If you’re considering using oregano oil, you already know how beneficial it is for health and wellness purposes. Although oregano oil did not make its North American debut until the early 20th century, it was widely used in ancient times. Hippocrates wrote extensively about oil of wild oregano, singing its praises as a cure for digestive ailments, skin conditions and respiratory diseases. There is also evidence that in ancient Greece, oregano oil was used for the treatment of headaches, wounds, snakebites, spider bites and even the common cold.
In modern times, oregano oil is an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-allergenic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-parasitic dream come true. Perhaps most notably, oregano essential oil is an anti-microbial with a demonstrated ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi. However, it’s important to understand that not all oregano oils are equal. You need to choose the best oregano oil on the market to fully realize its benefits.
Understanding the benefits of oregano oil
A member of the mint family, oil of oregano is not what you put on your pizza sauce. Found in the Mediterranean, medicinal grade oregano is distilled to extract the essential oil and to preserve its healing compounds.
The predominant healing compound, carvacrol, is arguably the most important component explaining why oil of oregano is so potent. Over 800 studies reference carvacrol in PubMed, the world's #1 database for scientific evidence-based literature, which emphasizes that research is quite supportive of its capacity. In fact, it’s known to have healing compounds against the following:

In other words, oregano oil is a natural defense against numerous health issues of many kinds.
The difference Healthy Health has to offer
It takes over 1000 pounds of wild oregano to produce just 1 pound of oregano oil. Our Healthy Health bottles offer 1 ounce, or 250 servings, of the best oregano oil you can buy.
When you need that much wild oregano to produce oregano oil, some companies are willing to settle on a type of oregano with fewer benefits. Oregano has 40 types of subspecies across the globe. But Healthy Health oregano oil comes from the Origanum Vulgare species of oregano.
This species grows wild in the mountains of Turkey, and just down the road from where our founders grew up. The benefits of this species are unparalleled. Origanum Vulgare has a unique balance of compounds, which work together synergistically and is the best of its kind.
