A brief history of ozonated oils

A brief history of ozonated oils

Ozonated olive oil was discovered quite by accident in the early 1900s, when breathing ozone through oil was used to treat tuberculosis.  After many treatments the olive oil turned into a gel and seemed to hold ozone for a long time, making it a great salve used for a variety of ailments.  Famous inventor Nikola Tesla was the first to market it, and as early as 1904 it was being sold in pharmacies all over the country under the name Glycozone.

Ozone therapy and the use of ozone oils was flourishing in the United States in the early to mid 1900s, but like many natural remedies of the time its chemical competitors tried to discredit it.  With the advent of antibiotics and new drug therapies, pharmaceutical salesmen pushed their drugs as the new way to treat diseases.  The FDA became the bully pulpit for drug companies, going so far as to outlaw ozone therapies for use by medical doctors.

Now, however, ozone therapy is making a huge comeback.  In fact, ozone is used in over 20 countries in hospitals and clinics and ozonated oils are being researched around the world.

What can ozonated oil do for you?

Ozonated oil  can last for 10 years if kept refrigerated or around one year at room temperature.  It is known to destroy bacteria, viruses, fungi, some parasites, venoms and poisons through oxidation, and helps stimulate new cell production through oxygenation. Doctors have reported that ozonated oil speeds the postoperative healing process by improving blood flow, reducing inflammation, preventing infection and reducing pain.

Ozonated oil has been used for over 100 years to help treat the following:


Athlete’s Foot

Bacterial Infections

Bed Sores




Cold Sores

Cuts and Wounds




Diaper Rash

Fungal Infections


Insect Bites



Herpes Simplex


Leg Ulcers






Age Spots

Spider Bites


And more…

  • Nikola Tesla received the first patent for an ozone generator in 1896 and he started to market it as early as 1904. In those days there were no laws to protect the inventions and as usual, his discovery was stolen by companies making medications and commercialized the product under the name of Glycozone.
