Oregano essential oil is a must have for your medicine cabinet. Yes, I just said oregano, and I’m not just talking about spaghetti because I do put oregano essential oil in my spaghetti sauce. Oregano, Origanum Vulgare, is a steam distilled oil known for its antiviral and antifungal properties. Please make sure your essential oil can be ingested before taking it internally. Always check the label of your essential oil for any warnings by the manufacturer of the oil. Oregano does need to be diluted with a carrier oil like coconut oil before being applied to your skin. It is a hot oil and has been known to cause skin irritations if applied neat, or by itself. Oregano is steam distilled essential oil, and it packs quite a punch so smaller doses are recommended.
Some Common Uses for Oregano
- Combat viruses by putting oregano essential oil into a capsule and take it internally.
- Fight warts, callouses and canker sores by placing one drop of oregano essential oil and 2 drops of frankincense essential oil directly onto the spot where the problem is. Dilute the oregano with a carrier oil like coconut oil before you put it directly onto your skin. It is a hot oil and needs to be diluted first.
- Fight intestinal worms and parasites by taking internally in a capsule. This is great while traveling in locations that might lack clean water or might have well water.
- For urinary infections take internally in a capsule along with lemongrass essential oil.
- If strep throat or tonsilitis is bothering you, gargle one drop of oregano essential oil in a glass of water.
- Diffuse oregano essential oil or apply directly to your skin to shift an obstinate mood into a more unattached frame of mind. Be careful with diffusing. The first time I diffused oregano Andy came home and totally expected to be fed spaghetti and meatballs. Needless to say, he was not happy at all with dinner that night.
- Ward off staph infection and MRSA by taking oregano internally in a capsule or by diluting it with a carrier oil and applying it directly to the problem area.
