This method is used from time immemorial, but to explain its effect could only in the twentieth century, when discovered substances such as volatile production. At the present time, opening phytoncids grew into an independent biological doctrine, developed by botanists, chemists, microbiologists and physicians.

All plants, except mushrooms, possess antimicrobial action. Thus, they defend themselves, it is their immunity. And it's all thanks to fitoncid - volatile substances. Detection phytoncids in 20-ies is considered one of the greatest achievements of the twentieth century. In addition, volatile increases the body's immunity.
