Ancient Purity proudly presents this superior Essential Oregano Oil, grown and made in Greece by our good friends at Zane Hellas. Zane Hellas manufactures most-likely the most potent, purest and healthiest Essential Oregano Oil available. Greece’s climatic conditions such as plenty of sunshine, the cooling sea breeze, and the organic-matter-rich subsoil are all that make Greek Oregano the best in the world. The main component of Oregano is known as Carvacrol (A phenol that has been shown to stop the development of various types of bacteria) which provides superb antifungal action. Providing a range of health-improving properties, this ancient perennial plant has been used for more than 2,500 years! There are numerous published scientific reports on the health benefits and effectiveness of Essential Oregano Oil.  

Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is an aromatic herb that is probably most known as an ingredient in Italian cuisine. However, Oregano can be concentrated into a pure essential oil as well that is jam-packed with antioxidants and potent substances that contain proven health-improving benefits. It appears to be helpful, both internally and topically. Some of the most significant health benefits include: might reduce cholesterol, might enhance gut health, potent antioxidant, might reduce inflammation, it might help with yeast infections, relieves respiratory conditions, it is a natural antibiotic and it might support a healthy weight. We already mentioned Carvacrol but there are two more important compounds present in the plant, Thymol (A natural antifungal that might promote immune system and fight against toxins) and Rosmarinic acid (A potent antioxidant helping to protect against harm caused by free radicals). Just 1 drop of Oregano oil in a glass of clean water is enough). Scientific research has proven this ancient oil can be helpful with high blood glucose, while a very recent research at Greece’s most prestigious Aristotle University of Thessaloniki proved it potent antioxidant function against the oxidation of our blood serum’s lipoproteins. This pure oregano oil provides relief for those with respiratory and lung issues. We continue to witness incredible results from this potent Oil.

Natural Antibiotic…Oregano Oil and the Carvacrol present in it may help combat bacteria. The Staphylococcus aureus bacterium is responsible for the most common infections, resulting in ailments such as skin infections and food poisoning. One especial research looked at whether Essential Oregano Oil reduced the infections with Staphylococcus aureus in mice. It was revealed that 43% of the mice given tiny doses of Oregano Essential Oil lived past one month, a survival rate almost as high as the 50% survival rate for mice that were given regular antibiotics. You can read the scientific report on Oregano and Infections here. In addition, studies have shown that Oregano Oil can be useful against several potentially antibiotic-resistant bacteria. You can read the scientific report on Oregano and Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria here.

Bad Cholesterol… In one study, 48 participants with mildly high cholesterol were given a diet and advice on lifestyle to help reduce their cholesterol levels. Thirty-two patients were also given 25ml of Oregano Essential Oil after each diner. After 12 weeks, those participants given the Oregano Oil experienced reduced LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and higher HDL (good) cholesterol levels, compared with those participants who were only given lifestyle and diet advice. You can read the study on Oregano Oil and Cholesterol here.

Gut Health… Gut symptoms like diarrhoea, discomfort, and bloating are common and often caused by parasites in your gut. One research study administered 600 mg of Oregano Essential Oil to 14 persons with gut symptoms caused by a parasite. After 6 weeks of daily treatment, all participating people experienced an increase in parasites, and 77% were parasite-free! Here you can read more on Oregano Oil and its effect against Parasites.

Furthermore, Carvacrol seemed to reverse the events chain which can lead to fat cell formation of fat cells. Here you can read all about Overweightness and Oregano Oil.

Possible Anti-Inflammatory Properties…Inflammation in the body is linked to a number of adverse health effects. Research has shown that oregano oil may reduce inflammation. One mouse study found that oregano essential oil, along with thyme essential oil, reduced inflammatory markers in those that had artificially induced colitis. Carvacrol, one of the key components in oregano oil, has also been shown to reduce inflammation. One study directly applied different concentrations of Carvacrol to the swollen paws or ears of mice. Carvacrol reduced paw and ear swelling by 35–61% and 33–43%, respectively. Read more on Oregano and its Anti-Inflammatory Properties here.

Oregano... SuperHerb of the Mediterranean

Oregano is a woody perennial plant that grows in many parts of the world. It is an aromatic and medicinal plant with healing properties known since ancient times. It takes more than 1000 pounds of wild oregano to produce just one pound of oregano oil! Pretty valuable, don’t you think?  Oregano has been a precious commodity for over 2,500 years in folk medicine expanding the globe. There are many published scientific medical studies on the properties and effectiveness of Oregano Oil. The Main feature of Oregano, Carvacrol, has excellent antifungal properties. The Mediterranean is the synonym of Greece and Greece is synonymous to the Mediterranean. Perhaps the best Oregano in the world grows in Greece and it is known worldwide as the Greek Oregano. The climatic conditions of Greece, the sunshine, the sea breeze, and the subsoil rich in the trace are these that make the Greek Oregano the best in the world. From this Oregano, wild from the Greek mountains and organic (non-GMO) the Oregano Oil is produced, and this is the high-quality product, Ancient Purity offers. Obviously, the highest quality of Oregano plants produce the world’s best Oregano Essential Oil. You can choose Essential Oil / Softgels or both.

