Oregano, Origanum vulgare has potent antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, and anti- 

inflammatory properties.  Found the following about the chemistry of oregano oil from AARM (Assoc. for the advancement of Restorative Medicine):

The oregano extracts of thymol and carvacrol chemistry have shown significant antioxidant and antimicrobial activity in vitro, leading to the destruction or growth inhibition of a broad spectrum of microorganisms such followed by thymol (an isomer of carvacrol), p-cymene, and γ-terpinene. as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus (10,11), Listeria innocua and L. monocytogenes, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Aspergillus niger, Bacillus cereus (12, 13, 14), Bacillus subtilis, Candida albicans, and Eimeria tenella (15,16) 

Tea Tree is a powerful anti-septic and has been used by the Australian Aborigines for skin infections.  Today tea tree essential oil is used as an antiseptic in skin care products, and in soaps and mouthwashes. The oil is effective against bacterial, fungal and viral infections, and is used in products to treat such conditions as athlete’s foot, warts, acne and vaginal infections, and many skin infections. 

Eucalyptus globulus also has a strong anti-bacterial chemistry, as well as anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-fungal activities, and it is anti-inflammatory.
