A multifaceted weapon to have in your natural health arsenal, oil of oregano is an anti-microbial, an anti-inflammatory, a pain killer, and an antioxidant. An all-in-one!
More popular uses for oregano oil include: acne, athlete's foot & nail fungus, bug bites, burns, and headaches. Seasonally, we can all say that the cold and flu are the more cumbersome and frustrating around this time of the year. While this didn't quite make the top five list, oil of oregano is sure common here too.
Dr. Krista Moyer recommends, "Oil of oregano - great for colds - always start treatment at the first sign of symptoms. You can take Oil of Oregano orally, directly into the mouth - but it may burn. I find I always do it direct, but you can also add it to a small amount of unsweetened juice, water, or even a carrier oil (eg. coconut or olive oil, say 1 teaspoon or less). Start small- 1-3 drops - especially if you're not familiar with the strength of Oil of Oregano. Following that you can take 3-6 drops. Begin to take it at the first sign of a cold and dose every 2-4 hours, as needed."
