15 uses for Oregano! 🌱
1. An Immune System Boost.
Take 1-2 drops💦 of Oregano EO🌱 in a Veggie Capsule💊, with olive oil, for periodic immune support.
(a Veggie Cap is necessary as Oregano is considered a hot oil and may otherwise burn your mouth/tongue area or cause other skin irritations)
2. Keep calm and Oregano on.
Concerned about the sanitary conditions of a public place you or the kids have just walked on with bare feet👣? Your feet absorb more than you think! Follow up by applying one drop of Oregano🌱 & Thyme🌿, diluted with 6-7 drops of Fractionated Coconut Oil. Happy feet😃👣. .
3. Savor the flavor.
Put a drop of Oregano essential oil🌱 in your spaghetti sauce🍝, pizza sauce🍕, on a roast🍖, or any other entrée🥗 for delicious flavor. Because Oregano is so strong, you may want to put the drop first on a spoon🥄 and then use a toothpick to slowly add oil to the recipe.
4. The best defense🛡 is a good offense🏹.
To help keep your home clean🏡, mix 3 drops of Oregano🌱 with water in a spray bottle & spray it in corners of the shower🚿, sink and other damp and darkened areas.
5. Little Italy🇮🇹 at home.
Put a drop of Oregano🌱 & Basil🌿 in your veggie dip! Or, mix them both with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a savory bread🍞 dip!
6. Bring on sandal season👡! Apply one drop of Oregano🌱 to 6 drops of FCO to soften cuticles💅 and rough spots on your feet / around your toes. Oregano keeps impurities out!
7. Digestive dilemmas abated.
Oregano🌱 helps create a peaceful environment that is unfriendly to ‘the unmentionables’ that tax our digestive systems.
8. It’s about natural effectiveness.
Essential oils quickly go to work in your system. This year, when a change of seasons🌻🍃🍁 may have you down🤕, make your own wellness blend by combining 2-3 drops of each Oregano🌱, Protective Blend (OnGuard)🛡, Melaleuca🌿 and Lemon🍋 into a Veggie Capsule💊. By putting the properties of these oils to work, you will feel better naturally!😃 .

Oregano! Holy moly is this oil ever a power house especially this time of year.
Oregano is a hot oil, so if using topically make sure you dilute it, and when using internally you truly only need one drop. 🌿oregano is great for cooking! Add to soups this time of year to give it a little extra zing! 🌿if your feeling like you are coming down with something, that slightly achey yucky feeling. Place one drop on a spoon of honey before bed. When you wake up you will feel as good as new! I havent had the flu once since using this and i work with kids!!! 🌿on the topic of keeping yourself healthy. I mix oregano and on guard in a roller ball with coconut oil. I apply this to my feet nightly to make sure im giving my immune system a little kick. 🌿Message me to find out more about how to use oregano and the amazing deals to get this and many other oils into your hands this month!!!
I've been using oregano oil for the last little while on my middle sons planters warts on his foot. Tonight I sat down with him to do it again and when I took the bandaid off the one on his toe, it was dried up and gone. I put on another drop tonight and covered it with a new band aid to be sure, but this method was much easier than taking him to the dr to freeze it or using the harsh smelling chemicals in compound w or some other wart removal system. He hasn't fought it or cried at all in the time I've been treating these warts for him. And his room smells like spaghetti sauce when we use the oregano oil lol definitely no harsh chemicals involved. Oregano oil for warts...7 year old boy approved 👍🏻#oreganoessentialoil#younglivingessentialoils#younglivingcanada#oreganooilvswarts#younglivingindependentdistributor#byebyewarts
Salad for dinner doesn’t have to be boring and doesn’t always need meat. A vegetarian feast of health and flavor with roasted red and golden beets, arugula, red quinoa and roasted vegetables. I did add a drop of lemon, a drop of oregano, a drop of thyme oil and a drop of rosemary oil to my roasted veggies when I tossed them in grape seed oil before roasting. 😋
Some time ago our friend @ngiuris told us that he enjoys a drop of our oregano essential oil added to #mayonnaise into his sandwich.
