Back to school does not need to mean back to colds, flu
and other viruses! We all have heard that
the overuse of antibiotics have raised several strains of bacteria resistant to them. We know that hospitals are constantly fighting a losing a battle against
super-bugs like MRSA. Now researchers
have discovered that essential oils - like cinnamon – kill
bacteria –even those strains that have become resistant to
antibiotics. In fact, cinnamon essential oil has been studied to be one of the most powerful antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal & antimicrobial tools we have. Cinnamon essential oil’s powerful properties so impressed researchers that some are recommending a 10% cinnamon oil solution be used as an alternative to several different kinds of antiseptics used in hospitals.*
In the same way, you can protect your home and family from viruses and bacteria with cinnamon and other powerful antimicrobial essential oils. Another benefit is that these essential oils are healing to the lungs. They are also absorbed by the skin and have powerful antioxidant and immune boosting properties.
The powerful blend in Josiah’s Germ Fighting Oil contains cinnamon, clove, lemon, orange & rosemary essential oils. Use this blend to diffuse in your home - killing airborne pathogens, as a hand sanitizer, and also add it to water to disinfect surfaces in your home. Try it this fall and have a healthier school year!
(*study published in the Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, a multinational team of surgeons from Australia, Germany, and the UK, tested the antimicrobial efficacy of a
range of essential oils against several strains of bacteria and Candida which
commonly cause hospital acquired infections. They were especially concerned with
finding oils effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) which has become a major problem in hospitals and can cause severe soft
tissue and bone infections.)
