Wild oregano (Origanum vulgare), sometimes confusingly called “wild marjoram”, is a herb that is rich in the phenolic compound carvacrol and is characterised by a strong, bitter taste producing a slightly burning sensation in the mouth. This contrasts with the properties of Origanum majorana or “sweet marjoram”, sometimes also called “sweet oregano”, which is frequently used in the kitchen, but which is less rich in valuable compounds. The essential oil of the varieties of wild oregano mainly consists of carvacrol, followed by its precursors p-cymene en gamma-terpinene. In synthetic form, carvacrol has been used for over 50 years to clean and disinfect instruments and work areas. The ancient Egyptians already used oregano to preserve their food and to clean wounds.
Wild oregano oil is standardised at min. 70% carvacrol and max. 0.5% thymol. For many applications, thymol is less effective than carvacrol and, in contrast with carvacrol, can be irritating to the skin.
Most important characteristics of Wild oregano oil:
• Double standardised extract of wild oregano oil with a high carvacrol content
• Contains only little thymol (max. 0.5%), which, in many applications, is less effective
• Standardised extract, the best guarantee for continuity in efficacy
• In a base of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, which aids absorption
Take 1 capsule daily, during or immediately after a meal.
