If you’ve been keeping up with my quick tips in the Journal, you’ll know that Oregano is a superior way to boost your immune defenses! At the first sign of cold, cough or flu, combine with tea tree, clove and carrier oil and apply this fun little concoction to the bottoms of your feet every 4 hours to support the immune system. It’s one of the most exciting tricks of our essential oil combination blends. Oregano is antiviral and antibacterial making it one of nature’s natural antibiotics. Studies have shown the main chemical constituent, carvacrol, to inhibit the growth of E.Coli. This is a great oil to help support your immune system during seasonal threats. It is a “hot” oil so be sure to dilute with a carrier oil before applying topically.
