Nope. It’s not some new-fangled cooking oil to fry up a batch of chicken legs. The use of oregano oil for medicinal purposes dates back to the ancient Greeks, ancient Egyptians and, as you might expect, those awesome Chinese healers. It was used by Hippocrates in the B.C era and has a reputation dating back centuries as an anti-toxin for poisoning.
Oregano oil (origanum vulgare) hails from bushy perennial oregano shrubs originally found in the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean and parts of Asia. Flowers and leaves are harvested from the oregano plant when essential oil content is at its peak. Two processes for making oregano oil are distillation to obtain pure oil (typically in products from commercial suppliers) and the infusion method, typically done at home by seeping the leaves into another oil, such as olive oil.
I consider oregano oil to be one of the most significant, most powerful natural medicinal agents found in nature. I call it nature’s “Clorox bleach” for the human body. (does that sound kinda creepy?)
WHAT DOES OREGANO OIL CONTAIN THAT MAKES IT SO POWERFUL?
