Let’s talk Phenols.
Sound boring? I know… but in actuality Phenols are fascinating and pure essential oils comprised of high levels of Phenols are some of the most powerful…
… oils in the plant world. Pure therapeutic grade oregano oil can constitute up to 80% of Phenols! Phenolic compounds that act as antioxidants might also help promote healthy aging by minimizing DNA damage caused by free radicals. (Source)
This oil also contains up to 75% carvacrol, an antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, and expectorant. Scientific research has shown carvacrol, one of oregano’s chemical components appears to reduce infection as effectively as traditional antibiotics! (Source)
Oregano oil may just be the most potent plant oil in the world! It is very powerful so use with caution and dilute accordingly!!
Topical Use (Dilute 1:3 – 1 drop essential oil to 3 drops carrier oil)**:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Aromatic Use (Diffuse or Inhale):
Stimulate Immune System
To make your space smell like an Italian eatery
** Dilute more heavily for use on children. Oregano oil is considered a “hot oil” and can cause skin irritation if not diluted correctly.
I always incorporate oregano oil when one of us comes down with any respiratory or viral infections. I swear by it. I dilute it appropriately with a carrier oil and rub it on my feet and chest. I also inhale directly to assist with coughing and stuffy noses.
It is magical… AND again very powerful so use caution. Be sure to test you and yours before using as mentioned above.
Disclaimer: Research all oils before using. We recommend only using high quality organic and therapeutic grade essential oils.
