Oregano oil is an extract of the widely used herb Oregano, but unlike the oregano you use in cooking (Origanum Marjoram), Oregano Oil is derived from Origanum Vulgar, a species of oregano which contains high concentrations of the naturally occurring compound carvacrol.

Carvacrol, along with thymol, is the two key components of Oregano. They have been shown to have many health benefits.

The wonderful properties of the Oil of Oregano have been documented for thousands of years. It is believed to have been first used in ancient Greece.

Contains no additives.

Oregano oil has proven to be a powerful, plant-derived essential oil that may rival antibiotics when it comes to treating or preventing various infections. In fact, it contains properties that are antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal.

In addition, oregano essential oil is unlikely to cause many of the harmful side effects that are commonly attributed to high use of antibiotics — such as the increased risk for antibiotic resistance, poor gut health due to destroying beneficial probiotic bacteria, reduced vitamin absorption and leaky gut syndrome due to damage of the gastrointestinal tract’s lining.

Meanwhile, oregano oil benefits extend beyond just controlling infections. What else is oregano essential oil used to treat?

Common examples of conditions that oregano oil can help manage include:

  • Athlete’s foot or toenail fungus
  • Common colds
  • Gingivitis
  • Earaches or toothaches
  • Digestive problems, such as heartburn and small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)

What Is Oregano Oil?

Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is a herb that is a member of the mint family (Labiatae). It has been considered a precious plant commodity for over 2,500 years in folk medicines that originated across the globe.

It has a very long use in traditional medicine for treating colds, indigestion and upset stomachs.

You might have some experience cooking with fresh or dried oregano leaves — such as oregano spice, one of the top herbs for healing — but oregano essential oil is far from what you’d put in your pizza sauce.

Found in the Mediterranean, throughout many parts of Europe, and in South and Central Asia, medicinal grade oregano is distilled to extract the essential oil from the herb, which is where a high concentration of the herb’s active constituents are found. It takes over 1,000 pounds of wild oregano to produce just one pound of oregano essential oil, in fact.

The oil’s active ingredients are preserved in alcohol and used in essential oil form both topically (on the skin) and internally.

When made into a medicinal supplement or essential oil, oregano is often called “oil of oregano.” As mentioned above, oregano oil is considered a natural alternative to prescription antibiotics.

Oil of oregano contains two powerful compounds called carvacrol and thymol, both of which have been shown in studies to have strong antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Oregano’s oil is primarily made of carvacrol, while studies show that the plant’s leaves contain a variety of antioxidant compounds, such as phenols, triterpenes, rosmarinic acid, ursolic acid and oleanolic acid.
