I first learned about the power of oregano around the year 2010. Back then, I was doing some research on essential oils when a Google search turned up a webpage where people were discussing the health benefits of oregano oil. And it was getting rave reviews. One guy said, “I stopped getting flu and cold completely after using oregano oil. The thing is sort of like a miracle product.”

I bought a few bottles of oregano oil and started using as directed: 2 drops in water or tea every day. The results were fantastic. I felt generally stronger, and not only that, when the flu season came around, and everyone started dropping with the flu, I didn’t. This was how I learned about the strong immune boosting and antiviral properties of oregano.

Apparently, the oregano oil has some chemical compounds that kills the flu virus when it enters the body, or it strengthens the immune system to the point where it is able to destroy the flu virus upon contact. And who knows what other viruses it can kill? Covid? HIV? I’m not sure. Conclusive trials have not been conducted to prove oregano’s strong antiviral power, but those who use it, know about it.

Oregano is listed as a powerful antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial. It contains the potentially healing compounds carvacrol, thymol, and terpinene. Further, oregano has strong antioxidant properties.

Personally, I use oregano is a prophylaxis against the flu, covid, and many other viruses, although I cannot say that oregano cures or treats any of these viral infections because it lacks conclusive scientific proof.

There are several ways to get the goodness of oregano into your body. You can purchase the oil on Amazon, dilute two drops in water or tea and drink it, purchase the softgel capsules and drink two every night (or as directed), or you can simply make tea out of the dried oregano leaves found in the supermarket.

If you cook with dried oregano leaves, it’s likely to have the same health and medical benefits as other forms of taking it, although the quantity consumed in food might sometimes not be enough to produce the medicinal benefits as drinking the capsules.

I prefer to swallow two whole oregano capsules after dinner, and that’s it. It’s simple, effective, and powerful, but the choice is yours what form of oregano to use, if you choose to use it.

Where can You Get Oregano?

Oregano in its various forms can be found in stores, pharmacies, and supermarkets around the world. You can also find them on Amazon.

Please note that most oregano products sold on Amazon only ship within the United States, so if your Amazon shipping address is set outside of the United States, it will show as unavailable. If you live outside of the USA, you can get around this hurdle by using the address of a friend or relative in the United States who can receive the product and then forward it to you.

If you don’t have a friend or relative in the United States whom you can rely on, we recommend you use a freight forwarding service such as USA to Me Mail and Package Forwarding Services.
