Oregano essential oil has many therapeutic uses.  It contains strong immune-enhancing properties and supports the respiratory system.  Whenever I feel my immune system needs extra support, I immediately take a veggie cap with 4 drops each of Oregano and Thieves essential oils.  I’ll also rub a blend of Oregano and Thieves oils mixed with a carrier oil on my feet when colds are hitting friends and family and my immune system could use a little boost.  Oregano is one of my go to immune boosting oils, and it is also a great addition to my no-pasta meat sauce!  I love a good red meat sauce.  We don’t eat grains in our house so we typically have this sauce over spaghetti squash or steamed broccoli.  Before using essential oils I made this sauce with regular dried oregano – since adding Oregano essential oil to the sauce, it has become a family favorite.  The Oregano essential oil really punches up the flavor and gives it more zest.