We thought it was a great idea then, but it stayed in the back of our mind until we saw @oliveology 's "sparkling” recipe and decided to give it a twist and try to “marry” it with one drop of our oregano essential oil, like @ngiuris does.
It took only a few minutes of whisking the egg yolk and the mustard, while slowly adding olive oil, then lemon juice, then the rest of the olive oil (where of course we had added the drop of our essential oil) and there it was, smooth and sparkling!
The intense taste of our oregano essential oil spiced up the full, creamy taste of the fresh homemade mayonnaise (plus oregano essential oil is a natural food preservative - see article below*-) .
Here is the recipe from Oliveology’s blog https://oliveology.co.uk/velvet-mayonnaise-sparkles/ the way we did it, inspired by Nikos:
1 egg yolk
1 tsp mustard
Juice of half a lemon, plus more to taste if needed
250ml of extra virgin olive oil with one drop of our oregano essential oil
Whisk the egg yolk and the mustard. Slowly add half of your oil (with the oregano essential oil drop), whisking constantly. Add the lemon juice, whisking constantly. Add the rest of your oil, whisking constantly. Taste and season with salt and more lemon if needed.
Store in the fridge.
If you prefer a more intense aroma, you can add 2 drops of our essential oil. .

🌿💚Oregano essential oil is the extracted volatile oil of the oregano (Oreganum Vulgare) plant. Oregano means, "Delight of the mountains", as the plant grows at high altitudes. Oregano is used as a culinary ingredient.
Here are some of the benefits of this wonder oil:
ANTIVIRAL,ANTIBACTERIAL,ANTIFUNGAL: The chemical component in oregano oil, Carvacrol along many others can halt the growth of many pathogens. (Basilico and Basilico, 1999 study).It can be used for toenail fungal infections, acne, yeast infections...the cold, candida, and the list can go on and on, basically its one of the best things to use for any type of infection, especially hard to treat, persistent ones. It also boosts immunity by stimulating the production of white blood cells.
ANTIPARASITIC: Oregano oil creates an unfavorable environment not just for bacteria, viruses and fungi, but also for parasites like tapeworms and roundworms, and even critters like fleas, mosquitos and bedbugs. It can even by applied to skin (with carrier oil) and used as a repellent.
ANTIINFLAMMATORY: Carvacrol in Oregano oil is highly antioxidizing (Dr. James duke, The Green Pharmacy, 1997). In an investigation of 60 plants it was found that oregano had the highest levels of antioxidants and is especially high in vitamin E. These antioxidant effects make it excellent for treatment of diseases caused by inflammation (cancers, skin disorders, arthritis, glaucoma, even Alzheimer's). EXPECTORANT: Excellent for removing mucus and phlegm and can sooth lungs and throat, so it can be an overall cold/flu treatment.
EMMENANOGUGE: Regulates menstral symptoms, and can help with menopause.
ANTIALLERGENIC: Calms hyperactive reactions (allergies).
CAUTION: Don't use if you are pregnant.Essential oils are highly concentrated, never take an essential oil directly (internal or external) unless directed to do so by a doctor or physician.
For the use of this oil, dilute in coconut oil(1tbs carrier oil, to 3-5 drops of oregano oil). However oregano oil can be placed under the tongue to get the benefits.

🎁 A pleasant surprise to discover a tiny wild oregano plant right in middle of our small olive grove! 💚 .
. 🌳 Our olive grove is a bit more than an hour’s drive from our oregano farm and from our hometown Thessaloniki, and we mostly visit it during harvest period or to take regular care of the olive trees. .
. 🌳 This year’s harvest is very poor – contrary to last year’s- and as we walked among the “empty” trees we were surprised to notice this little wild oregano plant growing on its own, alone among the olive trees. We “protected” it with a few small stones not to miss the spot and to be able to observe its progress. .
. 🌳 In some parts of Greece people plant herbs in between the olive trees because their scents enhance the taste and aroma of the olive oil. .
. 💡 We have no such expectations from this lonesome little guy, but its presence gave us some other nice ideas to work on… . (We ll keep you posted on its progress...)

With a few family members feeling under the weather, there is nothing better than a bowl of homemade chicken soup on a cold & rainy day! First & foremost, homemade bone broth (that's right...I cook the entire chicken) is excellent for healing, speeding recovery & for prevention. It can actually boost the immune system. There is scientific evidence that supports all of this.
