Oregano Decoction
A very strong decoction of oregano (either fresh or dried) mixed with cloves and / or spearmint and basil makes for an excellent mouthwash.

Oregano Plant
Oregano is a small herb that can be grown in pots or small plots, although it is advised that it be grown in self-contained areas as it is liable to compete with other vegetation.

Oregano Treatment
When using fresh oregano to treat rheumatism and general aches and pains, one may make a poultice by crushing the fresh leaves, and mixing them with a light oil (this is optional) which can then be heated and applied to the affected area.

Oregano Oil is one of the most effective natural antibiotics known to science.

In very old times, Oregano was believed to have magical powers, and was burnt as an incense (when dried) to ward off troublesome entities and individuals, as well as to bring about luck, or solidify and strengthen a business pact!
