The Power of Oregano and Oregano Essential Oil:

The Power of Oregano and Oregano Essential Oil:



Target: All Main Systems
Survival: Medicine

Oregano is a powerful herb producing vital enzymes( high levels of concentrates of  thymol and carvacrol) that defeat infections (both bacterial and viral). They also help strengthen and maintain a healthy immune system and respiratory system. This herb is also classified as an antibiotic herb.

Oregano has a high O.R.A.C, level of 15,300 per 100 grams
Thyme has an O.RA.C. level of near 15,380 per 100 grams
O.R.A.C. is the scale used to measure the amount or degree of antioxidants present per measurement.
Both Thyme and Oregano have similar effects medicinally on the respiratory system. and when mad as a tea and cooled can be used as a mouth rinse for mouth and canker sores.

Secondly, Oregano is powerful as a tea or connection or tincture as well for bacteria and viral infections but does not possess the high levels of concentrates as 
oregano essential oil.

Oregano Tea recipe:
2 tablespoons of dried oregano leaves preferably greek if possible, 10 ounces of boiling water let steep for 15 minutes  let cool then strain and press. drink with no milk or sugar you can add a bit of raw wildflower honey if needed. 

Oregano Concoction Recipe
boil 2 cups of water and when water comes to a hard boil add herbs an bring down heat to a low simmer and cover for about 20 minutes or until water level has reduced to half. this is stronger than a tea but less levels of concentrates than a tincture good for sore throats or stubborn or persistent colds and flues and even bronchitis
A few benefits that these powerful enzymes help are:

A Sore Throat and antiseptic mouth rinse with anesthetic properties Recipe

1 pint of warm distilled water (not boiling)
3 drops of Oregano essential oil diluted to 2-3 percent
2 drops of Thyme essential oil diluted to 2-3 percent
2 drops of clove essential oil diluted to 2-3 percent
3 drops of lavender essential oil diluted to 2-3 percent


Direction:

1/2 Gallon of Dandelion Flowers
Sugar
2 Oranges Juiced
Thinly sliced orange peals of 2 oranges
1/2 of a juiced lemon
Thinly sliced lemon peals of 1/2 lemon
1/2 inch piece of fresh Ginger root pealed
1 1/2 lbs. o sugar
1/2 oz. of dry wine yeast

Directions:
First cut off green bottoms of dandelion flower so the only color you se is yellow. place 1/2 gal. of trimmed and washed flowers in a 1 gallon crock or mason jar pour boiling water over the flowers so they are completely covered and then some. Cover and let sit for three days to begin the infusion process. after 3 days strain and press the flowers back into a pot and add ginger orange and lemon peals and juice and sugar and boil for 20 minutes. Stir well until sugar is completely dissolves  add back to crock pot or mason jar let cool add yeast. take entire mixture and add to a fermenting jug with a fitted airlock this should take about 6 days for the test to stop bubbling. the yeast has been feeding off the sugar during this fermentation process and turning your mixture into a fine dandelion wine pour in clean sterile bottle and let sit for 6 month now your wine will become fully propagated and infused naturally with the dandelions and alcohol.

Dandelion greens are a powerful medicinal herb with detoxifying properties. We may think these pesky little plants to be a nuisance but not at all not only are the flowers of a golden in color but the entire plant is gold. I mean a tremendous and beneficial plant from the root up to the flower. The can be used in tea, tonics, juices, nutritional fraps. and or even eaten raw in a salad. The best time to harvest dandelions are in the spring when they are tender. Since they are green they have a bitter taste and it is best to juice them with another vegetable or fruit e.g. carrots, apples, pears. The golden spring flowers can be used to make a dandelion wine a very powerful health tonic. They are easy to gather and can be a fun adventurous and relaxing day doing this then going home to make a juice tonic for overall health is even more hope. Nature and natural products bring true hope to anyones existing lifestyle because there is no middleman. think of it God himself created the herbs, it is through his grace that we have the desire to learn, and it is from God that people meet and learn and help each other. So why not say Thank You God in your own way for without God all this would not be possible. Also because dandelions in the early spring especially make an excellent Spring tonic. they are capable of cleansing the system and strengthening the blood. dandelion contains as much iron as spinach and almost four times provitamin A in lettuce. It also is a great source of potassium,calcium, sodium as well as vitamin C. Dandelion Greens can also be found in some health food stores.
wash them thoroughly with a biodegradable vegetable wash and rinse with cool water place in a zip lock bag for a few days for juicing.

Drying dandelion can be also good because now you have a pure natural tea for your tea ball or infuser. you can also use the dried herb as part of a tincture recipe.
