What is Oregano Essential Oil: Oregano oil is a highly beneficial essential oil extracted from oregano flowering tops. Oregano is a plant native to higher altitudes and normally grows in the mountains, which is how it is named “Oregano”, meaning “delight of the mountains”. While oregano is famed as a spice, oregano essential oil is a concentrated form that is widely sought after for natural remedies.  The disinfectant and antibacterial properties of oregano essential oil were first recognized in ancient Greece where it was often used for treating bacterial infections on the skin or wounds. It was also used to protect food from bacteria.  Oregano is a perennial plant that belongs to the Lamiaceae botanical family, which also includes many other culinary herbs like rosemary, mint, basil, sage, thyme and lavender. Extracted through the steam distillation of fresh oregano leaves and flowers, oregano essential oil, scientifically known as Origanum Vulgare is brimming with nature's goodness and important medicinal properties.    Oregano Essential Oil Technical data sheet:  Common name: Compact Oregano, Oregano Vulgaris Latin name: Origanum compactum Benth Appearance: Mobile liquid Color: Light yellow to brownish yellow Odor: Characteristic pungent warm spicy odor.
