A dosage of around 500 mg four times a day is suggested. Oregano oil will not only kill harmful bacteria in the gut but lessen the severity of the food poisoning.
  2. You can use it to avoid getting sick when flying - Anyone who travels a lot knows that flying makes you more prone to catching a cold.

Making your own

Oregano oil can be easily made at home. A simple recipe includes a handful of oregano leaves, either crushes or chopped; grape seed, olive, or almond oil; and two sanitized mason jars.

Boil water in a deep saucepan. Once the water begins to boil, turn off the flame. Place the oregano leaves inside the jar and pour your preferred oil over the leaves. Put the jar into the hot water and allow this to sit for a few minutes. Do not let this exceed more than 10 minutes though! The heat prompts the oregano to release its natural oils. Remove the jar from the pan and place it by a well-lit windowsill for one to two weeks. Periodically shake the mixture every few days. After two weeks, strain the oil from the leaves into another mason jar. Store this mixture in a cool and dark place.
