Featured essential oil of the week is: Oregano!
There are over 450 studies on www.pubmed.gov that have studied the effectiveness of this essential oil!
This AMAZING oil jumped back on my radar because of the relief it gave me a few nights ago from an awful sore throat. Every time I swallowed it felt as if my ears were going to burn off my head. I took out my reference guide ( if you don’t have one you MUST get one, so much better than guessing ) and one of the top suggestion for a severe sore throat was oregano. I applied it topically to my throat, behind my ears and along my jaw. I woke the next morning not sure what to expect. Well, I could barely feel it! It felt a little sore like after a day you shout too much. I continued to apply the oils during the day and the next evening. I was on the mend! And much faster than I anticipated! I was very grateful!
1. I have a friend (who will remain unnamed for reasons that will become clear), who had a deep cystic acne welt on the inside of the leg that had been causing problems for several weeks, that was red, sore, and inflamed. But, after applying oregano two nights in a row the inflammation went down, soreness was gone, and the cyst disappeared.
2. I also have a family member who suffered for a long time from planters warts on the bottoms of the feet. Applied oregano for two months ( 7 days – 2 times a day, 3 days off — on days off applied vitamin E oil ). They dried up and went away and have not come back! Two years later, still wart free!
So many reasons to use and love this oil. It is very strong so I would advise you have a dilution oil close by in case you are sensitive. Coconut oil works or V-6 (from Young Living).
