Spanish Oregano Essential Oil is a very powerful and complex variation of oregano. The aroma is herbal, peppery, and warm. Essential Oil of Oregano is deemed the world's most complete natural medicine. Oregano Essential Oil is commonly used for fighting yeast, fungus, infection, and allergies. This Oregano Essential Oil contains 60-70% Carvacrol, a monoterpenoid phenol which gives Oregano its healing benefits. Carvacrol inhibits the growth of several bacteria strains by damaging the bacteria cell membranes and inhibiting their proliferation.
NOTE: Oregano Essential Oil should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding because there is evidence it can be embryotoxic. It also needs to be highly diluted (at 1% or less) if being used topically.
