This oil can be used in much the same way as Marjoram. May be called Wild Marjoram or origanum oil. Like so many of the ancient food herbs, Oregano is very effective against a wide range of bacteria and fungi. Although this oil can be used as a topical analgesic and can be used to treat infections of the skin, those uses pale in comparison to the power of Oregano as an antiseptic. This oil is most widely used in a blend for the diffusor for treating respiratory infections as well as a preventative against airborne pathogens.

There is a legitimate and recognized concern about the routine use of antibiotics in livestock because they contribute to antibiotic resistance used in the treatment of people. Consumers want additive-free meats and there is disagreement over withdrawal times. A DVM with a large manufacturer of livestock feed reported that ‘There was a very good response to the use of oregano essential oils,’ . The use of Oregano essential oil reduced mortality in piglets and treatment in sows.

The development of an antiviral drug for Yellow Fever has produced impressive results. A study cited in Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials 2009, 8:8 indicate that Oreganum vulgare and Artemisia vulgaris have inhibitory effects the replication of the virus. Apparently the presence of O. vulgare and A. vulgaris essential oil in the culture medium at 11.1 ug/mL produced a 100% reduction of virus yield.

Ug is a microgram, 1/1000000 of a gram or 1/1000 of a milligram.
