I couldn't find this one so here goes. Best for kids, as it helps whatever is causing the fever, especially virus. Two drops of Oreganol Oil, on each foot rub it in and fever will break in a matter of five (5) minutes. I have four kids and have used this on ALL of them. It has absolutely always worked.

You can rub a few drops on chest for congestion or sinus trouble too. I have used two drops behind ear (rub all around area) for curing ear infections, ear pain, etc.

You can't beat it for cuts, they will never get infected! Best for little finger cuts as they are hard to keep clean! Also cures toenail fungus, especially seriously infected ones, drop several drops around nail bed, under nail, and around affected toe, with in hours, the pain is gone! Three times a day and the toe infection will be gone in a few days. My friend 6'11" male, was about to go to the ER when I told him to try this, he could barely walk! It was easy to walk in a matter of hours and completely cured in a few days! Three times a day several drops. Epsom salt soaks help to draw out infection and help pain too.

Earth Clinic is my Favorite for everything!

For the last 15 years I've had chronic sinusitis, post nasal drip, clogged nose, etc. I was constantly clearing my throat, and sometimes coughing. I snored a lot, which my wife didn't appreciate, and the snoring actually would wake me up in the middle of the night, leaving me tired in the morning. I seemed to catch colds more easily than before, but I attributed this to my very frequent plane travel.

Doctors prescribed antibiotics, but I they did not fully cure the problem and when I stopped the treatment, every symptom returned. (And I just don't like unnatural treatments.) Others said it was allergies.

I wondered: Could my sinusitis be a fungal problem? More exploring on the internet found the answer:

In 1999 Mayo Clinic researchers found the cause of most chronic sinus infections to be an immune system response to fungus, and that this may kick off a secondary bacteriological infection. It is not an allergic reaction, but an immune reaction.
Again, I felt betrayed by the medical profession. Why hadn't anyone told me this?

I went to the health and vitamin store to look for an anti-fungal nasal spray, and nothing met my requirements or budget ($10-15 for a one ounce bottle of ingredients seemed way out of line.) Here's the formula I "invented:"

1. Rinse out a 1 ounce nasal spray bottle
2. Add one eye-dropper (approximately 1 ML) of Oregano Juice (NOT Oregano Oil -it's too strong and will not dissolve in water)
3. Add a pinch of salt (approximately Ĺ ML) (Iodized salt is OK - iodine is a good anti-fungal)
4. Fill the rest of the sprayer with distilled water, and shake well until the salt is dissolved.

Spray as frequently as once an hour until symptoms subside. For me, this solution began working within an hour; most symptoms were gone in three days. And the price of the ingredients per bottle is just a few pennies.

If the oregano/saline solution is too strong for you, dilute in half with water. If you want, you can add a drop of eucalyptus oil with Ĺ ML of glycerin, (which will bond the oil to water). I now spray once or twice a day, just to prevent any recurrence.

A very dear friend, who is 75, has had awful sinusitis for years. He heavily cleared his throat every minute or two. I told him of this simple formula, and two days later he called me to say it was working. He then said with amazement: "I don't believe it, we've been talking for over 15 minutes and I haven't had to clear my throat once!"

There are articles and books that claim that some cancers are caused by fungus. If this is true, taking action on fungus early may be very beneficial in the long run. It's time we gave fungus a deeper analysis.

I wanted to give feedback about the oregano of oil. It works great for toe nail fungus. I started applying the wild oregano of oil to my toe nails after 5 days it was half cured. I have been using the oil for about 5 months and my toe nails are almost 99.9% cured. It is great to have nice toe nails again. I can wear open toe shoes again. I used the oil at the beginning twice daily straight from the bottle and I applied or rubbed the oil with a cotton tip. I suffered from this condition(white patches) for about 10 yrs! Thank you for the previous posting.

I have been using wild oil of oregano for my gum issues, but I am writing regarding my feet, lol. I had been struggling with one toe's skin split between the toes, washing and hydrogen peroxiding it. Didn't seem to help though. After a couple days that toe began itching in that area and on the front of the toe too. After scratching all day, I didn't feel like going to the store and looking for an OTC product. I had the wild oil of oregano there and wondered what would happen if I put a couple of drops on the split and itching area. I rubbed it in and waited. After a while the severe itching stopped, but tried to come back. I refrained from scratching and the desire to scratch subsided more and more. Next day the itching is gone. The split area seems to be healing too. Feels normal again. So if this ever happens to you, give it a shot. I am glad I did!

Are the oil of oragano pills just as good? I bought the gel caps.

Replied by Prioris

For each gel capsule, usually they put one drop of oregano oil in some other oil.

