Whether fresh or dried, Oregano has become a staple ingredient in pizza, pasta sauces, herby bread rolls, marinades, soups, and more. It lends a peppery, woody, and robust flavour and a distinctively sharp, almost minty aroma, pairing exceptionally well with tomatoes, garlic, feta cheese, parsley, and thyme. If your recipe calls for dried oregano, a drop of this oil is more than enough to elevate the flavour from so-so to sublime!
The main constituents of Oregano are carvacrol and thymol, which makes it a superstar even outside of the kitchen! If you're just now discovering the art of blending essential oils, you might wanna use Oregano to balance your creations. Its herbaceous scent acts as both an enhancer and equaliser. Keep in mind though that this oil has a pretty high phenol content so limit yourself to one to two drops when inhaling or diffusing.
Oregano is also surprisingly useful at home and is best known for its cleansing properties. If you're trying to go green, swap your commercial cleaners with a mix of Oregano essential oil, lemon oil, white vinegar, and water. You can also make your own surface spray by adding 10 drops of Oregano oil to 500ml spray bottle filled with water.
Do you want fresh-smelling clothes even without fabric softener? Try adding Oregano essential oil into your laundry! This oil also works great as a natural hand sanitiser, just make sure to dilute with your favourite carrier oil before applying topically.
