If any plant deserves a standing ovation, it is oregano but most notably the many oregano oil uses. A potent antioxidant and antibacterial agent, this succulent herb is a gift to mankind as a valuable herbal remedy to assist in many pesky ailments. Even the ancient Greeks and Romans used it for medicinal purposes. All parts of the herb can be used in treating various health issues but this old bird will focus on the oil.
It is worth noting that not all oregano oils are equal. Don’t be fooled by labels that read “Oil of Oregano” or “Oregano Oil.” These are imposters and not suitable in your arsenal of medicinal herbs. Rather, you want the best and it so happens, it is “Oil of WILD Oregano” with no less than 75% Carvacrol and harvested in the Mediterranean. For those of us who are not privy to live nearby, it is important to make sure no pesticides were used. Organic is the way to go!
A few of my experiences with Oregano Oil Uses:
- Crapola! A sinus infection, you say? 3-4 drops of oil in a 00 capsule twice a day for 7 days with a glass of water with food. By the 2nd day, I noticed the pain began to fade away.
- An infection from a skin wound? 1 drop of oil in a tsp of olive or coconut oil. Healed within a few days.
- A sore throat? 3 drops of oil in a glass of water. The next day, no more aching throat.
- Oh nooo, a toenail infection! 4 drops of oil (3 times a day) on infected toe. Pain disappeared within a few hours, infection vanished after a few days.
Need I say more? It’s no wonder that this herb has become a favorite remedy for its many oregano oil uses. It is my number one choice to combat colds, viruses and infections. I keep it in my satchel during my travels through the woodlands. But don’t take my word for it. Give it a try and save yourself the dreaded doctor’s visit.
