The Power of Oil of Oregano
OIL OF OREGANO, which is distilled from the flowers and leaves of the oregano plant, could be one of nature's most powerful antibiotics. This natural and versatile oil can be used in multiple ways to help defend you from infection by dangerous bacteria.
How to Use It: Make an Oregano Oil hand sanitizer: Because Oregano Oil is strong, you should first dilute it. Combine 10 drops of Oregano Oil with two tablespoons of coconut oil. Rub it into your hands as a natural hand sanitizer. Though it might look shiny at first, as it soaks in it can also help nourish your skin to keep your hands soft and smooth.
Vaporize it: Dangerous bacteria can inhabit your respiratory system and stir up trouble. To help your immune system fight a respiratory infection, put one drop of Oil of Oregano in a bowl of steaming water. Put a towel loosely over your head and inhale the steam once a day until you feel better. Of course, if your doctor has prescribed you antibiotics, don't stop taking them, and be sure to see a doctor if your symptoms are severe or don't improve.
Make a spot treatment for your skin: Because of its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, some experts have advocated the use Oil of Oregano to treat skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Combine equal amounts of Oregano Oil and olive or coconut oil and apply it to your problem areas with a cotton swab before you go to bed. Let it soak in, but don’t use it directly on any broken skin like cuts or scrapes.
Use it to brush your teeth: Oil of Oregano also contains thymol, an ingredient used in many mouthwashes to combat bacteria, plaque and bad breath. Try adding a drop or two of Oil of Oregano on your toothbrush with or without toothpaste.
Take it for your tummy: Animal studies suggest that oregano and Oregano Oil can help fight parasitic infections and reduce infectious diarrhea. It may also affect the digestive ecosystem and alter the stomach's emptying rate. Adults over 18 can try capsules that contain 45 mg of pure Oil of Oregano once daily with meals.
