Oregano is a common species of Origanum Vulgare, a genus of the mint family. It is native to warm-temperate western and southwestern Eurasia and the Mediterranean region
This magic plant has been used for thousands of years as a spice and as a medicine. Hippocrates, known as the father of medicine, used Oregano as a cure for many ailments. The oil itself is derived by distillation of the plant
A non-exhaustive list is below
- Oregano oil aids digestion and was used to treat food poisoning
- Respiratory tract disorders like a cough, asthma and bronchitis
- The ancient Greeks used Oregano for treating bacterial skin infections, wounds, and to protect food from bacteria
- Used to kill bacteria, fungi, yeast, parasites and viruses

Oregano oil has no side effects and is more potent than any other antibiotics in the market. In addition, pathogens (e.g. viruses, bacteria and fungi) cannot build resistance to it as is the case with conventional antibiotics. Oregano’s active constituents, carvacrol and thymol, have broad-spectrum antibacterial action.