Chicken contains a natural amino acid called cysteine which helps to thin mucous, so you can expel it more easily. More recently, science has discovered that bone broth helps to "heal & seal" your gut. So, it's also beneficial for a stomach flu/virus & other digestive issues.
To receive the full yummy flavor & health benefits, you really must make it yourself (or have someone do it for you). Homemade stock contains minerals in a form the body can easily absorb & it's not just calcium from the bones. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons, such as; magnesium, phosphorous, silicon, sulfur & more. And, let's not forget about the veggies. The vitamins & minerals vegetables provide are important in your daily diet & especially when you're sick. Celery & carrots are staples in most chicken soups. I also add tomatoes to mine. Hence, the reddish hint to the broth in the pic. For a little added immune boost, I also add just one drop of oregano essential oil. That's really all you need. Oregano oil has antibacterial, antiviral & anti-fungal properties & enhances the flavor. My husband & children gobble it down without hesitation. 🙌😋 Overall, homemade chicken soup is warm, soothing, tasty, comforting & mood lifting. On a cold & dreary day, it will give you that much needed SpaRkle on the inside & out & help to brighten you entire being!🤗✨ Sparkle On...✨✨✨ Renee✨✨✨
☀With the summer to winter time change and the weather getting colder, we felt like going over our late summer vacation photos from Lesvos island. ☉Once more we noticed herbs like oregano, cistus or thyme growing in unexpected places like rocky surfaces or on the roadside, displaying their independent, frugal and resilient nature. And once more we reflected on this abundance, on how people take it for granted and uncontrollably exploit it for profit. .
🌱Cutting small quantities of herbs from the wild for community needs is what people always did, without harming biodiversity. 🌱 Although our lifestyle now is less connected to nature and less people still harvest medicinal plants for personal needs, demand for herbs increases as we still depend on herbs to address primary health care needs. 🔸No wonder then why overharvesting (usually by uprooting the plants instead of cutting them) by people with few income alternatives who then sell to wholesale traders at cheap rates, has led to biodiversity erosion.
⚠Not all countries have legal provisions to regulate this problem, or species - specific recovery plan carried out. 🔎In Greece there are rules controlling medicinal plant harvesting, allowing it according to season and area (there are areas where collection is completely prohibited) and only in quantities meeting personal needs, unless special permission is granted. ❎But even if collection is allowed, uprooting is definitely forbidden.
🔸Yet, despite the ban, proper cutting of the plant is time consuming, so illegal uprooting is the common practice that has led to significantly decreasing the population of many species such as Sideritis scardica, syriaca or Origanum vulgare Hirtum (the kind we grow) 🔸Many people have been arrested during the past years in Greece with big quantities of illegally harvested plants that, according to the relevant authorities, were to be sold for export to pharmaceutical companies worldwide. 🌍Even though it seems as a local problem affecting only countries where medicinal plants grow, it is in fact affecting everyone who uses herbal –based medicines or herbal products (between 70-80% of the global population according to WHO)

Oregano -- the head honcho. the bee's knees. the big guy. the weekend warrior. the big guns and the straight and narrow.
This heavy hitter oil has been my saving grace with colds this season. With two asthmatics, we quite literally hold our breaths when the seasonal threats hit our household. Slathering ourselves with On Guard to help protect our immune systems and using Oregano when the germs find a way through the barrier has been key.
Adding just a tiny bit of this oil to our protective and immunity support oils helps to kick germs to the curb before they multiply. It's such a key player in our healthy recovery.
If Oregano is not in your immunity support arsenal, go grab some now. And when you're not sick, enjoy it as a natural flavor in soups, pastas and more.
Spending the night in the ER with my 2 year old, had me on point in getting all things ready to support the rest of the family as she heals from a bronchial infection. Our bodies know how to fight we just need to cheer 'em on with oils, prayer, and rest.
Seasoning my beans with just enough oregano to give them a spicy kick.
The health benefits of oregano are just exactly what I need right, and wherever possible, I like to incorporate my supplements right into my food, and enjoy their nourishing flavors.
