Organic Oregano Oil is one of the most potent essential oils on the market. The oregano plant has been used for centuries for culinary, medicinal, and aromatherapy purposes. Through steam distillation of fresh organic oregano leaves, you create Oil of Oregano. Here are four uses for organic oregano oil that you can try today.
Respiratory and Allergy
Diffuse 6-8 drop of organic Oregano Oil to help both respiratory illnesses such as cold and flus as well as seasonal allergy attacks. The Oregano Oil loosens up and eliminates mucus buildup in your sinuses. It also will calm the inflamed areas of the throat and lungs helping to reduce coughing fits.
Antifungal and Antiviral
The antifungal and antiviral properties of Oregano Oil are pretty amazing. It can be used at the first sign of a cold sore and even works to fight dandruff in your hair. Add just a couple drops to either grapeseed, sweet almond, or jojoba oil and massage it in. It has been shown to heal dry, chapped skin and there is evidence it can help alleviate the pain and symptoms that come with psoriasis.
Natural Mosquito Repellent
Mosquitos aren’t high on anyone’s fan list. Thankfully, organic oregano oil is a natural mosquito repellent. You can use it in a couple of different ways. First, make a mosquito repelling spray and add a few drops to carrier oil. Then spray this combination onto your skin and rub wherever you don’t want to be bitten! You can also spray your clothes to keep the mosquitos at bay. If you are out camping, spray the tent and especially the opening flaps with the repellent.
Relax Those Tired Muscles
When your muscles are extra tight and you just can’t seem to relax, reach for your organic Oregano Essential Oil. Use your favorite carrier oil like sweet almond, coconut, jojoba, or grapeseed. Add in 3-5 drops of the Oil of Oregano and for an added boost, 3-5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. These two together will help melt away those tired muscles and leave a calm, relaxing scent to help you unwind from a hard day.
