My office smells a bit like gourmet pizza this month. I've been using Oil of Oregano or as one my younger clients affectionately calls it, the "pizza oil".
There are many varieties of this oil. Oreganum vulgare is the one I use and it's one of two that are known for their therapeutic benefits.
This oil promotes upper respiratory and digestive health. Most importantly for this time of year, this oil lends support to our immune systems, helping us stay free of colds and sinus infections.
For my use, and because it is a strong oil, I dilute it in a carrier oil before applying. Combining the benefits of essential oils with the therapuetic touch of reflexology creates a wonderful environment for stimulating balance, growth and healing.
