I have been using the oil of Oregano for over 15 yrs, I use strong and good quality stuff.
One test I use for selecting a brand: if there is any hint of bitterness in taste, I avoid it. There are many on the market, I prefer strong, even used 100% for bad toothaches. It's worked for my teeth for serious and minor issues.
The best way to use it is by nipping in the bud whatever you notice, pain or discomfort, do not allow the problem to become a monster. Any major pain can be hard to get under control, but I have had 100 percent success even with these.
Maybe I'm well suited for it, I can take large doses of it and it only works that much better with no side effects. I know my body very well and can read it easily .
I have beat all viruses with it big and small, colds, allergies, toothaches needing root canals, pains in my body that were strong, do not know what they were but with constant use of Oregano they went away ... 100 % success and more things as well beaten.
You must be able to read your body, and you should be able better than anyone else, that's what pain is, it's a signal to you that only you are aware of. It's really that simple to me anyhow.
Oregano Oil is my go to, and I have other things too. It's been a blessing in a big way for years. I hope others find it too, many can not believe what I just wrote here, their great loss.
Any side effects?
Oregano Oil Tips
Here's a great way to take the oregano oil + coconut oil - I just started doing this myself:
1. Buy a silicone ice cube tray that make small cubes. The trays I have make 21 cubes each that hold around 2tsp of oil.
Here's a description of the trays from the website I purchase it from: "Each ice cube has a narrow dome shape (half circle) with a diameter of 30 mm and a height of 20 mm. This small size allows it to fit into most water bottles, and freeze quickly."
2. Fill the tray with melted coconut oil
3. Put 1 - 3 drops of oregano oil in each "cube" (or however much oregano oil you would like) and allow it to harden in the fridge or freezer - this happens quickly, maybe an hour or less.
4. When your ready for your "dose" of coconut oil / oregano oil just pop out a cube, chew a few times and swallow. Viola!
1. If you're not used to "eating" coconut oil, it may give you tummy discomfort. Start out with a smaller amount. You can also try taking it before or with meals.
2. Once the coconut oil / oregano oil mixture hardens, I pop it out of the tray and put it in a glass jar & keep the jar in the fridge. That way the oils aren't sitting in the tray absorbing more of whatever toxic material the trays are made out of.
3. You can also use these handy little cubes for OIL PULLING.
In fact, I have 4 different 12 oz glass jars with different combinations of coconut oil + essential oils for oil pulling!
Vaginal and Intestinal Bacterial Infection
Mix it with another oil such as olive oil. Please always eat something with it so it does not burn your stomach.
Vaginal and Intestinal Bacterial Infection
Oregano oil is also sold in softgel capsules, regular and super strength, that are easy to swallow.
Vaginal and Intestinal Bacterial Infection
I am interested in taking Oregano oil - so many recommend it but how to you get 4 drops down? I have been taking 1 drop occasionally in a little whisky and it always stops a cold in its tracks - so do you have a good way of taking a 4 drop dose? Also how often would you do that, please?
Vaginal and Intestinal Bacterial Infection
I wanted to let you know about the time that I used Oregano essential oil to cure a vaginal and intestinal bacterial infection.
I went to see my doctor and of course she put me on an antibiotic for 10 days. I didn't have any improvement. She then gave me another even stronger antibiotic for another 10 days. I went back a third time and the course was repeated. I was early in my medicinal plant learning at the time and didn't know a lot but decided to take my health into my own hands after being sick for 2 months. What did I have to loose?
I started taking 5 drops of Oregano oil in a shot glass of water morning and night. By the next day the irritation in my vagina was much better. I continued the treatment for 4 more days. By the third day I had no signs or symptoms at all. It was amazing how quickly it helped and never returned.
I swear by Oregano oil for any bacterial or viral infections.
I hope my story can help someone else with taking control of their own health.

