Properties and Usage
Oregano is a powerful anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-oxidant, anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory and immune-stimulant.
Used for arthritis, rheumatism, respiratory infectious diseases, infections, tuberculosis and digestive problems. Helps heal psoriasis, eczema, athlete’s foot, flu and other infectious ailments. Further, it can be used to treat bacterial infections like E Coli, Giardiasis and food poisoning. It relieves congestion. Certain studies reveal that it is as powerful a painkiller as the best ones in the market, with the added benefit that it is without the side effects. Oregano Oil, being sedative in nature, calms down allergen hyper-sensitivity.
Topical: Dilute 1 part Oregano to 4 parts carrier oil and apply 1-2 drops on location or neat as in Raindrop Technique. Apply to Vita Flex points.
Oregano should be used very diluted. Test on the skin in a small area to be sure it is not irritating. If it is, then dilute it more. It's usually fairly safe on the bottoms of feet. I've not used Oregano anywhere but on the bottoms of feet on in a back massage with sufficient carrier oil to avoid irritation.
Inhalation: Diffuse - can be irritating
Internal: Oregano is Generally regarded as safe (GRAS) to take as a dietary supplement. This is a "hot" oil; dilution may be necessary.

Dr. Hull's Pain
1. Oregano (undiluted) got rid of the mole I was troubled with. I applied it with a toothpick dipped into the oil, and it still irritated the surrounding skin, but I was able to help that by applying lanolin around the mole first to protect the skin right next to the mole. The mole went through stages: changed colors from dark to light, wept blood or pus, even smelled pungent at one point. The spot has totally healed now (3 months later) without a trace of the mole!
2. I used a toothpick to apply Oregano (undiluted) on a *bad* looking mole (or wart - not sure what it was). I treated it morning and night, and in about 3 days, I could see tiny black spots. Over time, the mole got scruffier and raised up more. The black spots gradually flaked off, but more appeared, and I've heard that with warts, there is a mother wart that feeds the others, so the idea is to kill the virus in the mother wart so all the wart will go away. These black spot grew like hair on a man's beard, and when I tried to pluck them out, they would bleed, so I left them alone and they eventually rubbed off when they were ready to. More black spots kept appearing, would grown and then rub off, and all the while the mole was shrinking. This cycled over and over again - over 10 times until finally, the mole was hardly noticeable and I basically forgot about treating it. Oregano is the main oil I used, but sometimes I used Frankincense and sometimes Lavender.
3. My husband has battled ringworm off and on since he was a child. Within 3 days of taking Oregano oil diluted with olive oil in a capsule, he is virtually clear of ringworm. I just want to cry typing this! - Lynsey
Oregano can cause irritation of skin and mucus membranes if not diluted.
Avoid eye contact. In case of accidental contact, put a few drops of any pure vegetable oil in the eye. Water will not adequately dilute the oil. We’ve never known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your doctor if necessary.
