Oregano isn’t just a delicious addition to a slice of pizza. This beautiful herb packs a lot of perks for your health and wellness.
Oregano’s a flowering plant that’s part of the Lamiaceae family. It’s been used as a tasty herb and holistic remedy for centuries. Thanks to its high antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory effects, it’s been used to treat pain, achy muscles, yeast infections, high cholesterol, blood sugar imbalances, asthma and tummy trouble like diarrhea and indigestion.
Research suggests that oregano essential oil might help stave off potentially antibiotic-resistant bacteria like E. coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Oregano oil contains:
- carvacrol, the main active compound in oregano oil and a type of antioxidant called a phenol
- thymol, which may help protect against toxins and fight fungal infections
As you can see Oil of Oregano is pretty amazing. I take 5 drops everyday under my tongue for health. Spiritual Apothecary's Oil of Oregano has been submerged in Organic Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Olive Oil for 8 weeks to deliver the maximum benefits and preserve the plant as much as possible.
*Pregnant and Nursing women should not take Oil of Oregano, see your healthcare provider for children's dosage and advisement*
How often do you take it and for how long? I’m an avid user but love to hear other’s experiences and suggestions. I usually take it for two weeks and then take a break for a little bit. What’s your regimen?
