a great cure for most of the common infections we’re likely to contract, just like Cinnamon Essential Oil, .
Rosemary Antibacterial Essential Oil
In the world of aromatherapy, the combining of essential oils makes the sum more potent than the individual parts. The combining of Clove Essential Oil with Rosemary Essential Oil is a very good example of this.
Rosemary Aromatherapy Oil is another antibacterial and anti-viral essential oil with antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial abilities.
Thyme Antibacterial Essential Oil
Thyme Essential Oil is yet another anti-viral essential oil with antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial actions, And, it’s a great immune-boosting tonic into the bargain!
Thyme Aromatherapy Oil is also critically important for hormone balance as it is a natural Progesterone.
Thyme (White) Essential Oil, (Thymol Chemotype), as opposed to Red Thyme, or Sweet Thyme Essential Oil, (Linalool Chemotype), will kill MRSA. However, Red / Sweet Thyme Aromatherapy Oil, (Linalool Chemotype), is not effective against MRSA.
Clary Sage Antibacterial Essential Oil
Clary Sage Aromatherapy Oil is one of the Mrsa killing essential oils, which is also vital for our hormonal health. Clary Sage Aromatherapy Oil blends very well with most of the essential oils in this list.
Whilst being profoundly antibacterial, it has many virtues. For example, it’s also a natural sedative as well as being an effective analgesic.
There’s no question Clary Sage Aromatherapy Oil is a very important essential oil.
Getting enough sleep is THE best way to stay well and heal when we get unwell!
Other Important Antibacterial Aromatherapy Oils
The truth is, pretty much all of the essential oils have antibacterial activity. But it’s their additional benefits which allow us to blend the perfect combination of essential oils for our specific needs at any given time. For example, Frankincense Aromatherapy Oil is highly anti-inflammatory, analgesic as well as being immune-boosting! So addingFrankincense to a body rub when you have a bacterial infection might be just what you need…?
Sweet Orange Aromatherapy Oil is uplifting, antibacterial, and a great tonic. It is also great for motion sickness and feelings of nausea.
One of the other benefits of Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil is that it can be taken internally, as well as through inhalation and so it is very easily administered.
Drinking Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil scented water will also help to recondition the digestive track,
Of course, Sweet Orange Aromatherapy Oil is profoundly antibacterial and is also a great aromatherapy oil for using all year round. This is because it is antioxidant and immune-boosting.
Sweet Orange Essential Oil can be used continuously for long periods of time. However, it is always wise to take a break from even the most gentle essential oils… Everything will ultimately prove toxic over time, especially where uninterrupted use is concerned… it’s why we are taught to vary our diets, and to change our shampoo etc…
Aromatherapy Oil Blends For Preventing Bacterial Infection
Using Citrus Aromatherapy Oils as a preventative, regularly interchanging them, is a great way of preventing illness. As long as you are using Organic Citrus Essential Oils they can be taken internally.
Just add a drop or two of your favourite Citrus Aromatherapy Essential Oil to a glass of water and sip.
**Do not exceed 12 drops of essential oil consumption
**Avoid topical application of the photo-toxic Citrus Essential Oils in the sunnier months.
A great benefit of Citrus Essential Oils is they help maintain a healthy weight and will encourage weight loss in those carrying too much extra padding.
There’s three Wild As The Wind blended products which I would advise people to use as antibacterial salves. These are:
Both Flying Oil and Thieves Oil 2020 contain sufficient Oregano Essential Oil to assist in the treatment or MRSA.
