What are the health benefits of oil of oregano?

Attachment-1-10 copy.jpeg

Oil of oregano is one of my go-to herbs for supporting the immune system because of its antimicrobial properties. Make sure you pick one up with at least 75% carvecrol, the active ingredient, and be cautious of how much you use for your first time as it’s HOT – wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after use and avoid contact with eyes (and keep out of reach of children)!
