About: Oregano essential oil has a hot and spicy scent with pungent herbal base notes. It is steam-distilled from the plants’ fresh leaves and twigs, making an extremely potent and clear yellow oil. Please note that oregano essential oil is not the same thing as "Oil of Oregano", which generally refers to an infused oil.
Oregano essential oil may be added to air-fresheners and to cleaners for use on floors and other surfaces. While Oregano can be used in formulations, caution must be exercised to avoid irritation to the skin even when diluted. Oregano commonly causes irritation when used in concentrations above 1%.
