Quick Overview

This Synergy Essentials 100% pure Oregano oil is obtained from a steam distillation of whole Oregano herbs wild crafted in Turkey. This is a very potent, pure oregano essential oil with a balance of important constituents, including high levels of Carvacrol. Oregano is considered to have the strongest antibacterial action of any essential oil.

Also called 'wild marjoram', 'grove marjoram' and 'joy of the mountain', this variety of Oregano is a hardy perennial herb that grows in a bush up to 90 centimeters in height with small, ovate, fragrant leaves and pink-purple flowers.

Immune System:

  • Oregano is one of the strongest antibacterial essential oils. You can smell the oil's power from the first moment the bottle is opened - the aroma is quite intense. According to some aromatherapists, the essential oil may be best used when a strong response to bacterial infection is needed; it has a broad spectrum of bactericidal and anti-microbial action.
  • Unlike manufactured antibiotics, there is no known tendency for microbes to develop resistance to the effectiveness of oregano. The oil can kill or halt the growth of virtually any fungus and a great majority of bacteria. In the book The Practice of Aromatherapy Jean Valnet discusses how it is potent enough to sterilize sewage water other researchers performed this test and found a 1/4000 dilution of the oil sterilized septic water.

  • Researchers at Georgetown University found oregano oil at relatively low doses inhibited the growth of staphylococcus bacteria as effectively as the standard antibiotics. Again, literature suggests taking the oil internally, 3 drops in a cup of warm water several times a day.

Digestive:

  • Oregano oil is most broadly employed to treat gastrointestinal and bronchial infections. Carvacrol and Thymol are the primary active constituents. These compounds act as antibacterials, antispasmodics, increase the production of gastric juices, ease bloating and gas and can relieve menstrual cramps.

  • Combats E. Coli, Salmonella and Pseudomonas bacteria (a strain that is becoming more difficult to treat with conventional medicine due to development of drug resistance).

Reproductive:

  • Oil of Oregano is considered one of the strongest inhibitors of internal yeast infection (Candida). Among 52 plant oils tested in one study, oregano was found to have the strongest action against Candida albicans.

Application and Use

Topical:

  • Apply oil topically to the bottom of the feet; if applied elsewhere, dilute 1:50 in carrier oil. Avoid contact with mucous membranes - it will burn!
  • Fungal infection of finger and toenails is a common ailment effectively addressed with the oil. Rub a small amount of oregano into each affected area until the infection is completely cleared. If the oil is too strong and irritating to the skin, dilute 50/50 with olive oil. Don't worry that you are loosing potency by diluting an essential oil; most of the time, "less is more" when using any pure essential oil. Another effective blend can be made with oregano and tea tree oil, used in the same manner.

Ingestion:

  • Can be taken internally - dilute in water, 1 or 2 drops per glass.

    Oregano can be taken internally, to boost immune system function: add 1 to 2 drops first to a carrier oil like Olive (or any other edible oil) and then to warm water, taken several times per day.

Safety
Oregano oil is non-toxic, non-sensitizing and a non-irritant. Do not ingest without first diluting, as it can burn the inside of the mouth.

French aroma medical literature advises refraining from long term use due to possible undesirable changes in liver metabolism.
