Oregano oil is an essential oil made from the oregano plant that is purported to have healing properties. Research shows oregano oil has antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties. In addition compounds in oregano oil are also potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, and cancer-suppressor agents.
(Please note: Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that can be harmful if not used carefully and properly, and may cause irritation when applied to the skin. We encourage you to dilute oils at all times with any carrier oil and exercise caution when using them. We do not recommend using essential oils internally.)
