Please follow appropriate safety warnings. Many effective oils are less safe for use on the skin and would do better in a nebulizing diffuser. Also, please remember that all essential oils have some antibacterial/antimicrobial effect, so oils may be chosen for other reasons and still be effective.

As more and more infectious conditions become resistant to various antibiotics, essential oils seem to retain their effectiveness. This may be due to the fact that most antibiotics, with a few exceptions, are single component (one substance) and essential oils contain at least dozens (and oftentimes hundreds) of components. It is easier for microbes to overcome a single-substance antibiotic than a substance containing hundreds of components.
