What is claimed is:

1. A method to prevent infection of the human respiratory system by Staphylococcus aureus for the prevention of staphylococcal pneumonia in an enclosed public area having one or more human beings within said enclosed area comprising the following steps:
(a) within a period of time of 30 minutes before entering said public area, inhaling an effective amount of the concentrated vapors from eucalyptus oil; and
(b) after entering said public area, periodically inhaling the concentrated vapors from eucalyptus oil, whereby the period of time between successive inhalations exceeds 30 minutes, and whereby the period of time between successive inhalations is less than 2 hours; and
(c) inhaling an effective amount of the concentrated vapors from tea tree oil at least one time per day.
 
2. A method to reduce the risks of infection of the human respiratory system by Staphylococcus aureus in an enclosed public area having one or more human beings within said enclosed area comprising the following steps:
(a) within a period of time of 30 minutes before entering said public area, inhaling an effective amount of the concentrated vapors from eucalyptus oil; and
(b) after entering said public area, periodically inhaling the concentrated vapors from eucalyptus oil, whereby the period of time between successive inhalations exceeds 30 minutes, and whereby the period of time between successive inhalations is less than 2 hours; and
(c) inhaling an effective amount of the concentrated vapors from tea tree oil at least one time per day.
 
3. A method to reduce the risks of infection of the human respiratory system by Staphylococcus aureus in an enclosed public area having one or more human beings within said enclosed area comprising the following steps:
(a) within a period of time of 30 minutes before entering said public area, inhaling the concentrated vapors from a mixture comprising 50% of eucalyptus oil and 50% tea tree oil; and
(b) after entering said public area, periodically inhaling the concentrated vapors from said mixture, whereby the period of time between successive inhalations exceed 30 minutes, and
whereby the period of time between successive inhalations is less than 2 hours.
 
4. A method to reduce the risks of infection of the human respiratory system by Staphylococcus aureus in an enclosed public area having one or more human beings within said enclosed area comprising the following steps:
(a) within a period of time of 30 minutes before entering said public area, inhaling from a hand-held atomizer apparatus the concentrated vapors from a mixture of 50% comprising eucalyptus oil and 50% tea tree oil; and
(b) after entering said public area, periodically inhaling from said hand-held atomizer apparatus said concentrated vapors from said mixture, whereby the period of time between successive inhalations exceeds 30 minutes, and whereby the period of time between successive inhalations is less than 2 hours; and
whereby said concentrated vapors are generated within said hand-held atomizer apparatus; and
whereby said concentrated vapors are inhaled through at least one orifice attached to said hand-held atomizer apparatus.
 
5. A method to reduce the risks of infection of the human respiratory system by Staphylococcus aureus in an enclosed public area having one or more human beings within said enclosed area comprising the following steps:
(a) within a period of time of 30 minutes before entering said public area, inhaling the concentrated vapors from a mixture comprising 50% of eucalyptus oil and 50% tea tree oil, whereby said concentrated vapors are generated within a hand-held atomizer apparatus; and whereby said concentrated vapors are inhaled through at least one orifice attached to said handheld atomizer apparatus; and
(b) after entering said public area, periodically inhaling the concentrated vapors from said mixture in said hand-held atomizer apparatus, whereby the period of time between successive inhalations exceeds 30 minutes, and whereby the period of time between successive inhalations is less than 2 hours.
