Essential oils and Listeriosis

RESEARCH: Essential oils vs. Listeria monocytogenes

This study screened essential oils against 20 different strains of Listeria, a pathogen that is often foodborne and can be fatal. The essential oils were tested against the Listeria strains in vitro (in dishes, not people), and several essential oils were found to be effective against ALL 20 strains of Listeria, including:
-Cinnamon leaf
-Clove bud
