Coronavirus COVID19 - How to use virucidal aromatherapy essential oils to stop infections.
With coronavirus spreading at a rapid rate we thought we could offer some help by developing an aromatherapy spray that would be helpful in the fight against the epidemic. Antibiotics do not work against coronavirus or any viruses. They only work against bacterial infections. There is currently no vaccine.
The novel coronavirus detected in China is genetically closely related to the SARS-CoV-1 virus. SARS emerged at the end of 2002 in China, and it caused more than 8 000 cases in 33 countries over a period of eight months. Around one in ten of the people who developed SARS died.

As you can see from the sneeze above - thousands of droplets are discharged into the air from an infected person. This is why we have developed the spray so as to kill the virus in 10 minutes living in those airborne droplets. This is our idea based on medical research that has shown in clinical trials the essential oils killing the virus and inhibiting its life cycle.
Aromatherapy essential oils have been shown in a number of clinical studies to be strong in the fight against bacteria and in fact when sprayed in the air kill airborne flu virus types within 10 minutes. You may also be interested to know they successfully combat MRSA which at present has no known antibiotic treatment as it has grown resistant to them all.
Just to let you know I am speaking and writing with an honours degree in Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering. In other words I could whip you up a vaccine with the right kit. I ain’t joking. I know my stuff.I was educated by the best many of whom went to Cambridge and Oxford.
Lots of misinformation is being spread about the use of aromatherapy in the fight against Covid19 by health journalists and bloggers at the moment who are basically copying and pasting the news feed. Saying that aromatherapy cannot play a role at the moment with this virus is – fake news. THEY ABSOLUTELY CAN HELP and scientific studies have proven this with other influenza type viruses. Plus years of safe and effective use.
Jackwood et al in 2010 studied essential oils with regards SARS and in the paper he and his colleagues wrote about the study they said that, ‘The data are important because these types of compounds might also be useful to control other coronaviruses like the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) as well as other enveloped viruses like avian influenza virus and Newcastle disease virus.’ He must have known that something was
coming down the line possibly.
Loizzo et al found when they studied the use of essential oils with SARS that ,’ Our results demonstrated how L. nobilisberries oil exhibited an IC50 value of 120mg/ml against SARS-CoV with a selectivity index (SI;TC50/IC50) of 4.2.’
Here are some of the many of the research results with aromatherapy essential oils to treat a number of conditions. Only ignorant incompetent scientists, medics and technologists would ignore the data.
Of course MamaPharma has a big interest (billions $$) in suppressing information about the efficacy of medicinal plants. They also cannot patent them.
Just consider for a moment the medicine for the SARS flu which is called Tamiflu?
Tamiflu is made from a chemical compound from Star Anise called shikimic acid. No star anise no tamiflu so we need to be more understanding about the power of medicinal plants.
Being ignorant about the power of aromatherapy essential oils at the moment could be very detrimental during this COVID19 outbreak.
So with this in mind we have created our Aromatherapy Flu ROOM Spray based on scientific research where certain essentials oils were proven to be potent antivirals particularly flu, HSV and SARS antivirals.
Of course this is not intended to treat a person or a disease but rather work as prevention.
The essential oils are aimed at the virus in the droplets in the air which is how Covid19 is rapidly spreading. So if it is killed in the air from our spray within 10 minutes then it could protect people from catching it.
Even though we don't have studies with Covid19 we have many studies with SARS which is half of the current virus that is currently causing havoc and other viruses.
We have known about the virucidal effects of aromatherapy essential oils for quite some time. So why don't we use them in our fight against the current virus Covid19?
The product can be sprayed in the air or 10ml of it can be put into a diffuser as shown.

This product of ours should now be now used in hospitals, care homes for the elderly, pharmacies, healthstores, offices and hotel receptions everywhere in Ireland right now. Even gyms especially steam rooms and saunas.
As they say prevention is better than cure.
We would even argue it should be diffused in all hospital corridors and departments.
So how does it work? Well here is the peer reviewed evidence based research and for those of you who have no science background, it’s the only research worth talking about, or to be used to make a case for why we are doing what we are.
Well, Wu et al in 2010 saw with essential oils of Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf,
and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils. that ,’ Influenza virus infectivity was suppressed by essential oil treatment in a dose-dependent manner; the number of nascent viral particles released from MDCK cells was reduced by 90% and by 40% when virus was treated with 1:4,000 and 1:6,000 dilutions of the oil, respectively. Oil treatment of the virus also decreased direct infection of the cells as the number of infected MDCK cells decreased by 90% and 45%
when virus was treated with 1:2,000 and 1:3,000 dilutions of the oil, respectively.’
Vimalanathan et al in The University of British Columbia in 2014 saw that, ‘we evaluated several EOs and some of their major constituents for their possible anti-influenza virus properties in both liquid and vapor phases. In vapor phase Citrus bergamia, Eucalyptus globulus,and the isolated compounds citronellol and eugenol were very active against influenza virus following exposures of only 10 minutes. Pelargonium graveolens, Cinnamomumzeylanicum, Cymbopogonflexuosuswere also very active with 30 minutes exposure.’
These are just two examples but there are many more. I just wanted to give you a flavour of the research that is out there already validating the effects of the essential oils that we have used in the product.
the viral inactivation in the ambient air reached 40% with following decrease of the number of live virions over the remaining 45 min
of the experiment. The final inactivation of viral particles was around 95% over the entire experimental time.’
They only used tea tree and also eucalyptus.
In the Mindful Beauty Aromatherapy Flu Room Spray we have used essential oils of :
This synergistic formula we understand from the research above and elsewhere could very well affect Covid19 virus in the same way due to the results they had had on similar viruses.
People who have a real scientific education will also connect the dots here and in a time when there are very few weapons against this virus apart from quarantine the really intelligent ones will look at the evidence and say - yes, lets use this and fast. It certainly won't harm and could also help in the fight against the virus becoming resistant!
Aromatherapy essential oils have also been shown to attack the virus at a number of stages of its life cycle which make it even more relevant. As you can see here from the following image from Samji 2008 essential oils can also interfere with the life cycle of the disease. 1
This information above is very important whilst MamaPharma is developing a vaccine which is going to take time. Or a drug like Tamiflu.
The smell of the spray leaves a very clean smell, is not overpowering, is natural and energising. Only natural extracts are used.
