HoPE Essential Oils as Antiseptic

Essential oils have been recognized for quite some time for their healing and aromatic properties. What a lot of people don’t realize is that essential oils are great for killing viruses, fungi and bacteria. They are also great at preventing illness and various skin conditions. Essential oils are a fantastic choice if you are looking for a safe way to eliminate microbes and disinfect surfaces around your home.
The Antibiotic Resistance Crisis
So why would you use antiseptic essential oils instead of antibiotics? There is an antibiotic crisis happening at the moment and a lot of experts believe that this is because bacteria is becoming resistant to more and more antibiotics. With antibiotics being over-prescribed, it is now more important than ever for you to stop using antibiotics wherever possible. The best way to prevent illness is to disinfect your skin and the surfaces in your home, and essential oils are a great way for you to do both!
Eucalyptus is one of the most powerful oils out there when it comes to disinfecting counters and even your skin. Eucalyptus oil is also ideal for treating wounds, burns, sores and abrasions. Treating wounds with eucalyptus oil helps speed up the healing process and limit the exposure to air. Because of its antimicrobial properties, some dentists even choose eucalyptus oils as sealers and solvents for root canal fillings.

This oil is very uplifting and is famous for its antibacterial properties. It is also great because it can give you some resistance against viruses. It has a strong flavour and it is widely used because of its medicinal properties. Peppermint oil is sometimes used in dentistry to prevent infections and it also has a fresh and minty flavour. It helps defend your body against fungal infections and it can greatly reduce the chance of you needing antibiotics.
Lavender Oil

Lavender oil can lull you to sleep and it can also provide you with the feeling of tranquility and calm. On top of this, it is ideal for boosting your immunity and it can also increase your resistance against viruses and bacteria. It is considered to be the best course of treatment if you have psoriasis and acne. It also helps speed up healing of scar tissues.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree oil has high anti-fungal and antibacterial properties making it an ideal disinfectant. It is best used with lavender oil to give it a lovelier aroma and help you get rid of musty smells around your home.
There are a lot of other essential oils you can use as disinfectant but these are the top essential oils which have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. To use them to disinfect your counters and cooking surfaces, dilute your favorite essential oil with rubbing alcohol or distilled water in a clean spray bottle then spray on surfaces and wipe with a clean cloth. For a fresher scent, you can even blend several essential oils together. Not only your home will be clean, it will also smell fresh!