Kennel Cough in Dogs: 100% Natural Oregano oil in capsules; 2 capsules twice a day for a week or so, about 2 to 5 drops of oregano oil per capsule with a carrier agent like grape seed oil (about 12 drops). You can get the essential oil at most nature type food stores and the empty capsules. Within a few days you will notice a huge difference in your dog and within a week no more coughing and back to normal. You can also sterilize your home of germs and viruses by putting about 15 to 20 drops in a humidifier and running it. Your house will smell like a wonderful italian kitchen and the house will be sanitized!

Pain and inflammation, due to arthritis, bursitis, overworked muscles or plantar fasciitis respond beautifully to oil of wild oregano, applied topically. I highly recommend it, both as a user and as a registered nurse. I have suffered for five years with severe pain in my feet, both knees and right hip. I have done cortisone shots, anti-inflammatory drugs, orthotics, and endless pain meds. I take ACV, which does improve mobility overall. For true pain relief, however, the oil of wild oregano is the only way to go! It can be mixed - 6-10 drops to one tablespoon of olive oil and rubbed into the affected area as many times a day as you wish. On the soles of my feet, I use it full strength as the skin in that part of the body is much thicker. I noticed a decrease of pain and improved mobility after the initial application. Within 3 days, I was virtually pain free! Oil of wild oregano has many of the same properties as morphine and works almost instantly. It is available at some health food stores and on the web. Be sure you purchase pure oil of wild oregano. It is worthwhile to try this for any chronic pain. Good luck!

I've had chronic leg pain for many years, and tried numerous ways to relieve it. Most don't work, or give very temporary or partial relief (OTC pain meds, capsaicin-based topical rubs, shea butter, H2O2 therapy, etc. ). I tried this week adding a few drops oil of wild oregano to almond oil and rubbing it on my legs. I wasn't entirely pain-free, but I was able to sleep all night! What a gift.

@Marla - Have you tried soaking in a hot tub with epsom salts? I do it in the evening before bed. It works wonders!

I want to send a big hug to Mary and ALL nurses. I had surgery (no choice) a few years ago and my back was put out of whack when they transferred me from the examination table to a gurney to move me fro emergency to a room. The doctor completely ignored what I tried to tell him and, because I couldn't get a deep breath, he assumed I had a collapsed lung.

I explained what happened to one of the nurses and asked if they had someone in physical therapy who could apply "spontaneous release by positioning". I explained what it was and, of course, I couldn't ask one of them to try it and there was no way a hospital employee would or could help me but she and several other nurses searched and searched for someone in the area who was familiar with the technique. To no avail, but the point is that nurses are more geared toward getting people better than social status, authority, money or whatever it is that doctors hold so dear that they refuse to listen to what their patients tell them.

I was stuck in that hospital for a week, unable to catch my breath without sharp pains, until I was released and able to put one of those curvy back adjusting things on the floor at the top of the basement stairs where I could sit on the floor at the top and still reach the handrail to get up off the floor as if it was a sort of chair - as I was still profoundly weak but I think that is one of my most awesome moments EVER - when that released and I was able to take a deep breath...ahhhh...it was like heaven.

I just wanted to say how totally AWESOME nurses are and how much I appreciate all that they do and have to put up with from both sides of the doctor/patient equation.

I came down with a most horrible sinus infection after getting a really bad head cold. I was desperate! I even went to a conventional pharmacy to ask for help- which of course, they couldn't do. So, I went to the health food store in my neighborhood and the lady there recommended wild oil of oregano. WOW! Is this stuff powerful! It is day 2 and the pain is completely gone and I can breathe freely. It is really hot (I take it sub-lingually) even though it is in an olive oil base. I have spent more money than I care to mention trying to find something that really worked- and this really does. I also irrigate my sinuses with a colloidal silver spray. The combination of these two things is the best I've found so far.

I noticed in your long list of ailments, psoriasis was not mentioned. Please let people know that Oregano Leaf absolutely gets rid of psoriasis in a big way. I have battled psoriasis since I was 10 yrs old (I'm now 48). I had heard that oregano leaf and olive leaf were good for infections so one day, I started taking them both. Within a week my skin was so clear my husband commented. I started wondering what I had done differently. I had taken olive leaf before with no visable result so I started investigating the oregano. There are MANY resources out there on psoriasis and oregano leaf, and also, that psoriasis is mainly caused by a fungus (which oregano goes after). I personally buy OregaMax since other oreganos have not worked for me. People should know about this!! It is wonderful. Three to five capsules a day (divided) should do it. I got my initial results simply taking 1 both am and pm.