I am so excited to share an experience I had while traveling in Mexico recently. While reading about how to avoid becoming sick due to the bacteria in Mexico's water and certain food (see "Montezuma's Revenge"), I learned that one of my old staples - Oregano Oil - is considered a great remedy/safeguard by a lot of world travelers because it kills off bacteria, parasites and more. About 3 days before my trip, I began taking about four drops with water each morning (70% Carvacrol); I continued this routine while I was on the trip. On the second to last evening, the three people I'd been traveling with became very ill within an hour of one another; absolutely horrible vomiting and diarrhea. Because we'd spent the day eating and drinking at the same places, I sat there in horror, waiting for the sickness to (inevitably) hit me like it'd hit everyone else. I waited and waited. Nothing happened. They were all brutally sick for 24 hours, and slowly returned to normal over the course of 7–10 days. But I NEVER GOT SICK. Oregano oil is truly remarkable. (Just make sure to read directions and start slowly to build your tolerance. If you take too much too quick, you will experience dizziness and stomach upset.)
Hi interested in how you applied the Oil of oregano to your gums ... how much... how often.
Thank you for your post I'm in the same boat.
H! I have been using oregano oil for 12 yrs. I'm currently using it for my allergies in my dog, over 5 yrs now and it still works, I tried all the others and they only partially worked for a short time.
I had some shin problems and cracked skin that would not heal for about 3 months, one time I rubbed oregano on my hands it has not come back that was 12 yrs ago .
I had a severe bug, not a common one but a very powerful one, 4 days taking oregano oil and it was gone and did not come back . Super Bug? Maybe.
I needed a root canal about 8 yrs ago, $1,200.00 was too much. I put oregano in the tooth off and on for about a month and it has not bothered me since, when ever I feel a tooth ache coming on I put oregano on it.
Had some serious lung pain about 5 yrs ago, I do have sensitive lungs due to smoking and bad air, Oregano works for that too, could I go on?
Yes I now use it every day and it keeps me going!
After getting a fungal infection after poking what I thought was a small blood blister, a 2" area around the site became red, inflamed, and hot and hard. I quickly took some organic Oil of Wild Oregano and mixed it with a carrier oil (jojoba oil), and rubbed it in. Within 10 minutes the swelling was gone. Very impressive. I will be sure to keep some on hand for the rest of my life.
Two drops in gelatin capsule twice daily kept my daughter out of the doctor when she got a very bad sinus infection. I had her take it for a week. With food and a warm drink ideally. Please do remember that it's powerful medicine. Also if you're going to use it topically it must be mixed with a carrier oil like olive oil or coconut oil.
For many people, full strength oregano essential oil can irritate the skin when applied topically.
collidial silver 30ppm - 3 times a day, 2oz total.
olive leaf extract 25 percent olureprin (work up from 1 to 3 capsules a day)
and oregano oil. 3 times a day sublingually.
= knocks out anything.
I started Oil Of Oregano 5 days ago in pill form. I had tingling, itching, red spots all over. I think I had hives. Very annoying and painful. Today and even 2 days ago I have no more symptoms. Its amazing. I had this problem for months!
I took the oregano oil orally. I fill 3 '00' size empty capsules and took them 3 times a day for 7 days. I also inserted a clove of garlic while I slept at night. You can do a search on garlic and yeast infections and the instructions should pop up.
I was cleared up in 4 days but continued taking the oregano oil to make sure the infection was completely gone. Hope this helps.
Same exact thing. I was so sick on oxygen right now..Always asthma. They say my lung was damaged due to mold in the flood. I stayed in hospital 17 days was at death door couples times. Finally they said mold grew in my lungs the mine sources and gave me bronchitis and my immune system was damaged anyone come round me I get sick. The doctor has me on vitamin d 50'000 units prescription...
Then my body ache all the time. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia oh god constant pain. I take gabapentin...cymbalta. So I am glad for access this site what amazing oregano oil and another remedy to use ginger root bring to boil..teaspoon honey mixed and a lemon let it sit .sip on it all day anytime. What a god bless relief jesus thank him but try the i oil it on my daughter too hope she feel very well she will get back to health soon praying for her.
