                               How to use oregano? 


  oregano is a warm and aromatic yet slightly bitter herb in the mint family. Good quality oregano has a pungency that numbs the tongue. The best quality is grown in a warm, dry climate. The name is derived from the Greek, meaning “mountain of joy”. Sunlight encourages the concentration of the essential oils that give this herb its flavor. Two other herbs are used in the same ways as common oregano but have different culinary and medicinal properties. Mexican oregano is a plant in the verbena family that has an even stronger flavor, while marjoram is a closely related plant that lacks the same essential oil content and has a different, gentler ‘mouth feel.'

Culinary Uses

  Oregano is a very flavorful herb that is often used in Italian, Greek and Spanish cooking. It is often used in seasoning blends, including Italian Seasoning, and pairs well with meats, tomato dishes, and eggs.

  I always add it to my homemade soups and stews, especially during illness, as it is said to have antibacterial properties. According to Marks Daily Apple:

  Oregano contains thymol and carvacrol, two oils which have remarkable bacteria-fighting power. In fact, researchers recently discovered that it is a better treatment for giardia than the prescription drug commonly prescribed to treat the illness.

  Oregano has been gaining popularity as a natural remedy, though its use as a health-boosting herb is centuries old. It contains high amounts of Omega-3s, Iron, Manganese, and antioxidants.

  Its Essential Oil is well known in natural health communities for its antibacterial properties, and it is even being studied by the mainstream medical community for its potential benefits. It is considered to be antibacterial, antiparasitic, antiseptic, antiviral and immune stimulating.              

  Like the fresh herb, Oregano Oil has very high amounts of antioxidants. It is often used internally during illness, and externally for skin infections (including yeast) though it should be diluted before use. Due to potency, it is important to check with a qualified specialist or practitioner before using this or any other herb, especially during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

  It be consumed as an herb in culinary uses, a tincture, tea or essential oil.

The diluted oil can be consumed to speed recovery during illness.

Oregano Oil (diluted in coconut oil) can be used on skin infections to boost healing.

  It can be mixed in to oil as part of an oil pulling routine.

Diluted oregano oil taken internally can help with allergies.

Oregano oil diluted in olive oil can be rubbed on sore muscles and joints for pain relief.

Dried oregano, in combination with other dried herbs like basil, rosemary and thyme, can create an effective facial steam for loosening congestion and calming coughing.

  It can be diluted for effective use on athletes foot and fungal infections.

  It can be helpful in redding the body of ringworm when used topically.
