Oregano is one of the most potent and powerful essential oils and has been used for centuries in traditional health practices for its cleansing and immune-boosting properties.* The primary chemical components of Oregano are carvacol and thymol, both in the phenols group, which possess cleansing and antioxidant properties.* Due to its high phenol content, caution should be taken when inhaling or diffusing Oregano; only one to two drops is needed. Additionally, Oregano should be diluted with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin. One drop taken daily can help maintain healthy immune function; Oregano can be taken more frequently when seasonal threats are high or as needed to further boost immunity.* In addition to being a popular cooking spice, Oregano supports healthy digestion by promoting the secretion of digestive juices.* Oregano also acts as an enhancer and equalizer in essential oil blends and can help support healthy respiratory function when taken internally.*


  • Take one drop daily to maintain healthy immune function. *
  • Add one to two drops to a veggie capsule to support healthy respiratory function. *
  • Put one drop in place of dried oregano in spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, or on a roast.
  • Put 10 drops in a 16-ounce spray bottle with water for a surface cleaner.
