Oil of Oregano
« on: November 04, 2009, 08:59:35 AM »


Just ordered me a little bottle of this cure-all, never tried before, quite expensive too, $30.
Sounds cool though and i'm a big fan of all-cures.

Here's the details :

Oil of Oregano - Extra Strength - 30ml

Enerex's Extra Strength Oil of Oregano is wild crafted from chemical-free, pure, wild Mediterranean Oregano (Origanum vulgare). Wild oregano is an oil-rich plant. Enerex's Oil of Oregano contains a minimum of 80% carvacrol, an aromatic phenolic compound, found in plants such as oregano and savoury and is used in flavourings and fungicides.

The oil is obtained from the dried leaves and flowers of the herb by steam extraction using a special technology. It takes 1000 kg of the desiccated herb to produce 15 - 30 kg of the essential oil. The oil is then blended with organic, 1st pressing, extra virgin olive oil in the ratio of 40% oregano and 60% olive oil. This is necessary as pure Oil of Oregano is too harsh to consume orally.

Oil of Oregano is the premier product that may help support and maintain a healthy digestive and immune system. It is ideal for using in the maintenance of digestive health.


Ingredients:

60% certified organic extra virgin olive oil, 40% Oil of Oregano (Origanurn vulgare: minimum 80% Carvacrol).

CONTAINS NO artificial preservatives, colours or flavours, added starch, sugar lactose, milk, salt, yeast, wheat or gluten.


Dosage Guide:

Internal Use:

Take 1 - 3 drops daily under the tongue (heat sensation will dissipate quickly) or taken mixed with water, juice, tea or honey.

External Use:

Apply a few drops on desired area and rub. Warming sensation is normal.

Let us know how it goes. I've been meaning to brew up some eucalyptus oil but haven't gotten around to it. Been using Apple Cider Vinegar lately but I haven't noticed much of anything... I haven't gotten sick in years anyway though.

I been using the apple cider in a little spray bottle for cleaning monitor screen, mouse and such things.
I tried on my face too but didn't notice anything, unlike the aloe-vera.
I have high hopes for this stuff though and will inform on progress. :)

Just a friendly warning, the taste can be quite strong. The trick I've used and it seems to work well if you want to avoid the taste of it completely is to put some orange juice in a shot glass, drop 5 drops of oil right in the middle of the glass full of juice and then shoot it. I tried putting it into a normal sized glass full of juice and stirring it, but the oil of oregano seems to bind to anything it touches. So most of it will stick to your spoon or the side of the glass if it comes in contact with it.

I have had great success with oil of oregano, especially with my kids.  I put a drop in food everyday, and apply it diluted in oil externally as needed.  This link says not to use it while pregnant or breastfeeding, but I have used it with an older baby with no problems, I think they have to warn that for the first trimester and newborns.

Oil of Oregano

Copyright Bee Wilder

Oregano Oil is a very versatile herb, which is not only a strong antifungal but also provides many other health benefits and it treats many types of disease and symptoms. As an antifungal it is extremely effective, just like raw crushed garlic.

A word of caution!

If you are taking blood thinning drugs, oil of oregano acts similarly in thinning the blood. If you take oregano oil with blood thinning drugs your blood pressure may drop too low and your blood may become too thin, so please work with your doctor on adjusting your medications accordingly.


Oil of Oregano is not recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.


Always dilute oil of oregano with unrefined coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil prior to using it; the usual mixture is 50/50.

True Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is a completely natural substance derived from wild oregano species. The plant grows in remote mountainous regions free of pollution. Only the leaves of the flowering plant are used. They are picked precisely when the plant is highest in essential oil.

Being wild, it is grown chemical-free and the oil is extracted via a completely natural process - no chemicals or solvents are used. The oil is the source of virtually all of the plant's active ingredients.

There are a wide variety of plants that are confused with oregano, including marjoram, thyme and sage. True oregano grows wild in Mediterranean regions such as Greece and Turkey. Wild oregano is the source of surprisingly potent oil of oregano.

The key element in oregano is the oil, which Foster points out in his book "In Herbal Renaissance" "contains carvacrol and thymol as the primary components." Foster attributes the "fungicidal and worm-expellant properties" of oil of oregano to carvacrol and thymol.

Cass Ingram, D.O., writes in his book "The Cure is in the Cupboard" "these two phenols [carvacrol and thymol] work "synergistically" and that is the reason "oil of oregano" packs a double punch in antiseptic power and explains why it is infinitely more potent than commercial phenol, in microbial killing power."

