I think this is an excellent product, but it is extremely powerful and I wish it came with more comprehensive information about safe and proper usage. Most of what I found online emphasizes benefits but did not discuss side effects/risks or ways to reduce or avoid irritation. I recommend this product, but with the following caveat: Get ahold of a copy of the (I think) out of print book "The Cure Is in the Cupboard" which discusses dosing and applications. It still downplays potential side effects (written by seller) but is extremely helpful. I recommend getting both the lower potency (not super strength) AND this super strength one and experimenting with different applications. You may find that you prefer/tolerate the lower strength better for some applications and reserve the higher potency for stronger needs or for internal usage in caps (goes further). One note, you can put a few drops in an empty gelatin capsule and take during/after meals rather than putting under tongue or drinking as the manufacturer directs, to reduce potential for irritation. I prefer this after trying various means. I do highly recommend for tooth and gum issues, but it can cause teeth sensitivity in super strength. 1-2 drops on gauze and left on tooth, changed a few times a day. After any acute situation is under control, you might want to switch to lower strength. Fewer side effects such as nerve irritation, shooting pains (neuralgia type), tooth sensitivity, etc. Unexpected benefits and side effects included more energy, mental clarity, and drastically decreased appetite, more stable blood sugar. In sum, extremely powerful and effective antimicrobial that works really well. Awesome product, but very powerful.

Everyone in our family uses this stuff. It works For bug bites, cankor sores, poison oak/ivy, cuts, sunburn, colds and congestion; we brush our teeth with it; an endless list of uses. You have to buck up to it's potentcy and scent. It is a 'wise ruler', an oil from the gods. We take this healer on all our outdoor excursions and carry it in our handbags. We wouldn't be without it.

I got this to use to rid my body of candida. I think it is working. I kept getting fever blisters and had what I thought was probably thrush and it has cleared that up. I am going to keep using for the candida as I feel that it is helping. Very potent!

This oreganol has been absolute life saver for me & my family...at the first sign of symptoms, we'd start dosing ourselves, which helped prevent and/or reduce the length of any illnesses. The taste will make you physically flinch, but the results far outweigh the assault on your taste buds!

I have been taking the Veggie Caps in conjunction with the Super Strength Oreganol. I have experienced amazing results. I had an anal fistula that had to be operated on in November. Six weeks after the operation, there was still mucus, puss, and blood seeping from the fistula. I thought for sure I would require a second operation. I ordered the OregaMax and the Super Strength Oil. Within just two days the mucus, puss, and blood that had been seeping from the fistula went away and I have not had any problems with the fistula since!!! Truly amazing results.

I have suffered with sinus infections for 30 + years. I have been using oil of oregeno for 3 years and have not had to use an antibiotic for infections since.
