You might only think of oregano as something you put in your spaghetti sauce or other Italian foods, but oregano is a very powerful herb that has unique and multiple healing properties. Oregano has more than eight times the antioxidants of apples and three times as much as the often touted blueberries. The more antioxidants you put into your body, the better, as antioxidants improve our immune system and fight against free radicals, the little agents of premature aging and disease. This makes oregano and oregano oil one of the most powerful plant based oils in the world.

Oregano has a long history. The Greeks named it oregano, which means “joy of the mountains.” You know anything with a name like that has got to be some good stuff! The Greeks were also the first to use oregano oil for medicinal purposes and Hippocrates often used it in his medical practice.

When searching for oregano oil, you should be aware that not all types of oregano oil are created equal. There are two kinds, Mediterranean oregano and Mexican oregano. Mexican oregano is not as strong and not as sweet. Most people prefer Mediterranean oregano oil, most of which is grown in Spain. Also be sure that the carvacrol concentration of your oil is a minimum of 70 percent. Carvacrol is the active ingredient in oregano oil so you want to be sure you are getting the most of what you are paying for.

Almost everyone would be willing to take just about anything if we thought it would keep us healthy, free from diseases, flu viruses, and other types of illnesses. There are plenty of internet sites selling all kinds of “cure all’s” but oregano oil just might be the wave of the future when it comes to a one size fits all cure all. Take a look at all the benefits and the healing power of oregano oil.
