CandlesEtcetera Purete Candles - Can They Really Help with Bacteria?...YES they can!
Researchers from the University of Southampton, UK have found that adding essential oils, like Eucalyptus, Orange and Thyme to candles can destroy bugs. The researchers told a conference in Tokyo that adding essential oils to candles could be as effective as scrubbing with disinfectants!!!
Tokoyo, Japan (PRWEB) September 13, 2004 -- Their tests found that some oils can destroy bacteria like Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus aureas on surfaces. Though they have so far only tested against standard laboratory strains of bacteria, the findings are impressive.
Candles can not clean your house for you , but they can help to diminish the effects of bacteria on our lives. Your a lot less susceptible to the bacteria with your soft glowing CandlesEtcetera Purete* candles.
The superbug MRSA is Staphylococcus aureas, which is resistant to a type of penicillin normally used to kill it. The researchers said further tests were needed to see if adding essential oils to candles could fight the superbug.
"We have only tested against standard laboratory strains of bacteria," said Dr Gaunt. "We haven't looked at MRSA."
The researchers believe that the "Oils react with ions in the wick and with oxygen to take on anti-bacterial properties".
They said adding these essential oils to candles could help people to kill bacteria lurking in their homes. "But I wouldn't advise people to stop using other methods to keep their homes clean and candles won't get rid of dirt or grease."
