Some time ago we were contacted by a holistic nurse/client in Wisconsin and asked to take part in a research project. Reading she had done indicated that a body wash, containing Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils, if left on the skin for a period of time, could be effective against MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
We tested different strengths and combinations until we found the mixture that was 100% effective in the laboratory. This particular combination killed the MRSA bacteria in a laboratory culture. The results have been repeated and replicated. Oddly enough, we found that no single essential oil completely killed the bacteria. (Although the most effective was a rare Spike Lavender from France, which, of course, we promptly imported!)
We later went on to test a “leave on” version. The same blend, at a different dilution, in our gentle Organic Aloe Vera Gel. It too kills the MRSA bacteria under laboratory conditions.
Human trials are being organized in Wisconsin even as I type. But we are unwilling to wait to release the product that has been tested. (And the nurses want to order it for their personal use!)
Will our MERCY Body Wash and/or Treatment Gel kill the MRSA bacteria if you come in contact with it? We don’t know. And even if we did know, we couldn’t say so, due to various federal laws and regulations.
What we can say is that the soap will clean your skin, and contains proven natural anti-bacterial ingredients, and that the treatment gel will soothe your skin, while also providing proven, natural, all organic anti-bacterial ingredients.
I wish I had known of this research in Autumn 2005 when I was hospitalized for two weeks and spent months recuperating…from MRSA!
