The number one way oil of oregano is used today is to treat funguses and candida. For a lot of us, it’s very easy to develop things like candida in your body. Common candida symptoms include getting a white coat on your tongue or developing different types of infections. Oil of oregano has been proven in medical studies to kill off candidiasis, that bacteria or fungus that can grow within your system, and thus works as an antifungal.
oregano as a natural treatment for toenail fungus. it can take several months to clear up fully, but this will work.
So again, for a toenail fungus or as a way to fight candida the natural way, you can put oregano oil on topically. I don’t recommend taking it internally more than 10 days in a row, but you can use oil of oregano, four drops, four times daily internally, but only for 10 days and not longer, because it’s a natural form of medicine.
Another one of oregano oil uses is to kill off bacteria. If you’re looking for natural cold remedies or want to prevent the flu, this acts very, very quickly at killing off bad bacteria and viruses within your system. In fact, there was a groundbreaking study published in Microbial Ecology in Health and Disease recently which demonstrated that oil of oregano kills off E.coli, one of those bad forms of bacteria that can cause food poisoning and cause you to get sick.
3. Anti-Parasite & Antiviral
Many people, especially when you travel overseas, you can come down with a parasite. Oil of oregano is an anti-parasitic as well, so it kills off parasites.
I don’t recommend using oil of oregano internally much unless you’re sick or doing a temporary cleanse for 10 days, but you can diffuse it around your home. You can make it as part of a personal care product. In fact, you can make homemade mouthwash with oregano oil, and it helps clean your teeth and serves as a natural remedy for bad breath and gingivitis.
