Essential oils make some of the most powerful antibacterial products around. While there are a number of essential oils which are perfect for keeping bacteria at bay, there are seven of them which stand head and shoulders above the rest. It is these that we will be taking a look at on this page.

Number One: Eucalyptus

This has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. It is often used to treat wounds such as burns and cuts. In addition to this, you can actually find eucalyptus in a variety of different dental products. This is because it is brilliant at fighting cavities and keeping various dental conditions at bay.

Number Two: Peppermint

Peppermint, as you may well know, is used for dental purposes. Most toothpaste on the market is mint flavored. This isn’t just because it tastes good, but because it is a powerful antibacterial. In addition to this, it can help to fight nail infection. When consumed (not via toothpaste) it can also provide a nice little boost to the immune system which will keep your health in tip-top condition.

Number Three: Lavender

Lavender is a powerful antibacterial. It is used to treat a variety of different skin conditions. However, it is most effective on acne and psoriasis. In fact, this is one of the main reasons as to why you will find Lavender added to some of the most popular skin care products out there on the market. It helps to prevent acne.

In addition to this, acne is known for its ability to provide a person with protection from bacteria if they are dealing with a cut or sunburn.

Number Four: Tea Tree Oil

This can be applied directly to the skin. The others will, likely, have to be diluted with some other oil. Tea tree oil is often used to deal with skin infections. This includes warts, eczema, and acne. However, it has also been proven to be useful when it comes to the treatment of athlete’s foot. Tea Tree Oil is actually one of only a few products out there on the market which your doctor will recommend that you keep to hand at all times. It is just that useful!

Number Five: Bergamot

Bergamot is not oil that you can apply to your skin. Well, you can do that, but most of the benefit occurs when it is ingested. This is because it can help to fight off urinary tract infections, meningitis etc.

Number six: Lemongrass

This can help fight off bacteria in a number of different situations. For example, lemongrass is known for its ability to combat body odor, malaria, and bacteria which causes food poisoning. It also acts as a natural antiseptic. This means that you can use it when you are dealing with cuts and scrapes.

Number seven: Oregano

Finally, Oregano is an essential oil which has been used since ancient Greece. Back then, they discovered that it was brilliant at fighting off infections and bacteria on the skin. You can use it for the same purpose now. You can also use it to boost your immune system. It really helps that it is delicious too!

Traditional Skincare Usage

Bergamot oil is used for:

  • Medicines
  • Treating infections
  • Improving digestion
  • Lowering fever
  • Earl Grey Tea

Precautions

  • Consult a Professional Before Using Bergamot oil is safe for use but I would advise you to consult a physician before using it for your treatment. Also, do not apply it to young children and pregnant women.
  • Not Safe for Consuming Bergamot Oil should not be consumed directly as some people have said that it can be fatal. Also, it can cause you twitching and muscle cramps because it removes potassium stores in your body. 
  • Bergamot Oil Can Increase Your Chances of Sun Damage Do not use the oil with photosensitizing drugs such as Noroxin (Norfloxacin), Floxin (Ofloxacin), Cipro (Ciprofloxacin), Levaquin (levofloxacin), and, Maxaquin (lomefloxacin). As this can lead you to very severe reactions.

Homemade Earl Grey Tea for Skin:

  • Use fresh cold water from the kettle.
  • Boil it to 208° Fahrenheit.
  • Warm the pot so your tea doesn’t cool down too fast and stays hot for a longer time.
  • Adjust the measurement. One teaspoon should be used for a six-ounce cup and two teaspoons per eight-ounce glass of an iced tea. You can also adjust it to best suit the taste you want it to have.
  • Steep it for at least 3-5 minutes to get complete benefit of it. You can also serve it with a slice of lemon or sugar for taste.

So, I recommend you to have Bergamot essential oil in your cabinet because it can be useful for you in the long run. Try it and comment below about your experience with it.
