Air purification using essential oils
Bacteria and viruses are ever present in our daily lives with the potential to cause illnesses. Bacteria are microscopic living organisms, usually one-celled, that can be found everywhere. Viruses are infectious microorganisms that cannot grow or reproduce apart from a living cell.
The corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) spreads primarily by way droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose that are carried by air particles in our breathing space. When a corona patient coughs or sneezes, a flow of different-sized droplets or particles are released into our breathing space with the potential of spreading the virus.
The corona virus is especially infectious during the winter months as a result of a climate of closed and heated spaces. When we can influence these room climates we are also able to influence the spread of the virus
One way to influence this room climate is the regular airing of closed spaces to reduce the concentration of virus particles in the air. An additional possibility is the use of essential oils. Scientific case studies have shown that essential oils have antiviral properties that can reduce the risk of the virus spreading.
Our essential oils can be used as an effective disinfectant, preventative and therapeutic in different environments.
