Oregano is certainly versatile whenever mealtime rolls around. But oregano essential oil (scientifically known as origanum vulgare in case you were wondering) is also extremely well-rounded. Using oregano essential oil has really begun to gain in popularity in the early 21st century.
Oregano Is Not Just for the Kitchen Anymore!
You can expect a crisp and herbal scent from oregano oil. Unlike the majority of essential oils used in aromatherapy, oregano does not necessarily have what you would consider an attractive or desirable smell. But as an antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic, and immune system stimulant it is extremely effective.
Just as eating oregano with your meals is good for you, oregano oil offers many health benefits.
Using Oregano Essential Oil for Health
It’s also great for treating everything from athlete’s foot to whooping cough. Warts and calluses, Candida and canker sores, fungal infections and muscle aches all bow down to the power of oregano.
This versatile essential oil is effective for fighting viruses, colds, pneumonia and harmful bacteria, because it strengthens your immune system.
Taken internally, oregano is often used to treat staph infections and parasites. Place a towel over your head and add 2 drops of oregano oil to a pan of steaming water, and you can effectively treat a host of respiratory and nasal conditions.
Because of its many benefits, you might find yourself using oregano essential oil more and more!
