Pacific Coast Lady (Crescent City, CA) on 03/07/2022: Oregano Oil for Post Nasal Drip Mucus
If the Oregano Oil is too strong, dilute it more. I used one drop at first in 1 Cup of water that's 8 ounces, that's a drop people, not a dropper full. Now I am using 2 drops in 1 Cup of water, that is 8 ounces.
I use it, so far, after a meal, but wait at least an hour. I am going to try it tonight before bed. I still won't be hungry because I do a ketogenic diet, so I will try it and come back.
I have Post Nasal Drip that was gagging me, my foods have helped some, but the Oil comes recommended to eliminate that awful mucus that is caused by my sinuses, and sometimes Silent Reflux.
I also forgot to add that those recommending Wild Oregano Oil are doing so because it has 86% (this was in topical essential oil) Carvacol which is the main ingredient that helps fight the issues mentioned, not food grade. Mine is not Wild, but it is what I could afford to buy. It is 60% Carvacol and 2% Thymol for flavoring and preservative. The rest is Organic Cold-pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The rest is mixed tocopherals (from non GMO Sunflower).
I'm just putting this here because many of us can't afford the very best, only to try it out and have it not work for us, or we just don't like using it.
I figure if I use a bit more, I should get a closer effect to the more expensive, who knows, I just wanted to remind folks of this because someone out there might be in the same financial boat as I am ;)
