Did you know that it's plants out there that can fight bacteria? We rely so much on man made items and it's nothing wrong with that but let's not forget the simple ingredients we can find in our own backyards such as essential oils. Which is the oils that are extracted from plants, flowers and fruits. They have some powerful properties and I've personally been trying to get back to using more of those natural ingredients from the earth. Today, I want to share with you five bacteria fighting essential oils you should own.
Best Essential Oils For Fighting Bacteria
- Peppermint Oil
- Lemon Oil
- Eucalyptus Oil
- Oregano Oil
- Tea Tree Oil
Peppermint oil is a great natural bacteria fighter, I prefer to use this oil in my roller blend recipes, because it is a little too strong for me to just use on its own. Peppermint oil is also great for soothing coughs and even pain. Lemon essential oil, is a great energy booster, and cold symptom fighter so it's also really good for cleaning, and diffusing to purify the air and your environment. Eucalyptus is another great oil to use for pain relief and even as a bacteria fighter, it's very similar to peppermint oil but a little lighter in scent. I love pairing eucalyptus with lavender essential oil to create a pleasant natural scent that's great for cleansing objects in my home.
Oregano Oil is known as a natural antibiotic and it is very powerful. This is one that is a little harder to find but still amazing for fighting bacteria. I dilute this one extremely well and use it in a roller blend bottle. Tea tree oil is last but not least as a bacteria fighter, I usually use this one in roller blend bottles, disinfectants, toothpaste recipes, and more. Tea tree oil actually became my natural alternative to bleach, I thought I would never let go of that bleach lol but I really do not miss it.
Budget Friendly Bacteria Fighting Essential Oils You Must Try
I have a few brands of essential oils that I have tried and used but the most budget friendly essential oil brand I have found so far is Plant Therapy. I bought the smaller package for like $40 and loved it, they also have a 14 bottle set for only $99 is a great deal and they work just as well as some of my more expensive bottles.
I always thought that I had to use the expensive brands, because those were the best quality essential oils, but I was wrong. I didn't need to spend hundreds of dollars to get access to organic high quality oils. So I absolutely love this brand and looking forward to finding even more products off their site.
Ways to Use These Essential Oils To Fight Bacteria and Disinfect
I have been struggling to find simple ingredients in the store so it's time to get creative. If I was looking to replace my antibacterial soaps, I would use castile soap with a few drops of tea tree to fight the bacteria and whichever other oil I wanted to create a pleasant smell.
You could make:
1. Antibacterial Soap
2. Disinfectant spray
3. Roll on recipe to fight bacteria topically
The ideas are endless, when it comes to the versatility of the essential oils we have. I hope this blog helps if you have any ideas to add please comment them down below.
Which Other Oils Fight Bacteria
There is so many other uses and benefits these oils might be able to help you with, I figured it would be a good idea to make it a little easier than searching google for hours and hours, so I created a simple essential oil dictionary. It is one of the first books I published on amazon, but I recently decided to turn it into an eBook so you can get it instantly. Use code Twenty23 to get a discount.
Thank you for taking time to read this blog, I hope you found this helpful. Just wanted to remind you that you are amazing and your journey is beautiful. Embrace the growth, and continue to be patient as you get back to the simple life you desire. You are loved!
