1Gary Young Evolution of the Ultimate Antiseptic The Story of Thieves, Triple 0 , and Inner Defense
2Early History of “Thieves” During the 14th Century plage (known as the Black Death) the story was told of a band of thieves who robbed the corpses of plague victims.When captured, the bandits revealed the secret of their immunity from contracting the disease in exchange for leniency.The told of a concoction that included clove and rosemary that afforded them protection from contracting diseases.
3Clinical studies have shown that clove and it’s primary phenol, eugenol, kills: 60 different species of Gram Negative and Postive Bacteria13 different fungi2 different viruses
4Powerful Antifungal Action Clove oil at very small levels (0.06%) totally inhibited toxic mold and aflaxtoxin productionDr. Radwan FaragDifferent types include B1, B2, G1 and G2. B1 is the most widespread.
5Antiviral Effects of Eugenol Eugenol strongly inhibits growth of Herpes Simplex 1 and II in several clinical studiesEugenol significantly delayed the onset of herpetic lesions
6Tiny amounts of cinnamon bark EO decimate E coli in only 2 hours Only 0.025% of cinnamon EO reduced toxic E. Coli 0157:H7 counts from 10,000,000 to 31,000 CFU.
8Showed inhibitory affects against 23 different strains of bacteria. Journal quotesAccording to the International Journal of Food Microbiology, the essential oils of clove, cinnamon bark, and thyme had the most powerful antimicrobial effects of 25 different essential oils testedShowed inhibitory affects against 23 different strains of bacteria.
9Creation of Thieves Thieves essential oil Clove Lemon Cinnamon Eucalyptus radiataRosemaryIn 1997 Sue Chao tested Thieves EO at Weber State University for its potent antimicrobial effects
10When diffused, Thieves EO Blend decimates 3 of the most common pathogenic bacteria Micrococcus leteus Common gram-positive bacteriumPseudonomas aeroginosa Gram negative bacteria found in soil and dust that can cause serious infectionsStaphylococcus aureus Gram-positive opportunistic human pathogen carried by 30% of the population
11Thieves’ killed over 99% of bacteria within 20 minutes 20 minutes of diffusing Thieves EO blendkilled 99.2% of all airborne Micrococcus luteusThe longer the oil was diffused, the greater the reduction in microorganisms
12Evolution from Thieves to Triple O CloveLemonCinnamon BarkEucalytpus radiataRosemaryTriple O – (2001)Clinically testedThieves EO BlendOreganoThyme
14Combination of Phenolics and Aldehydes Cinnamaldehyde (in cinnamon bark EO) is both an aldehyde and a phenolClove contains antiviral and antibacterial phenolics known as phenylpropanoidsThyme and oregano contain simple phenolics (thymol and carvacrol)Thyme – 55% thymolOregano – 65% carvacrol
15Reports show that carvacrol from oregano oil kills spores from Bacillus cereus and Bacillus anthracis (Athrax)Archives Microbiology, v 174, Oct 2000"Oil of Oregano exhibited the greatest antibacterial action against common pathogenic germs such as Staph, E.coli, and Listeria."Journal of Food Protection, v 64, July 2001"Oregano Oil had antibacterial activity against 25 different bacteria."Journal of Applied Microbiology, v 88, Feb 2000
16Penillicin vs Oregano EO Research at Weber State University by Sue Chao found that 12 microliters of oregano had the antibacterial equivalence of 10 units of penicillin.
17Oregano vs. PenicillinHarry Preuss, MD, a professor of physiology and biophysics at Georgetown University found that oregano oil (in particular, the chemical component carvacrol) works as well as antibiotics on staphylococcus.In a test tube assay, oregano oil combined with staph inhibited its growth as effectively as penicillin and other antibiotics.
18Resisting InfectionsIn the second phase of this study, 50% of mice receiving oregano for 30 days survived staph infections compared to none in the control group."Natural oils may turn out to be valuable adjuvants or even replacements for many anti-germicidals under a variety of conditions.“Harry Preuss, MD, professor of physiology and biophysics, Georgetown UniversityScience Daily, Oct 11, 2001

20Citronella Citronella is high in powerfully antifungal aldehydes Columbia University in New York reported in 2006 that citronella has 8 times the antimicrobial action as lemon oil
