Oregano Oil doesn’t mess around!

If you need a power-house of a plant oil to fix what may be ailing you, then you may want to try Oregano Oil (Origanum vulgare).

To start, here are a few things this plant oil tackles:

  • Bacterial Infections
  • Fungal Infections
  • Viral Infections
  • Parasites
  • Inflammation
  • Free Radicals
  • Cell Death
  • Colds, Flu, Bronchitis
  • Intestinal Problems
  • Yeast Infections
Researchers at the University of Tennessee reported that among various plant oils, Oregano Oil enxhibited the greatest anti-bacterial action against common pathogenic germs, such as staph, E. coli and listeria. KAPOW! Take that germs!

Jean Valnet (1920-1995), a doctor pioneer of essential oils during his time, thought of Oregano Oil as being one of the most potent anti-inflammatories, reversing pain and inflammation with almost the power of morphine.

But use it with caution! Because Oregano Oil is so potent, that you will probably need to dilute it, especially when using it externally. I know from experience, it burns like heck if you put it directly on your skin without diluting; it’s HOT. Always make sure you test the oils first to see how you respond to them.

Here are a few ways to use Oregano Oil:

  • For bacterial and fungal infections, dilute 1 drop of oil in 8 ounces of water or juice and take internally twice a day.
  • Put 2-3 drops of oil in an empty vegetable capsules and take internally once or twice a day when needed for immune support.
  • Dilute with fractioned coconut oil (1:3 ratio) and apply topically to affected area.

Oregano oil is certified by the FDA as GRAS (meaning you can take it internally); however, it is a very strong oil, so dilution in a carrier oil is recommended, especially for ingestion.

Interested in making your own anti-inflammation salve? Here’s a great recipe from Live In Art. Although, I would change the recipe to use my already prepared DoTERRA Oregano Oil because I think it’s so powerful. Hey, that’s a pretty cool website for natural remedy recipes so look around while you are there.
