What is Oil of Oregano?
Wild Mediterranean Oregano best known as a culinary herb has ancient medicinal properties. There are 40 different varieties of oregano in the world. The kind I use grows wild throughout the Mediterranean and contains high levels of Carvacrol, oregano’s primary active compound. Oregano has numerous phytochemicals that work alongside Carvacrol to fight disease, heal the body, and support vital systems.

Only high quality things our allowed in the one body we have been given, to carry us through this lifetime.
