Oregano - The antibiotic of nature

The potent essential oil comes from the same oregano that you likely have in your kitchen herb garden or sitting, dried and crumbled, in a jar in your herb and spice pantry.

Who knew that the oregano in our favorite recipes can culminate in such a potent essential oil?

In addition to a wide range of medicinal uses, oregano essential oil can be used as a natural antibiotic, but without the side effects. The key is to always dilute and use it properly because it is a potent plant-based medicine!

Oregano comes from the Mediterranean. As such, its popularity began in Greece and Rome, then spread to Europe and eventually the rest of the Western world. Oregano means Joy of The Mountain in Ancient Greek. The essential oil is distilled from the leaves and flowers of the plant, similar to the parts used for culinary purposes.

Oregano (Origanum vulgare and Origanum majorana) is extracted via distillation; each kilo of oil is a product of more than 500kg of the plant.


Of the wide range of antibacterial essential oils available to us, oregano oil is one of the most potent. With antibiotic resistance on the rise, having natural alternatives available is more important than ever. Use oregano oil as part of the first response to sickness to help beat bacterial illness.

Application: Inhalation, culinary use, and diluted topical treatments can all introduce oregano’s antibacterial effects as needed.


Viruses are such a struggle because there isn’t really a way to “cure” them. Think about common flu and cold medicines- They only promise a shorter duration or lessened symptoms. A strong antiviral works by disabling viral cells, which slows the spread ,it holds the virus down so the immune system can deal with it.

Oregano essential oil’s main component, carvacrol, stands out as a potent antiviral, with so many viral illnesses circulating, having this oil can help keep you and your loved ones well.


After showing itself to be a strong antimicrobial, oregano oil doesn't stop there and reveals itself as antifungal, as well!

Stop fungal infections with oregano essential oil, before the discomfort really sets in.

Application: Mix into a carrier oil and use in a warm foot bath to enjoy the antifungal benefits of the oregano essential oil.

You can as well use it to clean moldy surfaces in your home, better mixed with Lavender for a nice smell.
