Skin Benefits of Oil of Oregano

by Karen
(Calgary, Alberta)

I have always had a problem with clogged pores and the occasional breakout. I have tried everything from peels to prescription medication. I have recently been using Oil of Oregano and have seen improvement. I first wash my face to remove dirt and makeup and then while it is still wet, I'll add 1 drop of Oil of Oregano to a small amount of cleanser. Lather and rinse. I have been happy with the improvements.

Oil of Oregano Cured My Wart Problem

Oil of oregano has cured my wart problem. Before taking it, I had at least 40 warts on my hands. It was so frustrating, I would go to the doctor every month to get them burned off and they kept coming back.

I also tried different products from the drugstore, like Freeze Away, and nothing helped. I was also getting a lot of colds, about 3 or 4 a year.

My mom told me that she had been taking Oil of Oregano now for about a year and that she hasn't had a single cold since then. So I thought I would give it a try. I took a bottle and started noticing that my warts were disappearing. After about my 3rd bottle all of my warts were gone, and they haven't returned!

I have been taking 2 capsules of Oil of Oregano every night before bed for the past year now. It has been a year and I haven't had a cold yet! Oil of oregano is so amazing. I will take it for the rest of my life.

Oil of Oregano and Cellulitis

by Heidi
(Utah)

I have a wonderful comment, and a serious question. First, I must report that taking Oil of Oregano when cellulitis flared up in my skin (this is the sixth time I've had it) worked as quick as the Cipro I've always taken in the past!

I was thrilled that this herb had the promised result. Because cellulitis is a dangerous infection that has serious complications if left untreated, I kept a close eye on it, and was prepared to see the doctor if the rash extended at all.

I have liquid Oil of Oregano, so I took five drops at a time in a glass of water, every two hours the first two days (which was too much: It gave me gas). Then I cut back to five drops in water three times per day. The rash receded within one day, and was gone in three days. I have now been taking Oil of Oregano for 11 days. I also have been wearing a compression sock on my affected leg to help circulation.

But here is my question: I'm still feeling the fatigue from the cellulitis. I want to kick this bacteria completely out of my system. I never want to get it again and I want my energy back. Is it safe to take Oil of Oregano every day - and how much? I sure would appreciate an answer.

Reply: Great to see you experienced positive results from using Oil of Oregano. Suggested Oil of Oregano dosages range from 4 - 6 drops in a glass of water, 3 - 6 times per day. While there are no documented studies on the most effective dosage, it is considered safe to use Oil of Oregano every day. People who are allergic to thyme, oregano or other spicy herbs should consult with a Physician before using Oil of Oregano.

Using Oil of Oregano on Acne

by Tony Nicholls
(Brampton, ON. Canada)

Is Oil of Oregano good for fighting acne? If do, What should be the dosage and how to use?

Reply: Acne can be caused by inflammation of the oil gland, excessive oil gland secretion, hormones, bacteria and clogged pores.

Oil of Oregano has been shown to have anti-bacterial properties. If acne is caused by a bacterial source, there is a possibility one could use Oil of Oregano to reduce the levels of bacteria.

However, this product does have a fairly strong smell and many people may want to use it on their skin should it leave a lingering odour.

You could try taking Oil of Oregano internally by placing a few drops under the tongue and letting it dissolve or by using an oil that comes in capsule form. To date, there are no published studies on using this particular oil for treating acne.

I've had success using tea tree oil on mild acne. I would place a drop of tea tree oil on a Q-tip and apply it to the blemish. I found the tea tree oil reduced the redness and the pimple appeared to shrink faster.

If your acne is severe and not responding to over-the-counter medications, I would recommend seeing a doctor or dermatologist for more appropriate treatment.

Oil of Oregano for Psoriasis


(Anonymous)

I was wondering if I can use Oil of Oregano for psoriasis. I've read people have had success with it. I get psoriasis on my face (as well as other areas ) and was wondering what's the best way to apply it?

Should it be diluted or used straight from bottle? How often should it be applied? I'm also planning to take it internally as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Pizza Ears, but can it help my pizza face???

by Jordan Nicole
(Idaho)

I've had an ear infection for over a year and after the doctors loading me up with antibiotics that I throw allergic reactions to, I had it!
A friend recommended I go see a lady who specializes in holistic healing since my body responds very well to these methods. The lady recommended Oil of Oregano diluted in extra virgin olive oil and dropped in my ear twice a day. So far after only a couple days I am seeing an improvement. I smell like a pizza but I find it amusing.

The bottle of oil was so horribly expensive though I am wondering if it can be used for my face? I have always had terribly painful breakouts that cause a lot of drainage and have swollen my lymph nodes before. I use extra virgin olive oil on my face every night to clean it and get the makeup off. This works AMAZING! My skin has never looked so great but sometimes I still do get one of those painful sores. I am wondering if a couple drops in my face olive oil would be okay, as I only see it being beneficial and I would like to get more uses out of my oregano oil.

Reply: Oil of Oregano has been shown to have anti-microbial properties. If acne breakouts are caused by a bacteria, there's a possibility it may help reduce breakouts. However, care should be taken when using Oil of Oregano near the eye area as it can cause very painful burning sensations due to its 'spicy' nature. It's not recommended to use Oil of Oregano on any open acne sores.

One of my favorite oils to use for acne is fish oils. You can use Click here to post comments

Using Oil of Oregano on Skin Tags

I have read that oil of oregano can be used to get rid of skin tags - is this true?

Reply: Skin tags are common skin growths that can typically occur in the underarms, eyelids, groin folds, and the base of the neck. Researchers are not sure what causes these benign skin growths, but some believe there may be a hereditary component.

There are currently no documented studies on using Oil of Oregano or other essential oils for removing skin tags. You can get products that contain salicylic acids (similar to wart removers like Compound W) that may help in their removal.

If you try using Oil of Oregano on skin tags you should make sure the skin isn't broken or bleeding before applying the oil. This will help reduce the risk for infection and irritation.

Oil of Oregano and Rosacea

by Jamie
(Canada)

I have had roscacea on my face for 14 years - very embarrasing. I read on a rosacea forum about success others have had with Oil of Oregano, so I tried it. It has only been 5 days, but my skin is almost completely clear and smooth. I think it will be cleared up by next week (still a little redness). I do not know if the rosacea will return if I stop taking it but boy, am I ever happy.

Using Oil of Oregano On Open Wounds

by Virginia
(Chester, VA)

My husband has an open wound in his groin area, it has been 12 months and no healing. He has been on meds for the last two weeks and in the past 6 months been on three prescriptions. He is a cancer patient, Hodgkins, and has become a diabetic. Could he use oregano oil as a treatment? A friend mentioned to me that she heard about oregano oil as a treatment for wounds.

Reply: Hi Virginia - Studies have shown that Oil of Oregano is effective against bacteria such as staph. However, I haven't found any medical research on the effects of putting Oil of Oregano on open wounds - or whether it's safe to do so. You could take Oil of Oregano as a nutritional supplement but whether or not this would be effective for a staph infection in a wound is unknown. I would contact your physician first before beginning any new dietary supplement. Good luck and I wish you and your husband all the best.