Oil of Oregano and Bronchitis. My chest was stuffed up for a couple of years. Don't like to go to the doctors. I heard about Oil of Oregano. I was taking two drops under my tongue twice a day for about two weeks. Within two days I could not believe the differance. I can breathe freely again without coughing. This was about two months ago. I also stopped smoking after 35 years 3 weeks ago and I cannot tell you the improvement in my health.

Last year I started to get boils about three to four a month. Started to take turmeric (capsul form)it took care of the boils. I've been taking one capsul every day since and not had any outbreaks until I take a break for a few days from all supplements, vitamins and the turmeric. I then feel a boil coming on and resume my regimine and feel fine after a couple of days.

I too have suffered from lower respiratory infections that have sometimes lead to bronchitis which has now lead to asthma. I have been miserable, for most of the winter and spring the last two years. Summer and fall, it seems to be fine. I have ordered some oil of wild oregano, but I am interested in hearing stories about how helps lower respiratory infections and asthma.

M from Texas wrote about ailments possibly stemming from toxic mold. My young son and I are victims of toxic mold inhalation and exposure, so I have learned more about the subject than I ever wanted to know. The most important point I want to get to this person is, if you took things from that apartment, especially if mold was visible on them, you have just brought the problem with you. The mold is now growing in a new home, and you are still exposing yourself to it. My son and I had to leave everything behind and move from our home. Traditionally Western medical practioners do not even want to acknowledge the health problems associated with toxic mold; They have received no training for it in medical school, and there is pressure on them from numerous areas such as insurance companies, real estate management and developers, etc., to not acknowledge the affliction. I am treating my son with a number of natural remedies, although ACV hasn't been one of them, I intend to try it. But what I have found to be helpful is pure essential oils.

Oregano is the best, but when mixed with Frankicense, and a special formulated blend of Clove, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Lemon, and Eucalytpus, the synergy of the Oregano is enhanced. I put these oils into a gelatin capsule and take them orally. I also get massages with oils over the spinal area which is where the fungi like to live, in the spinal fluid. These oils with the massage, called a Raindrop technique massage, will help drive the mold from your body. I do experience the mold ejecting from my body with skin bumps that spit out these nasty little white or brown crystal-like things, the size of a piece of salt or a little larger. They get easily infected, so it is important to keep the skin very clean, and to use Colloidial Silver or some other method the keep bacterial growth down. I am open for ideas to replace Colloidial Silver, because it is so very expensive. Any ideas?? Also, we now use a diffuser in our home which diffuses essential oils into the air we breathe. This has helped our conditions a lot, and it helps ensure that as molds are being tracked into our home, that we are killing them.

Just be sure that you are getting PURE ESSENTIAL OILS. They cannot be fragrance grade or be adulterated in any way. Love your site!!!!!!!! Ask all to pray for us, and for all victims of toxic mold.

for the writer wanting to know a replacement for colloidal silver b/c it's so expensive, buy or even make your own silver generator and get some .999 silver. you only need a short piece of it as it lasts forever. the generators are inexpensive and, like I said, you can even make your own. it's basically batteries and alligator clips. google it. don't know why pre-packaged c. Silver product makers charge such high prices given how inexpensive it is to make. just cuz they can I guess. It "sounds" mysterious but it's quite simple. I make pints at a time in 45 minutes at home.

re: Update on oil of oregano -- Taking the oil of oregano has really helped. I felt wonderful for 2 days then felt like I had the flu for the next 2 days. (Headache, dizzy, muscle and bodyaches ect.).But I think it was things being killed off in my body and a release of all those toxic critters. I have also done some reading about tumeric and have been putting it on my food which I think helps too. I take 20 drops of oil of oregano 2x's a day in water. The brand Im taking is Oregano Spirits by Herb Pharm. I hope this helps because I was feeling like the Hpylori was killing me. I was miserable and had no energy at all. After the oregano Im feeling so much better and I have more energy. Maybe because my body doesn't have to fight the Hpylori as hard with the help of oregano. I could be wrong but that is what it seems like to me. Im just glad Im feeling better! I hope this helps.

Are there any other person that have used the oil of oregano for h pylori bacteria?

Replied by Andrew

Just to be clear -- what you are using is a tincture, not oregano essential oil. The dosage for the essential oil will be very, very, very different.

Could you please give me info about dosages of Wild Oil of Oregano. I've bought a 30 ml bottle of the pure organic essential oil (min 86% carvacrol). I took 4 small drops in a glass of water and it was extremely unpleasant, very hot and an overpowering taste. I chased it with a couple more glasses of water and it took a while but I now feel okay. I'm not averse to the taste of herbs and such used in natural remedies - I think compared to many I'm pretty tolerant and open-minded, but this challenged me! I'm uncertain how to use it for best effect. I've basically bought it for candida, but am also very interested in the claim that it can be good for migraine and osteoarthritis.

