Oregano Essential Oil
Oregano essential oil comes from the popular oregano plant, which is a member of the mint family and is native to areas of western Asia and the Mediterranean. Its warm, herbaceous qualities have made the plant a popular ingredient in Mediteranian cuisine, but there are many Oregano oil uses in topical and aromatic applications as well.
Oregano essential oil is an easy way to flavour savoury dishes. Its distinctive, pungent taste makes it an indispensable addition to Mediterranean and Mexican cuisines, though it can be used in a variety of cuisines and recipes.
Oregano Oil may be an effective treatment against dangerous, and sometimes drug-resistant bacteria, a Georgetown researcher has found. Two different studies have shown that Oregano Oil appears to reduce infection as effectively as traditional antibiotics.
Harry G. Preuss, MD, MACN, CNS, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics, and his research team, “tested Oregano Oil on Staphylococcus bacteria, which is responsible for a variety of severe infections and is becoming increasingly resistant to many antibiotics. They combined Oregano Oil with the bacteria in a test tube, and compared Oregano Oil’s effects to those of standard antibiotics Streptomycin, Penicillin and Vancomycin. The Oregano Oil at relatively low doses was found to inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus bacteria in the test tubes as effectively as the standard antibiotics did.”
