Wild Oregano Oil Overview
Wild Oregano Oil Properties

Why WILD Oregano?
Not all oregano varieties are equal.
The medicinal effectiveness of the Wild Mediterranean Oregano is unparalleled. This particular species (origanum vulgare) has a unique balance of compounds, which act together synergistically. Gathered wild, Mediterranean oregano is free of the chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.

What makes WILD Oregano special?
Conventional crops of Oregano can be contaminated with chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, which would render the oil toxic and unsafe for human use.

Organically grown Oregano even though free from chemical pollutants may lack the full range of compounds which make this herb so uniquely potent. The Greeks and Italians who settled in North America, will be the first to tell you that despite their best efforts, even the most carefully cultivated Oregano plant falls short of what they know the Authentic Oregano to be.

It takes an exact amount of sun, quality of water and air, right humidity and an important balance of naturally occurring soil minerals … in other words a precise combination of many natural elements that are necessary to create the optimum environmental conditions found only in the region of the Mediterranean.

Wild, crude, Mountain Oregano is the only kind that is naturally rich in carvacrol, flavonoids, terpenes, esters and many other chemical compounds which combine to give this herb its tremendous strength. The Oregano plant has been commonly known and utilized for many centuries in Mediterranean countries such as Greece, Portugal, and Turkey. Highly esteemed for its powerful health-promoting properties and beautiful aroma, Oregano has been named by the local folk “the joy of the mountains”, which expresses their obvious sentiment for this extraordinary herb.

The Incredible Herb

Wild Oregano has been helping people in the Mediterranean maintain good health for centuries. Books and records by prominent herbalists, preserved throughout the ages, contain numerous references to the curative powers of Wild Oregano and point to its many uses. As is the case with many traditional folk remedies, modern science has been late researching this incredible herb and spice. Recent laboratory studies confirmed the powerful antibiotic, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties of Wild Oregano.

A long list of ailments that have been effectively treated with the Oregano Oil includes:
acne, allergies, arthritis, asthma, athlete’s foot, candida, constipation, croup, dandruff, diarrhea, digestive disturbances, insect bites, bronchitis, canker sores, colds, flu, earaches, fatigue, gum disease, headaches, menstrual irregularities, muscle pain, parasites, pulmonary tuberculosis, pneumonia, psoriasis, toenail problems, seborrhea, ringworm, rosacea, sinusitis, varicose veins and warts.

Oil of Oregano is also a powerful painkiller. An article published in Phytotherapy Research describes how oregano oil superceded anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation and is nearly as powerful as morphine.

Is Oil of Wild Oregano safe for children?
For infants and children up to the age of seven, only external use is recommended. Dilute one drop in a teaspoon or less of vegetable oil and massage into the soles of the feet. The oil may also be inhaled straight from the bottle or by placing a drop on a tissue or cloth. For older children the oil may be taken internally. It is advised to use only one drop and dilute it with olive oil, juice or a teaspoon of honey to reduce the heat sensation which may be too strong for a child. Preventative measures against disease are very effective in keeping your children healthy. Germs spread from the hands to the mouth are notorious for causing infections. Dirty fingernails harbor all kinds of nasty pathogens. Keep your child's fingernails short and frequently wash their hands and nails with a drop or two of Oil of Oregano and soap. Liquid soap mixes easily with the Oregano oil.
Can I take too much Oil of Wild Oregano?
Yes! Essential oils are composed of highly concentrated naturally occurring chemicals. Even herbs and natural forms of many plants are only beneficial in small quantities. This is true of Oil of Oregano. Please do not exceed recommended dosages except in cases of life threatening infection. The adage "less is more" is at work here. The liver must process Oregano oil and will become overloaded if too much is taken. People using excessive amounts of alcohol regularly or taking 3 or more prescription drugs should avoid using Oil of Oregano.
Can Oil of Wild Oregano be used to help prevent infections?
Yes. Use Oil of Oregano with soap to wash hands or skin after exposure to public washrooms or close contact with other people in crowded environments such classrooms, airplanes, buses etc. You may also inhale the oil, or rub it onto the gums. Avoid mucous membranes and other sensitive skin areas. Oil of Oregano can be added to water in a mister and sprayed around the house to kill bacteria, mold and viruses in the air. Use a drop or two on a sponge or wet cloth for cleaning kitchen counters, sinks, stoves; and refrigerators in order to kill microbes.
Are there other uses for Oil of Wild Oregano?
Yes! You may add a drop or two to vegetable oils and other foods to extend their shelf life. Oregano oil contains phenols and other compounds which are powerful antioxidants. You may add to water and use as a spray to prevent or eliminate mold, mildew, fungus and airborne bacteria. Use a few drops on a wet cloth for cleaning and sanitizing kitchen counters and bathroom surfaces. Use for daily hygiene by adding small amounts of Oregano oil to liquid soaps for washing hands, feet and body. Carry when camping, trekking or traveling for adding to water or food and for treating cuts, scrapes, bites etc. One of our customers successfully used our Oil of Oregano to rid her houseplants of pesty bugs.
What are the benefits of using Wild-Crafted Oregano Oil?
Most of the essential oils sold today are geared towards the flavor and fragrance industry. Since huge volumes of the oil are in high demand most of the plant material is conventionally farmed using chemical fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, all of which are toxic to humans, animals and the environment. Until recently many aromatherapists, suppliers and manufacturers of essential oils were not convinced that organic and wild crafted plant yielded a superior oil. That line of thought was proven inaccurate by testing done in Europe over two years ago. It was discovered through laboratory testing that essential oils derived from most conventionally farmed plants contained as much as fifty times the allowable safe limit of agri-chemicals. Due to the rapid assimilation of essential oils into the human bloodstream, the hazards of using such chemically laden oils is readily apparent. For essential oils to be safe they must be produced from chemical free, organically grown or wild plant sources. In our experience, wild crafted plants generally yield the most beautiful and beneficial oils. In the case of Oregano, mineral rich soil, pure air and sunny conditions in the Mediterranean combine to create optimum environment for the high carvacrol oregano. The resulting oil is of the highest therapeutic quality and effectiveness.
