Oil of Oregano
Oil of oregano is one of my all-time favorite smells and it also packs a punch when it comes to its health benefits.
Derived from the oregano plant by steam distillation, oil of oregano is so powerful that it must be DILUTED for safe use.
Once diluted, it can be added to a diffuser or vaporizer to clear up nasal passages. It’s also effective at providing temporary sore throat relief when added sparingly to juice or water for gargling. Not to mention, when added to a carrier oil (like coconut or almond oil), it may provide relief for skin conditions including skin abrasions, muscle aches, temporary relief of joint pain and even itchy or flakey scalp. (Just be careful not to apply it to broken or sensitive skin as it can be irritating.)
There really are a whole host of benefits with Oregano so if you decide to incorporate this into your life, please let me know and I will offer advice.
