Oregano General Information
The word Oregano comes from the Greeks, which means "mountain of joy". The Greeks believed the sweet smell was created by Aphrodite as a symbol of happiness. Oregano was placed in tombs to give peace to the departed, and bridal couples were crowned with it. As a culinary herb, Oregano has a strong flavor, but has unique medicinal qualities which were well known from ancient times. In the 5th century B. C., Hippocrates used it for curing various diseases such as stomach pain and respiratory diseases. In the 15th century, Paracelsus used it to treat diarrhea, psoriasis, vomiting, jaundice, and fungal diseases. Mediterranean people used it as a meat preservative.

The spice used today in food is not “true” Oregano; it is more likely to be marjoram or Mexican sage. Both marjoram and Mexican sage are used because of their sweet taste, but their medicinal properties are different than “true” Oregano. The key constituent in Oregano is a phenol called carvacrol. Carvacrol is a potent and natural compound that is very effective in fighting bacteria, virus, fungus, and parasites of all types. This herb has antibacterial and anti-fungal, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Oregano Uses & Scientific Evidence For

Oregano Dosage Information
When purchasing medicinal quality Oregano, check for a brand that labels it as Origanum vulgare hirtum or heracleoticum, the “true” species of medicinal Oregano. You can use unsweetened tea as a gargle or mouthwash. Drinking Oregano tea is effective in treating the conditions listed above. Oregano leaves can be pounded into a paste and used to treat rheumatism, swelling, itching, aching muscles, and sores. Put Oregano leaves in steaming bath water and let it sooth your muscles. The oil of Oregano can be used for toothache pain.
