Renowned for their anti bacterial and antiviral properties interest in Essential Oils always come to the fore at times of outbreak of infectious disease.  What are the top ten?

Here is a useful article by Dominique Baudoux a leading pharmacist and aromatherapist whose books have kept alive so much research and inspired more studies.   Antibacterial and Antiviral properties

Clove      Ravensara ............................

We are very proud that academic institutions choose Shirley price oils for their students and researchers choose Shirley Price oils for their researches.  Is the choice of essential oils just of academic interest?  No the properties of essential oils do not depend solely on the headline ingredients.  If they did aromatherapists would simply use cheaper non pure essential oils and easily made essential oils with nature identical ingredients like synthetic linalool.  Experience has shown these synthetics to be useful for fragrance or flavour purposes but 'lifeless' for therapeutic purposes.

And what are Essentia's top ten essential oils and absolutes for family use?

Chamomile will soothe, Lemon will remove a wart and crush skin infection, Lavender will make baby's bathtime a delight (fresh Jojoba vegetable oil will banish nappy rash), Peppermint for concentration,  Pine for the lungs, Rosemary for the memory! Tea tree for the feet, now I can be indulgent  Rose otto,   Jasmine and Sandalwood .....................