My DH had this growth sprout from the back of his hand that grew and grew. I asked on EC for advice, was told poultice/castor oil/etc. So, he's been putting castor oil on it for months now and binding it with a cloth. No change, just kept growing. Big enough to snag when he puts his hand in his pocket, would bleed. Dermatologist said it needed to be cut off. The appt to do that is in 3 weeks.
Anyway, a week or so ago, he started putting oregano oil on it. Today, it came off! Not completely level with surface, but off! He had one starting to come up on his neck, too, and it also came off but not as completely. He'll keep on doing the oregano oil several times a day.
WOW, I'm blown away! If you google this, the internet is full of pictures of people with these things--they look like antlers and can get huge. God is so good, to provide us with this remedy and EC to spread the word! It may not be completely gone, but I feel it won't take long if he continues the treatment.
I've had similar stuff going on with me for over 10 yrs. I have really bad food allergies, I had blood test done and I'm allergic to Eggs, Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Almonds and white beans. My whole digestive system swells up! I had to have my gall bladder removed in 2003 but in 2012 I almost died because I had stones all in my Liver! I've been watching a show on TV by doctor and his wife - he constantly talks about intestinal dysbiosis and how Oil Of Oregano really helps with that! He said until you get your gut healthy you will never get better! I"m so tired of these food allergies and feeling bad! Beth how much Oregano have you been taking? I know I need to get a really good Probiotic too. Any suggestions for that. Thanks.
I have (or should I say Had ) Huge warts on my hands, mostly on the knuckles. Had them frozen via a long series of treatments every month for 6 months , finally they were gone. So I thought , within a couple months they were back and bigger than ever. I knew that I wasn't going through that pain again , so I started using oregano essential oil (origanum vulgare) full strength on them . Most of them are completely gone, I'm still treating the huge one that's left . It's half the size it was and I suffered no pain this time and didn't have go to the doctor.
I second your suggestion. I have only been taking oregano oil for less than a week, but it is working wonders. I've been suffering for three years, and if I'm fortunate, this oil could be the key to my healing.
Please remove your daughter from this moldy place. She will feel much much better.
I have lymes and used to be in a mold infested place. I was always feeling better when taking Cholestyramine, but my life was miserable. I lost motivation, function, concentration, it reeked havoc on my body and made me feel more sick.
There was water dripping from the paint, and managers didn't care to check. I kept smelling mold, getting dizzy and nauseous. Opened up bedroom cabinets under the sink and there was black mold coming through the paint like someone sprayed a light layer of black paint on the walls. Managers finally came and tore out that wall and the whole wall inside was covered in black mold, and it turns out that was dripping through the paint in the other bathroom had no where to escape so dripped into bedroom sink walls.
Also, this place had wooden floors which probably had high amounts of chemicals in it.
You can also get sick and dizzy from furniture. One really nice desk I bought from IKEA had a formadahyde smell coming from it. I could never sit in the office without getting a headache.
check all those things.
I took very high doses to clear the fluid out of my lungs. I had pneumonia and was scheduled to have a procedure to drain the fluid in about three days and I didn't want to do it. I prayed to God and he sent me the answer that very day-Oregano. I bought some after work and over the course of three days I was alternating between taking 2 of the gel caps with the oil in it and the dried herbs every 2 hours that I was awake. When they did an ultrasound on my chest to try to locate the fluid to see where they would go in at they found NOTHING!
The oregano was the only thing I did for this problem (I didn't even change my terrible diet at the time because I didn't know any better-please eat healthy if you don't :)). I still had some pain and that's why I went in but one of the nurses told me it's common for the chest pain to stick around for a bit but the important thing was the fluid was gone. That made a believer out of me and I have been recommending it to everyone. I used P73 OregaResp. I can't speak on other brands because that one works so I haven't bothered to try another.
So some of these issues you have to treat very aggressively. As the poster above says please do take it with a probiotic if you are taking high doses. Normally it doesn't wipe out good bacteria but if you take potent forms and high doses of it it will mess with the good bacteria. Hope this encourages someone.
