Essential oil (EO) vapours have been known for their antimicrobial properties since the 4(th) century B.C., however, it was not until the early 1960s that research into the potential of these volatile oils was explored. More recently the use of EOs such as tea tree, bergamot, lavender and eucalyptus in vapour form have been shown to have antimicrobial effects against both bacteria and fungi, with range of methods being developed for dispersal and efficacy testing. To date many applications for EO vapours as antimicrobials have been identified including in the food and clinical arenas.