Oreganum Vulgare Heracleoticum-Hitrum is the variety of Oregano. (There are many varieties of Oregano but only the Greek Oregano gives the highest rates of Carvacrol). Carvacrol is the main ingredient of Oregano Oil. The higher the content of Carvacrol in Oregano Oil the more effective it is. If the Oregano Oil is low in Carvacrol then it will not be as effective regardless of the dosage usable. Thymol is another ingredient found in oregano oil. It must be at very low rates in the Oregano Oil because thymol is toxic in high concentrations. The herb is also used to treat respiratory tract disorders, gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, menstrual cramps, and urinary tract disorders. It can be applied topically to help treat a number of skin conditions, such as acne and dandruff. Oregano contains: Fibre, Iron, Manganese, Vitamin E, Calcium, Omega fatty acids, Manganese, and Typtophan. Oregano is also a rich source of Vitamin K, an important vitamin which promotes bone growth, the maintenance of bone density, and the production of blood clotting proteins. In PubMed, which is one of the globes most important scientific databases, more than 800 studies refer to Carvacrol.  This indicates that research is quite supportive of its healing capacity. To give you a sense of what I mean, Carvacrol has been proven to reverse or reduce: Bacterial infections, Fungal Infections and Parasites.

Pure Greek Oregano

Oregano a Culinary Delicacy

A member of the Origanum plant genus and close cousin to fragrant marjoram, Oregano (origanum vulgare) is often listed as one of the most utilised culinary herbs. The herb is easily identified by its oval leaves, purple-like flowers and its lovely fragrance. Native to the Mediterranean, this perennial plant happily grows in the territory’s often rocky terrain, and Oregano’s name itself comes from the Greek language meaning “Joy of the Mountains.” Characteristics…Oregano, which has very recognisable fragrance and has a slightly bitter flavour due to the rich phenolic acids concentration, can vary enormously in potency.  Several strains are uniquely mild or delicate while other strains are rather strong. Common Culinary Uses for Oregano…The herb as well as the Oil is most characteristic of Greek, Mexican, and Italian cuisine, though Oregano does make regular appearances in other world-wide cooking. This healthy herb goes very well with basil, and this herbal duo act as the foundation of numerous Italian foods: pizzas, pastas, pizza, grilled vegetables and various meat dishes. While there is not much history documenting Oregano’s worldwide use throughout the last several thousands of  years, the herb commenced to noticeably conquer North American favourites with the start of the pizza boom in the late 1940’s and 1950’s.

While the herb-loving Italians might be credited with popularising Oregano in the USA, several other regional cuisines throughout the Mediterranean had already been using the plant for hundreds of years as well. Greek cuisine is most-likely the most remarkable example, that most of the time pairs the aromatic leaves of the plant with lemon juice, olive oil and little else. This combination is then utilised in almost every fish or meat dish associated with Greek cooking, from roasted lamb to grilled meats and then some; Oregano fries, a favoured Greek-food transplant usually found in stateside Mediterranean eateries, as well as the always popular Greek salad both need Oregano defining themselves as Greek-food staples. Without the Oregano, they would just be another simple side order. Oregano herb and oil also appears in a wide range of other cuisines including Spanish, Mexican, Portuguese, Turkish and Cuban, all which make use of the leaves to add flavour to simple bean soaps and dishes, or to some meat and vegetable-based entrées. Americanised Tex-Mex cooking uses oregano (Chilli Con Carne just isn’t the same without a dash), and this super herb is added regularly to chilli powder mixtures used in cooking.

We wanted to produced our own Oregano products with a farm but no place existed that was the standard of Oregano Essential Oil as Zane Hellas. It is the most powerful, effective and clean one. Most of all we met and became friends with the guys producing this extraordinary oil. We even did a couple of events together. So, we wholeheartedly trust their product and have seen the incredible effort they put in to creating what really is, the best Oregano in the world. I have used this many times myself and have reports from friends and customers saying how effective it is.

Since Oregano was originally cultivated in Greece, the Greeks were the first to study the plant. The Greeks believed that this plant was made by the Goddess Aphrodite.  The Goddess wanted it to be a symbol of joy growing in her garden. It’s not surprising that the word “Oregano” comes from the Greek words oros, for “mountain,” and ganos, for “joy.’’  Joy of the Mountains! Ancient Greeks believed that oregano could also be used as a poison antidote. They used it to treat skin irritations and infections, dropsy, convulsions, and as an antidote for narcotic poisons. Oregano has been used in the treatment of several ailments such as diarrhoea, stomach upset and nausea. Oregano also has some antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties so you will see it used in the treatment of swelling, stiffness, muscle and joint issues and soreness. The main medical benefits of Oregano Oil have all been covered on this page. Oregano is most often used in Italian cuisine. It is a key ingredient in tomato sauces and on pizza, pizza sauces, vegetable dishes and for adding flavour to grilled meat. Oregano is a great substitute for marjoram or thyme if you don’t have these in your spice cabinet.
