Derived from that delicious herb we love to sprinkle atop pastas and poultry dishes, Oregano Essential Oil is a potent, benefit-rich liquid with a wealth of antiseptic properties. Said to aid with parasites, viruses, bacteria and fungus, it’s believed to assist with everything from upset stomach and indigestion to stiff joints, coughing and menstrual cramps. When inhaled, it’s even known to relieve an array of respiratory conditions.
With natural sedative properties, Oregano Essential Oil can also help to calm the nerves, ease restlessness and relax the muscles. Many even swear by it as an additive in soaps, colognes and perfumes, due to its distinct fragrance. So, while this may not be a great topping for an Italian feast, this is one oil that you’ll certainly want to keep around the house.
