10 Uses for Organic Oregano Oil

by Dr. Edward Group DC, NP, DACBN, DCBCN, DABFM Published on , Last Updated on November 5, 2015

The Health Benefits and uses of oregano oil include protection against harmful organisms, fighting infection, digestion aid, and allergy support.

Hands down, oregano oil is one of the best natural supplements you can get. It’s produced from the perennial herb oregano and loaded with free-radical-crushing antioxidants. A growing body of research has shown that oregano oil offers many positive health benefits and is one of the most potent natural remedies in existence. In particular, there has been significant evaluation of its effects against harmful organisms; investigations even been made by major pharmaceutical companies. Let’s take a look at why there’s so much interest in oregano oil and its 10 best uses.

What are the Top 10 Uses for Oregano Oil?

1. Fights Infection

There’s a lot of evidence to show that oregano oil is a powerful tool against the harmful organisms that lead to infections. One study straight from the United States Department of Agriculture reported that oregano oil has such a strong action against germs that it could easily fight Salmonella and E. coli.

These findings were echoed by researchers the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at Georgetown University Medical Center:

    “New, safe agents are needed to … overcome harmful organism infections. Based on our previous experience and that of others, we postulated that herbal essential oils, such as those of origanum (oregano oil)…offer such possibilities.”

2. Protection Against Harmful Organisms

If you’ve consumed undercooked meat or impure water, or countless other risky actions, harmful organisms are likely to be residing inside of your body. Thankfully, oregano oil has been shown to be extremely useful for helping to get rid of these unwanted invaders. One study examined the relationship between oregano oil and harmful organisms and found that taking 600 mg of oregano oil daily prompted a complete disappearance of harmful organisms in the body.

3. Source of Essential Nutrients

It’s not exactly a multivitamin but there’s no denying that oregano oil is loaded with vital nutrients like magnesium and zinc and vitamins C and E. It’s sufficiently high in iron, calcium, potassium copper, manganese, and niacin. As a secondary approach, oregano oil might help bridge the gap that so many people have between their nutritional intake and requirements.

4. Digestive Aid

I’ve said it a million times, health begins in the gut! Good digestion is absolutely required to experience good health. While I recommend using an oxygen-based colon cleanser periodically to clean out your digestive tract, stopping the build up in the first place also needs to be part of the plan, and oregano oil can help. Oregano oil is known to stimulate the flow of bile into the digestive organs, enhancing the digestive process.

5. Menstrual Aid

Irregular, uncomfortable periods and negative menopause effects are a big problem for many women; one of the best natural remedies is oregano oil. It may actually help support regular menstruation and protect against negative menopause experiences. For women, this is a substantial bonus to the already lengthy list of uses and effects of oregano oil.

6. Supports Graceful Aging

Perhaps the hottest health trend of the past few years is the science of combatting aging. It’s important to understand that aging is largely the effect of oxidation and free radicals, which is why antioxidants are so effective. Oregano oil offers a huge amount of antioxidants that can aid in the defense against these aging-accelerators.

7. Allergy Support

If you suffer from allergies and environmental sensitivities, the soothing properties of oregano oil are likely to be highly appealing. Oregano oil can produce sedating effect on the hypersensitivity of allergies, which ultimately encourages relief. For those wishing to avoid harsh medications and the accompanying side effects, oregano oil may be a natural alternative for curtailing the undesirable effects associated with environmental sensitivities.

8. Weight Loss

In addition to its reputation as a natural immune booster, oregano oil also packs a punch against unwanted body fat. Its main active ingredient, carvacrol, is thought to modulate genes and reduce irritation in white adipose tissue. In one study, when fed a high fat diet, mice not given carvacrol quickly became obese. In contrast, mice given carvacrol gained significantly less weight and even had lower levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in their blood.

9. Eases Discomfort

Aches and stiffness can wreak havoc and really impact quality of life. Many people use oil of oregano topically and say that it feels like it goes deep inside their skin to relieve soreness and muscle discomfort. Simply create a 50/50 mixture of organic oregano oil and organic olive oil and apply topically to the affected area for relief. If you suffer from sore muscles, sports injuries, and backaches, this is one benefit you’ll appreciate.

10. Combats the Cold

Oregano oil isn’t a cure for the cold but it can add a layer to your immune system. Many people claim that when they start to feel under the weather they place 3-6 drops into an empty capsule and take 2-3 times daily before meals. A 5-10 day regiment has been reported as doing wonders.

Supplementing with Oregano

Oregano oil is an absolute must-have item for any medicine cabinet or emergency kit. The array of benefits it offers makes it one of the best all-around supplements you can get. Remember, as with any health product, quality matters tremendously.

Choosing the Proper Organic Oregano Oil Product

Dr. Edward F. Group’s Recommendation:


When searching for an oregano oil product, make sure to look for one that is organic, in liquid form, has an organic extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil base and has at least 80% carvacrol content. Carvacrol is the main ingredient in oregano oil.

I formulated a product that has all of this and added organic peppermint oil (added resistant to fungus) and cayenne pepper (which is toxic to harmful organisms) to my Oregano Oil Blend.

Recommended Instructions: Shake bottle well. Place 6 drops in a vegetarian capsule. Take at beginning of meal, 2-3 times daily or as recommended by your physician. Do not consume directly as a liquid.

Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Consult your healthcare provider before taking if pregnant or nursing, or for any additional concerns. Do not expose to eyes.

    Hello! For me, oregano oil helped me to clean my skin. I
    had acne and nothing helped me but oregano oil. I saw the results after 3-4 month. I take 4 drops, under the tongue every single day. The taste is horrible but the results are amazing. I also put 2 drops on my tooth brush every time and the blood spots disappeared when I brush my teeth and also no bad breath. I also feel very good overall. To be honest, I cannot imagine I will stop to take oregano oil ever. I have 48 years old but everybody complements me that I lie about my age and I am much younger. I believe the oregano oil helps in this direction as well. J

    Hello, I have a very sensitive stomach that has a hard time with acidity. Do you think the cayenne added to the oregano formula could be hard on my stomach and make it feel uncomfortable or sour?

  • http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/ Global Healing Center

    Hi Cynthia, We haven’t gotten that complaint specifically but if you have that concern you could try taking it with a good amount of water or not an empty stomach.

    I use oregano oil on a tooth brush to help prevent gum disease. And when I have had an abcess, brushing with it gets rid of it and any pain. In addition, I use it for strep throat. Works wonders. Plus, a co-worker of my husband recently was able to improve his health through the use of Oregano Oil. He had severe jaundice (I think from hepatitis) and was not given long to live. After daily use for six weeks, his blood work results came back normal, his color is back to normal, and his appetite has increased.

    The product we sell comes with empty vegetarian capsules. You add a few drops and swallow without irritation. Otherwise, yes, the capsaicin can be hot.

    My mother had been diagnosed of HEPATITIS B disease 3 years ago. She had been using the interferon therapy (Peg-interferon + Ribavirin) which adversely affected her hemoglobin level as she is also thalassemic (a side effect of using the interferon therapy). Luckily after stopping the treatment.

    I read a book by HEALTH MED LAB about natural cures and he recommends these two things as a natural cure for HEPATITIS disease,Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Crocodile Protein Peptide. You can Google both of these to get more info. Also, need to do the cleanses,colon, liver, kidney, galbladder. Eat organic foods to get the toxins out of your body so your body can overcome the disease itself.This is important. I am not promoting his book, but I feel it is a must read if you want information on how to beat this awful disease. My mother is now HEPATITIS Negative with his help, Anyway, his email : (healthmedlab@gmail.com) God bless and good luck!
