Why do I never want to go without having oregano essential oil in my house? And, if I had to choose just a few essential oils, which are highly concentrated plant extracts, why would oregano probably be in the mix?
Most of us think of oregano simply as a spice, or as something that we keep in our pantry to sprinkle on our favorite Italian foods. However, it does seems as if ancient people had great wisdom adding this spice to their foods in the days before refrigeration.
Oregano is loaded with antioxidants and has scientifically proven ability to fight bacterial, viral and even fungal infections. With cold and flu season right around the corner, I certainly want to have powerful germ fighters such as oregano on hand, just in case.
The product shown above is from Aura Cacia, a company that makes affordable high-quality oils.
Women who are pregnant should not use essential oils unless directed to by a physician or a midwife.
