Known as a popular cooking spice, Oregano oil also acts as a powerful cleansing agent, and offers powerful antioxidants*—extending its uses far beyond the kitchen.
Oregano oil 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 essential oil; only one to two drops is needed.
Additionally, Oregano oil 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 oil can be taken more frequently as needed to further support the immune system.* In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano oil also supports healthy digestion and respiratory function when taken internally.* Oregano oil's aroma acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends.
Aromatic use: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fluid ounces of liquid.
Topical use:: To apply topically, dilute one drop essential oil to 10 drops carrier oil. See additional precautions below.
