Background Information on Oregano Essential Oil 

Oregano is native to warm temperatures in western and southwestern Eurasia and the Mediterranean region. Oregano was used in ancient Greece to treat bacterial infection on wounds as well as a protective layer on skin. The word original comes from a Greek word “oreganos” meaning “joy of the mountain”. Oregano is a robust perennial herb and is a member of the mint family. However, many people say that oregano is very similar to thyme. Oregano is native to Europe, but can easily grow in full sun and usually later in the warm season.

The botanical name for oregano is Oreganum vulgare. The fresh leaves and flowers of the plant are steam distilled to extract all of the wonderful oils. Oregano oil is composed of Thymol, a natural fungicide. Caravcrol and Terpenes, which are used to fight bacteria. Rosmarnic acid a promising antioxidant that can help treat allergies and related asthma. Naringin an antioxidant that help to slow the growth of cancer cells. Lastly, Beta-caryophyllin (E-BCP) a strong anti-inflammatory.*
