Oregano Essential Oil – What To Do With It?

Posted by terrepruitt on November 10, 2015

So recently I bought some oregano essential oil and I have yet to use it.  I don’t even remember why I bought it, I mean I would have bought it with a specific purpose in mind, but then by the time I got it I forgot.  Or . . . what could have happened is I purchased it with a specific purpose in mind thinking I needed oregano essential oil for that, but when I went to re-check on what I needed for that purpose I didn’t need oregano oil.  So now I have oil and I am not sure what to use it for.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, PiYo, Nia TechniqueI am thinking it is one of the essential oils used to boost the immune system.  I probably bought it for that because we were entering cold season and I thought it might give us some extra fighting power.  Or maybe I thought to buy it when we were in the throes of our fungus situation.  Perhaps I wanted to use it to help with that.  Or perhaps I wanted to use it to help with sinuses, as in allergies.  I honestly can’t remember.

The bottle says:

“Oregano is often referred to as nature’s cure-all.  It is known to help get rid of a sickness quickly by fighting the root cause when diffused.  It can ease sore throats, congestion, bronchitis and muscles aches.  Add to a carrier oil at max dilution of 1% and apply directly to your abdomen to help with digestion.”

I don’t cook with oregano because I think it is one of those flavors I am not particularly fond of.

This essential oil smells smokey.  I actually like the way it smells.  But I am still not sure what I bought it for.

On one of my other essential oil posts, Crystal Breath,  I had a friend comment about her use of oregano oil, she said, “I take Oregano oil a couple of different ways. The first way is with 2 (and only 2) drops YLEO Oregano oil in a tablespoon of raw honey. The other way is not Young Living but Gaia Oregano oil tincture. 30 drops in an inch of water (much more palatable that way BTW)!!!”

Do you use oregano oil?  What do you use your essential oregano oil for?  How do you use it?

    Hey Terre, think of you often. Why not try to make your own throat logenzes-with organic items and instead of sugar use the stuff that is good for your teeth-forgot how to pronouce or spell it but it begins with an X and they use it in gum. Cheryl

    • Xylitol?

      Hilarious. I have NEVER thought about making my own cough drops. That is an interesting idea. Although I might use honey because it actually has some nutrients and health benefits. I doubt that I would make oregano ones though, that just doesn’t sound good to me. Perhaps lemon-honey? Ha, ha, ha. Interesting. I just MIGHT look into it. I could make them large enough to last through the night. That would be awesome.


      P.S. I presently have TWO Nia classes that start at 10:15 am . . . perhaps that is a better time for you? 🙂
