 Studies have shown its usefulness against candida albicans, aspergillus mold, staph infections, vaginal infections, pseudomonas and listeria. A study from the US Department of Agriculture showed that the essential oils presented antimicrobial activities against Salmonella and E.coli. Other research holds the same, stating that oregano oil is such a powerful antimicrobial that it can be used to preserve food.

New, safe antimicrobial agents are needed to prevent and overcome severe bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Based on our previous experience and that of others, we postulated that herbal essential oils, such as those of origanum offer such possibilities.

In an article published on Science Daily, the essential extract was found to be effective in killing Staphylococcus bacteria. It was also equally as effective in its germ-killing abilities as common prescription antibiotics.

Another study published in the journal, Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology found that oregano extract could lower the negative effects of induced colitis in rats and opens the door to new ideas about its benefit to the colon and liver.
