Essential oils are made by steaming or cold pressing raw plant material, essential oils are the distilled liquid essence of a plant. From tea tree to ginger and grapefruit to vanilla, you can find most any plant or herb in an aromatic essential oil form.
These concentrated liquids can do more than just make your cleaning products smell fabulous. They can disinfect, purify and even remove stains — all without any toxic chemicals in the mix. Essential oils are naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial.
Another important functional group found in different essential oils is alcohol group (hydroxyl group). Natural alcohols kill bacteria by breaking down their membrane. The most common alcohols found in essential oils are linalool, menthol, geraniol, and santalol. Sandalwood essential oil, for instance, contains 90% of santalol.
Vinegar is an antibacterial agent that kills 99 percent of bacteria. It's also nontoxic, nonpolluting and edible. Acetic acid (a.k.a. white vinegar) is a great disinfectant. It also acts as a deodorizer and cuts grease. You can tackle salmonella, E. coli and other “gram-negative” bacteria with vinegar. Gram-negative bacteria can cause pneumonia, meningitis and bloodstream, wound or surgical site infections. The strong smell of vinegar will dissipate quickly, leaving your hands clean and soft lingering smells of the essential oils.
