Oregano is a herbaceous medicinal plant from the Mint Family that is also used in the culinary arts. There are around 36 different varieties of the Oregano species. In Greek, the name "Oregano" means "Delight of the Mountains". Recent scientific studies show that Oregano is a powerful anti-viral medicine that can be used as protection against this viral pandemic.

Oregano is a powerful anti-viral, anti-bacterial medicine that is great for the common cold, flu, pneumonia, swollen glands and infections. She is a wonderful environmental disinfectant. For the lungs, Oregano helps with asthma, whooping cough, bronchitis, sinus infections, and a sore throat. She is a digestive aid that can be used for vomiting, diarrhea, intestinal parasites, and other internal infections. Oregano is a stimulant for the liver and spleen, and is good for jaundice. She supports the heart and is a cholesterol and blood pressure balancer. Oregano is great for pain, muscle aches, and arthritic and rheumatic conditions. For the skin, Oregano is extremely HOT, but when layered over cooler essences, can be used for acne, bites, stings, wounds, psoriasis, fungal infections, parasites, scabies, lice, ulcers, and skin infections.

Energetically speaking, Oregano is so powerful that she can help psychopathic conditions, extreme trauma, and other mental imbalances. She helps as a great supporter of forgiveness, acceptance, and moving forward in unconditional Love in all of life's experiences. When feeling overwhelmed with life, unable to digest the current situation, seeing one's shadow, or struggling with self-destructive behaviors, Oregano is that tough Love that holds your hand through challenging life experiences so that you can find your way to the other side. Work with Oregano in order to move through positive change, let go of trauma, and bring healing Light to any perceived darkness.
