Most of you are probably unaware of the fact that oregano oil is the most powerful natural antibiotic known to science.
According to HealthLine:
“Oregano oil comes from the leaves and shoots of the oregano plant. Botanically known as Origanum vulgare, oregano is a flowering plant from the same family as mint. It is often used as an herb to flavor food.
Although it is native to Europe, it now grows all over the world. Oregano has been popular ever since the Greeks and Romans used it for medicinal purposes in ancient times. In fact, the name oregano comes from the Greek words “oros,” meaning mountain, and “ganos,” meaning joy or delight.
Oregano oil is made by air-drying the leaves and shoots of the plant. Once they are dried, the oil is extracted and concentrated by steam distillation. “
It has extremely potent healing properties and contains three times more antioxidants than blueberries, which protect against free radical damage.
It is abundant in carvacrol, which is a powerful antibacterial against many strains of bacteria. It destroys their cell membranes and inhibits their replication.
Moreover, this oil destroys the dangerous bacteria only and does not affect the beneficial probiotic bacteria.
Oregano essential oil is full of minerals and vitamins, including manganese, potassium, magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron, vitamins C, A (beta-carotene), Niacin, copper, and boron.
It contains four groups of chemical, which are active healing agents, and act as antioxidants and antiseptics, and have powerful anesthetic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. Some of them are Linalool and borneol, and linalyl acetate and geranyl acetate.
When choosing your oregano essential oil, make sure it has been steam-distilled, contains between 50% and 85% carvacrol, and is 100% pure, raw, unprocessed.
You should always dilute it with a carrier oil and take it orally for only 7-10 days at a time.
