Did you know that the that oregano oil is the most powerful natural antibiotic known to science.
This is because of the fact that is has extremely potent healing properties and contains three times more antioxidants than blueberries, which protect against free radical damage.
According to Dr.Mercola:
“Oregano oil is derived from the leaves and flowers of oregano (Origanum vulgare), a hardy perennial herb, and a member of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. It’s native to Europe, Asia and North Africa, although it grows in many areas around the world.
The plant grows up to 50 centimeters high, with purple leaves that are 2 to 3 centimeters long. The ancient Greeks and Romans have a profound appreciation for oregano, using it for various medicinal purposes. In fact, its name comes from the Greek words “oros” and “ganos,” which are words for mountain and joy — oregano literally means “joy of the mountain.””
It contains plenty of carvacrol, a compound that possess powerful antibacterial properties against many strains of bacteria. It inhibits their replication by destroying their cell membranes.
Additionally, even more important is the fact that this oil destroys the dangerous bacteria only and does not affect the beneficial probiotic bacteria.
Oregano essential oil is full of minerals and vitamins. Some of them are manganese, potassium, magnesium, zinc, calcium, iron, vitamins C, A (beta-carotene), Niacin, copper, and boron.
It is consisted of four groups of chemical. These groups are active healing agents, and act as antioxidants and antiseptics. They also have powerful anesthetic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. Some of them are Linalool and borneol, and linalyl acetate and geranyl acetate.
Another important thing to remember is, when choosing your oregano essential oil, make sure it has been steam-distilled, and it contains between 50% and 85% carvacrol, and is 100% pure, raw, unprocessed.
You should always dilute it with a carrier oil and take it orally for only 7-10 days at a time.
