Need to feel a little revival or want some extra strength to push yourself over the hump day and through to the rest of the week? Why not reach for some “Joy to the Mountain”. Oregano actually means joy to the mountain in Greek! It’s a terrific name for this oil because of the amazing properties that it has!
Oregano is by far one of the strongest antiseptics known to man! When using oregano, a small amount goes a LONG way! Oregano is…
“going the distance, it’s going for speed, it can act alone (act alone), Act alone for a lot of things you need. “
Lab tests have been shown that oregano actually eliminated a wide variety of pathogens such as bacteria, yeast, fungi, parasites and viruses quickly. Some of the top properties of oregano are carvacrol and thymol, these two compounds give oregano the ability to kill micros like a Bruce Lee’s Fist of Fury! This is definitely a hot oil and needs to be used with cation, but this baby is definitely an oil you will want to have on hand when you feel like your body is acting like a little caterpillar and you want it to feel more like a butterfly!

Oil of oregano is one of my all-time favorite smells and it also packs a punch when it comes to it’s health benefits.
Derived from the oregano plant by steam distillation, oil of oregano is so powerful that it must be diluted for safe use.
Once diluted, it can be added to a diffuser or vaporizer to clear up nasal passages. It’s also effective at providing temporary sore throat relief when added sparingly to juice or water for gargling. Not to mention, when added to a carrier oil (like coconut or almond oil), it may provide relief for skin conditions including skin abrasions, muscle aches, temporary relief of joint pain and even itchy or flakey scalp. (Just be careful not to apply it to broken or sensitive skin as it can be irritating.)
This specific essential oil is extremely powerful and a small bottle should outlast all of your other essential oils.
In fact, it is so strong that you’re most likely to find it already diluted versus concentrated. (You can purchase the dōTERRA® Touch roller bottle of oregano for a prediluted ready to go application).
So if you want to ensure that your body is fighting off the nastyness and that you are ready to keep being on the go, check out my doterra page for more informatoion.
Should you have any questions about how to use it or how strong it really is, please feel free to email me.
P.S. Oil of oregano is also a natural insect repellant due to the compound Carvacrol. It makes a great candle ingredient if you do not like the smell of citronella!
