The first challenge – is that no one essential oil kills all bacteria! You have to blend the abilities of several oils that kill different forms of bacteria. Then you can end up with a synergy that will kill all forms of bacteria.
The second challenge – is that care has to be taken in the essential oil strength you use. Some oils, such as cinnamon bark, have to be used at very low dilutions. Some can be used at stronger concentrations.
The Third challenge – is to find a skin-friendly “carrier” for the essential oils. Essential oils are usually blended in carrier oils like jojoba, almond, sunflower, and the like, oils. The problem is that even a “dry” carrier oil stays oily on your skin for a long time. We wanted a lotion that would enrich your skin as it heals, but also absorb and dry in a reasonable time.
We have spent considerable time in extensive experimentation and formulation. The result is that we have been able to answer all three challenges.
First: we have been able to combine the bacteria fighting abilities of 14 different essential oils that covers the entire realm of bacterial defense.
Second: we have found a synergy in the chemical composition of the different essential oils that produces the ultimate results. Because of their slightly different chemical composition, we are able to make our blend stronger than other essential oil blends!
Third: we have also been able to emulsify this essential oil blend, along with monolaurin and phospholipids into a 90% organic nourishing skin-friendly lotion that doesn’t stay oily like carrier oils. This is why we feel we can call our MRSA skin infection the “Ultimate”.
