The health benefits of Oregano Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, digestive, emenagogue, and anti-allergenic substance.

The disinfectant and antibacterial properties of oregano essential oil were first recognized in ancient Greece where they were often used for treating bacterial infections on the skin or in wounds. It was also employed to protect food from bacteria. Oregano, native to higher altitudes, normally grows in the mountains, which is how it got the name "Oregano," meaning "Delight of the Mountains."

*Due to a poor harvest from Turkey this year, we were forced to source a harvest from Greece. The quality is equal and there is virtually no difference in the aroma or GC/MS constituents; therefore, we left them under the same SKU rather than creating separate products. Upon ordering, you may receive either unless you specifically request one or the other.
