Research on the Power of Essential Oils:

Many universities and research institutes in various countries have conducted research on the health promoting benefits of pure (therapeutic grade) essential oils. Among the important results are those relating to the powerful antimicrobial and antibacterial properties contained in many essential oils.

There is a well-known formula that combines Clove bud (Eugenia caryophyllus), Lemon (Citrus limonum (per)), Cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus globulus L.), Rosemary verbenone (Rosmarinus officinalis Ct. verbenone).

This blend of essential oils known by herbalists as “Thieves” is based on an ancient herbal formulation, originating in Europe. VEDAROMA calls its blend based on this formula ‘Panch Pandava’.

There are numerous published research studies on the benefits of each individual essential oil in this special blend, and in 1997, research conducted at Weber State University in Utah, USA, verified the very effective anti- bacterial, antiviral activity of the above blend of essential oils against airborne micro-organisms. The finding states: Diffusion of the oil blend, Thieves, can significantly reduce the number of aerosol-borne bacteria and may have application in treating air for enclosed environments and preventing transmission of aerosol-borne bacterial pathogens. Journal of Essential Oil Research [J. Essent. Oil Res.]. Vol. 10, no. 5, pp. 517-523. Sep-Oct 1998.9

One analysis showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing this powerful blend for 12 minutes. After diffusing for 20 minutes, there was a 99.3 percent reduction.

Another study against the gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.96 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion of this blend of essential oils. These oils are highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infective and can help to protect the body against flu, colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throats, cuts, and so on.

Research on Clove bud (Eugenia caryophyllus) essential oil found that it has the power to destroy typhoid bacillus within minutes. In the following study it was found that Eugenol (an active compound in Clove bud essential oil) inactivated Salmonella typhi within 60 min exposure. Eugenol (an essential oil of Clove) acts as an antibacterial agent against Salmonella typhi by disrupting the cellular membrane: Article in Journal of Ethnopharmacology Devi KP, Nisha SA, Sakthivel R, Pandian SK. 2010 6 July;130(1):107-15 · May 2010

Cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), Clove bud, Lemongrass, Citronella, Thyme, Oregano, and Tea Tree essential oils are among the most effective at killing MRSA and other strains of so called ‘Super Bugs’ resistant to antibiotics.

Microbiologists at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) in the UK, worked with industry to create a vaporiser which sprays essential oils into the air to kill harmful micro- organisms. A nine-month trial of the system at Wythenshawe Hospital, an acute teaching hospital, documented very successful results with airborne bacteria, including MRSA (a type of bacteria resistant to several antibiotics), reduced by 90% and infections on the ward plummeting.

This research team used a blend of the essential oils of Patchouli, Tea Tree, Geranium, and Lavender. Vapour– phase activities of essential oils against antibiotic sensitive and resistant bacteria including MRSA. A.L. Doran W.E. Morden K. Dunn V. Edwards-Jones. First published: 09 March 2009

Essential oils have been shown to have the highest ORAC scores

Many other research studies have looked into the power of essential oils to fight free radicals — ORAC — Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity. Essential oils are most effective.

The oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which are produced during normal metabolism and cell function, as well as from stress and pollutants in our air, water, and food, is implicated in everything from ageing and wrinkling of skin to DNA damage, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Antioxidants offer powerful, effective protection for our body and cells against their oxidative stress, by offsetting the damaging effects of free radicals.

USDA researchers at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts, have developed a laboratory test to measure the ORAC of different foods and natural substances. Known as the ORAC scale, this is one of the most sensitive and reliable methods for measuring antioxidant capacity. The first test of its kind, the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale measures both the time and degree of free-radical inhibition.

Medical doctors start to recognise in certain essential oils natural substances that are powerful antibiotics.

At the 69th annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (February 2002), representing 25,500 orthopaedic surgeons from around the world, it was stated that Oregano essential oil is the ultimate antibiotic. Various research studies document its effectiveness, one of which concludes: The investigation suggests potentials of Oregano oil as an alternative to antibiotics for the treatment of wound-associated infections regardless of antibiotic susceptibility. Bactericidal Property of Oregano Oil Against Multidrug-Resistant Clinical Isolates:Min Lu,1 Tianhong Dai,1,* Clinton K. Murray,2 and Mei X. Wu1,*

New antibiotics against virulent germs / bacteria are urgently needed. In the past year doctors and clinics used too many so called reserve antibiotics. These reserve antibiotics are only administered when others are no longer effective, because reserve antibiotics (Fluorquinolones) have serious side effects.

The researchinstitute connected to the German health insurance company, AOK, found that for an estimated 3.3 million patients treated with antibiotics containing fluoroquinolones, as part of 3.5 million therapies in Germany in 2018, possibly more than 40,000 patients were affected by side effects such as damage to the nervous system, the aorta or a torn tendon and many fatally affected.

The plant kingdom, over millions / billions of years, has itself the innate intelligence, sophistication, and power to ward off all forms of virus, bacilli, bacteria, fungi, predators, etc.

This is what makes essential oils so powerful and effective.

Pandava — the five pious Kshatriya brothers — Yudhistira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula, and Sahadeva — devotees of Sri a Krishna, inherited the leadership of the world upon their victory over the Kurus (opposing forces) in the battle of Kurukshetra, as documented in the great epic, the Mahabharata. This formula has been given the name ‘Panbch Pandava’, because the essential oils of each of the five plants that combine in this well known recipe have proven their power to increase immunity due to their antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti- infective properties.

In the Plant Kingdom, these five have demonstrated their innate intelligence, sophistication, and power — gaining victory by overcoming the multiple virulent bacteria, the micro-organisms challenging balance in the fine fields of Nature’s functioning.

* In the Vedic Tradition Sri Krishna is upheld as one of the ten incarnations of Vishnu, embodiments of Total Knowledge motivated by total Natural Law— Cosmic Creative Intelligence—upholding the evolution of life while maintaining balance and order in the universe. The Vedic Texts highlight the intimate relationship between individual life and Cosmic Life: ‘Yatha Pinde Tatha Brahmande’.

As is the Atom, so is the Universe; as is the body of the individual, so is the Cosmic Body. Refer to the publication: Human Physiology: Expression of the Veda and Vedic Literature. Modern science and ancient Vedic Science discover the fabrics of immortality in the human physiology, rendering human life as a field of all possibilities.
