Oregano Oil Uses and Benefits
What are Oregano Oil Uses and Benefits? Oil of Oregano is well-known in the Mediterranean for its ability to stop the common cold and flu, eliminating yeast and fungi, and knocking out allergies, hay fever and sinusitis. With its many therapeutic uses, Oil of Wild Oregano can be used internally and externally to address numerous health conditions.
It takes about 200 pounds of Orgianum Vulgare herb (the most potent type of oregano) to produce 2 pounds of Oil of Oregano. We mix this most potent oil 50/50 with M.C.T. Oil (medium chain triglycerides) to make our product. The M.C.T. is a coconut extract that does not change molecular (go rancid) from light, heat or with time. The M.C.T. Oil acts as a solvent, aiding penetration into the skin when used topically. Our Oil of Oregano is guaranteed to be 75-80% Carvacrol.
Since our Oil of Wild Oregano is highly potent and in a 1:1 mixture with M.C.T. (medium chain triglycerides), you can dilute it with more M.C.T. or any other oil if it is too strong in any particular application. If you cannot find M.C.T. oil at you local health food store, you can use a high-grade of virgin olive oil, or another cold-pressed oil.
When used internally start with small amounts of one drop twice daily working your way up to one drop four times per day. You may mix the oil with one teaspoon of honey, maple syrup, or olive oil to improve palatability.
Take for a period of 15 days and then stop for 15 days. Then repeat the process.
Topical Use: Apply Oil of Wild Oregano directly to affected region once or twice daily; use more often if necessary. If rash/irritation occurs, discontinue use.
On Skin: Rub a few drops vigorously into the affected area. Repeat as necessary.
In Shampoos: Add a few drops of Oil of Wild Oregano to your shampoo. After shampooing allow the lather to sit for a few minutes, then rinse.
In Soap: Add a few drops to all pump soaps and use during showering and hand washing for excellent antisepsis.
On Gums and Teeth: Use a drop on your toothbrush instead of toothpaste to brush your teeth. Rub on gums and teeth for various indications. Apply once or twice daily.
For Warts or Boils: Saturate affected area(s). Cover with a bandage. Repeat dressing until lesions are clear.
Toe Fungus and Athlete’s Foot: Put a drop on top of the toe nail and spread over the affected area. The oil will penetrate through the nail to kill the fungus underneath. Rub the oil between the toes to relieve athlete’s foot problems. You will notice a change in a few days.
Add a drop or two of Oil of Wild Oregano to a glass of juice or milk and drink. You can put a drop under your tongue, but be warned it may taste hot and require some fluids if it is uncomfortable to you.
Taken internally Oil of Wild Oregano is highly effective against a wide range of yeast, fungi, bacteria, and candida albicans. It also kills internal parasites and pathogens.
The vapors from Oil of Wild Oregano can be inhaled to clear the air of bacteria and fungi. A small cloth with a few drops of the oil can be sniffed occasionally while riding on public transportation or when in crowds.
Vaginal membranes and other genital regions: Exert caution here, as significant heat and burning sensation will result. Oregano oil is a peppery spice. For application to sensitive genital regions be sure to dilute a few drops of the oil in a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. Apply as needed.
Diaper Rash or other Infantile Conditions: Avoid using straight oil on infants; always dilute by placing a few drops of the oil in a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil. If stronger dosages are needed, use only a drop at a time on an infant’s skin.
There are no known side effects and Oil of Wild Oregano is compatible with any other natural remedy or prescription drug.
