Well, after all the requests for it, I have made what you asked for.
And yes, it's in my purse at all time right now.
This very strong blend of essential oils in a really light base of castor oil and mineral water can be used as many times a day as you need.
No, I cannot vouch for how antibacterial or antimicrobial it is, but I did do my research on which essential oils have been lab tested to kill viruses and I put them all in this sanitizer.
This is a 2 oz bottle and I really wish I had made them 1 oz after seeing how a little goes a long way. But this is the size I've got to offer and I'm sorry it's so pricey. I will try to make more and bottle some 1 oz this week so I don't have to charge this much for it. But the high essential oil content in this is what drives the price up.
Melissa Leaf (Lemon Balm)
Here are some of the studies I read while formulating this for my family and friends.
"... eucalyptus EO and its compounds 1,8 cineole and β‐caryophyllene exhibit an anti‐HSV1 activity by directly inactivating free‐virus particles and might interfere with virion envelope structures required for entry into host cells (Astani, Reichling, & Schnitzler, 2011; Astani et al., 2010).
In a previous published study performed with a proprietary blend of rosemary, orange, clove, cinnamon, and eucalyptus EOs (On guard Wild™) efficacy was shown against H1N1, but was not tested against bacteria (Wu et al., 2010). In our study, AB1 was proven to be effective against both viruses and bacteria in particular, H1N1 virus, S. aureus and S. pneumoniae, two bacteria responsible for postinfluenza pneumonia (Chung & Huh, 2015). "
Many aromatic compounds show anti-influenza action earlier in the infection process (Figure 2A-C). Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) essential oil has been used extensively to prevent HSV infection. Likewise, IAV pretreated with lemon balm essential oil was unable to attach to host cell surface cell receptors in vitro (Pourghanburi et al 2016).
Tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) essential oil inhibits influenza during the early stages by preventing intracellular processing of the viral particle. When introduced into cell culture media, tea tree oil prevented viral uncoating by interfering with the acidification of the endosomes and membrane fusion (Figure 2C, D) (Garozzo et al 2009, Garozzo et al 2011, Garozzo et al 2013, Li et al 2013). The ability to prevent endosome acidification was ascribed to the tea tree oil constituents terpinen-4-ol, α-terpineol and terpinolene (Garozzo et al 2009, Garozzo et al 2011). These were tested against additional viruses, but their action may be IAV-specific. Tea tree oil, when actively diffused with a nebulizer for two seconds, cleared nearly all airborne IAV at 10 minutes, and showed zero virus at 15 minutes post nebulizer treatment (Usachev et al 2013). Blue mallee (Eucalyptus polybractea) oil showed zero virus at 15 minutes following a 15 second period of active diffusion with a nebulizer (Table 3) (Usachev et al 2013).
In an in vitro study examining H1N1, a number of essential oils and chemical constituents showed the ability to inhibit HA activity (Figure 2D). Cinnamon leaf (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), bergamot (Citrus bergamia), lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus), and thyme (Thymus vulgaris) oils, when applied to the culture media, showed significant HA inhibition. Eugenol, a major constituent of clove bud (Syzygium aromaticum) and cinnamon leaf oils (Tisserand and Young 2014), was also an effective HA inhibitor (Vimalanathan and Hudson 2014). Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) oils also inhibited HA, but only when used at high concentrations. When passively diffused for 10 minutes, bergamot and blue gum oils showed significant reduction in viral growth. When passively diffused for 30 minutes, cinnamon leaf and geranium oils showed a reduction in viral growth (Vimalanathan and Hudson 2014). However, these studies involved diffusing in small spaces (a small tube, and a closed chamber), and so room diffusion in a home may not achieve comparable results (Usachev et al 2013, Vimalanathan and Hudson 2014).
