Here is some research on the Benefits of Oregano Oil:
Oregano essential oils is a potent oil which is antiseptic and kills parasites, viruses, bacteria and
fungus. Inhaled, it is believed to be beneficial for respiratory conditions that are bacterial or viral in
nature. It also contains analgesic properties and works as an expectorant. Oregano is a good
effective sedative. Tests have shown that it is one of the most effective oils to relax brain waves. It is
a calm relaxing oil that can ease muscle spasms, stiff joints, coughing, indigestion and menstrual
cramps. It has been used as a traditional remedy for digestive upsets, respiratory problems
(asthma, bronchitis, coughs, etc.) colds, and flu as well as for inflammations of the mouth and
throat. In China it is also used to treat fever, vomiting, diarrhea, jaundice and itchy skin conditions.
The (diluted) oil has been used externally in herbal medicine for headaches, rheumatism, general
aches and pains, and applied to stings and bites. Used as a fragrance component in soaps,
colognes and perfumes, especially a mans fragrance.

There are so many benefits to this organic herb. The Greeks knew of its healing and health
maintenance qualities thousands of years ago.
Immune Stimulant: As an immune system booster, oregano is unparalleled in the plant kingdom. It is
many times stronger than echinacea or goldenseal. A couple of drops daily are enough to
supercharge your immune system, which is your first and most powerful defense against disease.
Antibiotic and Antiseptic: Tooth and gum infections respond quickly to oregano oil, due to its
powerful antibacterial and antiseptic properties. The oil is applied directly to the gums and teeth.
Regular treatment will vastly improve oral health and hygiene. Many people suffering from a variety
of chronic infections have seen them disappear quickly after using the oil internally and externally.
Antiviral: Oregano oil has been used very successfully in treating viral conditions, such as colds, flu,
shingles, herpes and warts. The fact that wild oregano oil can stop a cold or flu if taken at the first
sin of symptoms is indicative of its amazing powers.
Antifungal: The aggressive antifungal properties of oregano oil work effectively against stubborn
fungal infections such as candida and nail fungus. Mix a few drops with shampoo to get rid of
dandruff or seborrhea, which are caused by fungal infection of the scalp. Take some to the locker
room to eradicate athlete´s foot.
Although there is a combined effect of the many compounds found in oregano oil, its effectiveness
is largely attributed to its primary ingredient, a phenol named carvacrol. When lab tested, carvacrol
was found to be one of the most potent antibiotics known to science. In tests done at Georgetown
University, it was found to be more effective than penicillin, streptomycin and even vancomycin
(considered to be the strongest of all antibiotics). Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics, oregano oil
does not create resistant strains of mutant bacteria. It is able to naturally and effectively eliminate
any pathogen that is unfortunate enough to cross its path.
