God and Goddess knew that mankind would need spices like Oregano. Everyone knows it is used in Italian cooking, but as a strong essential oil, it also has many physical attributes when used in therapy. The active ingredient 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 are needed. In other words, more is not better so pay attention as the phenol is as strong as prescription drugs.
Keep in mind Oregano oil is strong, only one drop is needed in Italian fare in the place of raw herbs. One drop in 4 ounces of a beverage daily is all you will need to naturally boost your immune function. You can take it more often if you have a current challenge to your system. In addition to being an anti-oxidant, supporters of this oil acclaim to its praises as an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. Additionally, it helps with digestion and respiratory function when taken internally. It does not kill helpful, probiotic bacterium in your gut the way prescription antibiotics can do.
To remedy an abscessed tooth, put two drops on a small cotton ball or swab and gently bite down on it for three minutes; then rinse. If I could easily reach the tooth then I would put one pure drop on the tooth, wait three minutes, then rinse.
You can also put 10 drops into a 16-ounce spray bottle with water to use as a surface cleaner.
In aromatherapy, Oregano essential oil may help with infections in the lungs. Use only one or two drops in a diffuser. Test-tube studies have shown this oil will kill cancer cells. Aromatically, it has an herbaceous quality, sharp, green, and camphoraceous. Topically, for challenges to the skin, Oregano oil must be diluted with a carrier like coconut oil.
As with all essential oils, perform a self-allergy test, especially before aromatherapy.
