Why Oregano Essential Oil is One of the Most Powerful Natural Antibiotics Known to Science

Oregano oil really is the ultimate antibiotic. It is a powerful herb blessed with unique healing properties. Oregano actually has eight times more antioxidants than apples and three times as much as blueberries!

Antioxidants are the the body’s natural defense catalyst and needed to protect our body against free radical damage. They help boost the immune-system naturally. 

Oregano Oil is the one of the most potent plant oils in the world!
The Ancient Greeks stumbled upon the power of oregano oil and is literally translated as ‘joy of the mountains’. The Greeks first used the oil for medicinal purposes. They discovered it has incredible health benefits like being powerful antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal agent and also as a remedy for pain, and inflammation.  

Hippocrates used this oil as his main antiseptic and antibacterial lotion. 

The leaves of the plant were traditionally used to treat illnesses related to the respiratory and digestive systems.

Oregano Oil Benefits

Oregano Essential Oil  is a mineral density powerhouse.  It contains calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, boron, manganese, vitamins C, A (beta-carotene), Niacin.
Oregano oil contains four main groups of chemicals which are active healing agents.

Phenols including carvacrol and thymol. They act as antiseptics and antioxidants. Terpenes including pinene and terpinene. They possess antiseptic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. Linalool and bonreol are two long-chain alcohols found in oregano oil. They exhibit antiviral and antiseptic properties. 

Esters include linalyl acetate and geranyl acetate. They exhibit antifungal properties. Although all these compounds possess healing properties, the most significant  primary compound found in oregano oil is carvacrol.

Scientific research has proved carvacrol to be one of the most effective antibiotics known to science.

Not All Oregano Oil is Created Equal

Wild, Mediteranean Oregano needs to be either of origanum vulgare kind, or Thymus capitatus, which mostly grows in Spain – It is very important to make sure the Oil of Oregano is derived  from these two kinds. It also has to have the carvacrol concentration of 70% or more. 

Most importantly, oregano essential oil  does not create harmful strains in the body  and does not have side effects the pharmaceutical antibiotics do. Moreover, it is effective against a dangerous and even deadly bacteria, but does not produce biological changes in the body.  

Oregano essential oil caresses the body and doesn’t take away any of its nutrients like conventional antibiotics do. The stats don’t lie – people in the Mediterranean live longer than the rest of the world. It could well be in part because of the oregano and oregano oil that is added to most Mediterranean cuisine!
