Essential oils in nature protect the plants from bacterial, viral and fungi infestations and this is due to their chemical structure. Our body avails of this possibility thanks to the secondary metabolites that are extracted from the medicinal plants.
There is great scientific evidence on how these essential oils are beneficial in eliminating bacteria, viruses and fungi without developing the problem of pharmaco-resistant effects. An interesting point that will be evaluated is that by simply simple diffusion of an essential oil we can sanitize an environment therefore decrease the exposure risk and consequently the development of, for example respiratory problems. This is fundamental in clinical aromatherapy for example in treating MRSA problems as research demonstrated, it is also very important to know which oils are most active on which bacteria or viruses.
The goal is to give a clear and scientifically sound review of the main essential oils with these properties.
