Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional practices. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed.
When combined with more traditional, medically approved remedies, oregano oil is also sometimes used for the treatment or management of many other issues because of its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants in oregano include vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A, lysine, arginine, tryptophan, and valine, and because of this, the essential oil can assist in ridding the body of free radicals that are responsible for several health issues.
Oregano is rich in nutrients such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus and fibre. Therefore, the essential oil can be used to make up for dietary shortfalls and promote good gut health. Of course, it should be observed that a rich, varied diet is essential to proper nutrition, and oregano oil should only be used to supplement a balanced diet, rather than replace any component of it.
Like most essential oils, oregano essential oil is highly concentrated and can elicit varying reactions when used directly. Therefore, it’s recommended that the user dilute the oil properly with a carrier oil before usage. You should also do a skin patch test to check your body’s reaction to oregano essential oil prior to use.
Essential oils must be used and applied with caution, careful consideration and in moderation due to the fact they are highly concentrated.
