Oregano

Oregano is everyone's favorite Italian "go to" herb for sauces and just about every Italian dish but few know of it has the following medicinal properties: Anti-bacterial; Anti-oxidant; Anti-cancer; Anti-spasmodic; anti-viral; aromatic; carminative; diaphoretic; emmenagogue; nervine; rubeficient, stimulant.

 

Oregano oil is my "go to" any time a antibiotic is needed. I dilute it using a 1:5 blend (one part oregano oil to 5 parts olive oil). I use capsules to administer the blend. If I get a sinus infection or the flu, I take a capsule three times a day with a cup of Elder flowers, Chamomile & Peppermint tea (with a pinch of Yarrow). I am usually back to normal within a day or two. My kids love and hate it at the same time because it ensures they don't get many sick days.

*Allergy Alert* Oregano is in the Mint family
