Some things are said to cure everything but death. Oregano is one of those things.
A perennial herb that’s actually part of the mint family, oregano is commonly used in cooking. I often add it to sauces and spice rubs. But it also has a long medicinal history.
Ancient Greeks used it for common illnesses like the cold and the flu. Folk healers have used it for just about everything from skin conditions to respiratory ailments. The oil extracted from oregano leaves is often used topically. Dried leaves are often made into tea or taken in capsules. You can also add some to your bath.
Yet, some do remain skeptical of the healing power of oregano. Many uses still haven’t been studied in-depth. What follows is a comprehensive list of everything oregano can possibly be used for, including some uses that are still in doubt.
Generally speaking, trying oregano can’t hurt, but if you do have concerns, talk to your doctor.
