Oregano 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; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano 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 can be taken more frequently as needed to further support the immune system. In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano also supports healthy digestion and respiratory function when taken internally. Oregano’s aroma acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends.
Do not use on open wounds. Since our oils are 100% pure and undiluted, care should be taken when applying directly to the skin. We recommend adding all of our essential oils to a carrier such as almond oil or jojoba oil before applying to skin. We also recommend thoroughly diluting all essential oils before ingesting.
