dōTERRA Oregano (Food)
Extracted from the fragrant leaves of the oregano plant, Origanum vulgare, Oregano essential oil has made its way into cookbooks and cleaning cabinets. Oregano oil is one of the most versatile and powerful essential oils. Due to its high concentration of carvacol and thymol, two phenol chemicals that possess cleansing properties, Oregano is commonly used as a household cleansing agent.
Other benefits of Oregano oil can be found when preparing and eating culinary dishes. Oregano’s herbaceous flavouring can be added to appetizers, entrees, and sauces to enhance an array of savoury meals. Because of Oregano oil’s high phenol content, caution should be taken when diffusing or inhaling—only one to two drops are needed. When applied topically, Oregano oil should be diluted with dōTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil.
- Time to clean? For a quick and easy household cleaner, put 10 drops of Oregano essential oil into a 500ml spray bottle with water. Due to Oregano’s chemical makeup, Oregano oil is a powerful cleansing and purifying agent. This simple spray is great for surfaces and countertops.
- Add a little flavor to your favorite Italian cuisine with some Oregano essential oil. Oregano oil is spicy and herbaceous and will add the perfect hint of flavor to spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, roasts, and much more.

One drop of Oregano essential oil can replace one tablespoon of ground oregano.