Treats Candida and Fungal Skin Conditions

All of this helps make oregano oil a significant factor in treating internal and external candida. Skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema, can be improved with oil of oregano as well. Ingram explains the astonishing discovery that "oil of oregano outright destroys all variety of fungi and yeasts, regardless of where they reside."

Oil of Oregano is a potent antiseptic used both topically and internally. Research demonstrates that it is effective in killing a range of organisms, particularly yeast and bacteria.

Effective Against Bacteria

Oil of oregano at relatively low doses was found to be effective against Staphylococcus bacteria and was comparable in its germ-killing properties to antibiotic drugs such as streptomycin, penicillin and vancomycin. [Science Daily 10/11/2001]

Researchers at the Department of Food Science at the University of Tennessee reported that, among various plant oils, oil of oregano exhibited the greatest antibacterial action against common pathogenic germs such as Staph, E. coli and Listeria. [Journal Food Protection, Volume 64, July 2001] British researchers reported oregano oil had antibacterial activity against 25 different bacteria. [Journal Applied Microbiology, Volume 88, February 2000]

The growing problem of antibiotic resistance has health authorities extremely concerned. It is already the case that various germs are showing resistance to vancomycin (strong antibiotic), particularly to intestinal bacteria (Enterococcal species) among hospitalized patients. [Southern Medical Journal, Volume 94, August 2001]

Drug resistance does not develop against naturally-occurring antibiotics such as garlic and oil of oregano. But oil of oregano is not to be confused with common oregano in the kitchen spice cupboard, which is usually oregano marjoram, rather than true oregano (Oregano vulgare).

The benefits of oregano have gone largely unnoticed and under-publicized for far too long. As Ingram notes, oregano is "one of the world's finest natural medicines that is if it's true oregano."

Oil of Oregano Oil Treats the Following:

allergies
antifungal, capable of killing a variety of fungi, including candida albicans
antioxidant powers
arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, and other related problems
athletes foot
bacterial infections and parasites
bee stings, insect bites and venomous bites, immediate relief from
dandruff, diaper rash, cradle cap
diarrhea and intestinal gas
digestive problems, aids digestion and stimulates the production of bile
eczema
immune system boost
migraine headaches
muscle aches and pains
nail fungus
pain killer nearly as powerful as morphine
psoriasis
respiratory problems, i.e. asthma, hay fever, candida in the lungs, etc.
sinus and nose problems
skin disorders and rashes
sore throat
thrush (white coating in the mouth, which is candida)
The oil of the oregano plant is the source of virtually all of its active ingredients. Oil of oregano is a potent germ killer and it has also been known to completely eliminate allergies and sinus problems. Jean Valnet, in his book "The Practice of Aromatherapy," describes how oil of oregano is so strong that it is capable of sterilizing sewage.

Research on Oil of Oregano

Researchers have uncovered numerous benefits to using oregano and extracted oil of oregano. But buyer beware, these significant health benefits are not as attainable if the oregano is not the true substance. "True" oil of oregano offers many exciting remedies for a variety of ailments.

Research published in the International Journal of Food Microbiology found that oil of oregano is an excellent germicide capable of killing a wide range of fungi and bacteria.

According to the Journal of Applied Nutrition oil of oregano is highly effective for killing Candida. Researchers in Mexico found it possesses strong anti-parasitic actions, especially against Giardia. As published by Sarer researchers its antiseptic powers are "remarkable."

Oil of oregano is also a powerful pain killer. An article published in Phytotherapy Research describes how oregano oil superseded (came before) anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation and is nearly as powerful as morphine as a pain killer.

Herbal Renaissance

In his book "Herbal Renaissance," Steven Foster credits oregano as having "been employed to treat indigestion, diarrhea, nervous tension, insect bites, toothache, earache, rheumatism and coughs due to whooping cough and bronchitis (primarily for it's antispasmodic effects)." The ancient Greeks were among the first to take advantage of oregano's medicinal qualities. The Greeks termed the spice origanos, meaning "delight of the mountains."

The Cure is in the Cupboard Book

Cass Ingram, D.O., has written the book "The Cure is in the Cupboard" that is dedicated to unveiling the health benefits of oregano and oil of oregano. He notes that "wild oregano is a veritable natural mineral treasure-house, containing a density of minerals that would rival virtually any food."

The wild oregano is rich in a long list of minerals that includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, boron, and manganese and vitamins C, A (beta carotene), and niacin. Judging from its mineral content alone, it isn't hard to figure out why oregano is such a valuable commodity.

