Wild Oil of Oregano Usage:

Wild oil of oregano can be used both internally and externally. The oil should be kept away from the eyes and mucous membranes, as well as sensitive skin areas. Children under the age of six should not take the oil internally. Children may be treated by diluting the oregano oil in olive oil and rubbing it on the soles of the feet or other areas of the body.

The adage ‘less is more’ applies to the use of oregano oil. It is extremely potent and should be taken according to directions. Recommended dosages should be followed. Use minimum amounts to observe the effects prior to taking larger dosages. For internal use, only take the Mediterranean species of wild oregano that has been mixed with a high quality olive oil. Other oregano oils are often ineffective and can be dangerous. Many of these oils are mislabelled and, in fact, are not the true oregano. The pure essential oil is far too strong to use externally or internally. For safety, use a brand pre-mixed with olive oil.

Carvacrol and Wild Oregano Essential Oil Facts

A lot of attention has been given to the predominant phenol, Carvacrol, which is a large and important component of wild Oregano oil. Depending on the quality of the Oregano, part of the plant distilled, expertise of the distiller and yearly variations in growing conditions, Carvacrol can be found ranging from approximately 30-87% in traditionally distilled oils. Due to the attention Carvacrol has received and the unfortunate thinking in Europe and America that more is better, we see products on the market boasting unrealistically high levels of Carvacrol. Distillers have found that by adding Carvacrol to the water during distillation that they can increase the Carvacrol percentage without it being detected in Gas Chromatography (GC) testing. Another method is to fractionate the oil by “boiling off” certain other chemical components of the oil to make the Carvacrol percentage higher. Unfortunately this adulterated or “standardized” oil is not nearly as effective for therapeutic application because the delicate synergy created by nature is thrown out of equilibrium or parts of the puzzle are missing. Lab testing done on the efficacy of pure Carvacrol for destroying pathogens has shown it to be half as effective as pure, unadulterated Oregano oil . The key to Oregano oil’s amazing power is the synergistic combination of naturally occurring chemicals in the ratio in which nature produced them. Carvacrol’s importance may be overestimated by media articles which neglect to mention the other critical chemical components of Oregano oil and their relationship with each other.

Unfortunately, the ” more is better” mind set has provided distillers with the incentive to increase Carvacrol levels, at whatever cost to the end result, in order to cater to demand from this uninformed sector of the marketplace. The researchers and professors and even the good distillers find all this highly amusing as they know that the real curative powers of nature lie in the naturally distilled oil. Lab testing on Oregano’s antibacterial, anti fungal, antiviral, anti-cancer etc. properties has been conducted with naturally distilled, best quality Oregano oil which falls into an average range of 62-85% Carvacrol.

When you consider that the final product has to be well diluted with olive oil to make a safe and therapeutically effective product, differences in Carvacrol percentages mean very little. Each manufacturer blends at a different strength/ratio of olive oil to Oregano oil. The final Carvacrol percentage in the bottle is likely to be in the 5-15% range. Again, if a manufacturer claims that an ‘extra strength’ product (typically 40-50% Oregano oil) is better by virtue of its strength, they are again mistaken and falling back on the “bigger is better” mentality. The body would rather deal with more of a correctly blended product than an extra strength product. The olive oil greatly aids the body to assimilate the Oregano oil. Pure Oregano essential oil is very caustic and unsafe for therapeutic use. Any knowledgeable herbalist will tell you that a small dosage of a given herb may have a healing effect where a larger dose of the same herb would have the opposite effect. More is not better!

Another thing to watch for is when manufacturers claim Carvacrol counts in round numbers such as 75%, 80% or 85%. GC testing is always done in hundredths i.e. 71.28%. Please ask to see the GC certificate. If you see a round number, chances are it is a counterfeit GC or an adulterated/standardized product. Naturally this does not apply to manufacturers who may claim “not less than 65% Carvacrol” or “Carvacrol between 60-70%”.

Usage of Wild Oil of Oregano

Oil of Oregano will kill any kind of “germ”. Proof of this statement can be found in the Quarterly Review of Biology, March 1998 and the Indian Journal of Experimental Biology, June 1977, among other authoritative publications.

Among the natural antioxidants, oregano oil is one of the most powerful. It protects cells from free radical damage in the same way it prolongs the shelf life of foods. Take a few drops daily under the tongue to slow the effects of aging and maintain healthy cell structure.

At Hedd Wyn Essentials we are firmly committed to providing the best of what Nature has to offer in its original composition, as nature designed it. In our products, you will find essential oils, herbs and foods which are wildcrafted or grown using organic methods of cultivation, free of chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers.

Our Certified Organic wildcrafted Oil of Oregano is made from wild Mediterranean Oregano, picked by hand and naturally steam distilled. No additives are used in the process and nothing is taken away. Our cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is Certified Organic. This costs us more but makes a much safer and better tasting product for you, the customer.

Sometimes we are asked if our Oil of Oregano is standardized. We can proudly say “No, it is not and never will be.” Why? Because standardization involves alteration or adulteration and in the case of Oregano essential oil this does not benefit the consumer. Let us explain.

A lot of research has been done on Oregano and its chief chemical constituent, a phenol called Carvacrol. Carvacrol is a powerful antiseptic. Oregano oil contains 3 other main classes of chemicals which act synergistically to provide the antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, analgesic, anti-venom and antiparasitic qualities of Oregano oil.

As powerful as Carvacrol is, it is not the whole story. This has been proven in lab testing. Pure Carvacrol is only half as effective as pure Oregano oil in inhibiting fungal and bacterial growth.

In order to standardize Oregano oil, something has to be added or taken away. Carvacrol has been chosen as the ingredient to standardize. Carvacrol levels are increased by adding Carvacrol to the water during distillation or afterwards to the oil or by fractionating the essential oil after distillation by “boiling off” other natural components of the oil to make the Carvacrol percentage higher in relation to what is left. In both cases the natural synergy of active constituents in the oil is put out of balance without any thought of the effect that will have on the healing properties of the end product. In fractionation, whole parts of the Oregano plant’s makeup are removed in ignorance of their function!

At Hedd Wyn Essentials , we would rather trust Mother Nature than men in laboratories. Please review the Gas Chromatography testing report on our Oregano oil. You will see that you are receiving a superior product with high natural Carvacrol levels.

Please take the time to taste our Oregano oil and compare it to other Oregano oils you have tried. Trusting your own finely tuned sense of taste and smell will tell the story quickly and eloquently.
