The Essential Oil of Oregano is extracted through steam distillation of fresh oregano leaves, which bear the scientific name Oreganum Vulgare. Oregano oil can loosen up or help eliminate the uncomfortable buildups of mucus and phlegm in the respiratory tracts and sinuses. Oregano essential oil provides protection against viral infections. This means that it strengthens your immunity against colds, mumps, measles, pox and other problems created by viruses.
Caution: Oregano is a hot oil and may irritate the skin. Always dilute before using.