Supermarket Remedies

Oregano is one of Nature's finest preservatives, states Ingram in another book, "Supermarket Remedies." The author suggests that if oregano is used with foods such as meat, eggs, milk, or salad, you "will greatly halt the growth of microbes and, thus, reduce the risk for food poisoning."

How to Take Oregano Oil

Oregano oil should never be used undiluted. Dilute it by mixing it 50/50 with unrefined coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil. Even then it can be too strong to take directly in the mouth, particularly if the product contains 80-87% carvacol, so test it carefully or put the drops in a teaspoon of oil to take it.

Please note: It is better to take oregano oil more frequently during the day, rather than taking a number of drops all at once.

When taking oregano oil it is recommended you drink plenty of water along with it. This helps flush your system of any toxins that may result when the oil kills off bacteria, parasites, candida and other pathogens.

To treat babies or children rub the diluted oil of oregano directly into their feet.

How to Treat Candida with Oil of Oregano

Oregano oil is a powerful antifungal. So it is wise to start with low doses and gradually increase them. The dose is dependent upon the strength of oil contained in the product that is purchased. Different brands can contain from 50% to 87% carvacol, which is one of the active substances in it. The more potent the brand the more it will cost. See a list of brands and their respective strengths at the end of this article.

Take 3 drops 3 times of diluted oil of oregano. If it is intolerable, causing too many reactions or die-off symptoms, start with 1 drop and gradually increase them.

You can also apply oregano oil to nail fungus and skin disorders at least twice daily. Be sure to use the 50/50 mixture of oil of oregano and oil. Be cautious about applying it to sensitive skin areas due to the heat it produces. It can often cause a rash or redness on the skin because it is pulling out toxins, which are a good thing. For dandruff add a few drops to your shampoo.

How to Treat Other Symptoms & Diseases

Anti-Inflammatory for Diseases Involving Joints and Tendons

An article published in Phyotherapy Research describes how oregano oil surpassed anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation and how it is nearly as powerful as morphine as a painkiller.

Oregano oil has the ability to penetrate the skin and reach as far as the synovial fluid in joints. It helps alleviate arthritis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sore muscles, sports injuries and even backaches.

Rub a few drops into the skin covering the affected area. You can apply it as many times a day as you like. Oregano oil has the ability to penetrate through the skin right into the synovial fluid of the joint where its anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties will provide relief. Taking it internally is also recommended.

Bacteria

Oregano oil also is a terrific natural antibiotic that works against bacteria. Lab tests have proven it is effective as one of the strongest antibiotics (Vancomycin) in killing staph, E. coli and other bacteria.

It does this without creating mutant strains of drug-resistant bacteria, and it has none of the debilitating side effects of pharmaceutical antibiotics. For those bedridden or in the hospital, oil of oregano is a defensive weapon against potentially deadly bacteria. It is easy to take and is effective against any known forms of pathogens.

Bites, stings

Oregano oil has the ability to neutralize and extract venom from insects, spiders and snake bites. If you are planning to enjoy the great outdoors take a bottle with you.

If you have an allergy to wasp or bee stings, timely topical and internal application of oregano oil could save you. Apply it to red, swollen bites to help them disappear faster.

Burns

For typical burns that are painful and blistered, oregano oil provides almost instant pain relief often no blister will develop if it is applied immediately. Mix 1-2 drops into 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil and gently apply it to the burn.

How to Treat Children

To administer oregano oil to children or babies rub the diluted mixture into their feet.

Ear infections

Ear infections are best treated by rubbing oil of oregano around the outside of the ear. It may need to be diluted more with oil when treating children. Do not put oil of oregano directly in the ear canal.

Parasites

Oregano oil has shown to be effective in killing many types of parasites, including giardia and pinworms, along with other nasty creatures than can inhabit our intestines. Mix 2-3 drops of oregano oil with 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil, taking it up to 10 times per day.

Respiratory Problems

Lung problems can be difficult to treat if the lungs become infected with a virus, bacteria or candida, or if you suffer from asthma or allergies. Oregano oil is highly volatile, which means the molecules become airborne easily, therefore it is great for treating the respiratory system.

For lung and respiratory problems, inhale the vapors directly from the bottle as often as necessary. Also take it internally by mixing 1-2 drops into 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil, at least 4 times a day. You can also put a drop or two on a tissue and put it by your pillow at night, so you will breath it in.

Scabies

Oregano oil is very effective against scabies. Apply it several times a day. Mix 2-3 drops of oregano oil with 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil and rub it well into each scabies spot. Continue treatment until the scabies are eradicated.

