If you could pick one item for your natural medicine cabinet that could ward off cold and flu viruses, eliminate warts, cold sores, athlete’s foot, dandruff, respiratory tract and sinus infections, what would you choose? If oregano oil doesn’t come to mind, it’s time you gave this overlooked and potent remedy its rightful place in your natural first aid kit.In a study reported by Science Daily Magazine, oil of oregano at relatively low doses was found to be effective against staphylococcus bacteria and was comparable to antibiotics like penicillin in its germ-killing properties.

Researcher Paul Belaiche reported his exhaustive studies of aromatherapy oils in his three-volume work, entitled, Traite de Phytotherapie et d’Aromatherapie (Treatise on Phytotherapy and Aromatherapy). He used a testing method that allowed him to examine the effectiveness of essential oils against specific bacteria, called an aromatogram. He found that oregano oil killed 96 percent of all pneumococcus bacteria, 92 percent of all neisseria, proteus and staphylococcus bacteria. Some strains of neisseria are responsible for diseases like gonorrhea or meningitis. Proteus is a type of intestinal infection and staphylococcus is the culprit in some types of food poisoning.
Love This? Never Miss Another Story.

He also found that oregano oil eliminated 83 percent of streptococcus and 78 percent of enterococcus. Various strains of streptococcus have been linked with strep throat, scarlet fever, rheumatic fever or toxic shock syndrome. Some strains of enterococcus are linked with cystitis, wound infections and anorexia.

What’s more is that oregano oil also killed 78 percent of candida bacteria, commonly linked with intestinal or systemic candida infections and 78 percent of klebsiella bacteria, which is linked to lung infections.

In a study by the National Institute of Pediatrics in Mexico, scientists found that oregano was effective at killing giardia, a parasite that causes abdominal distress.

The Journal Food Protection cites a study by researchers at the Department of Food Science at the University of Tennessee also report impressive findings regarding oregano oil’s potency against bacteria. Scientists found that oregano oil exhibited the most significant antibacterial action against common germs like staphylococcus, E. coli and listeria.

Researchers in the United Kingdom found that not only was oil of oregano effective against these common bacteria, it has antibacterial activity against 25 different bacteria.

Mother Nature has provided us with a powerful antibiotic in oregano oil. Unlike synthetic antibiotics that are powerless against viruses and funguses, oregano oil is effective against these pathogens too. With its wide variety of uses and potency against so many different types of infections, it is a welcome addition to any first aid kit or natural medicine chest.

Be nice if the article said just how these results were obtained. Was the oil being used with cultures in petri dishes, or in actual people with these infections?

Barbara P, if you're fighting H. pylori, have you tried Chios gum mastic? Fully natural, a resin from a tree, it was the first really effective treatment for H. pylori, after the bug was found to be at the root of almost all stomach ulcers. Very safe, been used medicinally for centuries. Also benefits oral health due to the antibacterial properties it has.

Oil of Oregano is very useful when used correctly. Please look up amounts and methods of use. It helped my brother with some medical problems. Unfortunately, I'm allergic. Thanks.

Oregano oil is an excellent natural antibiotic. I've been using Oregano oil, along with a full out natural regiment, to help battle H Pylori bacteria and other bacteria gut issues. It is also excellent for immune boosting and fighting off illnesses, especially colds and flu. I also use it for sinus infection and congestion and it works really well as a natural decongestant. I only use it orally and follow it with a glass of water. Buying a high end brand is very important and I only buy Natural Factors brand.

The author fails to mention that care must be taken with Oregano Oil as it is potent and can be toxic - which is true of many substances. She doesn't even link to any instructions or warnings. Actually, when applied directly and externally there are many substances that will kill bacteria and virus but when it comes to internal uses, everything should be investigated first. Biased and/or blind articles like this on Care2 must be taken with a grain of salt so to speak.
