Introduction
Recent study results show that essential oils obtained from some plants have a strong bactericidal effect against many pathogenic microorganisms and therefore they may play a supportive role in the prevention and treatment of infections caused by Helicobacter pylori. Infection with Helicobacter pylori is a suspected cause of rosacea, a chronic multi-phase inflammatory disease of the face, manifesting with vascular changes in the form of characteristic erythema. The purpose of this work was to present aromatherapy as a safe method supporting the treatment of rosacea induced by Helicobacter pylori.

Methods
The paper is a narrative review of the world scientific literature.

Results
Essential oils that exert an antimicrobial effect on Helicobacter pylori are presented. They penetrate the cell wall and cell membrane of the microorganisms, disturb the integrity of the structures, and lead to bacterial cell death.

Conclusions
The broad range of effects, rapidity of action, and efficacy of aromatherapy make it an effective weapon against Helicobacter pylori infections.
