Oregano Oil- The Most Powerful Plant-Derived Antiseptic

When God said in the Bible that the fruit of trees is good to eat and their leaves medicinal (Ezekiel 47. 12), he knew what he was talking about. Every plant has some medicinal properties and many are yet to be discovered. Indeed, it was only in 1910, that a scientist named W. H. Martindale documented that the essential oil of oregano is the most powerful plant-derived antiseptic known. He showed it was 26 times more active as an antiseptic than phenol (a powerful disinfectant). In 1977, at the second International Congress of Phytotherapy and Aromatherapy in Monaco, a French doctor named Belaiche unveiled his Oregano Index that uses Oregano oil as the base reference to compare the bactericidal action of other substances. The reason he chose Oregano Oil is because he determined by rigorous laboratory experimentation that, out of all natural essential oils, Oregano was the closest to an ideal antibacterial agent.

He used the analytical technique of Schroeder and Messing, who measured the "halo" of bacterial inhibition in millimeters caused by specific essential oils in a bacterial culture medium maintained in petri dishes. He tested both the ability of essential oils to inhibit bacterial growth as well as to kill bacteria. Belaiche also chose to use bacterial cultures taken from sick persons rather than cultures grown in laboratories. He tested essential oils on test groups of bacteria that ranged from 20 to 90 different types such as E Coli, Candida, Staph, etc. Based on these experiments, Belaiche and other French doctors developed an "Aromatogramme" or a chart measuring the halo of inhibition caused by individual essential oils on specific bacterial cultures. After exhaustive studies he concluded the following statements:

"This aromatic essence ( Oregano ) is almost always the leader. Among the most active oils Oregano is the "best of the best..." The essential oil of Oregano has always provided me with amazing results in treating infectious diseases. Besides Oregano oil's bactericidal action, it also prevents spasms, convulsions and nervous disorders. In my estimation, the antispasmodic qualities help to synergize its wonderful antiseptic powers which comforts me everytime I prescribe it for my patients. It is surprising that Oregano oil has been known for a long time but is only now being recognized for its therapeutic powers."

Belaiche and his collegues devised a standard to determine which oregano oil would consistently provide therapeutic results. First they determined there were two constituents of Oregano oil, namely Carvacrol and Thymol (technically referred to as phenols}, which proved to be remarkable antibacterial agents. They analyzed Oregano oils from Spain, Morrocco, Italy, and Albania. They observed variations of 22.4% total of Carvacrol and Thymol in Albanian Oregano oil to 66.5% in Spanish Oregano oil. After careful study they decided to identify a maximal therapeutic Oregano oil as containing a phenol total above 50% with a minimum of 40 % Carvacrol and the rest Thymol. During their tests in the 1970s they chose to work with the Spanish Oregano in the Labiatae family of plants, specifically called Floribundum Mumby, or generally classified as Origanum Vulgare. The results of their studies indicate that therapeutic Oregano oil is distinguished by its high percentage of Carvacrol in comparison to Thyme plants which have much more Thymol than Carvacrol. Sometimes different species of Thyme plants are also called Oregano, but they are not as active as real Oregano oil nor as safe to use for human internal consumption.

Impressive results have been published about Oregano oil's qualities. Back in 1918, a French scientist named Cavel did research on meat stock cultured in septic tank water. He found that Thyme oil and Oregano oil in very small doses were able to destroy and prevent the development of microbes. In 1992, two researchers at the University of Bologna, Italy ( Caccioni and Guizzardi) studied the fungicidal effects of essential oils on harvested fruits and vegetables. They determined that carvacrol derived from Oregano oil was able to almost completely inhibit spore development in fruits and vegetables at very minimal doses.

Traditionally, the Oregano plant and its essential oil have been used as folk remedies. In Turkey, where Oregano oil is referred to as "Kekuk Yaguh", it is commonly used to stop colds and indigestion. One or two drops of the oil are mixed with hot tea and drunk before bedtime. I personally have used Oregano oil with great success. After avoiding the dentist for over ten years, I recently went for a check up. I was feeling some discomfiture in a tooth that had been covered with a bridge 10 years ago. The dentist announced that he would never have put such a bridge on that particular tooth. It was a popular technique ten years ago, but had presented too many problems such as the one I was experiencing. He suggested taking off the bridge to treat the decay and do root canal work. He cautioned that taking off the bridge might result in cracking the tooth and losing it. I am sure many of you have felt the frustration of sitting in the chair with the dentist staring at you with devastating news. My only thought was, "Let me get out of here and try something natural." After careful thought, I decided to try Oregano oil which I had heard about as being the most powerful antiseptic essential oil known. Effectively, the infection was advanced and often painful, with frequent eruptions of foul smelling pus that I cleaned away with a toothpick. I began to apply the Oregano oil at least ten times a day under the bridge into the decayed part of the tooth. After one week the pain and pus stopped. It has been almost six months now and I have not felt any discomfiture or pain from this tooth.

The name Oregano is derived from the Greek origanos, meaning "delight of the mountains." Medicinal oregano grows wild in mountainous areas of Greece and Turkey often growing out of rock clusters. Such wild oregano is incredibly rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, copper, boron, and manganese besides vitamin C, A and niacin. Using the Turkish variety of Oregano as a spice can be a very medicinal addition to salads, soups and other dishes.

Because Oregano oil is so powerful, it is wise to dilute it with olive oil or other suitable comestible oils for internal use. When using on skin, again dilute it with a carrier oil so that it does not sting the skin. Oregano oil can be used for skin conditions such as athletes foot. A mixture of four drops Oregano oil in a half ounce of apple cider vinegar is an ideal treatment for this condition. Other skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne can be improved or eliminated with Oregano oil diluted with colloidal silver water or a carrier oil. For intestinal gas and digestive problems, as well as sore throat, Oregano oil can be taken internally. One to four drops a day under the tongue or diluted with juice can be ingested. Candida and other fungal infections can also be kept in check or eliminated with the topical and internal use of Oregano oil. Obviously, this oil and herb can be used for an extensive number of ailments.

There is an Arab proverb that states, "He who made the door and the lock also made a key to open the lock." The Oregano plant and oil are one of the keys given to us by the Almighty to alleviate the frequent pain and suffering of this mortal body.
