Oregano essential oil is one of the most popular essential oils during the winter months for its immune boosting benefits and cleansing properties.

oregano 1When used aromatically, Oregano essential oil can help cleanse the air, boost immunity, and can give a feeling of security. Make sure to use caution when applying Oregano topically, as it is very caustic  (hot) and can cause skin irritation if not diluted. To avoid skin irritation , dilute 1 drop essential oil to 3 drops carrier oil.

  1. My husband has over 20 warts on the bottom of his feet. We had taken him to the foot doctor to get them taken care of. They injected each wart with an antivirus stuff that was supposed to get rid of them quicky. . but it didn’t. So we started putting oregano on the bottom of his feet about 3 times a day and after a month, they are all gone! No sign of the warts on his feet (I might add, that he has had for over 5 years with no success in the past to get rid of them)

  2. How many drops of oregano do u put on the bottom of your feet a day ? And what part of the foot is the best place to put the drops , and should u delote it with an other oil ,our just strait out of the bottle . Thanks Rick.

  3. I have had a scalp issue that has been ongoing for 3 years, I started using oregano straight from the bottle on it and it’s in remission. My dermatologist said that if it’s working well, to continue use, because it is not harmful and that he approves of using oils over other methods he would prescribe. A friend uses oregano with olive oil as a carrier with 1 drop oil to 3 tbl spoons olive oil to remove hard, dark spots she gets on her arms.

  4. I have read that Oregano can be hard on your liver & Kidneys, and that i should only use it for a week at a time. Do you have any info on that?
    Thank you,