According to the label, I really ought to be using Oregano Vitality for this, but it's the exact same oil, so...

these little bottles of pure plant magic are all must-haves in your home/oil cabinet! #seriouslythough ..there are hundreds of uses for each of these, but that can be a little overwhelming, so here’s a very quick, very general, run-down of what each oil supports! i’ll be posting a few uses for each of them over the next few days too, so stay tuned! ✨
#mealpreppin over here today. Chopping fresh veggies for snacks, soaking fruit in #thieves to clean, hard boiling eggs for kids' lunches and tuna salad, roasting veggies, and making a week's worth of immune boosting #veggiesoup for lunches.
Here's how I make it:
1.5 lbs grass fed ground beef
1 cup celery
1 cup onions
2 cans organic mixed veggies
1 can organic diced tomatoes
1quart organic tomato juice
3/4 to 1 whole head cabbage, chopped
2 drops Young Living #basilessentialoil
2 drops Young Living #oreganoessentialoil
Salt, pepper, garlic and turmeric to taste!
I cook the beef, celery, and onions with oils and spices until the beef is brown and veggies are soft. Add everything else and simmer a couple hours. It's great with bone broth in place of the tomato juice if you have access. So good!
I guess it's a Peppa Pig kind of day today. My little lady hasn't had a fever for the last several days, but she's been sneezy and snotty since Sunday afternoon! When her fever broke and she was completely symptom free for 2 days, I figured it was all over. Nope...I was wrong. I guess this is what can happen when you stick the toothbrush your mom uses to clean with in your mouth!!!!😝🤢🤦🏾♀️Yes, that really happened last week. More on that in another post.
💥WARNING💥today I learnt a big lesson!
My niece (8yrs) has a wart on her knee so I thought we would try to rid it. We applied 1drop Oregano + 1drop FCO on it, I then walked away to get a bandaid. I came straight back, put the bandaid on & continued on cleaning up the kitchen. Then 1 mins later my niece pipes up & says "Aunty my arm is itchy" I look over to see this 😱. My heart skipped a beat as I knew straight away she must have done something with the oregano when I went to get the bandaid. I asked her what happened - she told me she put some oil on her arm 😨. I panicked knowing how strong this oil is & how dangerous it can be. My brain froze & I rinsed her arm under water, silly thing to do! BUT after contacting a friend I then learnt to put FCO on it. The itch turned to a light burning sensation, thankfully after putting the FCO on it by the time I took her to school it had stopped & was no longer red. PHEW! Lesson learnt, they are as curious as we are & do NOT leave oils unattended around to children 😷. #tryingsomethingnew#oreganoessentialoil#sharingmyjourneywithyou#lessonlearned#essentialoils#powerful#becareful#keepoutofreachofchildren#children
Baking has always been, hands down, more enjoyable then cooking in my book. Maybe because i love breads and sweets more then I love savory foods or maybe memories of long Thursday’s, baking with my mama and sisters for our small town farmers market are so fond. Maybe it’s because of the story of my Dad baking my mom a heart shaped valentine’s pizza or Grandma Chmelar’s famous Chocolate pie. I don’t know but either way, every time I pull out ingredients to bake I get all those warm fuzzy feelings. .
Fall is my favorite time to bake especially here in Mexico because that means heating up our little house that doesn’t have heat. Fall, desert, evenings, can get quite chilly. .
Manly planned pizza night with close family friends tonight so cheers to fall, friends who are family, baking, and oregano essential oil infused, pizza dough!
If it makes it to your grandma's kitchen top then you know it's good stuff! ☝️😉 Oregano essential oil is awesome for many uses, it's got great properties to support your healthy immune system for seasons when you need that the most! Grandpa was feeling under the rather the last two days and grandma used Oregano, diluted with a carrier oil on the sole of his feet, three times a day. Today he's getting ready to go out and enjoy the sunshine! 👏
There's also a Vitality or Plus labelled bottle to easily remind you that this oil can also be ingested or even cooked with. Remember that a tiny amount goes a very long way with Oregano essential oil! Being from a Mediterranean background, I love how this oil takes me back to the times when I was a kid and I'd help out in the kitchen preparing pasta or pizza. 💓 Have you ever used it before?
