ESSENTIAL OILS TO HELP REDUCE INFECTION
The antimicrobial, antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibacterial effectiveness of essential oils have long been established. Tea Tree oil was part of the Australian army's standard medical kit during WW2 and was only abandoned when pharmaceutical antibiotics were developed. Extensive clinical trials are proven that some essential oils are effective in fighting mild infection.
As antibiotic resistance has become a significant medical crisis, interest in the medicinal use of essential oils is increasing.* The oils in this collection are effective treatments for a wide range of mild infections however it is always better to consult a Doctor if you suspect you have a recurring or serious infection.
*(As natural compounds cannot be licensed pharmaceutical companies have tended to leave essential oils out of their research)
