As so many essential oils have antimicrobial properties, I am suggesting here the 10 essential oils that would be most useful in protecting us against a range of microbes. All these are readily available and can multitask- having more than one defensive property.

essential oils
  • Eucalyptus radiata (Eucalyptus radiata)
  • Ho wood (Cinnamomum camphora ct. linalool)
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium)
  • May chang (Litsea cubeba)
  • Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia)
  • Oregano (Origanum vulgare)
  • Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii)
  • Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica)
  • Thyme linalol (Thymus vulgaris ct. linalool)

Other useful additions to the Self-Defense Kit would be clove bud (Syzygium aromaticum), fragonia (Agonis fragrans), and rosalina (Melaleuca ericifolia).