Dear Dave from London,

Yes, straight oregano oil is super strong, as you learned! For internal use, you can put a drop or two into a capsule. I would take it with some food or milk. You can also just massage a drop into the bottom of each foot a couple of times a day. Even then, I would add a bit of a carrier oil. Oregano oil is not recommended to use straight.

For the migraines, you might consider feverfew. One capsule of it daily is enough for many to avoid migraines all together. It works for my daughter. On the video page of Earth Clinic, Dave Thomas has a video on migraines.


If you keep up with the oregano, let us know how it works for you! I hope it is helpful!

In the Illinois countryside we've never had mosquitos like we've had this summer after 8 or 9 straight days and nights of downpours with little let-up. I invariably have more than a few bites now each time I visit my orchard and garden. The only thing that saves me, although tea tree oil is pretty good too, is wild oregano oil diluted in olive oil - one or two drops per tsp., both seem to work well. Rub it on the mosquito bites or the painful wasp or bee bite and the itch or pain is immediately gone.

I refer to one painful wasp or bee bite that cut short my visit to my orchard and sent me back to the house - the oregano took care of the spreading red of the toxin immediately . The next day there was nothing but a small mark and I had no further pain or itch. I started with the oregano oil for a dark skin patch on my shin and two boil-like cysts that were on my skin for some time. Rubbing hard sometimes to the point of making it bleed, twice a day, and in about 10 days to two weeks the raised dark patch on my shin gave way to pink new skin, the eruption on my upper leg completely disapeared and now finally the eruption on the back of my neck about three inches from my ear is just about gone.

I am a regular reader of earth clinic and am very grateful for all the information. I am thankful that I am able to contribute to this forum. I recently discovered Oil of Oregano (100% vegetarian). My internet search revealed that Oil of oregano was used to sterilize surgical utensils back in the 1950's and has been found to be useful in fighting infections that are resistant to penicillin. It is also said to be useful in treating sinus infections, bladder infections, candida and lung infections.

I have just started using oil of oregano to help kill h pylori. I think it is working but I will post back in a week to let you know. Also I have tried garlic and cabbage and broccoli sprouts which helped a little but seemed to make me feel like I had the flu while taking this by means of juicing it. I think because the hpylori was fithing back and so my body was fighting against it making me feel worse. But the oil seems to be doing a good job.

I am interested to know how you feel. I have HP myself. The latest information I found is that you can't and should not kill HP. To keep it under control is the goal. Just like all other bacteria that live on/in our bodies -the balance is the key. You can look it up on siberiantigernaturals. com. I do 1-3 times/a year prophylactic treatment with natural remedies. Have not tried Oregano oil yet.

Also, do a stomach acid test with baking soda- you might find you have low acidity- and HP thrives . Adding pepsin to your meals might help a lot. Also, if yuo have HP, you might have an "intrinsic factor" (google that).You might want to add vitamin B12 on oral spray form. Keep in mind the only test for B12 deficiency is MMA urine test (Methylmalonic Acid). Large % of people with dementia are actually have b12 deficiency because they were not diagnosed properly.

I've used Oil of Oregano for mouth infections, to help cleanse intestinal parasites, as well as ward off yeast infections. I use the liquid form which tastes really bad and burns. Finally I got smart and now buy empty capsules from the health food store and put 2-3 drops in a capsule. Now I get the full benefits without the awful taste. I also brush my teeth with it sometimes and still use it as a rinse if my mouth or gums are sore (I dilute with warm water). I always keep a bottle handy.

I considered myself a healthy 54 until december of 06, when I got a cut on my figure that woudl not heal. After finally healing I got the first of three boils on the buttock area. Two of which had to be lanced in the hospital. of course the Dr. prescribed cipro, lixapro, etc, you name it. When the third one appeared I used oil of oregano on a round band aid for a week change it often and it went away. I am currently taking oil of oregano in pill form everyday and drinking green tea and doing the apple cider vinegar with water and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. I have been boil free. I should also mention that when I had to have the first boil lanced, the Dr. mention I was the third person that day that he had done the same procedure.

My cough went on for more than a month, often keeping me up at night. I tried chewing on the clove of garlic each day but it didn't lessen the symptoms. Finally fearing a more serious medical situation, I consulted this website. I drank the apple cider vinegar and water in the morning followed by 4 oil of oregano throughout the day. I made sure to expectorate the phlegm that I could and by the next day, my lungs were clear. THANK YOU!
