North American Herb & Spice - Oil of Oregano Oreganol - 0.45 oz.

North American Herb & Spice Oil of Oregano Oreganol promotes a healthy immune system.This is the true wild oregano oil P73, a blend of edible species of wild oregano grown on natural mineral rich soils. This growing condition along with our dedication to a chemical and alcohol free extraction is the reason P73 Oreganol oil has a unique chemical profile, which is ideal for human consumption. This same oregano species can be grown elsewhere and not have the same effect of the P73, it is truly one of a kind. Oreganol P73 can be used either internally or topically. Safe for everyday use.

Oregano/Wild Marjoram
Parts used and where grown

Oregano is an aromatic perennial herb that can grow to about two feet in height. It is native to the Mediterranean region but is cultivated worldwide. In addition to European oregano, there are several types of related species, including Greek/Turkish oregano (Origanum onites) and Mexican oregano (Lippia graveolens, Lippa palmeri). These should not be considered substitutes for true oregano, though they may have similar properties. The leaves as well as the volatile oil of these various species are used medicinally, but must be carefully distinguished as they are quite different.

Historical or traditional use
The name Oreganum is the contraction of two Greek words, oros meaning mountain and ganos meaning joy. Together the words suggest the beauty that oregano lends to the fields and hilltops on which it grows. Oregano was used extensively by the Greeks for conditions ranging from convulsions to heart failure. Nineteenth-century American Eclectic physicians (doctors who recommended herbal medicines) employed oregano as both a general tonic and to promote menstruation.

Active constituents
This dried herb contains several constituents, including volatile oil (up to 3%), such as carvacrol, thymol, and borneol, plus flavonoids, rosmarinic acid, triterpenoids (e.g. ursolic and oleanolic acid), sterols, and vitamin A and vitamin C. The thymol and carvacrol contents in oregano are responsible for its antimicrobial and antifungal effects. A test tube study demonstrated that oil of oregano, and carvacrol in particular, inhibited the growth of Candida albicans far more effectively than a commonly employed antifungal agent called calcium magnesium caprylate. Clinical studies are still needed to confirm these actions in humans.

In addition to its anti-fungal action, and according to the results of another test tube study from Australia, oregano oil has a strong anti-microbial action against a wide number of bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Salmonella enterica, and Staphylococcus aureus. Other test tube studies have shown that oregano from the Mexican (Lippia) species was more effective than the prescription medication tinidazol in inhibiting the parasite giardia (Giardia duodenalis). In another test tube study, volatile oils of oregano, thyme, cinnamon, and cumin were individually able to stop the growth of another food-borne pathogen called Aspergillus parasiticus. Higher concentrations of these volatile oils were also able to stop the production of aflatoxin, a potent poison from the food moldAspergillus. Together these facts suggest the volatile oils in oregano used during food processing have an important role in preventing the spoilage of food and in reducing the risk of ingesting harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Again, these actions have not yet been confirmed by human clinical trials. The German Commission E does not approve oregano for any medical indication.

How much is usually taken?
Dried or fresh leaf of oregano can be made into a tea by steeping 1 to 2 teaspoons (5 to 10 grams) in hot water for ten minutes. This tea can be consumed three times a day. The oil (50% or greater dilution) may be applied topically twice a day to areas affected by athlete’s foot or other fungal infections. The affected area should be covered by the oil with each application. The safety of the internal use of the oil has not been well studied and should be used with caution or after consulting with a healthcare professional.

Are there any side effects or interactions?
Oregano leaf is very safe. The German Commission E and American Herbal Products Association both state there are no known risks with oregano leaf; neither of these references mentions oregano oil.

Due to the lack of human research and the highly concentrated nature of oregano volatile oil, there is potential for harm from its use; therefore, until its internal use in humans has been proven safe, it should taken with caution if not recommended by a healthcare professional. Volatile oils are generally considered contraindicated in pregnancy as they likely reach the baby and may cause harm. Topically, the volatile oil of oregano may be moderately irritating to skin and can be a potent mucous membrane irritant. It should not be applied topically to mucous membranes in greater than a 1% concentration. Children less than two years of age and people with damaged or very sensitive skin should not use the oil topically.

North American Herb and Spice Mission
North American Herb and Spice is not only to educate the public on the powers of raw whole foods, but to create a morale standard for the way we nourish our bodies. Our beliefs intertwine with movements across the globe that advocate the conservation of our natural resources and maintain the delicate balance of nature. For this we align ourselves and support causes that set a high morale standard for the respect of nature and our health. We are opposed to the use of genetically modified organisms in our food. We believe in the power of raw foods, and the power that uncooked vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and enzymes posses. We believe that nature intended for our bodies to depend on natural-source vitamins and minerals, not synthetics. It is these among other ideals that have fueled our pursuit for a happier and healthier human race.

Wild handpicked spices such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone of our product line. The phenolic compounds found in these spices have been revered since antiquity for their powerful effects. These whole, raw spices are steam distilled using the same processes used for generations, capturing the concentrated essential oil at often astounding ratios. These concentrated spice oils are then emulsified in extra virgin olive oil at the perfect ratio for power and palatability. Through this proprietary process invented by our founder Ms. Gray, the spice extract market in the United States was revived after problems with adulteration hindered its growth in the early 1950s. The end result was the purest, most powerful spice extracts made from the purest ingredients free from pesticides, chemicals, and solvents.

Wild oregano is handpicked by villagers in the most remote mountainous regions of the Mediterranean. This ensures the impeccable purity and quality of the essential oils we provide. When the wild spice and herbs are steam distilled to extract the powerful essential oils, it is done with pure, underground spring waters. This is a technique used by the indigenous peoples of the region for centuries. After the steam distillation process is complete, the essential oils are then tested to ensure the phytochemical markers are within our expectations. When the essential oils are emulsified, it is in organic extra virgin olive oil, which by itself possesses powerful nutritive properties. We never adulterate our products with fillers, chemicals, or solvents. North American Herb and Spice’s early challenges have led to the development of not only the most unique variety of products in the world, but also a standard for quality second to none.

North American Herb and Spice History
North American Herb and Spice was founded in 1999 by Judy Kay Gray, MS with the idea that nourishment from raw whole foods is the key to maintaining optimal health. Today those founding ideals serve as the foundation for more than 130 unique products, formulations that are highly nourishing and naturally powerful. Throughout the years North American Herb and Spice has exemplified quality in all the ingredients used to formulate its products. From the remote mountains of the Mediterranean to the valleys of the Amazon rainforest, North American Herb and Spice has sourced the finest fruits, herbs, and spices in the world. Wild handpicked spices such as the oregano we use in Oreganol P73 are the cornerstone of our product line.

did not realize that it is not pure oregano oil. It is very diluted.

I purchased this for 2 complaints: acne and psoriasis. I have tried many things over the years for these 2 problems with no resolution. So far, it hasn't touched the psoriasis, but yes, it does seem to have helped the acne! I took 2 drops under the tongue several times a day for a few weeks, and I apply it topically to my face at least once a day. (you get used to the smell and taste but it takes a few days!). I am happy to say that acne seems to finally be under control...and it didn't take that long. I will be a life-long user of this stuff if it continues to do this for me where so many other products have failed - I don't care if I do smell like an Italian shop!
