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