Read on for the details of these remarkable studies!
The least respondent of all the cell lines to essential oils,
MCF-7 was mostly annihilated by all four of these oils, with chamomile killing
up to 93 percent of them in the lab. Even more effective was thyme oil, which
resulted in a 97 percent kill rate of MCF-7 breast cancer cells.
“For MCF-7 cell, the cytotoxicities of cinnamon, thyme, chamomile,
and jasmine essential oils was significantly stronger than that of the other
six essential oils,” explains the study. “The fractions of viable cells were
reduced to 5.31%, 3.47%, 6.93% and 4.34%, respectively.”
As far as antibacterial potency, chamomile ranked similarly high
on the list. Though not as powerful as rose, cinnamon, thyme, and lavender essential
oils, which killed the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes, or P. Acnes, the
microorganism responsible for what is commonly known as acne, in just five
minutes, chamomile oil was
still found to be effective.
