Oil of Wild Oregano is one of Nature’s most potent fighters.
It contains powerful biogenic volatile compounds, namely Carvacrol and Thymol which are oxygenated monoterpenes.
These are the main two components that make up the essential oil, the defence mechanism of the plant.
These components are what reduce the abiotic stress of the plant, and defend it against herbivores, and pathogens.
Much like it is fighting off a “cold”.
Carvacrol and Thymol have been extensively studied and have been found to have several therapeutic qualities.
Carvacrol and thymol are very powerful compounds on their own but the therapeutic effects are greater when they are working together.
Like they do in the Oregano plant.
However there’s a problem with the way the many Oregano Oil products are made.
It all depends on its source.
