Origanum vulgare- Greece
Protective & strengthening
This oil is very much like the herb, strong and pungent and very effective.
Physically, it is great for the respiratory system and the immune system. It is also a very strong antibacterial oil, so good for diffusing when people are ill and for cleaning around the house. It is a very warming oil which makes it good for sore muscles and joint aches and pains. Oregano is a useful oil for parasitic infections and fungal infections.
It blends well with other native oils, citrus oils, lavender, marjoram, peppermint, rosemary & thyme.
It is steam distilled from the leaves.
It will keep for around 5 years if stored with lid tightly closed in a cool, dark area.
*Do not use this oil with children, pregnant women or the elderly. It is also not recommended for use on sensitive skins. Maximum dilution for healthy skins is 1.1%. It is also not recommended for long term use due to large content of phenols.
