Antiviral Essential Oils

It has not been proven, scientifically, that any essential oil has specific antiviral effects. However, anecdotal evidence indicates that the following essential oils may have some antiviral effects. Please follow appropriate safety warnings; many of the most effective oils are truly not safe for use on the skin and would do better in a nebulizing diffuser.

As with any information presented on this page, please use all proper precautions in using these powerful aromatic essences, and consult a medical practitioner when in doubt. We are in no way responsible for misuse of the information presented herein.

In our experience and opinion, the most powerful antiviral oils are Ravensara Aromatica and Ravintsara. For more information on the similarities and differences between the two, and suggested uses, please see our page comparing both.
