Oregano Oil

Hippocratic EssentialsTM presents Greek Oregano Essential Oil from the valley of Thessaly, in Central Greece.

Greek Oregano (Origanum Vulgare ssp. hirtum) is distilled to extract the essential oil (where a high concentration of the herb’s active constituents are found) using steam distillation procedure.

Oil of oregano contains two powerful compounds called carvacrol and thymol, both of which have been shown to have strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Oregano’s oil is primarily made of carvacrol, while the plant’s leaves contain a variety of antioxidant compounds, such as phenols, triterpenes, rosmarinic acid, ursolic acid and oleanolic acid.
