What is Anti Viral ? Can it give Protection for COVID19 ?

April 30, 2020


What  does Anti Viral mean?   -

It is a substance which inhibits the growth of a Virus


Currently the Mod  is offering  a new layer of protection against COVID-19    as per  Sky News can reveal,   and it is   a  product, called Citriodiol, is known to kill types of coronaviruses.   


Which  the Mod defence laboratory   will test whether a product found to repel  insects can also destroy a strain of coronavirus that causes   covid19


There is a lot of media  about  essential  oils and  can  they or cannot, work by entering   the skin and destroy a virus.        


 Essential oils have been dismissed for many years, they are  classed as  an Alternative Therapy  but if the Mod  are now looking for an answer  with them.      That is Interesting!!


How does a virus  work?  

  • It enters  into the host and binds with a cell in the respiratory tract (nose/throat/lungs)

  • the surface proteins of the virus bind to receptors like a lock and key

  • the virus is then able to enter the cell & infect it

There are certain components of a variety of essential oils that have been shown to disrupt the viral life cycle at different stages.


As a result, it can be helpful to use a blend of different essential oils.


Essential Oils are powerful  and do have many health  warning  so they must be used with caution.


 This is an extract taken from  Tisserand     A researcher called Straehli   did some fascinating tests on essential oils   in 1940 and   he found that all the oils tested appeared in his subjects’ breath following absorption through the skin.

In other words, the essential oils penetrate into the skin, make it into the bloodstream, diffuse all around the body to various organs including the lungs and are then breathed out.

Straehli found that different chemicals and their constituents were breathed out at different time intervals:


This study, and others that have been undertaken since then, show that essential oils certainly do make it into the bloodstream – and much further than that.


There are many  researches will challenge this  but plant extracts and oils have been used for thousands of years  and now the Mod.
