Oregano (Oshadhi) 10ml

Oreganum vulgareOregano (Oreganum vulgare)


This is a pure therapeutic quality aromatherapy essential oil produced using wild-crafted plants and traditional methods from France and is obtained from the whole plant.

Prized for centuries for its healing qualities, oregano has a powerful antibacterial action. The essential oil is traditionally used to treat complaints as diverse as indigestion and diarrhoea, insect bites, earaches, rheumatism and coughs.

The Plant


A member of the mint family, this aromatic, culinary herb, sometimes called wild marjoram, originates from hilly, Greek countryside, but is now grown around the world.

The Essential Oil


The pale yellow oil is produced by steam distillation of the fresh oregano leaves. It has a spicy peppery aroma with a hint of camphor.

What is it good for


  • Oregano contains compounds that have been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria - Such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. The oil can also help to relieve urinary tract infections.
  • Helps fight fungal infections - The essential oil has been shown to inhibit the growth of Candida albicans, the fungus that causes oral thrush, canker sores, skin rashes, and athlete's foot.and also inhibits the fungi that cause nail infections.
  • Relieves menstrual cramps - Its analgesic action can ease menstrual cramps and other abdominal pains.
  • Clears sinuses - A few drops of the oil on a tissue or in steam inhalation can help to clear blocked sinuses and loosen phlegm.
  • As an antibacterial wash - Add 8-10 drops to an unscented liquid soap for an antibacterial handwash.
  • In a diffuser - Add 2-4 drops to a diffuser to ease congestion.
  • Safe Usage - Dilute well before use (less than 1 per cent). avoid using in pregnancy, when breastfeeding, and in children under seven years old.

Blends


Blends well with Rosemary, Cypress, Tea tree, Lavender, Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, and chamomile essential oils.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in a good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils, however, is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
