Oregano oil was first used in Ancient Greece, and in Greek the words ‘oregano’ means joy of the mountains. It was at that time when oregano oil was first used for its antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic, and antifungal properties. It was a common remedy for aches and inflammation. It was the favorite antibacterial tool of Hippocrates. Oregano leaves found great application in the treatment of respiratory and digestive issues.

The power of 4: Oregano oil contains 4 major groups of active healing agents
Oregano oil contains phenols, such as carvacrol and thymol. These offer a huge antiseptic and antioxidant power. Terpenes like pinene and terpinene have great antiseptic, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anesthetic properties. There are two types of long-chain alcohols in oregano oil – linalool and bonreol.
They are antiviral and antiseptic agents as well. Esters like linalyl acetate and geranyl acetate release strong antifungal potential. Each of these has strong healing properties, but carvacrol is the most important compound in oregano oil. Scientists have confirmed that it is one of the greatest antibiotics science has ever met.
Every type of oregano oil has different potential
Origanum vulgare and Thymus capitatus are the original types of wild Mediterranean oregano. It grows well in Spain. It is of great importance that the oil you are using is made from these two types. Carvacrol has to be present in concentrations of 70% or even more.
Oregano essential oil cannot trigger harmful strains in the human body, and does not cause the usual side effects of conventional antibiotics. It is powerful against dangerous and life-threatening bacteria without the common biological changes in the body. Oregano oil soothes and nourishes the body, and does not deplete it of most essential nutrients like pharmaceutical antibiotics do.
According to statistics, people in the Mediterranean mark a longer lifespan than other nations. Could it be the oregano that helps them live longer?
