The Benefits Of Oregano



The name oregano derives from the Greek words “oros,” meaning mountain, and “ganos” meaning joy. Greeks and Romans would crown brides and grooms with laurels made of oregano. In ancient Greece the herb was revered for its warming, stimulating, and relaxing effects on the lung and reproductive organs especially. It remains an excellent choice for helping to relieve menstrual cramping and delayed menses caused by cold.


It is a safe, gentle, but effective herb for treating colds in infants and small children, as well as treating stomach gastritis in small children. And does NOT destroy the good bacteria of the gut.

Oregano has also been found to contain 42 times the antioxidants of apples, 12 times more than oranges and 4 times more than blueberries. One teaspoon of dried oregano will fulfil 14% of your daily vitamin K requirements.
