Words by Anny Schneider

Antibacterial very powerful and broad spectrum, this essential oil of Greek oregano very rich in carvacrol is also antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic.

It is highly effective for treating acute or chronic infectious conditions(respiratory, intestinal, cutaneous or urinary infections).

Diluted in 95% vegetable oil and applied locally, it is also neurotonic, antispasmodic, analgesic and expectorant.

⇒ Oregano compact essential oil is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, as well as for children under 6 years of age. 

⇒ It should also be avoided in case of chronic diseases (hepatitis) or autoimmune diseases (multiple sclerosis). 

Very dermocaustic, so irritating to the skin and mucous membranes, it is important to ensure that its concentration does not exceed 5% when used in anointing, friction or massage in a vegetable oil. 

The chemotype of compact oregano is very rich in carvacol, which gives it a great power of action and implies careful and careful use over a short period.

Origin of this essential oil

This organic essential oil of oregano compact from Morocco is distilled from the flowering tops of the plant.
