We are a Canadian company, that exclusively produces a proprietary “antimicrobial oil” from the leaves of the thuja plicata tree, which are native to British Columbia. The application used is steam processing, which is environmentally friendly. The oil of the thuja plicata, has been used traditionally among aboriginal groups of the Pacific north west for hundreds of years, to treat a variety of upper respiratory symptoms.
Patent approved in 2007, that covers a diffuser design and the method of distributing, thuja plicata oil in vapor form, throughout commercial buildings for control of airborne pathogens.
In 2009 – 2012, Dr. Hudson, UBC Emeritus Professor, conducted scientific valuations and concluded thuja plicata vapor was a safe, green, broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent for decontamination of buildings. In 2015, efficacy tests were conducted by Antimicrobial Test Laboratories USA, who concluded that our proprietary thuja plicata oil inactivated infectious viruses, Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria by 99.9%, within 60 minute period.
