We may not know it but we usually have a healthy relationship with different bugs such as Candida. In the right conditions, Candida can grow out of control and become a problematic infection such as thrush. These infections are called opportunistic infections. Oregano may be diluted and added to a foot or hand bath to help manage fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, nail and skin infections. Alternatively, a massage blend of well diluted Oregano essential oil could be applied to ‘spot treat’ infected areas around the hands and feet. If fungal infections are a problem in your household, a few drops of Oregano essential oil can be added to a pre-wash treatment to disinfect sports uniforms, socks, underwear, towels and linen.
• In a bucket or sink full of water add up to 6 drops of Oregano and stir or agitate clothes.
• Allow to soak for 10 to 60 minutes.
• Add clothes to wash as usual
Wound Healing Spray:
Skin protects us from bugs and germs. Scratches and tears can lead to skin infections if we don’t keep the area clean. This is especially important for those with lowered immune systems and conditions such as diabetes were wounds can take longer to heal. Oregano essential oil has strong antimicrobial properties making it useful to clean and disinfect small scratches and wounds. Simply add a few drops to a small spray bottle of water and spray onto the injured area.
Oregano can be added to soothing muscle rubs and massage oil blends. The essential oil is thought to have anti-inflammatory properties which can help to reduce muscle aches and pains. The antioxidant action of the essential oil could be useful to reduce metabolite build-up after exercising and is thought to improve the health of arthritic joints. Enjoy less muscle pain and improved muscle and joint health thanks to Oregano.
Traditionally, Oregano was used to treat indigestion and its warming action can soothe an upset stomach. Oregano essential oil may be useful to improve appetite and relieve abdominal cramping. It has been reported that Oregano could be used to treat SIBO, small intestine bacterial overgrowth. SIBO has been linked to many unpleasant symptoms from tummy pain to fuzzy thinking. We can consider Oregano a general support to gut health and to help improve cold and weak digestion. Add Oregano essential oil to your customised digestive blend and apply to the abdomen in a clockwise direction and to the lower back and sides.
Oregano has a long history of being used to manage respiratory complaints. The antiseptic action may be helpful to treat coughs, tonsilitis, colds, and flu. Asthma, hayfever and other inflammation in the respiratory tract may benefit from Oregano essential oil. Diffuse a few drops in a blend to reduce airborne bugs or make a chest rub to relive sore muscles from prolonged coughing.

We have good evidence that shows the power of the oil’s antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial actions.
