Karen's Botanicals Oregano Compound Oil is an all natural compound that is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and has antiseptic properties all in one formula.
The active constituents of the herb oregano (Origanum vulgare), such as carvacrol, are highly potent antiseptics. Even a tiny amount of oregano essential oil quickly and naturally eliminates a wide variety of pathogens such as bacteria, yeast, fungi, parasites and viruses. Recent studies suggest that it is useful during periods of colds and influenza and for a wide variety of fungal, parasitic, and viral infections.
This product is a blend of organic sunflower and olive oils infused with fresh oregano flowers and leaves, and 10% oregano essential oil. This dilution of the essential oil makes it safer than pure essential oil and just as and effective.
Please note that this oregano oil is ALREADY diluted with certified organic olive and sunflower oils. It is NOT a pure essential oil. This dilution makes it a safer product than the pure oregano essential oil, and makes it ready to use immediately.
Historically, Greek physicians used oregano essential oil for wounds, headaches, and venomous bites and even hemlock poisoning. It wasn't long before its medicinal benefits were used to treat lung conditions, bronchitis, sinusitis, and cold symptoms including cough. During the seventeenth century, it was heralded throughout Great Britain as an effective remedy for head colds. It was used by physicians to induce menstruation as early as the nineteenth century. The many benefits of oregano essential oil has also captured the interest of many contemporary researchers.
Oregano oil has antiviral, antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti parasitic, and antiseptic properties. For external use, oregano oil is valued as a strong analgesic and antirheumatic agent. The oil is also believed to reduce the discomfort associated with insect bites. Its powerful anti-microbial properties are said to assist in the prevention of infections and to treat skin fungi such as athlete's foot. It has also been used to eliminate lice infestations and intestinal worms.
Natural and organic, Karen's Botanicals infused oils can be used for massage, general skin care, a healing bath oil, or for aromatherapy.
