In this episode of Everybody Nose, host Noelle Katai tells you how the use of essential oils could keep germs under control at your workplace. These essential oils are beneficial in killing cold and flu viruses and can also kill certain kinds of bacteria. Read on to know which oils are best.

1. Eucalyptus
A potent stress reliever, eucalyptus oil is also an excellent sterilizer. Add a few drops of this essential oil to a vaporizer to prevent infections such as sinusitis and bronchitis. You can also blend it with other oils such as spike lavender to relieve pain, fight germs, calm the nerves and clear chest congestion.

2. Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica)
This essential oil has antiseptic, antimicrobial and antiviral qualities that are useful in disinfecting the air. Its expectorant and immunity-boosting properties help people stricken with the flu get better faster.

3. Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Tea tree oil has antimicrobial properties. It’s also an effective antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial herb, which makes it effective in curtailing some bacterial infections such as bronchitis, whooping cough and sinusitis. If the smell turns you off, blend it with a ilttle orange, lemon, or lavender essential oil.
