Oil of the Week – Oregano

Oregano (Origanum vulgare)

Known as a popular cooking spice, Oregano also acts as a powerful cleansing agent, and offers powerful antioxidants—extending its uses far beyond the kitchen.

 

Description

Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional practices. The primary chemical components of Oregano is carvacrol, a phenol that possesses antioxidant properties when ingested. Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with a carrier oil when applied to the skin. One drop taken internally each day can help maintain healthy immune function; Oregano can be taken more frequently as needed to further support the immune system. In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano also supports healthy digestion and respiratory function when taken internally. Oregano’s aroma acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends.

 

Uses

  • Take one drop in a veggie cap or 4 fl. oz of liquid daily to maintain healthy immune function.
  • Add one to two drops to a veggie capsule to support healthy respiratory function.
  • Put one drop in place of dried oregano in spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or on a roast.
  • Put 10 drops in a 16-ounce spray bottle with water for a surface cleaner.

 

Primary Benefits

  • Used as a powerful cleansing and purifying agent
  • Supports a healthy immune system, healthy digestion, and respiratory function when used internally
  • Offers powerful antioxidants when ingested

Essential Oil Recipe of the Week – Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Now that it’s fall and starting to get cold outside, visions of hot beverages start dancing through our heads.  How about hot chocolate with a drop of peppermint essential oil?

You can of course surf the web and find the perfect hot cocoa recipe or it’s really okay to use powder mix from a can or packet.  That’s what we do in our house.  I’m a busy mom/business owner.  When I want hot chocolate, I want it now.  My inner child doesn’t want to wait for me to make hot cocoa from scratch.  So, when we get our hot water and our hot chocolate powder mixed together in a harmonious marriage we add one drop of peppermint essential oil per cup,  Give it a quick stir so they all become one, then you have to add whipped cream!  Why?  Because, if you don’t add whipped cream the earth will be thrown off it’s axis and nothing will be right.  Now you need your softest lounge-wear and a good book.  Enjoy!
