Found in Hungary, Origanum vulgare is steam distilled to produce an essential oil that’s herby and slightly spicy in aroma. Oregano is a middle note oil that blends well with Basil, Fennel, Geranium, and Pine.
Long used by the Greeks to prevent bacterial growth in food and infections of the skin, Oregano essential oil is a wonder that can be used in topical and culinary creations. For the ladies out there, if you’re experiencing regular pain and cramping caused by PMS, this essential oil can be diluted and gently massaged into the abdomen to stimulate appetite and alleviate discomfort. You can also try any one of our Moody Girl Blend products which contain this and other soothing oils. For those with a nail biting problem, you can help kick the habit by applying a small amount of Oregano combined with Coconut Oil to nails and cuticles. This not only deters biting by leaving a strong, bitter aroma, but also by acting as a anti-fungal and antibacterial. Its antibacterial properties make Oregano a good ally in combatting Athlete’s Foot as well. When added to food, it can relieve the stomach of excess gas caused by acidity.
