🍃O R E G A N O🍃 . “Oregano repels pathogenic bacteria and parasites in nature, making it a natural antibiotic” You may know Oregano for its fresh or dried counterpart used in Italian cooking, but did you know that Oregano is a natural antibiotic?? This plant is a serious powerhouse when used in oil form.

There are a lot of people who enjoy using this oil in cooking - personally I find it too strong so it stays in my medicine cupboard for when its time to play hard ball with germs 🦠 Oregano can be used; 🍃daily to maintain healthy immune and respiratory functions 🍃to fight seasonal threats (check out FLOOM post a few back) 🍃to soothe and clear skin blemishes like warts and skin tags 🍃to ward off stubborn coughs and chest infections 🍃to assist in balancing the body’s inflammatory response 🍃to provide the body with essential antioxidants 🍃to aid digestion and assist the body of ridding foreign invaders 🍃to clear fungal infections 🍃to replace dried oregano in your favourite dish (you only need a toothpick swirl!!!) Oregano is what is considered a ‘hot’ oil and should always be diluted when applying to the skin, applying to the soles of the feet first to test for skin sensitivity. .
