AQ Essential Oil - ORIGANUM / OREGANO
ORIGANUM (Origanum Vulgare) - India. Origanum oil is steam distilled from the Oregano plant, which is a hardy, bushy perennial herb from the same family as marjoram. The oil is light yellow to reddish yellow in colour, with a characteristic herbal fragrance. Oregano was first recognised for its medical benefits as far back as ancient Greece, and its benefits were documented by writers such as Hippocrates and Aristotle, who used it as a strong antiseptic for the respiratory system, as well as for wounds, ulcers and burns.
Oregano is believed to be one of the most important antiseptic oils used in aromatherapy due to its high proportion of phenol, giving it strong antibacterial properties. It is also believed to be extremely beneficial in protecting from antiviral and antifungal activity, as well as being well respected for its antioxidant properties, which may help protect from damage to the body caused by free radicals. An anti-inflammatory oil, when applied topically Oregano can be used to treat arthritis or for soothing various types of inflammation or redness / irritation to the skin. May also be used as an expectorant to help loosen or eliminate the build up of mucous and phlegm. Avoid when pregnant.
Blends well with: Lavender, Rosemary, Bergamot, Chamomile, Cypress, Cedarwood, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Essential Oils Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils - but without the 'luxe' pricetag. Since 2005 we have focused on sourcing the best quality oils - all Aroma Queen Essential Oils are 100% pure and undiluted single-source plant based oils with no additives, synthetics, fillers or preservatives.
We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils, which are generally reconstituted concoctions of chemical ingredients similar to those found in a pure plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils - usually those are only good for scent.
Our oils come from the one plant type, from a single country of origin, as outlined at the top of each listing. The reason we are able to offer them at such great value is because we buy direct, and then sell directly to you - we are not part of a larger franchise where every level along the way needs to add a percentage in profit, and only sell via our website to avoid added costs. The result is high quality oil at the right price. CLICK HERE to see our full range of oils and aromatherapy accessories.
Many of our oils are available in a range of sizes, with our standard bottle being 10ml. Many precious oils are available in a 4ml vial, and some common oils are available in a 2ml sample vial, so you can directly compare them to other oils in your collection. Many oils are also listed in a bulk 50 or 100ml size - see the drop-down menu for each listing, and if you require a larger size just email us with your requirements - contact us at [email protected]

* Must NEVER be administered internally, unless specifically prescribed for your situation by a trained clinical aromatherapist
* Must always be kept out of reach of children.
Some oils must be avoided when pregnant, and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight - even diluted. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil.
