This is pretty powerful oil. Seems as strong as the more expensive brands out there. I use it with coconut oil to dilute and avoid the burning sensation.

First, I must say Bulk Apothecary's Essential Oils are just what they are described to be in their Description. This is for all the Essential Oils I have bought from them in the past.
I have used different qualities of Oregano for years and years, to kill Strep throat, ear infections and germs. ORIGANUM is more powerful then any Oregano I have used. It tastes and smells the same as Oregano but with a strong kick to it. I have some rare parasites that Oregano did not get rid of. I took one taste of Origanum and I can feel the little buggers pull back. I am adding this oil to all my parasite fighting blends.

I am very new to aromatherapy, but I mixed a batch of lotions, Shea butter, Vit E, and Carrot EO and put Rosemary and Origanum EO into that blend. I have rheumatoid arthritis and major problems with my right shoulder. I apply this lotion in the mornings for its stimulant and analgesic effects, and it's so refreshing! I am just beginning to apply it to lesions I have on my upper back from contact dermatitis from the pads of my TENS unit. I did that because origanum is an antiseptic. Remember, I am just starting my aromatherapy life, so RESEARCH for YOJRSELF before following any of my practices!