Skin Disorders

Adult acne, psoriasis and eczema are often candida related and may require topical treatment with oil of oregano. Mix 2-3 drops of oregano oil into 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil and apply it to sensitive skin. Do not apply oil of oregano full strength to broken skin or rashes.

Stomach problems

Throughout history, oregano has served as a cure for upset stomach caused by food poisoning, parasites, ulcers, bacterial and fungal infections. Take 3 to 7 drops with or after meals, mixed into 1-2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil. Food poisoning may require more aggressive doses. Oil of oregano can safely be taken 10 times a day or more, if needed, but only in small amounts each time.

Teeth and Gums

When you have a toothache, rub oregano oil around the infected tooth. Use the diluted mixture. It will kill infection and reduce pain. For diseased gums rub the oregano oil over the gums, and take it several times a day.

Mix one drop of oregano oil with about 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil and hold it under your tongue until the saliva gathers. You can also take a sip of water. Then swish it around in your mouth for 2 minutes, and swallow. Do this 3 or more times a day.

Place a drop of diluted oregano oil on your toothbrush when brushing. You will find that plaque does not build up on your teeth, and the health of your gums will improve dramatically.

Viral Attacks, Herpes, Hepatitis or Shingles

When you feel the onset of a cold, flu, herpes or shingles, you should immediately increase your dosage to 3 drops of diluted oregano oil every one to two hours to keep levels high while fighting an attack. You can also apply it on herpes or shingles.

Hepatitis and herpes are two viral infections that have responded well to treatment of oregano oil. Remember that taking oregano oil more often during the day is better than taking a lot all at once.

Oil of oregano brands vary greatly as to strength, which largely determines cost - the higher the content of oregano oil the higher the price. All brands listed below contain extra virgin olive oil.

Cause the extract is many times more powerful, extracts are always more powerful than the essential oil itself.

I made a 5x extract with salvia divinorum before with acetone, basically putting the power of 100 leaves into 20 leaves.

The Wild Oregano Oil Miracle
Article by Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, MD, MSc
http://www.thewolfeclinic.com/oregano.html

Oregano oil (Origanum vulgare) is well known in the Mediterranean world (Greece and Crete) for its ability to slow down food spoilage through its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-oxidant activity. The related herbs thyme and marjoram sold in most North American supermarkets, are labeled incorrectly as oregano and possess little of wild oregano's miraculous healing properties.


The Wild Oregano Oil Miracle


HOW IT WORKS

Isomeric phenols (primarily carvacrol) in oregano oil in dilutions as low as 1/50,000 destroys Candida albicans, the Aspergillus mold, Staphylococcus, Campylobacter, Klebsiella, E.coli, Giardia, Pseudomonas, and Proteus. Another phenol constituent, thymol, boosts the immune system. These compounds also act as free radical scavengers (shield against toxins) thus preventing further tissue damage while encouraging healing.

Oil of oregano is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic. It also has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and is an ideal product to use for people who suffer from CFS and/or fibromyalgia. This is not regular oregano, but a wild form (wild mountain oregano, vulgare species) of the spice, which has, until recently, not been available in Canada. Do not use a substitute or oregano from a grocery store because it will have no effect. oil of oregano natural herbal supplement offers a variety of remedies

Many of us have enjoyed oregano with our foods at one point or another. Nevertheless, how much more would you enjoy it if you realized just how beneficial oregano could be to your health? You would probably sprinkle it on more than just your pizza and spaghetti, right?

Oregano is one of the most diverse health aids available. Unfortunately, however, most of the oregano that consumers are familiar with contains only trace quantities of the actual species of the plant, or in some cases, none at all.


Meanwhile, researchers have uncovered numerous benefits to using oregano and extracted oil of oregano. However, buyer beware. These significant health benefits are unattainable if the oregano is not the true substance.

Nevertheless, true oil of oregano offers many exciting remedies to a variety of ailments. In "Herbal Renaissance", Steven Foster credits oregano as having "been employed to treat indigestion, diarrhea, nervous tension, insect bites, toothache, earache, rheumatism, and coughs due to whooping cough and bronchitis (primarily for it's antispasmodic effects)."

The ancient Greeks were among the first to take advantage of oregano's medicinal qualities. The Greeks termed the spice oreganos, meaning "delight of the mountains".

Although there are a wide variety of plants that are confused with oregano (including marjoram, thyme, and sage) true oregano grows wild in Mediterranean regions such as Greece. The wild oregano is the source of surprisingly potent oil of oregano.

