Oregano oil is made from pressing the leaves and flowers of an oregano plant (part of the mint family). The oil is then distilled and can be used for a variety of different uses. However, not all oregano oil is created equal. Oregano is native to Europe but is grown on many different continents and in many different countries around the world.
This powerful oil is antibiotic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antiseptic, anti-aging, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic… just about everything you can imagine! And with all these great properties come great uses.
A large amount of academic research and clinical studies have proven that oregano oil is a powerful oil that offers many advantages to human health. It is a powerful, natural antibiotic that contains more than 50 antibacterial ingredients, is by far more useful than drugs, and has no side effects while, at the same time, fights germs that do not become resistant to it. The latest study of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece showed that it acted effectively in favour of reducing blood sugar while having very significant antioxidant properties. (i)
