I’m Italian!  I love Oregano & Garlic (little basil too).

Oregano

Oregano oil is considered a Hot Oil.  It’s 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.

I used a mixture of Oregano & Melaleuca oils when I had Shingles.  My Shingles lasted about 2 weeks-my brothers lasted about 2 1/2 months!

That’s a huge difference much less when your breastfeeding!

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. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with fractionated coconut oil when applied to the skin.

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.

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.
