My week is not going as planned at all. But I just love to connect with you, even if it is just for a short moment.

Today I would like to talk about Oregano essential oil with you. It is not an oil I use on a daily basis. I would strongly advice against using it on a daily basis for a longer period of time. That is the reason, I choose this oil, so I can explain why.

You might know and use the herb Oregano for your cooking. I use it a lot. I love the smell and taste of it. The oil smell the same (even way stronger), but is also way more potent than the herb. Oregano oil has strong antibacterial and antiviral benefits. It really is a natural antibiotic. Yes, that stuff the doctor prescribes you for infections and other illness. You can Use oregano oil as part of a first response to sickness to help beat bacterial illnes.

It also has very strong antifungal properties.  It is a wonderful oil to support athletes feet and fungus nails.

If in this time of year, allergies and colds are challenges, you can try a drop of oil using inhalation or a nice tented steam.

Between antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory actions, oregano essential oil is traditionally considered a staple for relieving conditions that stuff up the sinuses. How to use it? Put a drop of eucalyptus and oregano oil into a bowl of hot, steaming water. Lay a towel over your head and neck like a tent and breathe deeply with your eyes shut.

Emotional Oregano can help you with feelings of being overly attached, pride, opinionated, negative and materialistic. It will support feelings of humility, non-attachment, teachable, flexible and willingness to be wrong and devoted.

I once used it to brush my teeth with it. My tongue really didn’t like it ( a bit of olive oil can help with that, but my teeth were white and I had no plaque for almost 2 weeks. It had killed all bacteria that cause plague.

What not always is understood, is that Oregano is a so called “hot” oil. When you want use it topical, you have to dilute it! If you forget, don’t try to wash it off with water, dilute it with a carrier oil. Because oil and water don’t mix very well, when wanting to use it internal, you best use a veggie capsule. Don’t use it in combination with a neti pot. Because it is a natural antibiotic, I would advise you to use it in the same way. So never use it longer than 2 weeks in a row and after that, rebalance your gut by using the PB assist (probiotic supplement). You also have good bacteria in your gut, you need them. Also use a probiotic supplement after an antibiotic cure.

Don’t get me wrong, it is absolutely safe to use this oil. Just remember, you bring on the cavalry here. So use it with caution. I love using it with fevers and colds and you hope it will help you beat those too.

To your health,

Marie-Christine

PS I only use the doTerra oils in my home. I know these oils are safe and 100% pure. Since I don’t know the quality of any other oil company, everything I write only apply to doTerra oils.

PS2 when your kids are smaller or you have sensitive skin, please dilute the oil more. For the use of oils on animals: the smaller the animal, the more you need to dilute the oil.

PS3 Yes you can use Oregano on dogs. Not sure about cats. But as a cat owner, you know, they tell you if they like it or not.
