Origanum vulgare

Oregano; also known as Wild Marjoram; closely resembles its cousin Marjoram (Majorana hortensis) but is more intense like its other close relation Thyme (Thymus zygis); so is more safely used in highly diluted formulas. Primary action is on gut welfare; protecting; purifying and calming. Use in abdominal massage or judiciously internally. Add to a hand wash to disinfect. Diffuse to protect from airborne impurities. Clears breathing passages and protects from contagion. Hastens removal of body fat. Warming and comforting for complaining joints.
