Oregano Essential Oil Natural Antibiotic

Oil of oregano is nature’s antibiotic. The powerful antioxidants in oregano oil have antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, making oregano oil a beneficial natural alternative to many types of traditional medicine.

Switching to a focus on natural choices, rather than synthetic and toxic products that are dangerous to our systems has been a huge shift in our family. During and after the recovery of our boys from autism we continue to seek out ways to combat normal health challenges without the use of harmful side effects. The change in the immune system has been nothing short of amazing. But please ensure you are using only the best and purest essential oils. Contact me to know what I trust and use.
