Oil of Oregano Benefits
Oil of Oregano is used to treat fungus infections and candida symptoms. It is used as a natural antibiotic. It's touted as one of the best natural antihistamines as well.
Steven Foster, expert on medicinal plants and herbs, and author of numerous books on the subject credits Oil of Oregano in the treatment of indigestion, diarrhea, nervous tension, insect bites, toothache, earache, rheumatism, coughs and bronchitis in his book entitled Herbal Renaissance (Gibbs Smith Publisher, 1993, originally printed under the title Herbal Bounty in 1984).
Herbs are natural, but they can still be very strong, especially in extract form, such as in a product like Oil of Oregano. Start with small doses when taking internally (3 drops in an ounce of water 2 x daily). You will want more water to "chase it", this oil has a very strong, spicy-pungent flavor. I recommend reading up on the subject to make sure you have a good plan before increasing your dosage and before taking it for more than 5 days in a row.
Difference between Oil of Oregano and Oregano Essential Oil:
Please note that there is a product called Oil of Oregano (which has already been diluted in a carrier oil) and there is Oregano Essential Oil, which can be used for aromatherapy treatments as well as diluted in a carrier oil for using in the ways Oil of Oregano is used.
