Oil of Oregano: Timeless Medicine

Updated on July 8, 2010

A Lovely Decoration, and Medicine

Decoration, Seasoning, and Germicide.

A plant of many uses.

This lovely plant makes a great addition to a decorative garden. It spices up a salad with it's fresh leaves. It seasons home-made pasta sauce as well. But what many people don't know is that it can be used as powerful medicine. It kills many germs and parasites, as well as many bacteria, fungus (including athlete's foot) and possibly viruses, though not proven.

All Aesthetics Aside

Suppose you just took a trip to Mexico, and you were not immune to the microbes that live in the water there, you could get rid of that nasty "jiggle gut" known as "Montezuma's Revenge" with just one bottle of medicine that costs around 14 bucks, would you take it? I know i would, and in fact I have. This plant's essential oil can be used to cure that, or at least aid the immune system in fighting off the nasty little buggers that cause misery. Sure you're breath will smell like an Italian restaurant that went crazy with the season shaker, but like I say about garlic, I'd rather stink like an Italian restaurant than stink up the bathroom with dysentery. My wife thanked me when I chose the lesser of two evils.

How to Use It

Basically, you just use the capsules for intestinal problems. The coating on them will keep it from dissolving until it reaches the gut. parasites, intestinal flu, and the like would be candidates for that.

For body flu, with fever but no intestinal problems, the liquid oil if best. Take the pure extract under the tongue. If you just can't stand the taste which is quite harsh, you can mix it with olive oil about a teaspoon per drop and drink it. Good stuff!

For skin rashes, and lesions, mix some pure oil with olive oil like above and rub it right on there.

For all of these treatments, three times a day is good for a couple weeks. It get broken p in the body fairly quickly. Two weeks is good because you want to let your body's own defence take over and fight for itself. Otherwise the next time you encounter that same microbe, you'll get just as sick.

If you like to drink liquor, mix it with some gin and bitters. You can have a ball while you unleash this germ killer on some bad little germs.
