Oregano is a very powerful oil that will dramatically reduce symptoms of upper respiratory illness. Do you have coughs or a cold, add this to your book of tricks for feeling better. Oregano has both antiviral and antimicrobial characteristics.
Many people recommend using a few drops under the tongue but I hesitate to use this unless I am absolutely sure of the quality of the essential oil. Many claims are made as to quality so ensure if you decide to use it, it is a top-grade, pure, ingestible form of the oil.
The following recipe can be used with a carrier oil for massage or without the carrier oil for a diffuser.
2 drops of Oregano Essential Oil
2 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
