Summary of Benefits:
Origanum vulgare (Oregano) oil: Used by humans for approximately 4,000 years and reputedly created by the Goddess Aphrodite as a symbol of happiness, the Greeks named this medicinal plant Oreganos, meaning “Joy of the Mountains.” Anyone who has seen or smelled the Oregano-covered hills and mountains of the Mediterranean during springtime can confirm its sweet, herbaceous smell. It was used widely by the Greeks and later the Roman empire to flavor fish, meat, and even wine. As a medicinal, Oregano oil is antiviral, fights infection, protects against harmful organisms, improves digestion, supports healthy menstrual function, supports immunity to allergies, increases weight loss, and combats cold and flu.
Azadirachta indica (Neem) oil: Medicinally, Neem is antiviral, anti-fungal, antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-diabetic, and blood purifier. It has been used to treat malaria, diabetes, and more than 100 other common ailments. The history of the Neem tree is as old as India itself. Often referred to as India’s secret plant, the many uses of Neem were a closely guarded secret—ranging from a medicine, a cosmetic, a nutritional supplement, and a culinary ingredient, to a fertilizer and pesticide in agriculture, and a protein source in livestock production.
Mentha arvensis (Mint) oil: Used by humans for approximately 2,000 years for everything from swollen gums, ulcers and arthritis pain, to a digestive aid, nausea relief, and the treatment of headaches, depression, asthma, and memory loss. Mentha arvensis, also known as field mint, corn mint, and wild mint is packed with vitamins and minerals.
Cinnamomum cassia (Cinnamon) oil: First recorded in Egypt around 4,000 BC, cinnamon is one of the oldest spices used by humans. Originally part of the embalming process, later used in perfumery and most commonly as a culinary spice, cinnamon’s rich history in medicine is not to be overlooked. Medicinally, high quality cinnamon oil can yield benefits within days—including decreased inflammation, increased circulation, and providing defense against free radicals in the body. In addition to relieving depression, cinnamon oil stimulates the immune system, balances blood sugar, and gives the body an energy boost.
