Known as a popular cooking spice, oregano also acts as a powerful cleansing agent, and offers powerful antioxidants*—extending its uses far beyond the kitchen.
Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional practices. The primary chemical components of oregano is carvacrol, a phenol that possesses antioxidant properties when ingested. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with a carrier oil when applied to the skin. One drop taken internally each day can help maintain healthy immune function; Oregano can be taken more frequently as needed to further support the immune system.* In addition to being a popular cooking spice, oregano also supports healthy digestion and respiratory function when taken internally.* Oregano’s aroma acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends.
Some of my favorite ways to use oregano essential oil:
– Take one drop in a veggie cap or 4 fl. oz of liquid daily to maintain healthy immune function*
– Add one to two drops to a veggie capsule to support healthy respiratory function*
– Put one drop in place of dried oregano in spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or on a roast
– Put 10 drops in a 16-ounce spray bottle with water for a surface cleaner.

Every essential oil has an emotional component. Oregano essential oil is The Oil of Humility and Non-Attachment. Oregano cuts through the fluff of life and teaches individuals to do the same. It removes blocks, clears negativity and cuts away negative attachments. Oregano is a powerful essential oil and may even be described as forceful or intense. Oregano addresses a person’s need to be :right.” The individual in need of oregano may attempt to convert other people to their own fixed opinions. Their strong will can make them unteachable and unwilling to budge. They hold rigidly to their opinions and belief systems. However, oregano is resolute and has the power to break through a strong will. On the deepest level, oregano dispels materialism and attachment that hinders an individual’s growth and progress. While using oregano, a person may feel encouraged to end a toxic relationship, quit an oppressive job, or end a lifelong addiction. These toxic attachments limit one’s capacity to feel a healthy connection to the Divine. Oregano encourages true spirituality by inviting the soul to live in non-attachment. It teaches that devotion to one’s Higher Power includes letting go of rigidity, willfulness, negative attachments and materialism. (Taken from Emotions & Essential Oils: A Modern Resource for Healing)
