Oil of Oregano... a diamond in the rough!

Okay, this is my newest find, and I am so EXCITED about it! I am just sad to know that I am just now discovering it. I wish I had know about it in years past, especially when I was teaching!!! Anyhow, for those of you who have not met, without further a-do, I present to you... Mr. Oil of Oregano.

This little bottle packs a big punch and helps ward off sickness like nothing I have tried before. It blows Airborne and E-mergency out of the water by a long shot. It is completely natural and is derived from wild oregano plants (much different than the oregano we cook with) and is considered a purifier to the body and an excellent early defense mechanism when you feel sickness coming on. It destroys bacteria especially in the skin and the digestive track, increases respiratory health, aides in sinus congestion, and strengthens your immune system remarkably. It also is know to calm and aid in digestive issues and calm irritated gums or itchy skin. If you have kids, work around kids or with the public this is a great item to keep in your medicine cabinet.

If you are in the need for an immune booster, consider purchasing this oil (make sure you get the right kind, Carvacol concentration that is at least 70 %) and be sure to dilute it in a bit of water or juice (when used internally) or oil (when used topically) because of the high concentration levels. You can use olive oil or coconut oil as transfer oil (I used a drop of this in a tsp of coconut oil on my daughters face when she had a bacterial rash on her chin). If you end up taking this supplement continuously then you may need to look into an iron supplement because it can block iron absorption over a long period of time (so thus not recommended to pregnant moms to take continually). The ONLY down fall to this fantastic little gem is the strong taste and burning in your nose feeling you feel for about 30 seconds afterwards (I felt compelled to be a straight shooter with you my readers!) But you would rather a nasty taste for a few seconds or a nasty cold??? That's what I thought!

Okay, so I pulled this post back up, desparate to fight off a cold that was coming on after just finishing Antibiotics for a sinus infection.
I took it for a few days and the cold never fully materialized and the big week planned was able to go great!
But I have to say that this stuff tastes horrible! I can't stand the smell, especially now. It is so potent that you have to be careful to not let it drip on anything.
I will probably return to it though in desparation again.
Do you use it for Emery?

I can't believe you gave it a whirl, I tried to warn you about the gross taste, it's bad, but I've gotten use to it I guess! I only use it on Emery topically ( I have read not to use it orally with children under 7) so I mix it with olive oil and rub it on the bottom of her feet, then put her socks on before she goes to bed (when she has a cold that is!) I love it, and I am always up for trying something natural before going to meds. Keep me posted if you find other treasures!!!

This might not work for the kids...but I sometimes put essential oils in capsules and swallow them so it's not so nasty going down!
