You read that right! Oregano essential oil in particular, but there are a few others that help out when you have a cold or the flu.
Essential oils have also been proven to kill MRSA (a nasty form of staff infection) which is known as a super bug because of its amazing resistance to antibiotics. Scientists at the University of the West of England in Bristol working with partners in India found that "tiny quantities of Carvacrol, a naturally occurring compound in oregano, is a more effective antimicrobial agent than 18 pharmaceutical drugs it was compared against."
Pretty impressive huh? So how do essential oils do that?
Allow me to get technical for a moment…
A very popular way to use essential oils is to diffuse them into the air. Because essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the skin via pores and enter directly into the blood stream. Another common method of application is rubbing them on the bottom of your feet because the pores of the skin there are some of the largest found on the human body.
Essential oils are lipid soluble and are capable of penetrating cell walls, even if they’ve hardened because of an oxygen deficiency. In fact, essential oils can affect every cell of the body within 20 minutes and then be metabolized like other nutrients. No carriers are needed for this process, although it’s common to mix a drop or two of essential oil with a nickel sized drop of carrier oil such as pure fractionated coconut oil if applying topically to a large area (common if used as aromatherapy in a massage or for treating a skin rash of some kind, etc.)
Not only can essential oils kill different types of bacteria, but because of their ability to penetrate cell walls they have the distinct ability to kill viruses as well! So the next time you go to the doctor and it’s determined you have a viral infection just remember there are a myriad of oils that can actually kill the virus. You don’t have to just “drink lots of liquids and get plenty sleep and allow the virus to run its course.” Nor do you have to cover up the symptoms with synthetic medications that often have dangerous side effects just so you can function normally.
Only doTERRA essential oils should be taken internally. Other oils can be diffused and applied topically to the skin, but only doTERRA oils are tested for their purity, guaranteeing there are no other additives, synthetics, or harmful substances. This is only one of the reasons I choose only doTERRA.
So what does all this mean? It means you truly have the ability to take charge of your family’s health with doTERRA oils! You are in the driver’s seat. You have an all natural tool that gives you more control of you health and wellnes
