Default Oil of Oregano

I have been using oil of oregano both orally and topically for about a year now. It's helped clear up yeast infections and I feel like it helps shorten colds. It's the one item I always want in my medicine cabinet.

Has anyone else used it? Why do you use it? How has it helped?

Oregano oil is great! Good for you! I don't use it though because one of the downfalls of the oil is that it can interfere with iron absorbtion and since I'm prone to anemia, I avoid it. Otherwise, it's great against candida, viruses etc...

It's good for sinus infections, too. Occasionally, I take the capsules since they are less expensive than the liquid. I combine this with a highly diluted apple cider vinegar nasal flush using a bulb syringe. My greenish nasal discharge went away in a few days.

How interesting! I have been using oregano juice too but did not know about it interfering with iron absorption. I too have been anemic, but taking extra iron seems to cure it for me. I used to have chronic sinus troubles too, including being allergic to morning. I would have to blow my nose a bunch of times for the first 2-3 hours after waking up, and now I have nothing going on whatsoever. I am convinced it was the oregano juice that did it.

I just add a little to my water, and I put minute amounts in my drinking wate dispenser and coffeemaker for the dual purpose of keeping algae from growing in there --- it really does work for that too!

It helped my mom with the radiation burns when she was getting radiation therapy. I got rid of my problems with yeast.
