Aromatogram: Essential oils against infections
In hundreds of studies it has been shown that essential oils inhibit the growth of pathogens.
Essential oils can not only be used singularly, they can also be combined with an antibiotic therapy. If the patient applies a systemic antibiotic and a topically applied essential oil, the infection usually disappears quicker than with the monotherapeutic administration of an antibiotic.
According to the clinical experience to date, aromatherapy or a combination of antibiotic and aromatherapy treatment is particularly suitable for:
- Vaginal infections
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Sinusitis, pharyngitis, etc.
- Skin diseases, e.g. acne
The procedure is rather simple: take a smear from the infection site and send it to the Institute of Microecology. Following incubation and differentiation of the pathogenic agents we employ an aromatogram, which determines the most effective essential oils.
What's an aromatogram?
An aromatogram reveals the essential oils that are effective against an isolated pathogen.
Methodically, the aromatogram resembles an antibiogram: a plate diffusion test. The size of the resulting inhibitory zones indicates the efficacy of the respective essential oil.
After the most effective oils has been identified, a targeted phytotherapy with essential oils against the pathogen is possible.
The pads on the blood-agar contain different essential oils. If there is a diffusion halo around one pad the pathogen cannot grow in, the oil is effective against the pathogen.
