Oregano

The Oil of Humility & Non-Attachment

I like to call this oil Nature’s Natural Antibiotic – do not take for more than 7-10 days at a time.

Known as a popular cooking spice, Oregano also acts as a powerful cleansing agent, and offers powerful antioxidants*—extending its uses far beyond the kitchen.

Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional practices. The primary chemical components of Oregano is carvacrol, a phenol that possesses antioxidant properties when ingested. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with a carrier oil when applied to the skin. One drop taken internally each day can help maintain healthy immune function; Oregano can be taken more frequently as needed to further support the immune system.* In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano also supports healthy digestion and respiratory function when taken internally.* Oregano’s aroma acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends.

Top uses for Oregano include:

  • An Immune System Boost. Take 1-2 drops in a Veggie Capsule, with olive oil, for periodic immune support.
  • Keep Calm And Oregano On. Concerned about the sanitary conditions of a public place you or the kids have just walked on with bare feet? Your feet absorb more than you think. Follow up by applying one drop of Oregano and Thyme, diluted with 6-7 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil. Happy feet.
  • Savor The Flavor. Put a drop of Oregano essential oil in your spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, on a roast, or any other entrée for delicious flavor. Because Oregano is so strong, you may want to put the drop first on a spoon and then use a toothpick to slowly add oil to the recipe.
  • The Best Defense Is A Good Offense. To help keep your home clean, mix 3 drops of Oregano with water in a spray bottle and spray it in corners of the shower, sink and other damp and darkened areas.
  • Little Italy At Home. Put a drop of Oregano and a drop of Basil in your veggie dip! Or, mix them both with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a savory bread dip!
  • Bring On Sandal Season! Apply one drop of Oregano to 6 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil to soften cuticles and rough spots that many be encroaching on your toenail real estate. Oregano keeps impurities out!
  • Digestive Dilemmas Abated. Oregano helps create a peaceful environment that is unfriendly to ‘the unmentionables’ that tax our digestive systems.
  • It’s About Natural Effectiveness. Essential oils quickly go to work in your system. This year, when a change of seasons may have you down, make your own wellness blend by combining 3 drops Oregano, 5 drops Protective Blend, 5 drops Melaleuca and 5 drops Lemon into a Veggie Capsule. By putting the properties of these oils to work, you will feel better naturally!
  • Warming Wonder. Dilute just 1 drop in several drops of fractionated coconut oil and massage quickly into hands and feet to help warm the body.
  • Chase Away Whatever Is Blocking Your Lower Registers. When it comes to effortless breathing, having oregano in your system (taken with a Veggie Capsule) has the ability to clear respiratory gunk.
  • Comfortable Exit Ramps. When your body’s waste liquid elimination systems are unhappy, it’s uncomfortable. Cranberry juice is great, but Oregano in your system can work to clear this out, clean it up and help you be well.
  • Target The Source of Unsightly Skin Woes. Anyone’s skin can have imperfections, bumps or feel irritated. The same properties that make oregano great for internal use are also effective as a topical ointment. Use sparingly! Oregano is potent. Dilute 1 drop to 4 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil.
  • Tea Time Boost. On a cold winter day, Oregano added to an earthy, hot tea can do wonders to the body and soul!
  • Foodborne Problems Beware. Oregano has properties that can counteract the effects of improper food handling practices, preparation or food storage. Combined with regular hand washing, Oregano has been known to be effective in contributing to the healthiness of foods.
  • Less Is More. In nearly all applications, more Oregano is not the answer. Oregano is one of the most potent essential oils—one drop is usually all you need. When used improperly, be sure to have Fractionated Coconut Oil on hand to dilute its potency if needed.