In "The Cure is in the Cupboard", Cass Ingram, D.O., has written a book that is dedicated to unveiling the health benefits of oregano and oil of oregano. He notes that "wild oregano is a veritable natural mineral treasure-house, containing a density of minerals that would rival virtually any food".

The wild oregano is rich in a long list of minerals that includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, boron, and manganese. Vitamins C and A (beta carotene) and niacin also are contained in oregano. Judging from its mineral content alone, it is not hard to figure out why oregano is such a valuable commodity. Consider some of oregano's other useful purposes and it becomes even more obvious.

"Oregano is one of Nature's finest preservatives", states Ingram in another book, "Supermarket Remedies". The author suggests that if oregano is used with foods such as meat, eggs, milk, or salad, you "will greatly halt the growth of microbes and, thus, reduce the risk for food poisoning."

However, Ingram adds that these two phenols work "synergistically" and that is the reason oil of oregano packs a double punch in antiseptic power and explains why it is "infinitely more potent than commercial phenol in microbial killing power."

All of this helps make oregano oil a significant factor in treating internal and external fungi including athlete's foot. Skin conditions such a psoriasis and eczema can be improved with the treatment as well. Ingram explains the astonishing discovery that "oil of oregano outright destroys all variety of fungi and yeasts, regardless of where they reside."

In addition to fighting various fungi, oil of oregano is useful against bacteria and parasites. As Ingram asserts, "oil of oregano's antiseptic powers are immense . . . it inhibits the growth of the majority of bacteria, something that prescription antibiotics fail to accomplish." In the case of parasites, oil of oregano has had success neutralizing worms, amoeba, and protozoan.

Additional uses for oregano and oil of oregano are multi-dimensional. It has been found helpful in combating diarrhea, intestinal gas, and digestive problems, as well as sore throat and breathing difficulties. Oil of oregano can be immediately help against bee stings and many venomous bites until medical attention can be reached. Oil of oregano has even been suggested as a treatment for dandruff, diaper rash, and other skin disorders.

The benefits of oregano has gone largely unnoticed and under publicized for far too long. As Ingram notes, oregano is "one of the world's finest natural medicines, that is if it's true oregano."

So while oregano may hold the answer for a number of your health questions, be sure that it is in fact the real thing. Remember, these remedies are only attributed to genuine oregano and oil of oregano. Nonetheless, their values are much too important to overlook. Oregano may just be the thing you are searching for, or maybe did not realize was available.

There is an entheogen site with a whole thread devoted to botanical antibiotics, this is a quote about oil of oregano...

Quote
In my experience, Oil of oregano can directly replace many Rx anti-biotics. I don't recommend anyone do this, but it has been my experience. 1 gallon of oil of oregano has the antiseptic power to sterilize 4,000 gallons of grey water. Potent stuff. I have used it for all sorts of illness, bacterial, fungal, viral, and have had excellent results. A good mix is oil of oregano either in pills or 8 drops of the oil, mixed with a strong garlic extract, a strong licorice extract, and a good ginger extract. As a side note, the oregano oil MUST come from wild oregano from the mediteranian region and have a verified carvacol content of 75-90%.

This guy is super knowledgable on these topics, and he is a very good vendor too.

Eating regular oregano is not as potent as the oil essence.

It's like weed versus Hashish or a resin ball. The Hashish and resin ball is much more concentrated.

A question here...

From the first post and on, are we talking about oil (like you would buy olive oil in a bottle) or essential oil (the concentrate)?

From the first post and on, are we talking about oil (like you would buy olive oil in a bottle) or essential oil (the concentrate)?

 ???

The Oil of Oregano typically comes in a capsule that melts away in the stomach. The oil is very very strong. If you use to much it can irritate you mucus glands in your mouth. The bottles of the stuff usually are in 1-4 oz.  The oil is thick and is a golden orange color.

Eat Oregano.  Or drink Oregano.  I make a multi-herb herbal tea.

Just ordinary oregano does not have the same properties as oil of oregano.

Excerpt from my above post:

Oregano oil (Origanum vulgare) is well known in the Mediterranean world (Greece and Crete) for its ability to slow down food spoilage through its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-oxidant activity. The related herbs thyme and marjoram sold in most North American supermarkets, are labeled incorrectly as oregano and possess little of wild oregano's miraculous healing properties.

This actually works. Very helpful. Recently had a sinus infection. Just two drops under the tongue and I could feel the congestion/inflammation clearing within 60 seconds. Definitely a must-have in the medicine cabinet.
