Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional health practices for its cleansing and immune-boosting properties.
The primary chemical components of Oregano are carvacol and thymol, both in the phenols group, which possess cleansing and antioxidant properties. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. One drop taken daily can help maintain healthy immune function; Oregano can be taken more frequently when seasonal threats are high or as needed to further boost immunity. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with when applied to the skin because it is so intense. I personally like Fractionated Coconut Oil from Doterra.
In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano supports healthy digestion by promoting the secretion of digestive juices. Oregano also acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends and can help support healthy respiratory function when taken internally.
