A sound body of knowledge about verifiable effects of essential oils was compiled before cellular and evolutionary biology revealed the new dimensions of essential oil knowledge.
The antibacterial activity of essential oils has continuously been researched since the 1800's. Their efficacy against many bacterial pathogens has been demonstrated in countless in vitro experiments. These studies suggest that essential oils either inhibit bacterial growth or kill the bacteria outright.
This has been demonstrated in vitro, but no mechanisms have been derived from those experiments. It was shown in the 1990s that the sterol insensitive key enzyme HMG CoA reductase in fungi can be inhibited by essential oils
While the cellular and biochemical mechanisms are not clearly understood, sesquiterpene hydrocarbons have a capacity to dissipate free radicals, the agents of inflammation.
