Oregano Oil – A Powerful Antimicrobial!
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on March 20, 2012 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Like its Mediterranean cousin Olive, which we discussed recently, the aromatic Oregano plant has also been used medicinally since the time of ancient Greece and Rome.
Oregano Oil is an essential oil distilled from the aerial parts of the Origanum vulgare plant, and is truly one of nature’s most powerful antimicrobials.
Oregano essential oil contains the powerful antiseptic compound, carvacrol, which provides broad-spectrum antimicrobial action against a wide variety of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast (including Candida), and parasites.
Oregano Oil can provide effective relief for:
• Sore throats
• Sinus infections
• Colds & flu
• Fungal infections of skin and nails
• Yeast (Candida)
Capsules containing a concentrated extract of Oregano oil are an excellent option for intestinal Candida overgrowth or parasites, respiratory infections, or to augment the topical treatment of fungal infections.
If you’re looking for powerful, natural immune system support, look to Oregano Oil!
