Our oregano essential oil is a steam distillation of branches of the herb with white pink flower which is growing in Turkey. We need around 50 kg to receive 1 kg of essential oil.
Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional practices. Oregano was and still is a popular cooking spice.
The amazing healing benefits were first discovered in Greece, where it was used as a topical anti-bacterial for the skin and for wounds. Growing wild in high altitude mountainous areas, it got its name, ‘oregano,’ or ‘joy of the mountains.’
Oregano is the strongest antibacterial oil.
Oregano is an antioxidant due to its high phenol content. Oregano has a special affinity with the respiratory and digestive systems and is a good natural antiseptic due to the Thymol content. Oregano is a wonderful addition to an essential oil collection but must be used with care due to the phenol content.
