Purify ™ Spray - Natures Defense to kill airborne germs and viruses. Antimicrobial, highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious
What is it?
Purify™ Spray is Nature's Defense to kill airborne germs and viruses. Studies conducted in 1997 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah showed the anti-bacterial effectiveness of this blend of essential oils against airborne microorganisms.
blend of essential oils are antimicrobial, antiviral,
antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious and help to protect the body against
such illnesses as flu, colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throat.
How Did Purify™/Thieves Get Its Name?
As legend would have it, during the 15th-century, the black plague was killing citizens of all rank and file in England. The field of medicine stood helpless – they had no cure and no prevention. All people could do was stay as far away from plague victims as they could.
However, a band of thieves ran rampant, handling and robbing plague victims and their graves of all their jewelry and valuables never caught the highly contagious disease themselves. How did they do it? What protected them?
Inevitably, the thieves were caught and instead of facing harsh sentences for their crimes, they revealed the secret to the judge.
The thieves were spice traders and perfumers who often traveled the Silk Road. Their knowledge of essential oils and spices taught them the exact oils to apply onto their bodies to protect themselves from the plague.
How to use: Spray into the air if someone around you is sick, clean off a surface or your hands, or put into an oil diffuser to clean the air especially if someone around you is sick. Has been proven to eliminate mold.
Carry the Purify™ Spray with you while shopping, on a plane, in an hotel, in a classroom or anywhere you might encounter someone who has the flu and is coughing and sneezing uncontrollably.
Ingredients: Distilled Water, Clove Bud Oil (Syzygium aromaticum), Organic Lemon Oil (Citrus limon), Cinnamon Bark Oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Eucalyptus Oil (Eucalyptus radiata), Organic Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis).
2 oz Spray
Science Behind the Formula:
Clove Bud Oil (Syzygium aromaticum) Clove oil has biological activities, such as antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. This essential oil has been reported to inhibit the growth of molds, yeasts and bacteria.
Organic Lemon Oil (Citrus limon) According to a study published in the International
Journal of Food Microbiology, lemon oil may
actually be the most powerful anti-microbial agent of all the essential oils.
Cinnamon Bark Oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) A study conducted by the National Institute of Health shows that cinnamon bark has antioxidant and and antimicrobial properties. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4003790/
Eucalyptus Oil (Eucalyptus radiata) A study completed by the NIH showed that essential oil of the leaves of E. globulus OR EUCALYPTUS has antimicrobial activity against gram negative bacteria (E. coli) as well as gram positive bacteria (S. aureus).
Organic Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis) Several studies have reported that rosemary extracts show biological bioactivities such as antifungal, antioxidant, and antibacterial.
Why these oils?
This blend of essential oils is high
in anti-microbial properties. The oils are highly antiviral, antiseptic,
antibacterial, anti-infectious and help to protect the body against such
illnesses as flu, colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throats,
cuts, and so on. In November of 2005, an important discovery was made:
Mold, even heavy infestations of toxic mold, could be eliminated from
homes and office buildings using a blend of essential oils: Clove, Lemon,
Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary. (See the studies in Dr.
Edward Close's book, Nature's Mold Rx.) He recommends this model diffuser:
Studies conducted in 1997 at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, showed the anti-bacterial effectiveness of this blend of essential oils against airborne microorganisms. One analysis showed a 90 percent reduction in the number of gram positive Micrococcus luteus organisms after diffusing the oil blend for 12 minutes. After diffusing for a total of 20 minutes, there was a 99.3 percent reduction. Another study against the gram negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed a kill rate of 99.96 percent after just 12 minutes of diffusion of this blend of essential oils.
Dr. Edward Close and Jacquelyn Close documented in "over 100 case studies, verified by an independent EPA-approved environmental laboratory, have shown that organically produced concentrated plant extracts, also called essential oils, when diffused in the air, eliminate mold spores in the air and on surfaces in as little as 24 hours."

There was an 82% reduction in Micrococcus luteus bioaerosol, a 96% reduction in Pseudomonas aeruginosa bioaerosol, and a 44% reduction in Staphylococcus aureus bioaerosol following 10 minutes of exposure to the blend of oils that was diffused for a given amount of time. [View abstract]
The average human cough would fill about three-quarters of a two-liter soda bottle with air — air that shoots out of the lungs in a jet several feet long. Coughs also force out thousands of tiny droplets of saliva. About 3,000 droplets are expelled in a single cough, and some of them fly out of the mouth at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.
Sneezing is even worse.
It starts at the back of the throat and produces even more droplets — as many as 40,000 — some of which rocket out at speeds greater than 200 miles per hour. The vast majority of the droplets are less than 100 microns across — the width of a human hair. Many of them are so tiny that they cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Most of the larger, heavier drops fall quickly to the floor under the influence of gravity. The smaller and lighter particles (those that are five microns or less across) are less affected by gravity and can stay airborne almost indefinitely as they are caught up in and dispersed by the room's airflow.
Movements in a room can cause the heavier droplets to become airborne again after they have fallen to the ground or another surface. Making a hospital bed can kick up viruses on the covers. Opening a door can dramatically alter the airflow in the room and pull up viruses on the floor. Even walking through a room can spread droplets in a person's wake.
If a person is sick, the droplets in a single cough may contain as many as two hundred million individual virus particles. The number varies dramatically and changes over the course of an infection as the immune system clears out the virus. Generally, a sick person is most infectious as soon as the first symptoms appear and less infectious as his or her immune system clears the virus.
Airborne and ready to infect
Once airborne, viruses in these tiny droplets can survive for hours. Even if the droplets hit a surface, the viruses can survive and still spread disease if the droplets become airborne later. When a droplet lands on paper, its virus particles can survive for hours. On steel or plastic they can survive for days.
Once they are breathed in, the droplets settle onto cells at the back of the throat, where the virus attempts to enter these cells and begin replicating. This may or may not cause an infection. The body's natural defenses are designed to eliminate infections, and whether someone will fall ill depends on how much virus is breathed in and whether the person's immune system has encountered that virus previously, said Julian Tang, a clinical virologist in Singapore.
When people do get sick, the body tries to deal with the infection by bringing up mucus to help clear it. Some of this mucus is swallowed, carrying the virus down to be destroyed by stomach acid. Some viruses in the throat, though, will be expelled when we cough, and this coughing expels the mucus (and new virus) out of the body, thus beginning the whole process anew.
