Oregano is well-known for its culinary applications, but it also produces one of the most powerful essential oils.
Oregano essential oil contains a high concentration of carvacol and thymol, both of which have cleansing properties. As a result, it is one of the best household cleansing agents known to the essential oil world.
Oregano oil is also rich in antioxidants and can be taken internally to support a healthy immune system, digestion, and respiratory function. It can also be used to prepare and consume culinary dishes.
Because of the main constituents of oregano essential oil, use caution when diffusing or inhaling – only one to two drops are required. Oregano essential oil should always be diluted before applying topically.
