Oregano is a potent and powerful essential oil that has been used for centuries in traditional health practices and cuisines. Used both internally and externally, Oregano oil has a variety of influential uses and benefits. Oregano essential oil is a powerful cleaning and purifying agent and can be used as a quick way to clean surfaces. It can also be applied topically to the skin. Because Oregano is rich with carvacoal and thymol, which are chemical components from the phenols group, the oil should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil before use on skin. Additionally, caution should also be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano. Aromatically, Oregano oil emits a sharp, herbaceous scent. Oregano oil can also be taken internally by adding one drop of Oregano oil to four fluid ounces of liquid. It is a great source for adding flavor to food and can be used in place of dried oregano. Oregano used internally can also help support healthy digestion and respiratory function, as well as a healthy immune system.*
