Oregano oil is different from the oregano typically found growing in a garden or found in the spice section at the grocery store. Therapeutic grade or medicinal oregano is grown in various locations around the world, with the highest grades grown in the Mediterranean. It takes about 200 pounds of this herb to produce 2 pounds of oil, and is therefore difficult and expensive to produce.
Oregano oil is the ultimate antibiotic. Oregano is a powerful herb with unique healing properties. Did you know that oregano has eight times more antioxidants than apples and three times as much as blueberries? Antioxidants are needed to protect our body against free radical damage. They boost the immune-system naturally. Oregano Oil is the most potent plant oil in the world! The distribution of oregano oil started in Ancient Greece. In Greek the word oregano is translated as joy of the mountains. The Greeks were first to use oil for medicinal purposes, such as a powerful antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal agent and also as a remedy for pain, and inflammation. It was the main antibacterial tool used by Hippocrates. Oregano leaves were traditionally used to treat illnesses related to the respiratory and digestive systems.
