Strengthen your immune system with Lavender essential oil; one of the best oils to choose for health and longevity. Here's why, along with the methods of application I recommend and other essential oils to choose for making a powerful immune stimulant blend.
LAVENDER ( Lavendula augustifolia ) - Highly scented Lavender has a distinctly sweet floral-spice aroma that's a little wild and woody. Distilling at high altitude allows lower temperatures and lower pressure for distillation making it possible for the volatile phytochemicals to come through intact in the final product.
Lavender oil stimulates the formation of white blood cells and strengthens the body's immune system and is a popular preventative for bronchitis, cold and flu.
Lavender contains proven natural anti-bacterial ingredients. Its antiseptic properties are known to prevent and halt infection.
Researchers are continuing studies to learn if essential oils are effective against the super bug MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) among other strains of bacteria.
An ongoing research project is underway using a body/hand wash, containing essential oils of lavender and tea tree that if left on the skin for a period of time and then washed off, could be effective against MRSA.
Different strengths and combinations of essential oils mixtures that are 100% effective in the laboratory have been tested. A particular combination of these essential oils has killed the MRSA bacteria in a laboratory culture.
The results have been repeated and replicated for particular combinations that kill MRSA bacteria in a laboratory culture. Thus far no single essential oil has been found that completely kills the bacteria.
Tests with a "leave on" version of various essential oils mixtures has also been tested which also kill the MRSA bacteria under laboratory conditions. Human trials are now being organized for further testing.