I had the same experience and same exact dosage. Cleared it right up! Just make sure to take probiotics after :)
I was originally here looking for validation that this dosage wasn't too much! Glad I found this review.
Oregano Oil Side Effects
Oil of oregano is one of the two things that gives me gut wrenching cramps--the other is horseradish. Which is weird because I can eat large amounts of 90,000 HU cayenne or raw garlic with no problem! I find the best way to get it is to eat whole oregano which I load into my home-made flax crackers (actually flax, chia, sesame, pumpkin and sunflower seed). Yum! They definitely help with counteracting yeast, etc. I read while looking this up that someone suggested a drop or two in a glass of tomato juice. I think I will give that a try. But the capsules, so far too strong for me, though I plan to see if I can try them again sometime, maybe along with a large salad or something. The other thing that helps in a similar way to oregano is thyme. This I take in capsules, whole thyme, and it works wonders against respiratory infections for me.
Cholestraymine is, to my knowledge, not an otc product (Rx only); and good luck finding a mold dr, and if you do find one, time & travel expenses may throw the option out.
Two otc products I have personally found equally effective as Cholestraymine substitute is Sodium Alginate and Chitosan. The S.A. will require encapsulation (will stick to the roof of mouth and throat) as it is too binding to wash down orally like most other fiber sources.
Clearly your daughter was exposed to mold/ mycotoxins.
The steps to take
1.Find a an mold literate MD that is specialized in this area.
2. Get her into a clean enviroment a place - that has no history of leaky pipes and/or mold or mildew.
3. Take Cholestraymine - this is the most effective mold binder that will carry the mycotoxins out of the body
4. Get on Candida diet ( fungus free diet)
5. Buy a high quality zeolite and benonite clay.
6. Read the research at Sponaugle Wellness Institute is now the top mold toxicity clinic in America

For each gel capsule, usually they put one drop of oregano oil in some other oil.
Oregano Oil Reader Feedback
Are the oil of oragano pills just as good? I bought the gel caps.
I have taken it under the tongue and burned the area from taking it undiluted so this may not be the best option for some. Just fyi
I have been using ooo for many years and have found that the fastest and most efficient way to get wild ooo 80% carvacrol into the system is delivery right under the tongue. I do not use it in any gel cap form because I think some of the stomach acids inhibits it's fullest antibiotic and antiviral potential. I once tried it with gel caps and it didn't respond as well. Under the tongue is more potent and powerful, and I find that I respond much faster to it. It burns a bit, but that's a good thing and I do like the taste of it. If it's too strong for some, mixing it up in a bit of sunflower oil or water may help. Perhaps some juice as long as it goes under the tongue. I hold it under the tongue for as long as I can stand it, then swish it through the mouth and swallow it back, followed with a nice tall glass of water or juice.
I would never take this on a daily basis, and would use it only as a preventative in cases where I'm going to possibly be exposed to illness. I have read many studies that suggest ooo stands side by side in potency with last resort antibiotics such as vancomycin. A dear friend of mine who is a biologist grew some bacteria in a petri dish, added in ooo and the germ killing response was incredible. So I would never use ooo on a daily basis, but as needed. Something so powerful should be reserved for such things, in my opinion.
I killed a severe tooth infection once by taking 2 cloves of garlic and three drops (not dropperfuls, but drops) of ooo under the tongue every two hours (during my waking hours) and followed that regimen until pain completely reduced, then cut the regimen in half for a couple more days. Garlic and OOO packs a powerful natural antibiotic punch. Chop the cloves, mash them up, let them sit 5-10 min to release allicin. Swallow with water like you would a pill, then take the ooo right after and bam you have natures antibiotic.The toothache reduced greatly by end of day two, and gone by day 3. Some people experience a faster response.
I have killed strep throat with ooo every single time my daughter or I have caught it. The strep was confirmed with the doctor. We took the antibiotic script he gave us and put it on hold, and went home and did our ooo and within hours the sore throat was gone. I painted it on the back of the throat with a q-tip, and gargled it. For my daughter, I put 2 drops in water and let her swallow it back every few hours. Strep is nothing to play with, so if we had no response, I would definitely get the doctor's antibiotic, but we have never had to do this because ooo is just as potent.
