Antimicrobial Activity of Basil, Oregano, and Thyme Essential Oils.

Sakkas H1, Papadopoulou C1.



For centuries, plants have been used for a wide variety of purposes, from treating infectious diseases to food preservation and perfume production. Presently, the increasing resistance of microorganisms to currently used antimicrobials in combination with the appearance of emerging diseases requires the urgent development of new, more effective drugs. Plants, due to the large biological and structural diversity of their components, constitute a unique and renewable source for the discovery of new antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic compounds. In the present paper, the history, composition, and antimicrobial activities of the basil, oregano, and thyme essential oils are reviewed.

Preface of “Healing with Essential Oils” by Jodi Sternoff Cohen, NTP, First Edition Juni 2017


“I believe that healing occurs on more than just the physical level. For individuals who are chronically ill, it is important to tap into what I call the five levels of healing that include:


  • Physical
  • Energetic
  • Mental
  • Intuitive
  • Spiritual


Essential oils can be used to open the system to all five levels of healing. …


On a physical level, essential oils are higly anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-viral and can be used to help modulate immune reactions and calm the nervous system. …


Essential oils can also work on the energy body, balancing the electric currents of the body and nervous system …, acupuncture meridians, and the biophoton field…


Essential Oils are particularly well suited to support healing of the mental body, where your life experiences are recorded as thoughts, beliefs, emotions and attitudes.”

Essential oil with excellent fluidity.


Available in 2ml or 5ml in the glass dropper bottle with drip tray and child-proof tamper-evident seal.


With it a cotton bag filled with natural, only washed with water sheep’s wool from certified organic animal husbandry (healing wool).


Daily 1 drop in the opened cotton bag on the medicinal wool, then close the bag. Keep the bag close to you. The natural volatility of the oil causes the rest. Please do not use fragrance lamps, etc.

The Essence of Nature

Essential oils in the medical literature

The most direct route to the brain is via the olfactory nerve and dendrites in the nasal mucosa.


Special attention should be paid to the sense of smell. 1% of our genes are responsible for the smell. 350 different olfactory receptors are known.


Vanille reminds us of breast milk and immediately increases oxytocin release. Subjects rate faces on photos as 15% more friendly under the influence of unintentionally perceptible vanilla odor in the room.


Thus, the smell of the smell directly changes the chemical conditions in our brain.


In 2013, a study confirmed the effect of inhaling essential oils on the olfactory nerve to the brain:


Curr Drug Targets. 2013 Jul;14(8):872-9.

Aromatherapy and the central nerve system (CNS): therapeutic mechanism and its associated genes.

Lv XN, Liu ZJ, Zhang HJ, Tzeng CM.

Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine) thereby further regulating mood. However, little research has been done on the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects, thus their mechanism of action remains ambiguous.

In the current study, the effectiveness of aromatherapy for alleviating psychiatric disorders was examined using data collected from previously published studies and our unpublished data.

Apossible signaling pathway from olfactory system to the central nerve systemand the associated key molecular elements of aromatherapy are also proposed.


Here a possible signal path via the olfactory system directly to the central nervous system is discussed. A change in psychiatric symptoms via the inhalation of essential oils is observed, although the mechanism of these symptoms is still largely unknown.


With the PANDAS or PANS syndrome (rapidly onset systemic neurological disease with physical and psychiatric symptoms as a result of immune reactions to streptococci or cases of PANS also on other germs) we have a possible explanation of these symptoms – and with the essential oils a way to positively influence it.


The effect of the outflow of essential lavender oil through the nose or mouth to various areas of the brain has already been very well by MRI documented:

Lavender and the Nervous System

Peir Hossein Koulivand, 1 Maryam Khaleghi Ghadiri, 2 and Ali Gorji

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), significant activation in major olfactory brain structures, including the primary olfactory cortex, entorhinal cortex, hippocampus and parahippocampal cortex, thalamus, hypothalamus, orbitofrontal cortex, and insular cortex and its extension into the inferior lateral frontal region was reported in nineteen healthy participants after application of 10% lavender diluted in dipropylene glycol [64]. Cortical perfusion increment after sensorial stimulation with lavender was evaluated by single photon emission computed tomography in ten healthy adults. A significant activation was observed in gyrus rectus, orbitofrontal cortex, and superior temporal cortical areas. A slight perfusion increase also existed in middle temporal and parieto-occipital regions [65]. Lavender odor was delivered via the orthonasal (odor perceived through the nose) and retronasal (odor perceived through the mouth) routes and brain response was measured with fMRI in 20 subjects. In addition to the activation at the base of the central sulcus by lavender, retronasal stimulation with odor resulted in a significant peak in the ventral insula compare to orthonasal application. In contrast, orthonasal application yielded a peak in the right caudate nucleus that approached significance in comparison to retronasal way [66].


Essential oils have neuroprotective properties, increase cognitive ability and delay aging processes:

Neuroprotective and Anti-Aging Potentials of Essential Oils from Aromatic and Medicinal Plants

Muhammad Ayaz, Abdul Sadiq, Muhammad Junaid, Farhat Ullah, Fazal Subhan, and Jawad Ahmed

In conclusion, EOs were effective on several pathological targets and have improved cognitive performance in animal models and human subjects. Thus, EOs can be developed as multi-potent agents against neurological disorders with better efficacy, safety and cost effectiveness.

Antimicrobial Properties of Plant Essential Oils against Human Pathogens and Their Mode of Action: An Updated Review

Mallappa Kumara Swamy, 1 , 2 , * Mohd Sayeed Akhtar, 3 , * and Uma Rani Sinniah 1 , *


We believe that the term “antimicrobial” effect when using complete aspects of herbs is not comparable to the “antimicrobial” effect of chemical drugs.


For herbs, v.a. Essence of herbs in the form of essential oils, it is not a pure killing of germs, but an intelligent rearrangement of the composition of microbiome – to increase the communication of the microbes among themselves, but also the microbes with our immune system. Thus, symbiosis becomes possible again.


Unfortunately, many studies reduce the effectiveness of essential oils on individual active components, which indeed have killing effects when isolated in the laboratory on single microbes are released.


Nevertheless, we are very grateful for these studies and would like to quote them, as they already give us a good idea of ​​the specific connection of oils to microbes.


Many studies coincide with the experiences of our practice and the results of ART testing.


In the following study the effect of essential oils on the biofilm has been confirmed:

Selected Antimicrobial Essential Oils Eradicate Pseudomonas spp. and Staphylococcus aureus Biofilms

Afterdetermining that essential oils are effective against biofilms, we tested individual components of the essential oils for antimicrobial efficacy. We assessed the molecules cinnamaldehyde, eugenol, and linalool (from cassia, clove, and lavender oils, respectively)
