This Week's Most Popular Pin from Pinterest:
Oil of Oregano is enormously effective in quickly eliminating yeast or fungal problems that lead to fat gain, eczema, acne, poor performance, and chronic fatigue. It can stop bad bugs in their tracks, and is also an incredibly rich source of iron and calcium. By simply putting a few drops under the tongue or in a glass of water on a daily basis, oil of oregano can also be used as a topical anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, and anti-fungal. Oregano has been proven to be an amazing, simple and effective tool to keep your immune system at 100%, all year long.
This Wild Mediterranean Oil of Oregano is mixed in a very unique and highly effective and absorbable 7:1 almond:oregano oil ratio. Our oil has a natural carvacrol level of 80.12% to 80.46% (the primary indicator of quality) and is harvested from Turkey. This certified organic, wild-harvested oregano ensures that you are getting all of the beneficial compounds that oregano has to offer, without any synthetic ingredients.
