Traditional aromatherapy uses:

  • Traditionally in aromatherapy treatments oregano essential oil is associated with the following therapeutic properties: analgesic, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiseptic, antiviral, bactericidal, carminative, emmenagogue, energizing, expectorant, fungicidal, immune support, rubefacient, warming

 

  • Qualified aromatherapists may use oregano essential oil for common complaints such as:

 

 

  • respiratory conditions: acute respiratory infections

 

 

  • How we use it:

 

As oregano essential oil is a skin and mucous membrane irritant it should only be used at a very low dilution. Please see safety notes below.

 

  • For respiratory infections: inhale on its own (1 drop from a tissue) or blended depending on the severity and type of the condition; we like it blended with some Lemon essential oil e.g. 1 drop of oregano and 5 drops of lemon diffused in a sick room or inhaled from a personal inhaler.

Safety considerations:

 

Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young warn that oregano essential oil is contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding and that it may be embryotoxic.

They indicate a moderate risk for mucous membrane irritation and skin irritation.

Furthermore, they warn that the oil may inhibit blood clotting and pose a drug interaction hazard.

Tisserand and Young recommend a maximum dermal use level of 1.1%. They advise not to use topically on children age 2 or younger or for those with hypersensitive/diseased/damaged skin.

Reading Tis

serand and Young's full oils safety profile is recommended. [Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014), 376.]