I have had some very good experiences with ooo and I would never be without it.
My daughter had a callus or something on the bottom of her foot that she didn't tell me about. Not sure why she decided to pick at it. She said she thought there was something in it. Anyway, it got sore and there was a hole in the middle of it. That's when she decided to show it to me.*Sigh*
For two nights (a few days apart) I put a drop of oregano oil on it. She said it feels fine now. Just to be sure I'm gonna put another drop on tonight.
I have also used oregano oil on scratches and pimples. It works really well in helping both disappear almost overnight!
Still using the oregano oil and still having success with gums. No more bleeding! :-)
Oregano oil for skin infection/possible cellulitis:
I have fingernails that split easily and I sometimes get nail fungus. This happened to one of my thumbnails recently, and I had been treating the fungus by soaking it in apple cider vinegar daily (as I normally do to get rid of the fungus). So, last night I woke up during the night and noticed that my thumb hurt - enough to keep me from going right back to sleep like I usually do. Still, I was asleep again within a few minutes, but when I woke up for real in the morning, my thumb was so painful that I couldn't even use my toothbrush with my right hand - the pressure of my thumb on the toothbrush hurt too much. My thumb was swollen down to the first joint. The first thing did was pour hydrogen peroxide on it. Then I went downstairs to the computer to consult Earth Clinic. I saw tea tree oil mentioned as a helpful remedy. I have tea tree oil, but it was upstairs. I remembered that oregano oil is a powerful antibiotic, and I had some nearby in the kitchen (it came pre-mixed in olive oil), so I put a drop on the thumbnail crack. Within an hour, both the pain and swelling had subsided significantly. I do not know if it was cellulitis or some lesser skin infection, but since cellulitis is very fast-moving, I'm glad the oregano oil helped the infection/inflammation before it got worse.
I have had bleeding gums for years. When I wake up in the morning, my mouth seemed to be full of blood somehow. I would spit first thing and it would be bloody. :-(
Also when I brushed my teeth, a LOT of blood.
I recently began taking oregano oil (mine came mixed with olive oil) several times a day for general immune system strengthening to help with another issue I'm having.
No measured doses, just whatever came up in the dropper when I pulled it out of the little bottle.
It's been a few weeks now and I realized just this morning that I have had no more instances of blood in my mouth when I wake up. Also blood when I brush has been greatly reduced. I have used it to brush my gums with (once or twice) and think I will do it more often to see what results I get.
Side note: I seem to cough up a lot of phlegm during the day since taking the oregano oil. It's clear but makes me wonder if I've been having lung issues all this time without knowing.
I am not sure if anyone has suggested this but all of your Daughters symptoms sound very familiar to mine. I have Celiac Disease and was just finally diagnosed a year ago. I also have fibromyalgia as well as Hypothyroidism... I have been gluten free for a year and taking alot of the supplements suggested in previous post. I hope and pray your Daughter starts feeling better soon :)
Erowe: To add to others responses, the main reason for the weak and lowered defense is, imho, a weakened immune system which is weakened by a chronic lack of antioxidant nutrition. Antioxidants to begin now for immune boosting is: Zinc and Vit-A; take as directed on labels. Do this for about a month and begin supplementing Selenium and Vit-E. Then move on to the many other antioxidant nutrients on the market today like Mixed Carotinoids, Wild Berry, and Pine Bark/Grapeseed.
Also, do the "Thymus support" I posted a few pages above for a Lyme sufferer.
All this plus the other advise will repair and regain the health of your daughter.
I agree wih Roec with the use of baking soda. I have worked in the mold removal field for a time and baking soda is the one thing that can kill mold without killing you. I now drink it every day for maintenance. Other than that, I strongly recommend a high dose of iodine. I have taken 100 mgs of 5% of iodine for two weeks at a time with no side effects at all. (Just be sure to work your way up to this dose.)Your daughter won't believe how this will help her energy levels and it may heal her thyroid. Nascent iodine is the superior kind of iodine and you can get it on the internet. Taking some selenium which you can get by eating 2 brazil nuts a day, taking vitamin c and unrefined sea salt will help the iodine work. I wish you all the best. Please let us know how she is doing!
