Oregano Essential Oil

Oregano has an extensive history and was one of the most commonly used herbs for medicinal purposes dating back as early as 3000 BC. During the Greek and Roman times, it is said to have received its name from the Greek word “oros” and “ganos” which mean “joy of the mountains”. It is believed to have originated in the mountainsides of Mediterranean region. Some of the original uses for Oregano Essential Oil were to cure headaches, as an antidote for poisonous stings and bites, and to assist in the healing of many respiratory conditions.

During the middle ages, Oregano had a spiritual and magical following. It was often planted around graves and carried around as a sort of good luck charm to achieve happiness and serenity. It was also a common custom to plant Oregano around the perimeter of the home to protect residents from evil. But today, it is widely known as a culinary herb used to add aroma and flavor to a variety of dishes.

Thanks to carvacrol being one of the main components in Oregano Essential Oil, it may help to fight bacteria and reduce inflammation. Research has even shown it to be effective against potentially antibiotic-resistant bacteria. It also contains thymol, making this medicinal herb anti-fungal and beneficial in helping to treat conditions such as athletes' foot and nail fungus.
