Oregano essential oil
1. - INTRODUCTION
Oregano oil is a extract of oregano, known to science as origanum vulgare of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Oregano oil is a highly potent purifier that offers many benefits for human health. The natural substance extracted from oregano has two key compounds - carvacol and thymol. Studies have shown that these two compounds have a significant effect on harmful microorganisms that can cause many illnesses in humans.
Oregano oil is known to be a potent antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasitic oil that can reduce pain and inflammation and fight infection effectively. It also helps strengthen the immune system, increase joint and muscle flexibility, and improve respiratory health. The best known and most popular benefit of oregano oil is its ability to cure mild stomach problems. It is also well known for its quality to control coughing. However, oregano has many other benefits, including eliminating fungus, curing digestive problems, soothing headaches, treating Athlete's foot, sore throat, breathing problems and dandruff (and other skin problems).