I'm so sorry to hear of your daughters condition. All of those antibiotics can backfire over time. Have her juice carrots and one green apple a day, cut waaay down on meat, pasta and other grains like bread. Increase tons of raw and dark green leafy veggies Have her take a good daily vitamin. This will help the body recover nutrients in order to heal itself.
The anti-mold regimen I recommend is 2 capsules of olive leaf casuals 3 times a day until the bottle is finished. Don't settle for cheap brands because of price, I find GNC brand is the best. It may cost more but over the years, I have found that brand most effective.
I would also try a baking soda bath to see if that helps. I use Arm and Hammer Super washing soda as its pure sodium carbonate, a natural anti-fungal and mold. It's soaked in through the skin and when I am not feeling well, this helps although, it may help restore to a more favorable PH balance as its mode of action. I think I have a mild case of candida from time to time. This helps.
I also recommend that she wash her cloths using baking soda added detergent and borax to help eliminate any fungus or mold from recontaminating her.
HELP PLEASE. I know the previous post is old but I am hoping someone will respond to this. In Jan 2011 my daughter ( age 25) insisted on moving out of our home into a small 4 room house with a friend. My son painted her bedroom and there was so much moisture that water dripped down the walls and separated the wet paint. The wood floors were always damp. By February she began to have a chronic cough and then a sore throat. Was treated with an oral antibiotic. Her roommate had the same symptoms and was treated with 4 antibiotic injections and oral antibiotics. Two weeks later she was sick again and treated with the same. Her roommate was of heavier frame and very athletic. My daughter is 5'4" weighed 105. My daughter continued to get worse, but would not go back to the Dr. She finally moved out in March. By April she was admitted to hospital with 103 temp 24,000 white blood count, heart rate of 153, a very tender spleen, her throat was completely white. Drs said she was on the edge. Stayed 5 days with pick line and 3 antibiotics, released with oral antibiotics. In 3 weeks she was on antibiotics again. She has had numerous tests. Has had her tonsils removed. Has seen 3 infectious disease drs I have always felt she has mold sickness. She is now 27. She is in constant pain. Before she got sick she was vibrant and looking forward to the future. Now she is depressed, has anxiety, has chronic headaches, nausea, and can hardly get around because of constant exhaustion. She has seen 3 infectious disease drs. One said he did not believe in the mold scenario. A rheumatologist seen 6 months ago is treating her for fibromyalgia. An endocrinologist said she has a cyst on her thyroid. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Re: "Never in my life have I seen such immediate effects from anything. (But let's give God the credit, shall we? After all, it's God who makes the natural remedies in the first place. And it's God who directs us to the right cure at the right time."
I had a broken tooth which then produced a sinus infection, which then produced bronchitis. Suddenly I felt like I couldn't breathe and I prayed for guidance. My daughter found some [oregano extract] in her drawer that she had taken previously for pneumonia. I was amazed when I felt immediate improvement in my breathing, so I kept taking this twice a day until my sinus infection and bronchitis cleared up, along with my tooth infection.
Until I took this and researched online, I had no idea that 80% of high blood pressure is caused by underlying infections, hence the infection caused by my tooth was the reason that my blood pressure had become so high (200/95) Once it cleared up my blood pressure improved, although I couldn't get it all the way back down to normal range until I researched regarding Nitric Oxide to reduce blood pressure. Once I started taking Arginine and Citrilline with _____ organic Vitamin C complex, my blood pressure further reduced to the normal range. I am still taking [oregano extract] daily until I can afford to get my tooth fixed.
Some doctors might say that this was a "coincidence" or that this is the result of the "placebo effect", but I found alot of other people who stated online that [oregano extracts] improved their various infections, candida, cold and flu etc. I believe that "God's Medicine Chest" is far superior to drugs created by man, and the "proof is in the pudding"
