A: Oregano has no significant quantity of oil. Anything labelled “Oreganao Oil” is an oil infused with oregano.
Q: How much is too much oregano oil for an adult male?
Oregano oil has natural compounds like carvacrol, thymol, menthol and dozens of others that are responsible for the pungency and medicinal effects of oreganol. I use it when I’m sick since it has proven anti-microbial properties. It’s a type of mint. I usually try not to exceed 5 drops a day out of those tiny essential oil bottles when I’m ill. How much is too much though?
A: Oregano essential oil from Origanum vulgare has a recorded acute oral LD50 of 1.85g/kg. This means that half of the test subjects administered 1.85 grams of essential oil per kilogram of body weight died. This is not a complete determination of toxicity.
Q: Is oil of Oregano safe for cats to take internally?
My mother had given my cat 2 drops of oregano oil to make cat about 5 minutes ago to help her stop coughing. Is it safe, and what are the effects. Please help i need to know. And are there any things i can do if the situation is serious?
A: I’ve studied the chemistry of oils, and I can tell you with certainty that oil of Oregano is highly toxic to cats.
I don’t know if two drops is dangerous, but the oil is very potent, so it could be dangerous. I do know of other phenolic essential oils where two drops would be life threatening to a cat.
Please phone a vet or animal poisons information for professional advice.
As a rule of thumb, consider ALL pure essential oils as toxic for cats. A few are safe, but many are very dangerous.
There are some ‘alternative’ cat products that contain oil of oregano, but it is in trace amounts. These products are applied to the skin, and are associated with skin problems, even in trace amounts. Taking two drops of pure essential oil by mouth is a large dose for a human!
Please call the vet or poisons centre quickly – when a cat has been poisoned, quick treatment can make the difference between surviving and dying. With many poisons, by the time you can see the cat is sick, it is too late.
I hope your cat gets through this without incident!

Q: can i take or oregano oil right after taking a probiotic?
so i just took a probiotic and i was wondering if i can take oregano oil right after it? and wat happens if you get a lil bit of water in the oregano oil in the bottle? is it still safe to take it?
A: Although oregano oil is said to preserve good bacterial I wouldn’t take them right together just in case. I take my oregano oil in the morning and my probiotic in the afternoon or evening.
Getting the water in there will just shorten the life of the product due to potential contamination. If you use the oil daily you will likely finish it before anything could come of the contamination.
Q: Does oregano oil help bladder infections?
I have had a bladder infection for four months now, with no help from prescribed antibiotics. I am looking to find a different way to cure this, and am sick of being miserable! I read somewhere that Oregano Oil acts as a natural antibiotic. Has anyone used this to cure a bladder infection to this extent? How much is a helpful dose? Any tips or suggestions at all will be greatly appreiciated! But please do keep in mind, this is an well developed infection, so no “take at first symptom” suggestions please.
A: Both oregano oil and garlic contain natural antibiotics, and I encourage you to get them in your diet, but that’s not what will cure bladder infections. It is QUITE TELLING if your MD prescribed antibiotics for you and it hasn’t stopped the bladder infection. You might want to read this:
Please note that many nurses and other health care workers will tell you antibiotics are the “only” thing that can cure a bladder infection. They are just preaching the protocol of conventional western medicine.
However, a word of caution in your case. Bladder infections can be serious because they can turn into kidney infections. If you’ve had a bladder infection for four months that’s quite a long time, although maybe your case was mismanaged. If you are seeing a physician it might be a good idea to continue to do so, but DO NOT expect most MDs to agree that cranberry juice can be of any real value for people suffering with a bladder infection.

A: I’ve actually heard that garlic is good for ringworms too but it stings a little as well. My aunt used to use it but she said it doesn’t sting to bad so it should be ok for a baby. He/she might still cry cause it’s not comfortable though.

Q: Do you know the process and the neccesary equipment for getting the oil of oregano?
I live in a rich oregano area in Mexico. I know about the profits you can make processing this plant. Unfortunetely, I am not a Chemistry Specialist and I don’t know the exact process, and wich materials or equipment to use in order to extract the oil from the plant.
Thanks in advance.
A: Oregano oil is extracted from the dried, flowering tops of the herb by steam distillation.
The main chemical components are carvacrol, thymol, p-cymene, cis-ocimene, caryophyllene and linalool.
Steam distillation is the most common method of extracting essential oils. Many old-time distillers favor this method for most oils, and say that none of the newer methods produces better quality oils. Steam distillation is done in a still. Fresh, or sometimes dried, botanical material is placed in the plant chamber of the still, and pressurized steam is generated in a separate chamber and circulated through the plant material. The heat of the steam forces the tiny intercellular pockets that hold the essential oils to open and release them. The temperature of the steam must be high enough to open the pouches, yet not so high that it destroys the plants or burns the essential oils. As they are released, the tiny droplets of essential oil evaporate and, together with the steam molecules, travel through a tube into the still’s condensation chamber. As the steam cools, it condenses into water. The essential oil forms a film on the surface of the water. To separate the essential oil from the water, the film is then decanted or skimmed off the top. The remaining water, a byproduct of distillation, is called floral water, distillate, or hydrosol. It retains many of the therapeutic properties of the plant, making it valuable in skin care for facial mists and toners. In certain situations, floral water may be preferable to pure essential oil, such as when treating a sensitive individual or a child, or when a more diluted treatment is required.
Another method of extracting essential oils is cold-pressed expression, or scarification. It is used to obtain citrus fruit oils such as bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, lime, mandarin, orange, and tangerine oils. In this process, fruit rolls over a trough with sharp projections that penetrate the peel. This pierces the tiny pouches containing the essential oil. Then the whole fruit is pressed to squeeze the juice from the pulp and to release the essential oil from the pouches. The essential oil rises to the surface of the juice and is separated from the juice by centrifugation.

Q: How do you use oil of oregano in a nasal spray/neti pot?

I’m already taking it internally, but research shows it has benefits diffused in a nasal spray. I just don’t have the ratio.
A: The oil Oregano or Garlic should be ingested my mouth a couple times a day. It is not safe to put any oil in the nose due to aspirating issues ( choking ) You can add this to a drink or just drink it just as it is ( if you can stand to do so )
These two do help a lot if done right. My sister uses Garlic oil every time she gets an infection and it helps every time..
